Dunlop will once again be the tire supplier to the Yamaha Champions Riding School (YCRS), entering into the fifth year of support for this school.
The YCRS fleet of 2014 Yamahas will lap on Dunlop's amazing Q3, the company's track-day oriented street tire. "We've had racers like Dane Westby and Bradley Smith lap on the Q3 and they couldn't believe the grip and feedback," YCRS's Ken Hill says. "These tires are terrific and we are very pleased that Dunlop has increased its support of what we do."
Dunlop adds, "Dunlop is pleased to continue its relationship with YCRS at their new home at NJMP. YCRS and guest instructors and bring a wealth of knowledge, many years of experience and championships to each of their students. The move to NJMP will greatly increase their ability to reach thousands of riders from all around the northeast and mid-Atlantic regions. YCRS bikes will all be fitted with our latest Q3 high performance street and track day tires, ready for students to put to the test at one of the more exciting and popular circuits in the eastern US."
Yamaha Champions Riding School is a motorcycle training program based at New Jersey Motorsports Park in Millville, New Jersey. YCRS is the evolution of the Freddie Spencer High Performance Riding School and is led by Nick Ienatsch, former racer/author and journalist Ken Hill, with full time guest instructors Larry Pegram and Scott Russell. YCRS is dedicated to making all motorcycle riders safer and more in control of their riding, no matter what type of riding they do. YCRS has 14 schools scheduled at NJMP in 2014 and hopes to take the school on the road in the winter months to warmer tracks across the US. Visit www.ridelikeachampion.com
