We’ve got some good news if you want to brush up your track riding skills! The California Superbike School has been relaunched in the UK. The India edition since then was organised by the Australian team but now that the CSS is back in UK, we expect things to change in India as well. But no word on the Indian episode has come out as of yet.
Back in October last year, it was revealed the Silverstone-based riding school had gone into liquidation – but it’s just confirmed it’s returning for 2020. A statement sent out by the school at the time blamed both falling numbers of riders taking up the courses and the effects of Brexit on the current state of the business.
It read: “After nearly 23 years the company has been forced to close due to the effects of Brexit and consequential falling numbers attending the school. This will mean that Superbike School Ltd (SSL), as a company with whom you contracted will be unable to refund you the monies we agreed to refund you at the last school.
“There is some possibility that a new company will be looking to take over the reins of running the school and I am hopeful that they will in some way be able to help ease your pain. As you will understand, this is tempestuous time for all concerned and we are trying to be mindful of our responsibilities to you our students, our team, sponsors and employees as well as to the outside world.”
The statement went on to point out that California Superbike School (CSS) is a trading name of California Superbike School Inc. of the USA and, other than acting as a franchise of the school in the UK, Superbike School Ltd is financially unrelated to CSS USA.
But now, the CSS is back in the UK! Here’s Founder Keith Code talking about the news:
At the minute, the school is not taking bookings for its scheduled UK School dates as a result of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. However, you can register your interest on the website and be contacted ahead of the school reopening.
