Ducati Revs America Track Day At COTA With Jason Pridmore’s STAR School
If you’ve been eager to ride at America’s world-class Circuit of the Americas, and get equally world-class instruction to boot, listen up. Ducati and Jason Pridmore’s STAR School today announce “Ducati Revs America,” a premium two-day track experience to be held at the prestigious Circuit of the Americas (COTA) in Austin, Texas, on September 29-30, 2014. Registration is now open to the public and is limited to only 90 participants. Contact your local Ducati authorized dealer to register.
As part of the experience, riders will be treated to two days of world–class instruction from AMA Pro Racing champion Jason Pridmore; technical demonstrations from Ducati; a fully catered breakfast and lunch on both days; a Ducati gift package; as well as special guest rider appearances, dinner reception, entertainment and more.
“The world-renowned quality of Ducati motorcycles combined with the prestige of STAR School provides a truly unique and special experience for all participants,” said Pridmore. “It’s a privilege to be at the helm uniting these two world-class brands at COTA – one of the most exciting tracks in the world.”
In addition to riding on one of the world’s premier racing circuits, the $1900.00 fee secures one of only 90 available spaces in the school, which were limited to allow for longer practice sessions and to ensure a more personalized tutorial. Designed for those who are new to the track as well as experienced track riders, the two-day track school will help participants build confidence and speed, while making them safer motorcyclists overall.
Bikes of all makes and models are encouraged to join, so long as they meet the minimum criteria of safety requirements issued by COTA and Star Motorcycle School, in addition to having at least one year riding experience.
