Female bikers have the unique chance to ride with Maria Costello MBE this summer, at a unique women-only Skills Day with road safety charity IAM RoadSmart.

Maria, who is also IAM RoadSmart’s Rider Ambassador, has made more than 40 starts at the world famous Isle of Man TT and will be back there this summer, became the first women ever to claim a podium around the course – with third place in the Ultra Lightweight race of the 2005 Manx Grand Prix. For five years Maria held the Guinness World Record as the fastest woman to lap the Isle of Man TT course, when she lapped the Snaefell mountain course at an average speed of 114.73 mph in 2004. And this year Maria continues on two and three wheels but will also embark on a season driving an Austin A30 car in the Historic Racing Drivers’ Club (HRDC) Championship.

Maria’s Skills Day takes place at Thruxton Circuit on 11 July. Riders attending will enjoy one-to-one riding instruction and tips direct from Maria herself. Places are limited, so anyone interested is advised to book as soon as possible.

Riders attending the Skills Day will ride their own your motorcycle and the day is carefully structured to develop skills in a modular way. Most attendees end the day with a much greater understanding of their machine and themselves as riders.
