Salzburgring

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

At the heart of the race, at the heart of nature

Sprints backed by an Alpine panorama
Anyone hearing Salzburg and merely thinking Mozart and classical music festivals has not yet seen this fantastic race track at the heart of Salzkammergut. And we can only recommend you head down there as quickly as possible. With its ultra-fast sections and the famous “Memphis” turn – one of the fastest right-hand turns on the world’s sprint circuits – Salzburgring has enjoyed the status of being a kind of pilgrimage venue for motorsport enthusiasts since 1969. Natural grandstands above the race track provide a breathtaking view of the race track with a length of approximately 4.2 kilometres, featuring 12 turns that are not only very fast, but also challenging when it comes to handling them.

This is what is waiting for you

World-champion experience

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.

On track with an absolute professional

Experience the newly acquired technique for yourself: live to see and feel first-hand what it means to  take it to the limit here on this legendary race track when you ride as Troy Corser’s pillion.

Absolute high-end equipment

Rent a BMW S 1000 RR with Metzeler Racetec RR K3 from our local partner. 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 two-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. 

One-to-one training sessions are also available to provide maximum support. In this case, participants will be assigned their own instructor, who is ideally suited in terms of skills and experience.

Who is the organiser?

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.
