Larry's class was only good for CCS South which like their counterparts at TTD are now defunct and out of business.

No...Ty's class does not offer any credit towards a race license.

The only way to get a CMRA license is to take the LSTD licensing school. If you disagree with this process email the Board of Directors at www.cmraracing.com and voice your opinion.

Ride Smart has tried for years to be able to provide a licensing school for the CMRA and whether it is Ride Smart or someone else I feel there should be more than one alternative to getting your race license...my .02 worth and only my opinion.

thanks for that info. that would be awesome if we could take a credited race license class with Ride Smart. I couldn't agree with u more on that.

Ride Smart had their chance and it didn't work- they had the ability to provide licensing for an entire year and didn't produce.

The CMRA opted to go with one provider from now on.

Like Dirk said, if it's an issue, contact the CMRA BOD.

Actually you can go through Larry and get your CCS license. Then you can take that license and get your CMRA license. It cost more money because you have to pay the licensing fee for both clubs instead of one, but you can also skip the prov nov stuff and corner working for a race weekend.

Not saying this is right, better or whatever...just saying that you can get your CMRA license by other means.

So..I think Larry is working with BUck.

It would be..

Bucks Day - 190.00
Larry's Class - 75.00
CCS license - 130.00
CMRA License - 135.00 ( I think)

or...

LSTD Day 150.00
Race Class 80.00
CMRA License 135.00 (i think)
Prov nov jersey for 2 race weekends
Corner work for 2 race weekends.

Correct me if I am wrong anyone.

Thats the route man, give or take a few bucks on the costs. Anything else is propaganda. All you will get are people telling you why one way is better than the other.

Option #1 (minus Bucks Days, insert TTD before going down) was what me and another friend were going to do if we decided to race (now wish would have done it before TTD went south).

I'd rather spend the extra cash and not pay the time/travel cost of corner workng 2 weekends at the CMRA races.


Good post Brandt

IMHO the club is...just that a club. You have to pay your dues to get in and play. Part of those dues is cornerworking for your fellow racers and racing two races without wrecking. To me the racing part is a wash. I actually liked wearing my yellow shirt and still have it to this day. The cornerworking is a service that the CMRA would otherwise have to pay someone to do. It is the member's support that drives the club and what makes it so good......so in short.... do your part. I did it, Ty Howard had to do it..... most every racer had to do it. What makes it any different for anyone else?

You would be missing out on good experience. Running races as a prov nov gives you time to get accustomed to a race environment and gives yourself a way to judge where you stand against the other novices out there.

Plus...you could corner work on saturday and race on sunday...your gonna race anyways right? if you have a friend or someone to corner work with you it only takes one weekend (counts as your requirement) and it gives you the best seat in the house to watch what the fast guys do in that turn or turn set.

I think everyone who circumvents the process is doing themselves and the other racers a big dis-service. My .02 worth and only my opinion.

Good points there. I thought corner working was for a whole weekend each time, but if as stated by Dirk, well then thats not all bad.

Well said, as did John.

Personally I could care less, I feel like the way I (and a ton of other folks) did it is the best way- corner working is a great way to learn.

By the way, LSTD doesn't make any additional money off licensing, that fee goes straight to the CMRA. I can't speak for the "other" method.

i agree, paying your dues is a part of being in a great club. cornerworking isn't that bad, plus you can still race. it's actually fun to cornerwork some days.
