California Superbike school is back!

The California Superbike School returns to India for the fourth time in three years.

After three very successful stints since arriving on Indian soil for the first time in 2010, the world-renowned California Superbike School (CSS) is all set to return for its fourth successive year at the Madras Motor Race Track (MMRT) in Chennai this month.

The California Superbike School was founded in 1980 by Keith Code and has trained over 1,50,000 riders in 27 countries including riders in MotoGP, World Superbikes (WSBK) and various other road-racing series.

CSS is being supported by TVS Motors and BMW Motorrad with the former providing track-ready Apache RTR 180 bikes for the students and the latter providing BMW S1000RR bikes for the coaches.

The first year of CSS's presence in India in 2010 marked the school's very first foray into South East Asia and TT Varadarajan, the man spearheading the entire operation, is proud of the growth it has achieved.

“We brought the school to India to satisfy two main goals: One is to provide the right skill sets that are necessary to perform at the highest level of motorsport to talented youngsters who do not have access to world class training," said TT Varadarajan.

"The other is to improve the riding skills of every motorcycle rider to make him/her conscious of safe riding practices, which is the responsibility of any motorcycle rider on the road."

The lead instructor for this edition of the school is Joe Roberts, a 15-year old Red Bull prodigy personally coached by Keith Code and a front-runner in the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup, a support series to MotoGP.

The school runs over two weekends and offers four different levels of training over three days on each weekend.

The 2013 CSS in Chennai kicks off with a three-day course from January 18-20 followed by another one from January 25-27.
