MRA welcomes 20 new racers out of the 32 New Racer School graduates

Byers, CO – Colorado’s Motorcycle Roadracing Association (MRA) held the Pre-Season Race School of its 50th anniversary season on April 7-8, with collaboration from class sponsor Fay Myers Motorcycle World and High Plains Raceway. On Friday evening, MRA New Rider Director Dan Spurlock led the students through a classroom session hosted by Fay Myers Motorcycle World in Greenwood Village. The classroom session included topics like physical & mental preparation, race equipment, racing techniques, race day procedures, and most importantly, track safety.

The MRA is very grateful to Fay Myers Motorcycle World for providing facilities for the classroom portion of the race school, which ran well into the evening. Fay Myers is the class sponsor of the MRA’s premier class, Race of the Rockies GTO.

Saturday morning at High Plains Raceway, Spurlock paired students up with their instructors and prepared them for a full day of coaching. The instructors were comprised of experienced MRA racers who volunteered their time to help grow the sport. Students ranged from street riders to Novice racers, and their instructors tailored the coaching to each student, covering everything from basic race lines and apexes to trail-braking and body position. Once instructor-led coaching was done, students practiced launch drills, then participated in a series of student-only races on HPR’s full course. The day culminated with a certificate ceremony, and a lot of satisfied graduates.

In the end, 32 students received their MRA New Racer School certificate, and 20 of the students already committed to getting their MRA Novice license. The MRA is looking forward to seeing them on the Novice and Amateur class grids in the coming months!

The MRA is excited to be celebrating its 50th anniversary season this year, and is looking forward to round 1, May 6-7, on the full course at High Plains Raceway.

The Motorcycle Roadracing Association is dedicated to promoting safe and competitive motorcycle road racing events for enthusiasts in Colorado and the surrounding area. For more information go to http://www.mra-racing.org/.
