WMRC New Racer Training is a comprehensive, three day program designed to teach the fundamentals of safe track riding and competitive road racing. This course will prepare you to start racing immediately, but is also open and suitable to anyone looking to improve their riding skills or be introduced to track riding. This is not an introduction to motorcycle riding, and is not intended for new riders.
CLASSROOM KNOWLEDGE: Our classroom session will teach you to prepare yourself and your motorcycle for race and track days, advanced riding control techniques, race and track day procedures, etiquette, flags, and safety skills to get you ready for the upcoming riding sessions (and your future on track).
SKILL DEVELOPMENT AND PRACTICE: In this skill development session, you will learn to apply advanced riding techniques in small groups on a simplified circuit. You will receive one-on-one feedback from our experienced instructors and racers who can help you master these skills.
TRACK DAY AND REFINEMENT: Spend a full day with an instructor—both on and off the track—refining your skills, receiving race tips from our experts, and getting familiar with the track in preparation for your future as a racer or track day enthusiast.
