This course is all about track time, riding techniques and simply enjoying the racetrack. The staff at the Apex Racing Academy takes a lot of pride in helping each of our students personally. They come from all different riding and racing backgrounds, but most of them are either current or former championship-winning racers. Our aim is to give you an enjoyable and memorable time.

Sameer Venugopal, Chief Instructor also known as Biker Stig is present at each one of the courses during the season. He has instructed motorcycle advanced riding techniques to over 500+ different motorcyclists at the Academy and numerous riders through online forums. our students will tell you that they have learnt more about handling a motorcycle in one day at Apex Racing Academy than they had in years of day to day riding. A usual comment: “I did not know that I could learn so much in one day. I’d strongly recommend it to any rider. And it is a blast…”
On a school day, Sameer teams up with 4 other instructors and 4 demonstrators who also possess a strong background of racing and advanced riding teaching experience. Henna, our longest serving instructor who has instructed at Apex Racing Academy since its inceptions and Sreekumar Gopinathan or better known as PONCHO, one of our most active racers, who still races in the Indian National Racing championship are a couple of examples of the unparalleled, high caliber instructors who will teach and coach you through every step of your course.
