This year, we 'll be in 6 countries, on 11 different circuits.
These events are open for all motorcycle brands and are supported by the BMW Motorrad factory in Munich.
In the price of 20 € are included:
- an insurance (your maximum cost in case of a crash = 2.000 €)
- tire wear
- fuel for 1 session of 20' (in your own group instead of with your own motorcycle)
After the morning briefing, you can register between 9.00 and 10.00 for one test session. Please take with you:
- ID card
- Drivers licence
- Credit card which is able to an "authorisation" of 2.000 € (to block online the caution of 2.000 €) - Inform @ your bank if your card can do this (sometimes the possible amount to "authorise" is less than 2.000 €, in which case we can not let you test a bike)
Together we will decide in which session(s) you 'll test the new BMW S 1000 RR on the circuit, during 20'.
Then you come to the EYBIS pitbox 10' before your test session(s) where a coach will be assigned to you.
After a quick acquaintance, he will explain to you the main functionalities of your test bike.
Next, he will run in front of you for 2 laps.
Then you can ride totally free with your test bike for the rest of the session.
After completing your test session, you will be "welcomed" by your coach who will be very interested in your feedback.

a. TPL Insurance = included
- With EYBIS, the Third Party Liability (TPL) insurance is included in your enrolment price since years.
- Some circuits require a license. The only reason for this is that there is a TPL insurance included in it.
- Because we provide for all participants - included in the price - such a TPL insurance, a license is not requested during our events and yet you are fully okay.
b. European Health Insurance Card
(we will not verify this, it 's only for your own comfort / safety)
VERY IMPORTANT: make sure to have your "European Health Insurance Card" (EHIC) with you. By showing this card, people know - in the domain of health (and injury) insurance - that you're completely covered in your own country and that every other country, that is a member of the European Union, has to give you all the needed care.If you haven't obtained your card from your health care insurance, than :
- apply for a card immediately;
- if you cannot receive it in time, ask them to e-mail to you a "Provisional replacement certificate for the European Health Insurance Card" (= 1 page, and this can be done immediately);
A list of "Dangerous sports" that are excluded from "urgent medical care abroad". Usually, "racing with car / motorcycle / outboard engines" is listed. But as we do not "race", our activity is not excluded from any treatment. Check if this is also the case with your insurance, and if it is not, just be sure to get an insurance yourself.
EYBIS has not only a very good insurance as an organiser, but insures also - on every event - all participants with a good TPL (= third partie liability) insurance.
If you have a racing license from your national motorcycle council, be sure to bring it with you.
If you have questions, do not hesitate to give us a call on + 32 476 691 091.
