Maria Costello MBE is delighted to announce two new dates in 2014 for her women only track days. Silverstone will once more host the events for women riders on 10 April and 9 September 2014 and bookings are being taken now:
“I couldn’t have been more pleased with how the first Silverstone women only track day, that I hosted back in October, was received. I was overwhelmed by the positive feedback from both the circuit and all who attended. So it’s great to announce two new dates for 2014 and give another two opportunities to those that missed the chance to come along. I also hope to see some of the same faces again too. The events are now available online and can be booked now!” explained Costello.
The events have been made available following the success of the first ever Ladies only track days held earlier this year and are aimed at allowing like-minded women a track-based experience in a relaxed, controlled and all female environment:
“My Woman on a Motorcycle (WOAM) Facebook group has grown rapidly in recent months and it’s a great sounding board to see what women really want. The recurring theme appears to be the chance to take to the track and improve their riding skills in a controlled environment with instruction from yours truly. Not all women are comfortable with a traditional style track day, as some find it intimidating, so holding women only days means those ladies have an opportunity to do something that they wouldn’t otherwise have tried. Anything that helps women get out on their bikes can only be good for motorcycling in general, so I’m looking forward to these opportunities for me and my team to provide guidance and tuition, both on and off the track.” added Maria.
Dates for other women only events, including meet ups, ride outs, touring and women only track days at Teesside Autodrome will be announced soon, on both the Woman on a Motorcycle Facebook group and Maria’s website www.costelloracing.com.
