RACE. REST. REPEAT. POWER-UP TO THE PREMIUM THROUGH THE KTM ACADEMY OF SPEED NOW.
Only a small minority get to feel the full power of a sportbike’s potential around highly modern motorsport circuits. But there is nothing to stop the rest of us from dreaming, right? Well, we now want to pull you firmly into reality with the KTM Academy of Speed.
This is not a track day. This is not by-the-numbers coaching. This is speed; KTM style.
Count on instruction from high skill instructors, as well from some of the fastest riders to have raced at the highest level, top-class circuits, faultless KTM presentation, entertainment once the exhausts have cooled and experiences that will permanently mark the psyche.
For 2024 there will be three dates in the summer. Riders will be asked for their level of experience on circuits and their goals as part of the KTM Academy of Speed. After selecting an ability level at registration, potential ‘graduates’ will be separated into three levels: Rookie, ambitious Amateur and Pro and given tuition, advice and then valuable track time.
3 WORLD CLASS CIRCUITS
The KTM Academy of Speed will gather at the Salzburgring (a former site of the Austrian Grand Prix and one of the most epic and flowing layouts in central Europe), the Red Bull Ring (the current host of the Austrian round of MotoGP™ and based in Spielberg) and the Slovakia Ring (a quick 5.9 km course opened in 2009). All three circuits rank as some of the top motorsport venues in Europe and with first-class facilities.
The KTM Academy of Speed is not just a track day. KTM details, presentation, and a promise to the passion of motorsport will be in evidence from the first moment a ‘recruit’ joins the community. MotoGP™ legends and former Grand Prix winners will be on-site and Pro instructors and KTM ambassadors will be on-hand to ensure the best possible training. Lunch, dinner, and entertainment will ensure lasting memories once the flag has fallen.
1 OR 2 DAYS
KTM Academy of Speed members will get the full treatment, from morning to night. An academy day begins with a briefing then straight into practicing, up until lunch, followed by track time, dinner and evening entertainment. A long but unparalleled day awaits and if customers are taking the ‘Pro’ option then the event stretches to two days.
The KTM Academy of Speed will operate on three levels:
Rookies: those with little or zero track time and the curiosity to sample high speed thrills in a safe and controlled way with one track session.
Ambitious Amateurs: riders with more mileage, and whom want to hone their technique or style with three track outings.
Pro: racers indulging in the full two-day schedule in an MotoGP environment and more extras.
24 PLACES PER GROUP
The KTM Academy of Speed is open to everyone with KTM bike for the track but places are sure to fill quickly for the dates and tracks. Stop wondering, take the plunge and get fast with us.
RACE. REST. REPEAT: KTM LAUNCHES BRAND NEW ‘ACADEMY OF SPEED’ TRACK SCHEME FOR 2024
Only a small minority get to feel the full power of a sportbike’s potential around highly modern motorsport circuits. But there is nothing to stop the rest of us from dreaming, right? Well, KTM now wants to pull riders firmly into reality, and the KTM Academy of Speed is a brand-new initiative launching in 2024 that will bring orange passion, service, and pulse-quickening emotions to the customer track experience.
Across three events at three world class circuits in June, July, and September 2024 the KTM Academy of Speed will invite riders old and new to the brand (and to the racetrack) to sample high-pace, high quality guidance and high adrenaline with a premium edge.
72 places per day, each day, at the Salzburgring and Red Bull Ring (both in Austria) and the Automotodróm Slovakia Ring will be separated between three groups: Rookie, ambitious Amateur and Pro. There will be instructors and KTM ambassadors catering to every level. Furthermore help and coaching from the likes of MotoGP™ stars and former GP racer and MotoGP Team Manager Mike Leitner will happen both on and off the track. ‘Pro’ riders (those with extensive trackday mileage and seeking to trim lap-times further) can bask in the full two-day schedule with enhanced technical support, and a pitbox setup with a seating and gear area. An evening dinner and entertainment program for all will foster a community spirit: the KTM Academy of Speed wants to provide first-rate tuition and create unforgettable moments both when the visor is clicked shut and when the leathers are packed away, and the stories are flowing.
The KTM Academy of Speed is the brainchild of ex-Grand Prix riders and a result of KTM’s own passion for the asphalt. In 2023 Red Bull KTM Factory Racing seized two MotoGP Sprint wins and appeared on the podium nine times, finishing 4th in the championship with Brad Binder and 2nd in the constructors standings. KTM knows how to build a bike. The Grand Prix-winning competitiveness of the KTM RC16 and the KTM RC4 in Moto3™ has accumulated numerous victories, rostrums and championships in the last 11 years.
The 2024 KTM Academy of Speed will fill up rapidly. The confirmed days are:
Salzburgring, Austria: 20-21 June 2024
Red Bull Ring, Austria: 17-18 July 2024
Slovakia Ring, Slovakia: 4-5 September 2024
The scheme is exclusive for what it offers but welcoming for riders of all skills. The KTM Academy of Speed has been created to appeal to motorcycle racing enthusiasts, KTM owners and fans of the brand, and then riders curious about their ability and who want to explore the next steps or limits.
