49th Annual WERA GNF Is Next Weekend At Barber Motorsports Park

© 2021, Roadracing World Publishing, Inc. From a press release issued By WERA Motorcycle Roadracing, Inc.:


It is that time of year when the best racers in the country come to Barber Motorsports Park in Alabama to see if they can get a coveted #1 National plate at the 49th WERA Grand National Finals. Credential sales will begin at 3pm on Wednesday ($40.00 for Rider/Crew) and Paddock Access will begin around 5pm.

Thursday will be a practice day for riders who have never been to Barber Motorsports Park and those who want to make sure their machines can take a Championship.

Friday will have the WERA Vintage Series take to the track for the last round in their 2021 Series and after these races the 2021 National Champions will be known!  Also on Friday will be individual class qualifiers for all the Pirelli/WERA National Challenge Races to be held on Sunday.  Each Pirelli/WERA National Class will have a qualifying session to set the grids for Sunday.  If you can’t make it for Qualifying no worries you will still be on Sunday’s grids.

On Saturday, the riders from around the country who have run one of our Sportsman Series races will line up with competitors from all WERA Regions to see who takes the win in the classes to claim the WERA Sportsman National Championship in their class.  These races are exciting and bring the best together for one final shootout.

On Sunday, the Pirelli/WERA National Challenge will take to the track for their final round of the 2021 Series and Champions will be known for 2021!  The Pirelli/WERA National Series features the Michelin WERA Superbike Class and winning a Championship in this Series gives you a taste of what the next level is all about!

Camping is available. Stickboy Racing (Dunlop/Bridgestone Vendors) will have their annual Halloween Party Friday night, and join Stick for his beer swap on Thursday evening.  Make sure to make time to visit the Barber Museum while you are there.  Come on out and see if you can pick the stars for 2022.
