March 2021 - Aprilia USA announces the 2021 Aprilia Racers Days, an on-track experience where enthusiasts have the ability to test-ride the latest offerings from Aprilia, in an environment that inspired the models created by the brand. In other words, the circuit: straights, corners and curbs. All participants will have the opportunity to test ride an Aprilia on-track (selection from the complete range of class-leading machines) with no stop signs, traffic signals, or automobiles. Nothing to obstruct the sensation. Pure adrenaline!
Nine track-day events will be hosted on 9 circuits all over America: the first will be on 29 March at the Buttonwillow circuit (Kern, California); 3 May, Circuit of the Americas (Austin, Texas); 17 May, Weather Tech Raceway Laguna Seca (Salinas, California); 24 May, Virginia International Raceway (Alton, Virginia); 7 June, Pittsburgh International Race Complex (Wampum, Pennsylvania); 28 June, Ridge Motorsports Park (Shelton, Washington); dates to be decided for the events at Calabogie Motorsports Park (Ontario, Canada) and Shannonville Motorsports Park (Ontario, between Toronto and Montreal, Canada); grand finale in September (date to be decided) at Barber Motorsports Park (Leeds, Birmingham, Alabama).
A fleet of class leading Aprilia V4 bikes will be on hand for the participants to get acquainted with and ride on-track. This is a unique opportunity to ride our new 2021 RSV4 Factory, the multiple award-winning Tuono V4 1100 Factory, both with semi-active suspension, and the new Aprilia 660 models. Events will be supported by Aprilia trained technicians and product specialists to ensure the best riding experience.
For Aprilia Racers Days registration each participant will be entitled to one test ride session, complimentary lunch, beverages throughout activity, as well as free track day photography.
Track events will be broken up into three 20-minute groups per hour based on riding experience, so each customer can enjoy the day at a pace that is comfortable to them. Space is very limited, to preserve the ability for everyone to demo new machines, and enjoy yourself on a less crowded circuit.
Each circuit will be supported by Aprilia Racers Days partner Pirelli, where each Aprilia RSV4, Tuono V4 and 660 will be shod with their newest sport offering, in the street to track performance-focused Diablo Rosso Corsa II tire.
For each of the events, the latest sport-oriented technical apparel and helmets will be showcased by Dainese and AGV, the leader in protection for moto and dynamic sports, which joined Aprilia Racers Days in 2019 for the first time ever as Official Safety Sponsor. The natural synergy between these two Italian brands - both known for premium products and innovation - brings a new level of excitement to the tour.
At each stop along the tour, Dainese will have master tailors from its Custom Works program available for fittings and consultations, and professionals from Dainese D-Stores will offer a demo fleet of D-Air suits for both men and women and a wide range of AGV helmets including Pista GP R, Corsa R, Sport Modular, K-5 S, and AX-9 for participants to test on the track.
