RRPA at Mallala in SA

Just six weeks remain until Alex Gobert's Road Race Performance Academy will visit South Australia's Mallala Motorsport Park on 27 March, offering the all-new RRPA rider training program in SA for the first time ever.

Gobert and his team of coaches will travel south from Sydney to provide the course, looking forward to conducting the program at one of the country's most popular Australian Superbike Championship destinations.

Participants in the full programs will undergo classroom theory sessions where they'll learn invaluable techniques that will include preparation, cornering, body position, braking, throttle control, shifting, and vision.

Personalised feedback that is guaranteed to improve your riding will be given as RRPA's dedicated group of coaches will ride on track with each group, providing influential feedback at the completion of each and every session.

Participants will be able to take part in the Level 1 or Level 2 full programs (classroom theory and on-track sessions) for $275.00, or simply book into the Development Group (on-track sessions only) for $125.00 if you're looking for extra track time.

The full program prices include a 10 page course information booklet designed for participants to use as a refresher the next time you ride at the track or on the road – the book features an outline of the techniques taught on the day.

Drinks and light snacks including fruit will be available throughout the day, and merchandise will also be for sale for those who want to take home memories of their day at RRPA.

The program has been developed to attract all abilities of riders, with everybody from first time ride day riders to aspiring professional racers invited, giving many riders around Australia the opportunity to improve their riding skills for more efficient and safer riding.

Entry forms and further information regarding the course are available on RRPA's official website at The 2009 calendar is also available on the website, with events at Wakefield Park, NSW, and Broadford, VIC, coming up early in May.

"We are especially looking forward to the trip down to South Australia, and the response so far is encouraging. I've raced at Mallala a few times when I raced Australian Superbikes, so it will be good fun to travel down there and provide our program on that circuit."
