The VRRA in conjunction with Racing Associates Canada Events (RACE) will present a school to instruct riders in the basic skills required for organized road racing competition. Riders who successfully pass this course will be eligible for a VRRA racing membership, and are also eligible to apply for a RACE license. Riders under the age of 18 years at the time of the scheduled school must contact the VRRA to obtain an underage consent form prior to application.
The classroom session will cover the material required for a racing license. In addition we will cover VRRA race weekend procedures, registration, machine preparation and technical requirements.
There will be a sidecar school running concurrent with the riders’ school. This is a chance to obtain your credentials to drive a rig or be a passenger. Drivers must supply their own machine. Please complete the riders’ school form and write on the top “Sidecar Driver” or “Sidecar Passenger” and submit as per the instructions. Application forms will be accepted until April 15th.
If you currently have, or are eligible for, a VRRA racing membership you do not need to attend the general part of the classroom training and the fee is reduced to $90. You will have to attend the sidecar classroom training immediately after the general session and all skid pad and track sessions.
