Killarney’s Motorcycle Track Schools are about enjoying your bike, about riding up to a standard of excellence instead of down to a speed limit, amidst the camaraderie of like-minded fellow riders – but road safety is at the core of these events. So important are our road safety initiatives at Killarney that the first two events of 2022 are both focused on this aspect of motorsport, which is why we welcome the increasing number of young riders taking part in our Track Schools because they (and in many cases their parents) are serious about learning how to survive on South Africa’s roads.Once you have mastered the coordination of twist-grip, gear lever and clutch, riding a motorcycle is not as complicated as it looks – until something goes wrong. Then you don’t have time to think; staying alive is a matter of reflexes and muscle memory.Which is why the best place to practice those reactions until they become second nature is at the WPMC Motorcycle Track School sponsored by Harley Davidson Cape Town on Saturday 22 January from 9:00am to 1:30pm.Riders are seeded into three groups – Beginner, Medium and Fast. Full riding gear is required for all riders except those in the Beginner group, where basic gear is acceptable, and there are hugely experienced road and race riders on hand for advice on riding technique and street savvy, in a safe and controlled environment.There’s no reason to ride outside your comfort zone; many participants ride no faster than they would on the road – if it weren’t for the speed limits, which of course Killarney doesn’t have!Due to Covid-19 restrictions strict health and safety protocols among participants must be observed. These include compulsory wearing of face masks at all times, strict cleaning protocols and temperature screening of all participants attending.Arrival time on Saturday 22 January is from 7:15am to ensure the gate entry staff have enough time to check entrants’ temperature etc.Riders will be seeded into three groups – Beginner, Medium and Fast. Full riding gear is required for all riders except those in the Beginner group, where basic gear is acceptable.The entry fee is R650 and pre-booking is mandatory. Enter online at https://events.scheduleme.co.za/wpmc/. Only online entries will be accepted and, as always, places are limited. No competition licence holders may participate – the riding school is open to road riders and track day riders only. For more information contact Wayne Arendse on 071 866 8399.


Mad Macs Motorcycles Powered Riding School
Killarney International Raceway’s 3rd Motorcycle Track School for 2021, powered once again by Mad Macs Cape Town, will be run in the morning of Saturday 24th April from 8am until 1.30pm. This will be your 3rd chance for track time on your street-bike this year – and the best way to get revved up for the summer riding season on the street.

Give yourself a refresher course in safe riding, with input from experienced road and racing instructors, practice hard braking and accurate placement on the road in a safe and controlled environment, while enjoying your bike in the manner it was intended to be ridden.

Sadly, NO SPECTATORS will be allowed, and strict Covid-19 strict health and safety protocols among participants will have to be observed. These include compulsory wearing of face masks at all times, strict cleaning protocols and temperature screening of all participants attending.

Riders will be seeded into three groups – Beginner, Medium and Fast. Full riding gear is required for all riders except those in the Beginner group, where basic gear (helmet, jacket, gloves, jeans and boots that cover your ankles) is acceptable.

Both road and race bikes are welcome but no current racing licence holders will be allowed to ride. Scrutineering will take place from 8am until 9:00am. No loud exhausts – bikes that hit the red line on our officially calibrated noise meter will be removed from the circuit.
