FAST Riding School (F.A.S.T. Riding School)

School Background and Intro:

Michel Mercier (founder) has been operating the FAST Riding School for the past 16 years. In addition to many Canadian titles in various racing divisions and categories, Michel Mercier won three Canadian National Superbike Championships. To the many motorcycle race fans who knew him, his career and riding style was characterized by a strong passion. Today Michel Mercier still conveys this passion in his motorcycle riding school’s curriculum.

The present day FAST Riding School actually began as FAST Racing School. At that time, the motorcycle riding school offered students the opportunity to participate in a student championship race series. This low cost option allowed a non-racer to experience the thrill of racing in a fun and safer environment. The winner of the Championship was offered a ride in a race series for the following year.

Over time, the Racing orientation gave way to a Performance Riding approach. FAST Riding School mainly operates out of the Shannonville Motorsport Park and offers three levels of motorcycle training:

Phase 1: Covers the basics of motorcycle performance riding as applied to the track. It is held on the Nelson circuit of the Shannonville Motorsport Park. The tighter and more technical Nelson circuit offers an ideal layout for skill building.

Phase 2: Builds on basics introduced in Phase 1 and is held on the longer and faster Fabi circuit at Shannonville Motorsport Park.

Phase 3: Also held on Fabi circuit and of particular interest to riders who want to raise the stakes or might have an interest in racing as a sport.


FAST instructors include long-term veterans as well as more recent additions. But they all share one thing in common. They have all been (and some continue to be) top competitors in various racing categories.


FAST Riding School supplies all needed equipment including helmet, track leathers, and boots.

You can choose from 3 models of motocycles for your FAST class:

Suzuki GSX-R 600 (04)

Suzuki SV650 S (04)

Yamaha YZF-R6 (05)
