Fastrack Riders Academy & Apex Club Announces Fastrack Racing University (FRU)

FONTANA, CA – Fastrack Riders Academy & Apex Club will be offering a new program by the name of Fastrack Racing University (FRU) starting in 2017. Led by former Professional road racing Champion Eric Bostrom, in collaboration with Pro racers Jake Zemke, Chris Ulrich, Jeremy Toye and Chris Fillmore, it will be intended for riders seeking intermediate, advance and expert level racer proficiency in motorcycle race track riding skills.

Fastrack Riders owner Imad Samhat comments: “The program is intended for those of us wanting racer status without the commitment to actual racing. Many riders can’t commit to a racer lifestyle due to their job, family or any other commitments/obligations but always dreamed of having that rank on their arm. Additionally, this program will also satisfy those that do want to start or excel in their racing careers at all levels, including the top. For those seeking a Certification endorsed by the coaches, they must pass the rigorous program testing process”

Eric Bostrom added, "The Fastrack Racing University will be a great opportunity for any rider looking to safely increase their speed through knowledge and technique. Rather than being based on lap times alone, rider advancement will come from a wide range of parameters that will carry over to other race tracks or racing events."

For the time being, the 2017 Racing University will be limited to 16 riders on a single day during each of the 2017 ACS scheduled weekends. Full program details to be released soon via Fastrack newsletter and social media.
