Background

Hello my name is Mark Watkins; I would first like to thank you for reviewing my 2016 Race Resume. I am a passionate motorcycle road racer. I enjoy riding dirt bikes and road racing. In 2008 I bought a 08 Yamaha R1 which was the spark that ignited my passion for motorcycle road racing. That experience fueled my enthusiasm and has helped me to go from beginner to now expert. I took a Cornerspeed class and received my racing licenses in 2010. Subsequently, in 2011, I began racing with WERA on a 2005 GSXR 750. Cashing in on my gained experience and commitment to the sport for the 2012 season, I purchased a Jamie James Production 2008 Yamaha R6. This experience has allowed me to focus on improving my overall skills and further defining my track appearances into quality results.
I’m currently an active duty soldier station at Fort Bragg, North Carolina. During my 2014 campaign for various novice titles I surpassed my goal of completing a full race season for the first time relished with the opportunity to move to the expert racing class in the following year. I am now a coveted instructor at Aaron Stevenson’s racing organization. We specialize in road racing and dirt conditions through our Cornerspeed and Cornerspin training sessions. As you may already know road racing is not an easy sport to compete in, it takes a lot of guts and an unyielding commitment to be a successful racer. My dedication is only one element to the championship. It also takes the support of companies li
