We highly recommend motorcyclists to attend track days because it makes them a better rider not only on the race track but also out in the urban jungle. But not everyone has easy access to a proper and recognised race track. Emiratis, however, should be thankful because they have two world-famous race tracks – Dubai Autodrome, Dubai and Yas Marina Circuit, Abu Dhabi. So if you want to attend a track day at any of the aforementioned circuits but you can’t actually do it because you don’t have a motorcycle, fret not, Furiosa Racing got your back.
The Lease Program
Furiosa Racing has a lease program under which you can lease a race-ready Ducati 899 Panigale for AED 1,750. For the amount, you not only get the bike but also fuel, tyre warmers, and paddock stands for the track day. Transport facility to the track in Dubai is included in the aforementioned cost, however, you’ll need to pay an additional AED 325 to avail the benefit of this service for track days at YAS.
What if I fall?
This is perhaps one of the primary questions in a rider’s head who’s renting/leasing a motorcycle for a track day. So what would happen if you fall?
Well, before going out on the track, you will be asked to sign an indemnity and a damage repair form. Accident damage will be charged at cost + 15% and in the case of a total loss, a maximum of AED 35,000. The motorcycles are fitted with a full R&G protection kit and race plastics to minimise the damage caused in the event of a fall.
Track Day Schedule
To lease/book a race-ready Ducati 899 Panigale for your next track day, contact Furiosa Racing. They can also provide coaching on request. Unfortunately, they don’t give out riding gear as of now, however, this, too, will be included in their services by March 2020. Don’t worry, these guys have rich experience in their field. In fact, they are organising the 2019-20 National Sportsbike Super Series.
