    2022 Season Kick-Off Endurance Race

    Thanks Brian. If the goal is to entice Lightweight bikes to compete against unlimited displacement superbikes, I would suggest leaving the time penalty at 15 minutes. Has a Lightweight team ever won this event, or even competed in the event? Let's try to get as many bikes out as possible. I'm...

    2022 Season Kick-Off Endurance Race

    Hi Brian. I'm sorry to bother you. I'm preparing for the endurance race, but I don't fully understand the time penalty. I will be racing a Lightweight bike. What do these statements below mean, specifically the phrase in bold below? · 15 Minute time penalty to leverage tire change delays, which...

    2022 Season Kick-Off Endurance Race

    Looks perfect. Can't wait. I'll do my best to get as many LW bikes out as possible.

    Mentorship

    Just a suggestion - Perhaps it makes sense for the EMRA to compile and post a list of Experts or advanced Intermediates who would be willing to be a mentor to a Novice or recently graduated Intermediate. This might be more effective than suggesting that Novices go around the pits and ask for...

    Public Statement

    Thanks Brian. Great and clear info as always from you. Appreciate that! Agreed that EMRA Directors who have a financial interest in a track day company should abstain from voting on EMRA track day decisions. That is pretty clean cut. Difficult to say how much input those directors should have...

    Public Statement

    This comment insinuates that EMRA Directors at Large compensation is conditional and different to each other. So for example, one Director at Large is only compensated with free race fees and free track days IF the EMRA runs tack days and that Director runs them. Or another Director at Large is...

    Public Statement

    In advance of the upcoming AGM, can EMRA members be informed about which of the current EMRA Board Members have a financial interest in any private track day companies? A financial interest would be items such as legal or beneficial ownership, director, officer, employee or receiving any other...

    2021 Rule Change discussion

    Thanks Dave. I hope you are right and we get some new LW bikes out next season. We had solid grid numbers in this class last year and some fast lap times. I would love to see some GP chassis out there. A 450cc dirt bike motor in a GP chassis is a weapon. A lot of the MotoGP guys train with these...

    2021 Rule Change discussion

    All good suggestions Jon. A cross over class between EMRA and AMRA is Lightweight Superbike. 125 - 150cc GP style bikes more or less make similar horsepower to production style 300cc four strokes (Yamaha R3, KTM RC 390 etc). The GP bikes will go around the track faster, but more or less, they...
