From a press release
issued by PTR Honda
FIM Supersport World Championship racer Sam Lowes (11).
THE MOTORCYCLE PERFORMANCE SCHOOL has been set up by multiple World Supersport race winner and Championship leader Sam Lowes along with UK tuning house PTR to offer you advice to improve your riding and bike set up.
Sam will be giving direct advice to any rider or racer that joins the school. This is personal advice from one of the best and fastest racers in the world. Corner entry, throttle control, braking, starts, reducing lap times, fitness training or even celebration wheelies are all fair game to ask and he will respond personally.
And for those riders who want advice on motorcycle set up, ranging from suspension settings to tyre pressures, right through to seating position and state of engine tune, PTR, the 18-time race winning World Supersport race team, is offering technical advice
It is simple to use and aimed at any serious rider, track day addict or racer wanting to improve riding skill and/or bike performance.
Lowes said: "The system works like this. You join and [pay a fee]. That gets you into the club and gives unlimited access. You'll also get a complimentary ONIT beanie to keep you warm at events in the typical British summer.
"You will be supplied an email address that you can send enquiries to; with pictures if needed. If it is a riding enquiry then I will answer, if it is technical then PTR will answer. If we need to speak to you on your requirements, we will call you and chat it through.
"I will be giving you the best advice I can on how to improve your riding while the PTR guys will talk technical details and set up. It is that simple - although users should note due to our own racing schedule, we may not be able to respond instantly, although we will do our best to answer within 24-48 hours.
"We hope that we can help road riders, track day riders and racers get more from their riding and bikes."
The technical advice will match Sam's excellent riding service and work hand in hand with it. PTR's Jason McClean said: "There is no one better than PTR to offer technical advice, with our depth of experience and understanding of everything from engines through suspension, tyres, electronics and everything else.
"PTR will help you maximise the performance of your bike for whatever you use it for. It doesn't matter whether it is a Honda, Ducati or anything else."
This is not a forum or discussion board; this is an exclusive 1-on-1 riding and tuning school delivered by two of the best names in World Championship racing.
