This looks like a really neat idea. Using lightweight bikes with managable power on small tracks, and no worries about crashing, seems like an ideal situation to really learn. At the Skip Barber school, they started us in a small Dodge pickup with bald tires on a wet skidpan. By the time we got to drive the Vipers, we were ready to handle sliding and recovering on the main Sebring track.

It's also good to see Bell back in racing. Remember when "a Bell helmet" used to be synonymous with a full-face? I got one from a friend's dad, and riding with that was the tits!

Yeah, anything that helps our young racers get up to speed relatively safely is a good thing in my book!
