RPM Racing Signs Pete Martins As Rider School Instructor

Copyright 2002, Roadracing World Publishing, Inc.<BR><BR>Veteran racer Pete Martins has been contracted by RPM Racing, Inc., the WERA South Central Region affiliate, to be the Director of RPM Track Days and Rider Schools.<BR><BR>According to RPM Racing owner Alan Blair, Martins will develop school curriculum for intermediate and advanced rider courses. Blair added that MArtins is also working toward getting a Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) certification to work with beginning motorcyclists. <BR><BR>"We are working on getting the certification for Pete (Martins) so that he can actually start at the ground-level with riders that are brand new to riding and racing because we see the need for that, too. A lot of guys go out and buy their first bike, and, without any training, go out there and have an accident and hurt themselves and never ride another motorcycle again. We think it's good if you can train and help out everyone from the ground up because if you can teach them some things about safety, hopefully they'll be a motorcycle rider for longer, maybe even like you and I, loving the stuff for the rest of our lives because we've been brought up the right way with motorcycles."<BR><BR>RPM is one of few motorcycle road racing clubs that offer mentoring programs for new racers.<BR><BR> For additional information about RPM, go to www.rpmracing.org.
