Superbike star Jenny gives IAM free riding taster campaign the thumbs up

02 September 2015

The Institute of Advanced Motorists’ (IAM) campaign to encourage bikers to take advantage of free one hour advanced riding assessments have won the backing of none other than Honda British Superbike star Jenny Tinmouth.

The offer entitles any UK riding licence holder to a free one hour advanced riding taster session with an IAM expert, who will give an informal insight into advanced riding techniques as well as pointers on the rider’s strengths and weaknesses.

The free tasters (normally worth £45) must be booked by the end of September, and can be easily done by visiting the IAM’s special web page:

Jenny has broken many boundaries for women in reaching the British Superbike Championship with Honda Racing.

She is the current female Isle of Man TT lap record holder, and was the first female to enter and qualify to race in the British 125GP championship, the British Supersport and Supersport Cup Championships and the British Championship. Many of her achievements have won her Guinness world records.

Jenny said of the IAM’s free assessment campaign: “Improving your riding skills will not only make you a safer rider, but also help you enjoy the experience of riding much more. The IAM is offering this opportunity for free if you book by the end of September; it’s a great opportunity and you can only gain by taking it up.”

In addition the IAM has also created a special Facebook web page, where riders can talk about their favourite #BikeMoments and share riding tips. Each week the IAM will be giving away unique prizes including autographed Honda Racing memorabilia and tickets to Motorcycle Live at the NEC in Birmingham which runs from 28 November to 6 December. The page can be found at

Last week 1992 Formula 1 World Champion and IAM President Nigel Mansell CBE gave an endorsement to the IAM’s equivalent free assessment programme for car drivers, saying: “Everyone can benefit from advice on how to drive better. The IAM is offering an amazing free opportunity to give every driver out there a chance to be a safer, more efficient motorist.

“Each and every one of us has a responsibility to look out for each other on the roads.”
