The 2014 MRA season comes to a close on September 13th and 14th at Pikes Peak International Raceway. Many championships are still up for grabs which will make for an exciting weekend of racing. Join us for Round 7 as the fastest riders and bikes in Colorado take on the famous PPIR banking!

There will be four additional sections of air fence deployed at this weekend's round to compliment the MRA's existing fleet, courtesy of the Roadracing World Action Fund. Jim Wilson, MRA President says: "The MRA makes safety of our racers its foremost priority and the additional four sections of air fence provided by Roadracing World Action Fund will be used to provide increased coverage on the walls in Turns 1 and 2. We are extremely grateful to John Ulrich and Eric Kelcher for making this possible!"

The Super Street class will once again run on Saturday. If you’re a street or track day rider and would like to experience road racing for only $100 and minimal bike prep, go to http://mra-racing.org/super-street-details/ for more information.
