Still time to book on Women Only Motorcycle Trackdays with Maria Costello at Donington Park!

There are still limited spaces remaining on the first Women Only Motorcycle Trackday with Maria Costello MBE at Donington Park on 5 May.

These unique trackdays cater for women motoryclists of all abilities, and allow riders to improve their skills and gain more confidence in a controlled environment, with instruction, support and coaching from Maria and her team of expert instructors.

The trackdays are broken down into groups, with each rider receiving a total of seven 20 minute sessions each. Workshops include track familiarisation and positioning on track, body positioning, throttle control and braking but coaching will be tailored to suit the rider’s needs.

Each day takes place on the full length Grand Prix circuit at Donington Park, one of the most enjoyable circuits in the UK to ride, and renowned as a biker’s haven. Track activity starts at 9am and finishes at 16.50, and a final briefing, certificate and awards presentation all take place once the on track activity has concluded. Maria’s trackdays are renowned for being great fun on track with a great atmosphere and strong social element off track.

Added to the package is complimentary lunch, free admission for guests and spectators, while riders can also take advantage of tyre advice and facilities, and photography all day. All riders will receive a complementary 5x7 digital photo which can be collected throughout the afternoon.

Two further Women Only Trackdays will take place at Donington Park on July 15 and October 14.

Costello is one of the world’s leading female motorcyclists, famed for her exploits at the Isle of Man TT where she became the first woman to stand on the podium and lapped the course in a record breaking average speed of 114.73mph in 2004. Her services to motorcycling have been recognised by both the FIM and by Royalty – Maria was awarded the MBE in 2009, and was presented with it by Prince Charles at Buckingham Palace.

Maria Costello MBE commented: “Just 20 days remain until our first Women Only Trackday at Donington, and we’ve had a lot of interest from female riders who are both new to motorcycling, or those who want to take their skills to the next level. My team of instructors and myself are dedicated to helping each rider improve their skills and enjoy two wheels with other like-minded riders at the same time. The response from past events has always been so positive it would be great to help more women enjoy their motorcycling, meet more women riders and boost their confidence so that they continue riding on the road for a long time to come.”

Spaces on the Women Only Motorcycle Trackdays with Maria Costello at Donington Park are available for £199. For more information visit www.nolimitstrackdays.com/womenonly or call 01727 827794.
