Motorcycle training, racing, coaching



If you are a young or novice aspiring motorcycle road racer, Moto Academy NZ should be your first choice for coaching and training.

Our track record of educating and training young racers to the highest levels is among the best in New Zealand. Our point of difference is we focus on the youth and introductory level of instruction, rather than the older, advanced levels.

Using our proven system we have coached several riders who have been or are at the top of the sport in New Zealand, a former Red Bull Rookie and World Championship Moto3 racer and most recently, New Zealands leading young racer and first Red Bull Rookies Cup rider, Cormac Buchanan.

Under the tutelage of Moto Academy NZ, Cormac has gone from a successful Junior Speedway rider to three time NZSBK (150SS and 300SS) champion, Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup and European Talent Cup JuniorGP rider.
