Racers - work on skills in a non race environment
Many racers ride at NHMS all the time and are focused on lap times. A day a Thompson with our expert staff can help you develop your riding without the pressure of having to do fast laps. There will be a special group just for racers where you can work on critical skills like body position, vision and critical techniques at the end of braking & start of acceleration. We've had many racers make personal breakthroughs in their riding that results in big improvements when they got back to NHMS - we can help!!
Top shelf staff - we have fantastic rider coaches who can offer unique insights for riders at all levels! Riders are broken into groups both on track and in the classroom according to experience and ability. All groups have access to more than a dozen championship- winning expert coaches for both classroom and on-track instruction. Don't miss the 1 on 1 opportunities!
Developing skills for both track and street is the theme of our track experience classroom courses. Will you go fast out there? Yes, as fast as you want, and our experienced crew can answer any questions you have about how to go fast.....but our classes between sessions will also help show you how to use the racetrack to make you more confident and safer in those emergency situations on the street! We utilize the unique Thompson skid pad area to give student the opportunity to try some drills that have proven to make a huge difference in body position in years past - DONT MISS IT.
