``Gain the skills and confidence to begin exploring``
Desert Rose Racing holds practice days on various dates throughout the year. These days are aimed at riders who want to be able to get out and ride their dirt bike and also to be able to get some practice riding in, which will allow riders to try out new found skills, without it being in a “race” environment!
Practice days are much more “laid-back”, we run them from 11-4 p.m. and you get to turn up at whatever time you like and to ride for as long as you like.
The track we use is a marked course, but we have different difficulties set-up to suit everyone’s riding skills. So you can either take it nice and easy and have a great ride with your friends or for those of you who really want to be pushed, we also have an “Extreme” section all ready for you.
The cost for a practice day is £45 on the day.
Please be aware that noise regulations do apply and we will be checking!!
