Our 2018 Guest Instructors
We had an amazing collection of Pro riders turn out to instruct in 2017 and we are in the progress of arranging an equally talented bunch for 2018. We don't think we have done too bad with our first three confirmations...
Terry Rymer has been riding and racing motorcycles since the age of six, he has won over 200 races, and has two World Endurance, one European and one British Superbike titles to his name. Terry has also won five of the prestigious Bol dor 24 hour races, two Le Mans first places and has won World Superbike and numerous BSB races. He also has competed in Grand Prix Motorcycle competition on the fearsome 500 two stroke machines racing and testing for Lucky Strike factory Suzuki Team, he is without doubt a man that has speed and competition running through his veins.
Legendary motorcycle racer, team manager and commentator Steve Parrish will be joining us at Snetterton. Since turning professional in 1976 he became team mate to Barry Sheene on 500cc world championship Suzuki. He later became the most successful truck racing driver of all time before becoming the team manager for the UK Yamaha factory, winning the BSB championship three times. He then turned his hand to become one of the most well-known commentators on the circuit working with the BBC and Sky. Steve will even be doing one of his infamous chats at lunchtime.
Hickman took his first BSB race win at Cadwell Park in 2014. During the season he rode for both Tsingtao WK Kawasaki and RAF Reserves Honda.
He currently holds the record as the fastest ever newcomer at the Isle of Man TT, with a fastest average lap speed of 129.104 mph (207.773 km/h), and a race-average speed of 125.38 mph (201.78 km/h). He prepared for his TT race debut by travelling to the Island and driving 70 laps of the near-38 mile course in a hire car, and by watching videos. Hickman's father Dave was a Manx Grand Prix winner and entered two TTs.
Peter Hickman achieved his first international road race win at the 2015 Ulster Grand Prix, winning the feature race ahead of Conor Cummins.
Hickman won the last race of the 2015 season in November, the Macau Grand Prix, riding a Briggs Equipment/RAF Reserves BMW S1000RR. In November 2016, Hickman retained his Macau Grand Prix title, after he worked his way through from fourth position. He won by just 0.533 seconds from eight-time winner Michael Rutter.
