The legendary Kevin Schwantz had one goal in mind when he started the Schwantz School – create more confident and safer motorcycle riders.
Schwantz, a 1993 World Champion (500cc), doesn’t call the program a motorcycle racing school, but rather a schooling that takes place on "miles of asphalt without cars and other distractions."
Kevin Schwantz addressed an enthusiastic gathering of motorcyclists, congressional staff, and military commanders at the third annual National Capital Region Joint Services motorcycle safety event held Friday, May 1, 2009 at the Pentagon in Washington, DC. Schwantz is the 1993 500cc World Champion and founder of the track-based Kevin Schwantz School, located at the Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham, Ala.
The Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) today announced its recognition of the Kevin Schwantz School, making it the first outside training curriculum to receive this distinction by the MSF. Founded by 1993 500cc World Champion Kevin Schwantz in 2001, the school has recently relocated to the Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham, Ala.
