Did you check out Michael on the track yesterday and the article to go with it?
Don’t worry if you did, here it is again: http://michael-fassbender-online.net/michael-fassbender-takes-to-the-track/
"Michael Fassbender takes to the track." More outstanding images and a great article of Michael at the @ronhaslam race school at MotorcycleNews.comcourtesy of
"X-Men star Michael Fassbender had his first ever track experience yesterday at the Honda Ron Haslam Race School. He follows hot on the heels of fellow X-Men actors James McAvoy and Nicholas Hoult, who visited the school two weeks ago.
Taking time out of his busy filming schedule, Fassbender, who also appeared in Inglorious Basterds, rode a Honda CBR600RR at Donington as part of the school’s intensive three-hour, ‘Elite’ course.
The course includes one-on-one instructing and datalogging. His instructor was MCN Senior Road Tester Michael Neeves. He also took a pillion ride with 500 GP legend Ron Haslam on the back of a Honda Fireblade.
Bike-mad Fassbender has been riding since 2006 and has owned a Triumph Speed Triple and BMW R1200GS, but this was his first time on a circuit. “I’ve done a bit of karting before, so I was comfortable finding the lines, but riding on track is so different to the road.” Fassbender explains.
“The body position you need on the track is so different to what I’m used to, but the CBR600RR is great and is more bike than my ability. It’s well-balanced and forgiving. Ron was telling me to pull the brakes as hard as I could after going flat-out down the straights, but I haven’t grown the pair to try that yet.”
Neeves says: “Riding on track is such a different discipline. Michael had a lot of raw speed to begin with, but the big thing was getting him to move away from his upright road-riding style.
“We mainly worked on moving his body around the bike in the corners and riding on his tip-toes. By the end of the course he’d got his knee down and managed to lop 17-seconds off his lap times.”

Dear Fans, Fassinators & Friends
This is regarding photos/images of Michael Fassbender and who claims ownership of them. We need your assistance. Please read the complete message and email us if you have something to share.
This is NOT about belittling, bashing or maligning others. But, we are concerned for Michael’s fan’s so we wanted to check with you all.
Have you and/or are you being harassed or bullied by Russian sisters, Olga and Elena along with their friend Alex Courtney regarding photos/images they claim are theirs? They claim ownership of them?
Throughout the years we have observed first hand the harassment and bullying that has taken place by the sisters Olga and Elena and their friend Alex Courtney and possibly others in their group.
They operate the His name Michael Fassbender - www.michaelfassbender.org/ and Fassbender Way blogs and are on Twitter and other social media pages.
We have been contacted a few times the past few weeks by a sweet fan who is being bullied and threatened so much by them, that she fears for her safety. Not to mention the emotional strain it is putting on her.
She has a Pinterest account and when she sees a photo of Michael she likes she pins it, often from another Pinterest account or from the internet, not knowing the original source.
She has explained this to them repeatedly. Instead they continue with their threats and taunting her. We have seen this with our own eyes so have no reason to doubt her.
As much as we do not want to entertain ugliness and negativity, we are concerned for the Michael Fassbender fan community and would like to get a consensus before deciding what our next course of action will or will not be.
Please provide your honest and complete encounter to us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please do not post them on here.
Please remember our policy regarding inappropriate comments. Thank you.
