can you split up the two days? Like 1 month CW on a Sunday and next month do another. Sat. endurance races would be boring to watch after awhile.

I agreed with these guys, don't miss out the corner working experience on a race day. It's exciting to watch and you can learn a lot from others going through the corners. I just did one a Hallet and enjoyed doing it, again. It kinda scared me a bit afterward thinking how fast we rolled through the corner.

i think you'll see that the majority of the people went to LSTD's CMRA license school, then went through all the prov nov requirements.

level5 along with myself and a few others got our licenses around the same time, and cornerworked the same corners together.....it was definately fun.

yes you can.....the first weekend is up to you....you can work or race. if you raced the 1st weekend, you will need to cornerwork before you can race again....or clear it up with Barry Nichols (Chief cornerworking marshall) and he can allow you to race or not.

Here's the answer to all your questions:

Alan Etheredge (the wheel that makes the business side of the CMRA roll)
(682) 225-3088
alan@cmraracing.com

Do not text Alan - call him or email him.

I got my race class in August 07. Corner work and race at Oakhill in Sept 07, then at TWS (Texas World Speedway) Oct 07. Finished my requirements but didn't turned in my race application because the season ended. I didn't race in 08 because wasn't competitive(fast) enough and financial readiness. I turned in my requirements completion at the end of Aug 08 and apply for my race license for 09. If you are going through the time table as I am, then you will likely take the same time road. Hope this answer your question.

I am in the process of completing my prov-nov requirements, as a matter of fact I will be corner working Cresson on Sat. and racing on Sunday. I think it is all part of paying your dues and quite frankly I don't mind it at all.

You have to be careful if you wait too long from the date you get your prov-nov license from LSTD to the date you do corner working or Alan / Barry will put you on the "no race" list and you have to corner work before you will be allowed to race again. They are pretty cool about it but just make sure you get it done in the same 12 month period you took your LSTD class. I am not certain but if you took the CMRA class in 2009 and then didn't complete your corner working and other prov-nov requirements in the 2009 season you would have to re-take everything for 2010. Tom / Steve is that a true statement?

I would personally take the class with LSTD, they know there stuff and have been around racing for some time. Don't try and get around the corner working, etc etc that would be a waste of time and you would lose some respect IMHO.

Or in my case so far behind that I can't see anyone in front of me But I was talking about the crashing in the CMRA class with LSTD, I had to do it twice cause I crashed out the first time... notice the huge rip in my prov-nov shirt.

You have 12 months from the date you took the CMRA Racing license class to meet the requirements.
2 days of cornerworking, one Saturday, one Sunday.
You must race in 2 or more races in 2 consecutive weekends without crashing. The class is $75.00 above and beyond our track day fee.
The CMRA license is $135.00 at the beginning of the season and is pro-rated later in the year.

As far as another license provider Ride Smart was allowed licensing for one year. It did not go well for them. I don't need to go into the details......
