When watching racecars on TV we always hear commentators talking about getting heat into the tyres. But why do tyres need heat, and can you have too much of a good thing?

The new recruits will join the existing Bike2Bike trainers in providing advanced tuition to Ireland's motorcycle racers and advanced track day riders, on the Co Kildare circuit's new Superbike School courses.

Former British Supersport championship contender and World Supersport star, Jack Kennedy, is the latest addition to the line-up, joining the highly experienced Declan Swanton and Ronan Shanahan.

Between them these riders have won an enormous number of races and championships and are some of the best known names in Irish Short Circuit Racing.

Kennedy is a former Irish Clubman Supersport champion who has been racing successfully in the UK for a number of years.

Last season he was cruelly denied an historic British Championship victory by a mechanical failure at the final event of the season, when all he had to do was finish.

This season, Kennedy has graduated to the world stage where he started his season by running at the front of the opening Supersport race of the season in Australia.

Swanton is also a former champion and is making a concerted effort this season to win the Adelaide Masters Supersport title. The Corkman's experience includes both Superbike and Supersport competitions.

Shanahan is another multiple race winner and the current Adelaide Masters Series 250cc class champion.

The Superbike School is designed to improve riders' cornering ability and therefore their lap times.

Concentrating on each individual aspect of a corner, from braking to throttle control at corner exit, the course will teach riders how to get the most from themselves and their machines.

The addition of top circuit racers to the teaching roster, alongside the highly respected existing coaching staff, can only benefit those riders looking to constantly improve.
