The Track We’re Using
The Stockton Little 99 Raceway is a perfect place to learn because it has everything you have to face on public roads, from tight turns to the sweepers… it’s just more forgiving than a public street. The track allows us to change layouts to give you more challenges. Also, our classroom area is perfectly set for the purpose of making you a better rider!
NO extra track fees… NO bike preparation… NO track gear required… and FREE stuff
Riding and learning on a track was never more reasonable. This service suits street riders who wants to learn best-riding techniques, or are up to do their very first track day. Ordinary track days never provide step-by-step instruction. You are on your own! This “Cornering School” will provide step-by-step instruction for street riders and track riders. The class starts at 9:00am and ends at about 4:00pm. Our photographer makes FREE of charge sport photos, and we’ll bring water and snacks.
This program is big- too big to run or learn in one day, so we’ve set it up in three days, so we can go into more comprehensive subjects which will be covered over the three days school. Besides adding substantial riding techniques, you get also more riding time on our fabulous track to increase the fun factor!
Can Akkaya teaches track and street riders
The best riders on this planet are in MotoGP- but more important- we know exactly what these guys do and how to transfer it to you. MotoGP riders are extremely good with the basics, so that we think what’s good for them- is good for you. ‘Cornering School – Day 1’ teaches you essential basics, but don’t think that this is for “beginners only”- no, this is just the first part of your journey with us! The elements of ‘Cornering School – Day 2’ build up your new rider skills you’ve accomplished- and ‘Cornering School – Day 3’ is designed for those CSD-2 students whom really wants to learn to go fast by gaining safety. If you’ve mastered all three days, and your riding purpose is to do track days or even to race- then our all new ‘Day 4’ class is waiting for you!
Coach, you’re very observant, and the tips you provided when you pull riders aside are spot-on.- Bryan Harley, Motorcycle-USA Editor, Cornering School Day 1
It’s not skill level- and it’s not required to got through all three days, but each day is a will round up your learning curve dramatically. We have plenty of dates to pick from, so you have time to settle subjects, and gives us the chance to monitor your progress. We do either sideline or on the bike coaching while you do tasks on the Little 99 Raceway. This is not for speeding- this is how to find a smooth balance from entry to exiting corners, and to approach them with confidence. The coach observes and makes ‘adjustments’ step by step.
You’ll gain control, smoothness, and accuracy, which finally leads to relaxation and confidence. Coach Can is also a very good listener for your fears and ‘riding demons’. Each classroom lesson is followed by a track session where you can work on your new skills under Headcoach Can’s directions. With him you’ll learn from first-hand.
Also 1on1 or small group coaching available
If you want your coaching more personalized- this CSD program is also available as 1on1 or for small groups. The scheduling is also individual, but during weekdays only. The coaching fee depends on headcount: 1 $250, 2 $230, 3 $200, 4 and up $180. There will be also a additional track fee which will be divided by headcount.

Entrant discretion is advise: Our classes are taught up front, honest, and possibly ‘in your face’ approach. We try as much as we can, however, some of the language used could be ‘uncomfortable or offensive’ to some. Also, hard as criticism may be given, praise is just as quick and powerful. We believe you deserve a very honest approach and every word said is ‘from the heart’ to help improve and motivate. If you feel this is too harsh, then this program might be not a match for you.
