Experienced organization (since 2005)

In 2020, for the 9th consecutive year, EYBIS has the support of the factory BMW Motorrad in Munich.

This means we can enable you to test the new BMW S 1000 RR on the track!
The cost of a test ride is 20 €.
This includes:

  • insurance (max. costs in the event of a crash = 2.000 €)
  • tyre usage
  • gasoline for one session of a 20' ride (in your own group instead of your own motorcycle)

After the morning briefing you can - between 9.00 and 10.00 - register for a test session.

What to bring along:

  • ID card
  • Driver's license
  • Credit card (2.000 € guarantee)

Together we will determine in which session you will test the new BMW S 1000 RR on the track.
Then we attend you at the EYBIS pit box 15’ before your test session, where you will be assigned a coach.
After a brief introduction, he will explain the main features of your test motorcycle.
He will then ride in front of you 1 to 2 laps.
Then you will be given the opportunity to freely ride your test motorcycle for the remaining time of the test session.
After finishing your test ride you will be "received" by your coach who will be interested in your feedback.

Usually this is impossible

Normally, you can test a BMW during a session of 20' on the circuit.
Renting a BMW for a day or a complete event is usually impossible.

In next cases however, it's possible

For people who can prove that geographically they come from too far to be able to bring their own motorcycle to our event, we can make an exception.

Concretely this usually means: living outside Europe.

That way, we already could welcome at our events clients coming from:

  • Australia
  • California (USA)
  • Canada
  • Lebanon
  • Russia
  • South-Africa
  • South-America

The number of motorcycles is limited.

Conditions

Included in the price of 600 € / day are:

  • transport of the bike to and from the event
  • tyre warmers
  • set tyres
  • fuel consumption
  • mechanic that permanently keeps the bike in good condition:
    • check before the start of the day on the circuit
      • oil level

      • fuel tank
    • check before the start of your first session
      • tyre temperature
  • refueling whenever necessary
  • insurance, with a franchise of 2.000 €

To pay in cash on the spot: 600 € / day + 2.000 € caution
At the end of the event, we refund your caution of 2.000 €, unless your rental bike would be damaged

Download waiver of liability

We will not verify this, it 's only for your own comfort / safety, especially in foreign countries.

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.

  • 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;
