Simple techniques with instant results, how good is that! 5 Star Review
Posted by Kevin McWilliams on 21st Aug 2013

Having read the book and watched the video several times I’ve realised that a lot of my riding and racing technique was not really working for me.
Putting into practice some of the lessons at my last track day has shown me how much more there is to this sport than I had realised.
Simon’s little tips along the way, such as loading the pegs to avoid wheelies on crests/acceleration etc, have been a revelation. Simple but effective.
Both the book and the DVD are well presented and easy to digest… not always quite so easy to put into practice (Got to be braver at times) but now I have a guide to follow.
I’d recommend this package to all riders on a modern race bike who want to improve their skills in a structured fashion.
Thanks Simon and your MotoVudu advice.
Can’t wait for more track time…

Gave thought to the instructions when lapping round Donington, and made me quicker and improved my confidence.

Bought again! 5 Star Review
Posted by Rory Colville on 23rd Jul 2015

I bought the book and DVD bundle a while back and lent them out to friends who subsequently lost them. Having found the book and DVD really useful, my riding and lap times had improved so I didn’t mind too much.
But just recently I started to go slower on track and couldn’t figure out why, so I bought them again. Having got my head back around Simon’s teachings I am now back to my normal pace, if not even faster.
I plan to keep these tucked away now, so that I can always refer to them as and when needed. I think I fall into bad (lazy) habits and Simon’s no nonsense approach works well to let me see where I’m going wrong. Hope to book track instruction from him one day.

Knowledge through experience and empirical studies throughout a MotoGP racers career are invaluable. 5 Star Review
Posted by Fredrik Boström on 6th Nov 2015

First of all this is not a book full of trafficexercises. It’s a book on racing and how to ride faster in a track environment, everybody’s travelling in the same direction (hopefully 😉 and should you crash there are no trees, cars et c.

That said you will of course benefit from these instructions in day to day traffic as well since your proficiency in riding your motorbike will increase but you cannot use Motovudu fullthrottletechnique in traffic unless you want to lose your license or worse. The techniques described in the book and on the DVD will definetly make you faster on the track, they require practice but are easy to understand and Simon Crafar explains them well and “dumbs them down” for people like me to understand.

Buy the book/dvd, watch and learn then practice, practice, practice!! You won’t regret it. I didn’t.
