Daryl T - Chris Walker Trackday
I just come back from a track day at Bedford, and i have to say i had a great experience with you , the highlight of the day for me was Chris walker and the fact he noticed i had a bad session and could see i was a bit lacking in confidence so he went out with me and gave me a little helping hand rebuilding my confidence for a few laps, all i can say is this meant a lot to me and i hope to see you folks soon

Gualter G - Track Academy
I have been riding a motorcycle for less than a year, around 600 miles of riding experience is about what I have under my belt, so I was a bit nervous and apprehensive in going into a track day because of my very short riding experience and the fact that I was afraid I would damage my bike that still costs a bit of money. Once I got to the track at Bedford I was assigned an instructor by MSVT, Giles Olley, he explained how everything was going to work and put me at ease straight from the go. I took it easy on the first sessions we were on track, I followed his steps riding behind him, I was the slowest one on track by a mile, half way through I was in front and the instructor behind me observing my movements, he corrected my mistakes he taught me how to correct my problems, and WOW by the end of the day, I was already passing riders, I was much faster, comfortable, and the best part I was using almost of all my tyres edge to edge, and this is no doubt thanks to Giles, for his approach, his patience and his teaching skills, thanks to everyone at MSVT and Giles Olley, if people out there are considering a Motorcycle track day, MSVT if an excellent option, you will learn so much in one day you will feel like a different rider, I am definitely coming back.
Ben F - Brands Hatch BSB morning track day
To all at MSVT Brands Hatch
I'd like to say a huge thank you and a very well done to all the staff who made the morning track event go without a hitch. I do hope that this event happens again as it was a great thrill to be on circuit when it is looking so well presented. So well done to the ground staff also.
The whole event had a special feel about it, being set up on the GP circuit really made everyone feel part of the BSB Weekend.
Once again thank you very much for a great experience, can't wait for my next MSVT track day!
Tami - Snetterton Novice Day
I attended a novice only track day at Snetterton on 11th May, and I cannot praise your team of staff highly enough. What a fantastically well organised and run event. The staff made the day productive, safe, relaxed, fun, and unforgettable. I was nervous as hell in the morning and (I think his name was) Dennis (bright orange overalls) came over with a big smile, a little joke, and a friendly pat on the back and made me feel very welcome. A small gesture can go a long way when you're nervous.
Ian's talk took us through the whole circuit and was hugely helpful. My riding definitely improved after listening to him. I couldn't believe the difference it made. He didn't just tell you what to do, but WHY you needed to do it too, so it all made sense. It was only after this that something in my head clicked and I started to really enjoy the day.
Then Steve took us through body positioning. I thought I knew what to do with that, but couldn't quite work it out, and definitely didn't have the confidence to experiment on the road. His talk made sense, and he explained it all so clearly that I finally got it. I never for a moment thought at the start of the day that I'd be hanging off my bike like a monkey by the end of the day. Obviously I still have a whole world of learning to do, but I never thought I'd get as far as I did, and I can't wait to start building on this at my next track day (already booked with yourselves).
It hasn't even been a year since I passed my test, and I was just looking to slightly improve my road riding skills and general bike control/ confidence. I have come away with so much more confidence, and the improvement in my road riding is obvious. I had a chat with Steve between sessions too, he was so approachable and encouraging. He really helped me. Not least of all when my sodding wing mirror snapped!
The whole day felt very well run. It was clear that we were all under very watchful and experienced eyes, always keeping us safe. Can't be an easy task to keep a bunch of enthusiastic novices from damaging themselves or each other. Again, Steve prepped everyone really well right at the start, putting everyone in the right mindset before we got out on track.
So a big thank you to all the team!
Simon Y - Leon Haslam Trackday
The sessions by Leon Haslam were exceptional and enormously helpful. I have received instruction from a number of professionals over the years but Leon is the first one to break things down into their component parts and provide advice that was truly transformative and immediately impacted my riding. For five or more years I have struggled with a fear of low sides. The result was that I was going slower and slower and tiptoeing round the corners, waiting to come off. Leon's simple explanation of the three things that cause low sides enabled me to understand what I had done all that time ago and how to avoid this in future. This and his general instruction and understanding of the problems that lesser riding mortals were amazingly helpful and resulted in immediate improvement in my riding. My joy and pleasure on the track have returned, when previously and for some time it has been depressing and dispiriting. If you are able to tell him personally I would be most grateful - truly very, very special. His tuition made this 63 year old very happy - as one who was beginning to think he'd lost it and would have to give up on the track.
Gavin - Track Academy
I wanted to drop you a line to tell you how impressed and thankful I am to MSVT and the Brands Hatch staff for making my level 1 and level 2 academy session so fun and productive.
My instructor Mick, who I had for both level 1 and level 2 days was absolutely fantastic. Seriously, I cannot praise him enough. He really understood what I needed to get out of the academy days and made absolutely sure that I achieved it, and then some. Honestly, to anyone reading this..... The track academy days can advance you from the back of the pack right to the front. All at a safe and controlled pace. It feels good to be tearing up the 1000cc bikes on a 600cc bike, because you know it has to be the rider doing it.
I am now ready to join the advanced group, with approval from Mick himself. Never expected such a quick progression.
Thank you so much!
