Mid-Ohio KTM School

KTM Motorsports and The Mid-Ohio School are proud to announce six KTM Race – Orange Fly and Ride dates for the 2011 season.

Earlier this month the pair announced the continuation of their partnership through 2012, a partnership that began when KTM Motorsports was named the official motorcycle of the The Mid-Ohio School back in 2008.

The KTM Race_Orange Fly and Ride Program is a unique opportunity for participants to ride KTM motorcycles like the 1190 RC8 R and the 990 SM R on the Mid-Ohio race course. KTM provides the motorcycles and handles the fuel, tires and other maintenance throughout the day, allowing riders to truly ‘arrive and ride.’ The Mid-Ohio School’s track coaches also offer their expert instruction.

The initial 2011 dates for the six Fly and Ride programs offered this year are Monday, April 25; Monday, May 2; Wednesday, June 1; Thursday, July 21; Monday, July 25; and Wednesday, August 31.

Brett Roubinek (General Manager of The Mid-Ohio School’s Performance Track Riding program) says: “The Fly and Ride program continues to expand as our riders’ demand exceeds the number of dates we offer each year. We’re up to six dates this year.

“Riding a top bike on a top track is a fantastic opportunity that we’re able to offer our customers at a great value with KTM’s support.”

New for 2011 as part of the partnership extension, KTM Motorsports and The Mid-Ohio School offer customers the option to rent a KTM 1190 RC8 R during any of the 2011 Performance Track Riding dates, for either a full- or half-day.

This addition extends the number of opportunities a rider has to pilot a KTM at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. A full schedule of track days is available online at midohioschool.com/schedule.
