CMRA License School

Well I thought I'd post this up - since there's been some chatter about joining the CMRA...

There are only three remaining opportunites this year for you take the CMRA License School.

For those of you who don't know, the CMRA officially partnered with LSTD in 2006 - which made LSTD the exclusive CMRA Licensing School provider.

So listen up - if you're intertested in taking the class these are the remaining dates/locations for 2006:

Friday, August 18th @ Motorsport Ranch - Cresson, Texas
Friday, September 8th @ Oak Hill Raceway - Henderson, Texas
Friday, October 6th @ Texas World Speedway - College Station, Texas

Do not wait until the last minute to sign up people - I guarantee you that the Oct 6th class is going to be FULL - so sign up for it early, otherwise you're going to have to wait until 2007 to apply for your provisional novice license.

Doesn't LSTD offer the CMRA race school at all its track days, not just the ones on Friday before CMRA races?

EVERY LSTD event gives you the opportunity to obtain your CMRA Racing license.
The benefit of doing the license class on a Friday is that ALL license school participants ride in the same group. It's easier logistically. The sessions have 20 min. track, then school, then break.
On a Monday the CMRA license class portion is started during lunch and you normally miss one riding session.
In either option the materials are well covered you just normally miss one track session on a Monday. Thats the skinny............

What are the requirements for one to obtain their CMRA license.
I saw on Monday that there is a test duing lunch that has to be passed.
Then a Mach Race you have to finish rite side up.

What else is required?

Do I have to be riding in the A group in order to apply for my CMRA?

I need details. I'm interested in doing endurance and sprints on big bikes but, I'm still not 100% informed on alll of the details.

So, I can pay for the CMRA school at the next LSTD, take the test, the mach race and be good to go.
Will I be able to run the Honda once I get this license?
Or are there stipulations to the license?

Results from the sprint races at TWS (Texas World Speedway) last season. You can click on the riders name and view their times. Kinda lets you know what you would be up against as far as lap times.

you will have to corner work 2 weekends and finish with out crashing for 2 weekends to get the full license. Until then you are a yellow shirt prov nov. That lets everybody know you are dangerous... and not in a good way.

Come race some minis first.
