The 1st Training Carnival at Guangdong’s Sanshui Circuit and the 2nd at Sichuan Chengdu rec’d such great reception and popularity that gave all parties a boost of confidence in these training courses and bikers carnivals.
The 3rd and final round of the Wuyang Honda-BG advance Motorcycle racing training course and Bikers carnival was held at one of China’s most strategically important Motorcycle area : the vast Mid West region of Shanxi Province’s capital city - Xi’an’s Weishuiyuan Circuit.
The Final Round of this carnival also gave Wuyang Honda a great opportunity to introduce their new models line up for their 2011 season, so dealers, Honda Bikers’ club managers and bikers from the neighboring 5 provinces were invited to this Festival, a couple hundred of Honda people attended the Festival with 46 riders from Shaanxi’s Xian and Baoji, Hunan, Hubei, Guizhou, Gansu taking the 2 days training course.
Due to there was also the Asia-FIM, CSBK races at Zhuhai Circuit over the same weekend, so BG’s Stunt pro Sammo has to remain in Zhuhai to perform his Stunt shows during the weekend, so BG’s KC, Mark and 3 of BG’s senior mechanics traveled to Xi’an on Thursday while Steven has to travel from Hong Kong to Xi’an via Guangzhou on Friday, but due to the big number of students taking the training course, so BG’s long time Xi’an based Race and Stunt rider Zhang Bo was recruited as the assistant Instructor for the weekend.
Wuyang Honda has spend a lot of resources on this year end last event and the Weisuiyuan circuit was all made up in Honda colors, Banners and flags was everywhere for the eyes to see, Honda’s 2011 New bikes line up include the most important Huanying 150 and their new Scooter.
On Sat morning, after the Classroom Session, Most of the Wuyang dealers were invited to test ride the new Huanying 150 and everyone was impressed with the power and handling of the new bike, this was also seconded by BG’s Stunt Pro Mark as he took the new bike out to perform some of his usual Stunt in front of all the spectators.
The Students from this training festival were more mature riders with a lot less young riders in the group. There were 2 lady riders who also joined the training and everyone was really focusing on the lectures and a lot of questions were asked and answered.
The Sat track sessions went without a glitch, and to everyone’s surprises, no one crashed at these sessions, but we can all see that this groups of 46 riders were more street riders then some of the previous younger riders that has had Race track experience.
Sunday morning, the Circuit was shrouded with fog so everyone spend a longer time at the classroom’s yesterday debriefing and preparing for the Sunday sessions.
Most riders are all excited from the day before and many more questions were asked showing that these riders do spend a big part of the previous evening thinking about what they’d learnt yesterday.
Again, the Sunday morning track sessions seen great improvement on most of the riders and by early afternoon, every rider has picked up speed and more then ½ were hanging off their bikes with knee sliders on the ground for the 1st time in their life.
There were again a challenge race for each of the 3 group of riders and 5 fastest were picked to go into the final Challenge.
At the Super Challenge race, there was some fierce dicing in the front with 3 young riders coming out to be winners. But the standard of all the riders has improved so much that everyone present at the last race was impressed with the short time they took to become quite seasoned riders with much more confidents then the morning before.
The Grand Festival ended with another Banquet that each table was served with a whole roasted lamb as in typical North East banquet fashion, but all BG instructors didn’t get to taste much of the fine food as every student from each group took turn coming to take photo and drank with the instructors.
The evening ended with some emotional farewells as everyone was very appreciative with what Honda has offered them this impossible chance to be trained at a proper circuit and bear hugs were everywhere with BG instructors as all the riders were thankful for what they’d learnt within this short period that they’re sure that will benefit them for the rest of the life.
Honda and Wuyang was made to promise that they’ll organize the same event in 2011 before we’re let go.
BG would like to thank Honda China, Wuyang Honda and the Weishuiyuan Circuit for the great time that everyone at BG has the last weekend and we’re all looking forward for 2011 so that we can meet up with all the riders and friends again.
