This year’s final Women’s Only Motorcycle Trackday with Maria Costello MBE will take place on Wednesday next week (14 October) with dozens of female motorcyclists expected to take to the track once more. Limited spaces are still available for riders to take advantage of this last opportunity this year.
The days, held by one of the fastest female motorcyclists in the world, have been a huge success, with over 100 women taking to the track across two days held so far in May and July.
Several notable names have taken part in the trackdays this year, including Winter Olympic snowboarder Aimee Fuller. Next week’s event has attracted the talented British Motostar racer Georgina Polden who will be a guest instructor and Bike World TV presenter Suzy Taylor, who is returning to Maria’s trackdays to improve her circuit riding skills.
The Women Only Motorcycle Trackdays with Maria Costello are for women riders of all ability, who want to improve their riding skills and gain more confidence on two wheels in a controlled environment, with instruction, support and coaching from Maria and her team of expert instructors. These days are perfect for female riders of all experience levels, so whether they have just passed their test and wish to gain more experience, or improve on skills already developed, all riders are welcome.
Costello was the first woman to stand on the podium in a race at the Isle of Man TT, and in 2004, became the fastest female to lap the course with an average speed of 114.73mph, and is currently the fastest female ever around the Ulster Grand Prix course, on a BMW, the fastest road race in the world. BMW Motorrad UK will be supporting the event again by supplying the instructor bikes. A range of BMWs will also be on static display for the women to enjoy.
Maria’s services to motorcycling were recognised in 2009, when she was awarded the MBE at Buckingham Palace by Prince Charles.
Maria Costello MBE commented: “My Women Only Motorcycle Trackdays at Donington Park this year have been a massive success, and we’ve welcomed an extremely encouraging amount of ladies, many of whom had not been on track before. We’re expecting another very busy trackday next week, where riders can revel in the pressure free environment and develop their skills further with our dedicated team of instructors.”
