Circuito de Almería

Experience the BMW S 1000 RR on Europe’s most fascinating race tracks and hone your skills.

Unique location – unique track

Feel like a world champion in the Spanish sunshine
Circuito de Almería race track (Tabernas municipality), which was inaugurated in 2000, is the venue for various official races. Probably the most important one: the Andalusian motorcycle championship. Almería is known for its 365 days of sunshine a year. This fact and the wonderful geographical location make the track appealing to many teams associated with the motorcycle world championship and the British Superbike championship to come train here in the pre-season. Circuito de Almería is also well-known nowadays in the virtual world, given that the track features in an increasing number of video games.

This is what is waiting for you

Fly in and ride

Simply arrive and join one of our race track training sessions. Our partner will provide you with the latest BMW S 1000 RR and all the riding equipment. Mechatronics technicians take care of petrol, tyres and everything else so you can get on the bike straight away. Optional upgrades to slick tyres and tyre warmers available. You want to ride your own motorcycle? Not a problem.

On track with an absolute professional

A training programme has been developed in collaboration with two-time superbike world champion Troy Corser that is perfect for both beginners and advanced riders. Thanks to this programme, you can experience the newly acquired technique for yourself. Experience and feel what it means to go to the limit here on these legendary race tracks as Troy Corser’s pillion.

Absolute high-end equipment

A BMW S 1000 RR with Metzeler Racetec RR K3 can be rented on site. We also offer an upgrade to an SBK package: including pit box, paddock stand and tyre warmers. You can also upgrade to Metzeler Racetec RR Slick Compounds for even more grip.

Analysis of your training progress

All your training progress is precisely documented to guarantee the best possible improvement. Firstly, with video analysis – a tool that helps participants improve enormously. On the other hand, their riding level is recorded in a logbook in order to continue exactly where you left it in the last training session.

Training process

The clearly structured daily schedules combine theory and practice. After each theory session, participants go out onto the track to put the discussed technique into practice. A personal debrief with video analysis follows. These sessions are used to analyse and discuss the current results and goals before going back on the track.

If conditions permit, each day consists of at least 5 track sessions and 4 theory sessions. In a three-day course, this systematic approach gives you hundreds of kilometres of circuit experience and a great deal of progress.

Groups

All courses feature personal support. One instructor is responsible for three participants of approximately the same riding level who accompanies the group throughout the training days.

The training course is organised by our partner Racing School Europe. The Fuel For Life partner independently organises the experience and offers it to participants on their own behalf. All information about this offer, including details on prices, has been provided by the Fuel For Life partner.

In which language are training sessions held?

Courses are held in English. Some of our instructors also speak German, French, Dutch, Polish, Swiss German, Italian and Spanish.

Can I ride my own motorcycle?

It goes without saying that anyone who prefers to ride their own motorcycle rather than a rented BMW S 1000 RR can do so. We can, if necessary, also take care of transporting the motorcycle. If you plan to take part with your own motorcycle, please provide this information when contacting us for the first time.

Can I also bring a motorcycle by another manufacturer?

Racing School Europe is a partner of BMW Motorrad. Regardless of this, you also have the option of riding a motorbike of another brand with us. In any case, we always offer our participants the opportunity to take part in a free test session on the latest BMW S 1000 RR.

How many participants are in each group?

Inductions and instructions are provided by an experienced instructor for a maximum of three participants per group. Each participant can rely on their own coach for debriefings and analyses throughout the course.

We also offer optional, individual support as part of one-to-one sessions. Here we make sure to find a trainer specially tailored to your driver level. We will determine this together with you in advance. 

What happens if it rains?

The BMW S 1000 RR has a rain mode setting. In wet conditions, we can easily fall back on our RR fleet with rain tyres. Consequently, we are not weather-reliant. This service, like Metzeler rain tyres, is included in our motorcycle rental.

Are photos and videos permitted?

We work with professional photographers at our events. They take photos and videos of your training. You will receive information on the corresponding photographer and the process on site.
