Endurance Racing in 2009

Any Peeps from MotoHouston planning on Endurance Racing in 2009? If you need a ride (for the whole year) and have the committment, funds, license (CMRA) to back it up with please post up or pm me.

I'm looking for 1-2 riders for 2009.

Endurance Racing is a great way to gain experience while going easy on the $$$. A Sprint lap can cost you over $5-7 depending on bike, flags and laps of race. An Endurance lap can run you as little as $0.30!

The way we ran "our" team in 2008 was we all (4 team members) decided ahead of time which races we'd attend - we agreed on the ones close to home (Houston area), they were TWS (Texas World Speedway)/ MSRH/ Cresson.

The team decided to go a different route now, so I'm testing waters to see if there are other racers who may be interested.

Every person on the team will own an equal share of the bike and team's assests.

It does NOT matter. It will be primarily a "for fun and experience" team.

There won't be any stress to compete for lap times and or make all races, if the team decides to miss hallett coz its too far, then so be it. What ever the majority of the team wants, that's the way to do it.

so Novice or Experts - all are welcome.

I'm just sick and tired of high costs with everything that's the reason why I switched to endurance earlier this year, and so far its been great. (as cheap as a track day!)

I'm seriously interested in racing next year. The only problem is $$.....I could swing it, bit it would be tight. If endurance racing is something you get a little more bang for the buck, then I would seriously consider it given the specifics.

The only problem is if you're not considering anyone who has zero racing experince and only about 32 hours of track time, then I'm not your guy. But either way, I'm getting my racing liscense and plan on doing some sort of racing next year.

If you would consider someone like that however, then given the specifics and what exactly will be asked of each team member......then I would probably do it. I've been told by many that endurance racing is an excellent way to seriously get into the sport.

I guess it really comes down to the previous post........how much experience are you looking for? I'm going to assume that what I have isn't enough, but I just wanted to throw my name in the hat, just incase.

If your "serious" please PM me.

As mentioned previously I'm looking for people who are in it for the "fun and experience" more then anything. If you think your slow - this would be your chance to become smooth, and thus get faster.

If your low on $$ and don't want to spend $$$$$ on sprints then this would be your chance to spend $$ and get more bang for your buck.

Sprint racing is great - trust me I enjoy doing my sprints on minis! But big bike sprints is too expensive for me.

Like I said - if your serious, send me a PM and I'll give you the "A to Z" of how the teams going to be run, what the team would expect from you, what you'd need to get into the team.

Endurance racing is very very fun. It is one of the cheaper ways to race. I enjoy it very much. Anyone considering it should go for it.

Hey If need be - I can explain things on a legal paper for her, so she'll easily understand it.



Besides I think I'm in her good books - as long as you have'nt hurt yourself on the Lem.

I read this post after seeing the other. I'm in. My primary reason for not racing CMRA has always been the travel. If it's just Houston / Dallas area I am in.

What bike? I have a decent 2004 GSXR 750 I could donate. Just needs safety wire and a fairing swap.

It's nicely setup with:

* Traxion Dynamics AK20's
* Penske Triple rear shock
* GPR Steering stabilizer
* Leo Vince Full-Ti Exhaust system
* Vortex Clip ons
* Vortex Rear Sets
* Power Commander
* Vesrah pads and Steel braided lines

We're running BT003s on it for now - which seem to working well.

I'll send you a PM with the details which will explain alot of questions.
