Andrew Nickel Memorial Weekend

The MRA Executive is dedicating the August weekend round to honor our friend and fellow racer, Andrew Nickel.

To commemorate Andrews recent passing and to celebrate his many years as an active club member and one of the clubs top competitors, we will be scheduling some special events and activities for the MRA Round 4 weekend, Saturday, Aug. 12th and Sunday, Aug. 13th.

One of the main events planned for the Round 4 weekend will be the Andrew Nickel Memorial Endurance Race.

This special race event will be a 90 minute endurance and take place on Saturday, Aug. 12th. Entry fees will be $50.00 per rider and teams can consist of two or three riders.

The MRA Executive has created a handicap scoring system that creates a level field for all race teams and competitor regardless of bike displacement.
Teams that do not enter a Thunder class bike will have laps deducted from their final overall total to compensate.
This means that both two and three rider teams are now open to compete with any class of bike of their choice. Teams that want to race 2 or 3 Thunder Class bikes are welcomed.
Example – A two rider team can compete with two Supersport or two Superbikes, or a mix of both. No Thunder Class bike would be required.
This will enable all racers to participate in the event.

Cash Prizes and Awards
Thanks to the generosity of Andrews’s wife, Annette, we will be offering cash prizes for ALL competitors that finish on the podium.
Endurance Race Cash Awards:
1st Place Team - $150.00 for each team rider
2nd Place Team - $100.00 for each team rider
3rd Place Team - $75.00 for each team rider
In addition to the cash awards detailed above, Annette has graciously provided additional prizes that will be available and allocated to lucky racers and riders throughout the course of the day on Saturday.

Prize for best team name! (Very subjective judging)
