Penguin Roadracing School is in its 34th year of helping new riders learn the basic skills necessary for a successful racing career. They also tutor the experienced racer wanting a competitive edge to get to the front of the pack. They also welcome street riders who would like to improve their everyday riding skills and experience the race track in a non-racing environment.
|Curriculum / Course Desription
Penguin offers several classes in two types of events — schools and track days. Racing schools lead to getting certified for a racing license and have two flavors – Basic and Advanced. The basic course includes Jerry Wood’s “Basic Road Racing,” classroom instruction (discussing bike preparation, riding techniques, flags, rules and track survival) and lots of riding time. The advanced course is for riders who have completed the basic course and is focused on lowering lap times and includes classroom, detailed track walk, guided riding time, open practice, and individual tutoring.
Riding Schools also come in two versions, one aimed at Street Performance and the other a Pro School. The street performance has a focus on a range of skill improvements usable in all types of riding. The pro course is for racers and focuses on one thing: how to drop lap times. Riders are separated by skill level to ensure that everyone is comfortable and in an environment conducive to learning. Both classes provide a video breakdown of the racetrack which provides a great way to clarify your track strategy at NHIS.
