Rookie Road Riders Lap It Up At Silverstone

Silverstone has launched a new Rookie Ride Experience, providing the next generation of bike nuts the perfect opportunity to start practicing their skills. Teaching essential rider training in a safe and controlled environment, the ‘Home of British Motor Racing’ is a pretty cool venue to be introduced to motocycling.

Launched at Silverstone’s round of the MCE British Superbike Championship teenagers aged 13 and upwards were able to experience all that Rookie Ride has to offer in a free taster session. Following in the footsteps of their BSB idols, younger members of the family were able to hop on a 49cc Yamaha motorbike whilst receiving expert guidance from Silverstone’s fully qualified instructors.


The full Rookie Ride Experience has much more on offer as the day starts with a comprehensive safety briefing and the young riders being kitted out in all the essential gear. Following this, participants will have a full hour of riding time to learn the basics of riding a motorcycle, ranging from fundamental controls and stopping safely, to navigating a simple course layout. When the riders are ready to progress they will gradually build up speed and try out a more advance course under continuous supervision from their riding instructor.

The new Rookie Ride Experience is now available as part of Silverstone’s £50 Rookie Super Choice Voucher* This ultimate Christmas gift gives teens the opportunity to drive and ride in the tyre tracks of their heroes with a range of two and four wheeled experiences to choose from at the legendary Silverstone circuit. Experiences include Rookie Ride, Rookie Drive, the Rage Buggy Experience, a Hot Ride or Tour Silverstone.
