Supermoto Trackdays

RUMESM ‘Supermoto Trackdays’ are free-riding track sessions organised by Fred Fiorentino’s FiorStarSchool on the Circuit Jules Tacheny in Mettet.

These sessions are held once a month from November to March, weather permitting, with riders split into three groups of a maximum of 35 each, according to ability. Quad-riders will be in maximum group sizes of 25.
The sessions allow participants to ride independently at their own pace under supervision by FioStarSchool staff and track managers. A timing service is available to ensure participants’ abilities are correctly measured.
On-site medical assistance is provided by one doctor, one nurse and one ambulance, and the health centre is on the ground floor of the control tower.
Sessions carry a fixed price of €80 for the day for motorbikes and €60 for quads (€20 additional fee in both cases if booking and paying on the day or the previous day). Confirmation or cancellation of each date according to weather conditions will be published in priority position on this page and also on the our Facebook page.

Safety instructions

In order to ensure the safety of all participants on the circuit premises and the track itself, please read and adhere to the following instructions:
Before entering the track, all participants must present their personal accident insurance policy document to the organisers.

On the circuit

  • All participants must adhere scrupulously to safety instructions given by the organisers during briefings, and must wear the correct safety equipment: helmet complying with international standards, leathers, back protector, and boots and gloves designed for Supermoto practice.
  • Motorcycles used must comply with all required standards of operation and safe condition, especially those concerning brakes and tyres. The organisers reserve the right to refuse entry to any motorcycle which falls short of minimum safety requirements.
  • Entrance to the track is via the platform on the stands, and all riders entering must ensure they do not obstruct or endanger others already on the circuit.
  • To leave the track, exit via the platform on the stands. Riders leaving the circuit must indicate their intention to do so by raising their left hand and keeping strictly to the right of the track after their final chicane.
  • Riding in the wrong direction on the track is strictly forbidden. All riders must proceed in an anti-clockwise direction only.
  • Riders should never stop on the track except in case of emergency. Should this be completely unavoidable, riders must make every effort to remove their motorcycles from the circuit (preferably to the inside of a chicane) and adhere to instructions given by the track manager. In the event of an unforeseeable incident, riders should remove themselves and their motorcycles from the track as quickly as possible.
  • At the start of each session, riders should take care to warm up their tyres correctly. ‘Zig-zagging’ is forbidden. Tyres should be warmed up gradually whilst respecting the track direction and slowly increasing speed where it is safe to do so.
  • Refuelling is only permitted in the paddocks. It is strictly forbidden to fill up on the platform.
  • Participants must ride as slowly as possible, keeping to a maximum speed of 30 kilometres per hour, on the platform and in the paddock.

Insurance

  • Participants are covered by the Mettet circuit’s third-party public liability insurance, but are not covered for personal injury. Additional accident insurance may be contracted on site for the sum of €17 (proposal forms and payment to be handed in to the secretary during morning enrolment).
  • All Mettet circuit users are personally liable for damages caused to any part of the complex.
  • Sessions organised by the RUMESM are for training purposes only – they are not races. Any aggressive behaviour by riders is completely forbidden.
  • The RUMESM requires participants to be considerate to each other when overtaking. The slower rider must avoid any sudden changes in direction and the faster rider is responsible for ensuring the manœuvre is completely safe, taking all necessary measures to prevent accident, damage or injury.
  • The RUMESM reserves the right to remove any rider who does not show due sportsmanship and consideration during sessions. Non-bikers accompanying riders are not authorised to enter the track. Any rider who allows a third party to substitute him or her on the track without informing the organisers in advance will be automatically excluded from the session. Crossing the circuit to access the centre green is forbidden. Children must be closely supervised and walking dogs near the track is not recommended.
  • YELLOW flag: If the yellow flag is flown ahead of the site of an accident or where track managers are at work, riders must not pass.
  • YELLOW flag with RED stripe: Change in track surface conditions.
  • GREEN flag: Track open and start of training; passing yellow flag permitted.
  • RED flag: Track closed. Stop immediately and return to stand at slow speed.
  • CHEQUERED flag: End of session, return to.

In the event of non-compliance with these instructions, the organisers shall not be liable for any resulting accident, damage or injury and reserve the right to order the rider in question to stop and leave the track.

Weather conditions

In the event of adverse weather conditions impeding ‘Trackdays’ taking place, the RUMESM reserves the right to cancel scheduled dates.

As far as possible, an alternative date will be offered and booking fees will be carried over to the new date.

Where RUMESM is forced to cancel a scheduled session altogether or the new date offered is not convenient for the participant, he or she will be reimbursed in full.

Confirmation or cancellation of each date according to weather conditions will be published in priority position on this page as soon as possible.
