The following is from Speed Academy…
Speed Academy has announced its 2014 schedule. The racetrack-based performance riding school is run by Daytona 200 winner Jason DiSalvo, along with former AMA Pro Racer and current Triumph Racing crew chief Brian Stokes. Speed Academy will be visiting NOLA, Road Atlanta, Barber and Road America, all of which have been stops on the AMA Pro Road Racing calendar. Also featured is JenningsGP in Florida, which is a favored off-season testing and training facility used by many professional teams.
Of the seven events offered by Speed Academy in 2014, five will be held in conjunction with Sportbike Track Time weekends. These dates are one-day schools, allowing students the opportunity to sign up for class on Saturday, Sunday or both. Each day's enrolment is limited to five Intermediate level riders and five from the Advanced group.
The other two Speed Academy weekends will be standalone events, where for an entire weekend, the only participants are students and staff. These private, intensely focused standalone classes have been described as "An intense environment of high performance rider training." Both standalone dates will be held at Jennings GP in Florida and are limited to twenty students total. Due to the unique format of this program, riders of any skill level from beginner to AMA Pro can be accommodated.
The 2014 Speed Academy schedule is as follows:
May 3 & 4 NOLA, with Sportbike Track Time
May 17& 18 JenningsGP, standalone
June 2 & 3 Road America, with Sportbike Track Time
August 16 & 17 Road Atlanta, with Sportbike Track Time
September 27 & 28 Barber, with Sportbike Track Time
October 18 & 19 JenningsGP, standalone
November 8 & 9 Road Atlanta, with Sportbike Track Time
Pricing at the NOLA, Road Atlanta and Barber Dates is $349 per day for the Speed Academy class, which is in addition to the Sportbike Track Time entry fee for that event. The Road America school is $449 per day, plus the Sportbike Track Time entry fee for that event. Cost for the standalone two-day courses at JenningsGP is $1195 for the weekend and there are no additional fees.
