First of all... why in the world would you just not call your buddies?

A TMGP License will allow you to run Mini Endurance in the CMRA. It will not excuse you from your ProvNov duties if you want to race big bikes.

I wouldn't think it would be legal. But even if it is, do your dirt. Heck get as many friends as you can to work. The past few races Barry has had to have anouncements made on the intercom looking for corner workers. We also need quality corner workers. One race last round I remember a guy holding the yellow out for 4 laps. Nothing going on in that corner and no other corners had it up. He was just chillin. Holding it up.

Corner working is an important part of the game and take it seriously. Tell the people you are working with to take it seriously also. Sorry about the rant.

Have fun.

+1
however, it CAN excuse you from doing big bike sprints IF you do two race weekends of CMRA mini-endurance instead. rule say " two weekends without crashing". it doesnt care if u r on mini or big bike.
i know this, bcos this is how I got my CMRA license last year! its helpful for poor soul like me who wanted to get a license but did not have a big bike to race.

p.s. i still did my CWing and race school thingi. it didnt excuse me from that.

I was referring to Mr. Swift. He seems to like posting questions about things that could be answered alot quicker with a simple phone call.

This information is incorrect. The rules have been changed for 2007.

This is a direct copy from the CMRA 2007 Rule Book... (yes I have read it)

Provisional Novice riders must complete at least two regular Novice sprint races on two separate race weekends without crashing at any time during that weekend and complete two days of work as a corner worker before qualifying for a Novice status license.

Ok guys and gals,
I spoke with Nancy and this is what I have been informed of.... The CMRA will recognize a TMGP license with a few caveats. Basicly you would need to prove that you have been riding with TMGP and did not just get your license and finish one race, etc... If you can show her you have been with them for a season then they honor your license and let you run big bikes etc... All this can be discussed with her when you apply for your license.

I had e-mailed her about something similar to this as well. In years past CMRA did recognize other racing schools besides the LSTD school. Now they only accept the LSTD school. I did Ed Bargy which is accepted by every other racing org in the country except CMRA. I called her and she says that I just have to take the written test and mail it in with my application and money. I looked it over and 95% of the info was the same as the written I took at the Bargy school.

The test is open book anyways. I doubt you will have any problems.

They get you the CMRA licensing school cert, but other schools, like Code, Pridmore, Schwantz, etc can be seen as an equivilency and will get you the ability to take the test.
Its not explained like that in the rule book. It just states that in order to get your CMRA prov nov license, A rider must pass the CMRA rider school, and present the certificate along with your money when you apply for the license. It makes no specific mention of recognizing any other schools.

Email or call Nancy, but I'm sure you can use the Code School cert to qualify.
i got it all squared away, i emailed her after I took the bargy school but i don't have the desire to race anytime soon.
