The British franchise of the California Superbike School has ceased trading after 22 years on on-track instruction.
The British franchise of the California Superbike School has ceased trading after 22 years on on-track instruction.

The school, which had been based at Silverstone Circuit, had spent the past 22 years teaching advanced motorcycle handling techniques on track.

A statement sent out by the school, first reported in British Dealer News, blamed both falling numbers of riders taking up the courses and the effects of Brexit on the current state of the business. It read: “After nearly 23 years the company has been forced to close due to the effects of Brexit and consequential falling numbers attending the school.

“This will mean that Superbike School Ltd (SSL), as a company with whom you contracted will be unable to refund you the monies we agreed to refund you at the last school.

“There is some possibility that a new company will be looking to take over the reins of running the school and I am hopeful that they will in some way be able to help ease your pain.

“As you will understand, this is tempestuous time for all concerned and we are trying to be mindful of our responsibilities to you our students, our team, sponsors and employees as well as to the outside world.”

The statement went on to point out that California Superbike School (CSS) is a trading name of California Superbike School Inc. of the USA and, other than acting as a franchise of the school in the UK, Superbike School Ltd is financially unrelated to CSS USA.
