California Superbikes School (CSS) is all set to mark its fourth successive stint in India this month at the Madras Motor Race Track (MMRT), Chennai. Keith Code- founder of CSS and arguably the best motorcycle instructor in the world will be accompanied by the 15 year old Guest Coach Joe Roberts of Team Red Bull and winner of last year’s Brno MotoGP Rookies Cup race.
Founded in 1980, the CSS has churned out world champions such as Wayne Rainey, James Toseland, Thomas Luthi and Chris Vermuelen and has trained over 1,50,000 riders from 27 countries including MotoGP, WSBK and other road racing series. Not to forget our beloved backyard bloke Sarath Kumar too has trained at CSS at one point of time.
The program is focused not only on augmenting faster riding ability but also education on safe riding skills. Mr. T T Vadarajan who’s been the organizing force behind the event said “India being a country which has the highest number of road fatalities in the world, needs initiatives such as CSS to help educate riders on safe & skilled riding practices. The Indian motorcycle industry is evolving and with bigger displacement bikes on offer, attending CSS will help new riders cope with the increase in power of these larger and faster bikes.”
The 2013 CSS in Chennai starts with a 3 day course from January 18th – 20th followed by another 3 day camp from January 25th – 27th. TVS Motors and BMW Motorrad are supporting the event with TVS providing track ready Apache RTR 180 for students and BMW providing the S1000RR for the coaches. If you’re interested to be at California Superbike School 2013, unfortunately it’s too late. As the following suggests, all spots have been booked. Maybe next year!
