November 3-4 WERA West Round In Las Vegas Will Include Ed Sorbo International Invitational

WERA To Debut "Ed Sorbo International Invitational" at WERA West Las Vegas Round

Finally, knowing Ed Sorbo has a payoff.

WERA has agreed to test a new idea for a club racing class. Known as the "Ed Sorbo International Invitational" class, it is exclusively for racers who Sorbo invites to race.

"I think most of us race because we like the battle more than we are worried about winning," Sorbo says. "Therefore I want to build a class structure based on the riders more than the bikes."

If five people sign up and pay the normal class fee at the Nov. 3-4 round at Vegas, WERA will place the "Ed Sorbo International Invitational" race on the grid as a separate wave of an existing race.

"You must be an Expert. You must be invited by me," Sorbo says. "As I have not ridden the Vegas club track yet I will invite you based on who you are. If I don't know you, find someone I know who will vouch for you or find me in the pits at Vegas. I'm looking for smart riders who are about the same speed as me when I ride my '88 CBR600F1. Your bike is not a factor."

Apply by sending Sorbo an e mail at Sorbo will send a list of invited riders to WERA.

Racers invited to participate will practice in their normal practice group based on the bike. WERA will need a chance to work out the details so Sorbo expects participants to "be nice" to WERA.
