Novice Program Update

Novice Program

OMRRA typically operates New Racer School immediately before a race round at the start and middle of each season, with a classroom session on Thursday evening and full day on-track on Friday. This two-stage approach gives new racers an opportunity to first focus on and learn the basics, such as flags and safe passing, in a calm classroom environment. Then, the focus can shift to demonstrating good judgement and riding ability in an on-track environment.

Given the uncertainty created by COVID-19, OMRRA has changed this approach to allow additional opportunities for new racers to become licensed members of OMRRA. To provide these additional opportunities, OMRRA will collaborate with local track day providers who already offer New Racer School programs. Why not spend some of the free time you have right now earning your novice race license?

There are currently 3 available options for completing the on-track portion of NRS. Successful completion of one of these will fulfill OMRRA’s requirement for the on-track portion of NRS.

  1. MotoVixens New Racer School on May 19, 2020 at the Ridge.

  2. 2Fast New Racer School on May 28, 2020 at the Ridge.

  3. 2Fast New Racer School on July 10, 2020 at Pacific Raceway

OMRRA will hold an additional classroom session at a later date (TBD) using an online meeting platform. Completing the on-track session and the classroom session will fulfill the requirements for an OMRRA novice race license.

Here’s how to get signed up to become a licensed OMRRA novice racer:

  1. Submit forms to OMRRA

    1. New Racer Registration (sections 1-5 only – do not pay $99 fee)

    2. Medical Form

  2. Sign up for a New Racer School from the list above

    1. Pay fees directly to track day provider

    2. In the notes at checkout – write “OMRRA NRS”

You’ll notice that OPRT, OMRRA’s track day partner for race weekends, is not listed above. OPRT remains in strong partnership with OMRRA, but does not have an existing New Racer School program, whereas 2Fast and MotoVixens do. There are also no New Racer Schools listed at PIR. The schedule for PIR is still in development, and there is an expectation that the events listed below will be able to occur prior to an event taking place at PIR (PIR is closed until early June). The Ridge is opening up, so OMRRA is taking full advantage of that by offering this opportunity to new racers.

Existing OMRRA racers: remember, you can get free races if you refer a new racer. If they list you on their new racer school registration form, you get one free race for each weekend they race, within the same calendar year they do NRS (up to 3 free races).
