For the practical sessions there will be three areas: an asphalted track of 8.500 m2, a section with different frictions dedicated to the exclusive practice of different breaking exercises, in dry as well as in wet and an off-road area of 800 m2, that will have a minicross and trial track. The Management of the HIS will be in the hands of the experimented instructors of the HEC, an entity with more than 17 years of experience where more than 144.000 participants have already passed.
