RR Experience

*** 2016 events now complete ***

TRACK DAYS & TEST RIDES.

With an incredible level of performance and “tech features”, the S 1000 RR is a motorcycle that can only be truly appreciated on the racetrack. That’s why we are offering test rides on the class leading “RR” as well as other performance BMW models like the S 1000 XR, S 1000 R, K 1300 S, R 1200 GS and the R 1200 RS at Phillip Island, Sydney Motorsports Park and Queensland Raceway. If you have dreamt of riding the latest incarnation of the multiple award winning “RR” on a track, your dreams have just come true!

As well as test rides, BMW is also offering a Track Day option, for owners of all brands. The RR Experience Track Day sessions are unique, and our format really suits riders that have never done a track day before. For 2016 we will now offer two Track Day groups, Level 1 for novices and first times and Level 2 for riders with more experience. All riders must be fully licensed, bikes must be road registered and pass a scrutineering check (no track/race bikes or slick tyres).

California Superbike School staff as well as special VIP guests will be on hand to give tips throughout the day. Isle of Man champion Cam Donald will be at SMSP and Phillip Island while MotoGP winner Chris Vermeulen will be at Queensland Raceway. There will be product feature presentations as well as ABS/Traction Control demonstrations throughout each day.
