Road Race Performance Academy
Alex Gobert, current motorcycle journo, and ex-Australian and AMA superbike racer has launched the supporting website for his new venture – Road Race Performance Academy.
24-year-old Gobert has developed an all-new Academy to help Australian sportsbike riders and racers – from track day enthusiasts to professionals – to improve upon their skills in the racing environment.
“It’s an exciting time for my career in the motorcycle industry and I’m thrilled to be able to use Honda motorcycles at the Academy,” Gobert said.
Since the sportsbike riding development program was launched last week, an informative website is now online to give riders an in-depth look at the RRPA program.
Featuring information to give RRPA participants crucial knowledge they need before signing up for an event, the RRPA website features details on the riding development program including upcoming dates in the calendar, entry forms, news, coach profiles, a photo gallery and links featuring the academy’s industry partners.
Information is available for inexperienced riders to learn what they need for the school, while there is also plenty of information on the program structure, prizes and rules. Developed to help sportsbike riders around Australia advance, with separate sessions accommodating all abilities of riders including track day first-timers and aspiring racers, Gobert’s RRPA is set to hold its inaugural event at Wakefield Park, near Goulburn, New South Wales, on 10th September 2008.
A perfect circuit for coaching with its technical 2.2 kilometre course, Wakefield Park has witnessed many top Australian riders learn their race craft at the venue in the past with the likes of MotoGP stars Chris Vermeulen and Anthony West, along with World Supersport riders Josh Brookes and Broc Parkes, competing at the track earlier in their careers.
The RRPA coaches will assist in rider development for the first time ever as the school hosts its opening event — with one per month scheduled at circuits to be confirmed for the remainder of 2008 and a full calendar set for 2009. Be quick to get your entries in via the details on the website, with only a limited number of riders invited to each event and all riders welcome regardless of their riding experience. Factory racers and industry insiders are also scheduled to come along to each RRPA program throughout the calendar.
RRPA is supported by Honda Motorcycles, Australian Motorcycle News, Alpinestars, AGV Helmets, Dunlop Tyres, Oleon Specialty Oils and Lubricants, Gatorade and Etnies shoes.
