Signs warning of the closure have been on approach roads for the last few weeks.
With International Women’s Day recently being held, IAM RoadSmart has announced it has a women-only motorcycle skills day coming up this summer – being led by Queen of Bikers Maria Costello
MBE.
Maria, former Guinness World Record holder and IAM RoadSmart riding ambassador, will lead
the Skills Day at Mallory Park, near Leicester, on Tuesday, July16.
The Skills Day is
open to anyone with a
full motorcycle licence
and any road-legal mo- torbike. You do not have
to be an IAM RoadSmart member to take part. Don’t forget that spaces are limited, so don’t waste any time to sign up.
During a day that aims to be fun as well as safe, riders taking part can expect to learn new techniques and gain greater understand- ing about the capability of their motorcycle from Maria herself.
Expect to learn about your own capabilities and that of your machine; entry, apex and exit points, how they vary from road to circuit; where to brake, when and how much to brake, how it feels in an emergency; con- trolled, progressive, smooth cornering; and how to use the accelerator or throttle to add stability to the motorcycle when cornering.
The chance for women bikers to gain expert tuition from Maria with IAM RoadSmart is a special one and not to be missed.
She has made more than 40 starts at the daunting Isle of Man TT and returned there last summer. She became the first woman ever to claim a podium at the 2016 Classic TT alongside 23 times TT winner John McGuin- ness.
For five years Maria held the Guinness
World Record as the fastest woman to lap the Isle of Man TT course when she lapped the Snaefell mountain course at an average
speed of 114.73 mph in 2004.
Last year Maria became the first
female President of the TT Riders Association in its 67 year
history, and this year she will be back racing at all three international road races;
the North West 200, Isle of Man TT and Ulster Grand Prix.
She said: “I am really looking forward to meeting
and riding with women bikers at Mallory Park this
summer. It’s a great chance for women riders to learn at
their own pace, to build up their confidence, discover what they and
their bikes are capable of, and most of all have fun in a safe way.”
