The Oregon and Washington Motorcycle Road Racing Associations (OMRRA and WMRRA) jointly announce the 2020 Pacific Northwest motorcycle road racing schedule at three tracks; The Ridge and Pacific Raceways in Washington and Portland International Raceway (PIR) in Oregon.
The two clubs are joining forces at four rounds in 2020, two at The Ridge and two at PIR.
“When OMRRA and WMRRA race together the grids are larger and the racing is super competitive,” said Barry Wressel, WMRRA President. “With Seattle and Portland less than 200 miles apart, it makes sense to overlap our schedules, getting the most out of all the planning and volunteer effort that goes into each event.”
The two clubs will score their championships separately in 2020 and will crown their respective overall and race class champions.
“The past several years, we have had one race round together. Those were our biggest and most exciting events. I’m looking forward to doing that more often, and to ensuring the financial stability of clubs in the process,” added Chris Page, OMRRA President.
The Friday before each event, both clubs collaborate with local track day providers to ensure a full day of practice before races Saturday and Sunday. September 4-7 will be a special long weekend, inclusive of a Monday endurance race at Pacific Raceways.
OMRRA was founded in 1972, and WMRRA the year after. The clubs have had a long good neighbor relationship, and champions at one have often raced at the other with success including this year’s OMRRA #1 Jeremy Coffey and WMRRA’s #1 Adam Robarts.
