Novice Program Update
In addition to the on-track portion of NRS, novice racers must complete a classroom session. Classroom sessions have typically been held in-person, but this year it will be held virtually. The classroom session can be attended by anyone who are curious about racing for no cost (tell your friends!). Please register for the online classroom session at the link below:
We previously announced three options for completing the on-track portion of NRS, and have now added a fourth. The OMRRA July NRS has been on the schedule, but we are still waiting for PIR to open and allow track days before we can provide certainty that this event will run.
MotoVixens New Racer School on May 19, 2020 at the Ridge. – COMPLETED

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

Pay fees directly to track day provider (if you plan to do on-track NRS with 2Fast)

Attend the virtual NRS classroom session on June 14, 10am-2pm.
Here are some answers to questions that you may have. Additional questions relating to the novice program can be sent to [email protected].
Q: If the July race round is cancelled will there be another on-track session for NRS?
A: Likely. OMRRA’s goal is to provide novice racers an opportunity to become licenced prior to our first race. Given the current uncertainty with the opening of PIR, we will be nimble and adapt.
Q: If I am unable to attend the classroom session on June 14, will there be additional dates?
A: This is the only classroom session scheduled at this time. Please make every effort to attend. Due to the short notice, another classroom session may be added closer to the first race round.
Q: How do I attend the classroom session? Can I call in from a phone?
A: The classroom will be held using Zoom, and the visual content will be presented using slides and videos. You need to access the meeting on a device that allows you to see the content (preferably a computer or tablet for the larger screen size, but a smartphone may also work for you ). Simply calling in via phone and listening is not adequate.
Q: Can I attend the classroom session while driving or mowing my lawn?
A: No, your full attention and interaction is required to earn credit for attending the classroom session. Please treat this time as if you were attending in person.
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).
