Steve Parrish, ex motorcycle and truck racer, former team mate to Barry Sheene and now TV presenter has agreed to champion TVAM’s RideUP scheme. This sponsors young riders, under the age of 30, who passed their A2 test within the past 2 years to take their IAM RoadSmart Advanced Rider Course. The candidates also get to go on both the TVAM Advanced Braking and Cornering courses held on private roads. Finally on passing their advanced test they also get a free Track Skills Day, all paid for by the club. More details of the scheme and how to apply are at


Steve said, “There are many skills to riding well on the road. Some can be copied from watching riders on the race track but I know from having done both, many aren’t – including your lines through bends and dealing efficiently with traffic. RideUP is a brilliant scheme which will let you into the secrets of Advanced Riding and make you safer on the road.”
