Racing Excellence: KTM’s 2024 ‘Academy of Speed’ Unleashed for Riders

Academy of Speed
  • KTM introduces the 2024 ‘Academy of Speed’: a track initiative inviting riders of all levels to experience premium coaching and adrenaline rushes across three world-class circuits.
  • With MotoGP stars’ guidance and tailored sessions for rookies to seasoned pros, the Academy aims to create a community-driven, unforgettable track experience for motorcycle enthusiasts and KTM fans.

Only a small minority get to feel the full power of a sportbike’s potential around highly modern motorsport circuits. But there is nothing to stop the rest of us from dreaming, right? Well, KTM now wants to pull riders firmly into reality, and the KTM Academy of Speed is a brand-new initiative launching in 2024 that will bring orange passion, service, and pulse-quickening emotions to the customer track experience.

Across three events at three world class circuits in June, July, and September 2024 the KTM Academy of Speed will invite riders old and new to the brand (and to the racetrack) to sample high-pace, high quality guidance and high adrenaline with a premium edge.

72 places per day, each day, at the Salzburgring and Red Bull Ring (both in Austria) and the Automotodróm Slovakia Ring will be separated between three groups: Rookie, ambitious Amateur and Pro. There will be instructors and KTM ambassadors catering to every level. Furthermore help and coaching from the likes of MotoGP™ stars and former GP racer and MotoGP Team Manager Mike Leitner will happen both on and off the track.  ‘Pro’ riders (those with extensive trackday mileage and seeking to trim lap-times further) can bask in the full two-day schedule with enhanced technical support, and a pitbox setup with a seating and gear area. An evening dinner and entertainment program for all will foster a community spirit: the KTM Academy of Speed wants to provide first-rate tuition and create unforgettable moments both when the visor is clicked shut and when the leathers are packed away, and the stories are flowing.

The KTM Academy of Speed is the brainchild of ex-Grand Prix riders and a result of KTM’s own passion for the asphalt. In 2023 Red Bull KTM Factory Racing seized two MotoGP Sprint wins and appeared on the podium nine times, finishing 4th in the championship with Brad Binder and 2nd in the constructors standings. KTM knows how to build a bike. The Grand Prix-winning competitiveness of the KTM RC16 and the KTM RC4 in Moto3™ has accumulated numerous victories, rostrums and championships in the last 11 years.

The 2024 KTM Academy of Speed will fill up rapidly. The confirmed days are:

  • Salzburgring, Austria: 20-21 June 2024
  • Red Bull Ring, Austria: 17-18 July 2024
  • Slovakia Ring, Slovakia: 4-5 September 2024

The scheme is exclusive for what it offers but welcoming for riders of all skills. The KTM Academy of Speed has been created to appeal to motorcycle racing enthusiasts, KTM owners and fans of the brand, and then riders curious about their ability and who want to explore the next steps or limits.
