YCRS Invades Florida
MILLVILLE, N.J. (January 30, 2019) – The Yamaha Champions Riding School (YCRS) will host its first ever school in Jupiter, Fla., February 26 -27 at Palm Beach International Raceway with support from MotoCorse Performance and TrackBikeRentals.com
The premium two-day ChampSchool will be the “main event” but YCRS will also save six less-expensive ChampDay seats for the 26th only and three seats on the 27th for prior YCRS graduates only.
ChampSchool’s expansion into Arizona for winter training in 2014 turned out to be very successful and now with more bikes from Yamaha, YCRS hopes to make Florida the equal on the east coast in the winter.
“We’re not sure of the overall demand and which program will be the most popular, but if history teaches us anything, our two-day ChampSchool (no matter the price) almost always outperforms the economical class,” says Keith Culver, The YCRS Crew Chief. “Learning what the best riders in the world do and how they do it from the best instructors in the country is pretty hard to beat.”
“The Yamaha Champions Riding School offers a world class motorcycle rider curriculum focused on the customer. Palm Beach International Raceway shares this commitment to customer satisfaction and we are extremely pleased to welcome them to our facility. We look forward to working with the entire staff of YCRS and hope that this event is only the beginning of a long and successful relationship between us,” Herb Lyman, Director of Road Course Development at PBIR said.
Founder and Lead Instructor Nick Ienatsch adds, “We’ve been getting requests from industry insiders in the sunshine state like Seth Starnes of TrackBikesRentals.com and Chris Boy of MotoCorse Performance for a few years now, saying that they need a class like ours in the region. These guys know their stuff and if they believe in our program and want to see us in Florida, we’re going to listen!”
MotoCorse Performance (www.motocorseperformance.com) will be the shop of choice for customers looking to get their bikes prepped for the school and www.trackbikerentals.com will be renting motorcycles to anyone who wants to travel from afar or just feel like a pro. Both reputable shops will be on hand for technical support of students and riders.
