Former 500cc World Champion Kevin Schwantz is the Chief Instructor for a new Suzuki-sponsored riding school at Road Atlanta, with 11 school sessions covering 13 days scheduled for 2001. If all goes according to plan, each class will consist of 20-25 students who will pay $695 to ride a school-supplied Suzuki SV650, GS500, or GSX-R600 depending upon their experience level. Full riding gear will be available to students on a rental basis.<BR><BR>"This first year is going to be an experiment to see how it plays out," said Schwantz February 20. "Jeff Shepherd (Director of Sales and Marketing for Road Atlanta) approached (American Suzuki Vice President) Mel Harris with the idea during the GSX-R1000 press intro in December. Road Atlanta wants to do more stuff with motorcycles like charity events, team instructional days, etc. For me it just makes sense because Road Atlanta is only three hours from my house."<BR><BR>For more information contact Road Atlanta 1-800-849-RACE or go to .
