Getting into racing – ACU test day

Getting into racing may seem difficult for most riders but it’s not as far away as you might think.

Any rider who wants to get into track racing can do so and we created a guide on how to get into motorbike racing to give some insight into racing at the likes of Donington, Mallory Park and Brands Hatch.

And to get in the saddle at famous UK race tracks – separate of track days – you’ll need to get a race licence.

That was the story behind a cold, windy and wet Sunday at Donington Park where a group of hardy novices took to the track to get their licence under the watchful eyes of ACU instructors, of which, Lewis Osler was one.

Lewis is one of The Bike Insurer’s sponsored riders for 2015 and, as well as helping new riders complete their ACU licence, he will also compete in the 2015 Thundersport GB 500.

Here, Lewis gives some insight into what to expect on a test day.
