Maria Costello heads up women-only track days

Posted: 18 Sep 2013

Fancy going on a women only track day?

Popular female motorcycle racer, Maria Costello MBE is to head up two women-only track days over the next few weeks with the aim of encouraging more women to take up motorcycling and to make those already on two wheels more skilled, confident and empowered bikers.

The two events are to be held just a few days apart:

  • 30 September 2013 at Teeside Autodrome in Middlesborough
  • 3 October 2013 at the iconic Silverstone circuit in Northamptonshire

With just 25 places, the Teeside track day provides a fantastic opportunity to get on track with Maria, including one-to-one tuition.  The Silverstone event is run out of The Wing Pits & Paddock with one of the three riding groups for the day completely dedicated to women-only.

This group is aimed at female riders of all abilities, who want to enjoy their motorcycling with like-minded women under the tutelage of Maria Costello.  The £129 per person includes lengthy on track action at Silverstone, attendees will also enjoy expert tuition, a £10 food voucher to exchange in the Media Cafe, all-day refreshments in the garage areas and optional tours of The Wing complex. Mechanic, suspension and tyre services, as well as bike and gear hire will also be available on the day from IDP Moto.

Maria said: "After setting up the Facebook group ‘Woman on a Motorcycle’ I soon realised that some women bikers are looking to enjoy track days in a less intimidating environment with other women. So with the help of some fabulous people I’ve managed to put together the above events. I hope they’re a great success as then I can plan more the future and give more women what they want."
