    Taste of Racing (TOR) is an opportunity for motorcycle enthusiasts to experience the thrill of riding on a track where you won't get a ticket! Sound like fun? Want to try it out? Keep reading.

    OMRRA partners with Motofit Group and they run the show. Promising ‘more smiles per mile’ they setup at the base of the inside tower; look for the MotoFit Group Sprinter van. Show up early during a track crossing (approx 10am) to reserve your spot and take in the races.

    - Registration Opens at 10:30a
    - Tech Inspection Opens at 10:45a
    - Riders Meeting at 11:45a
    - Be ready to go when lunch begins (usually between 12-1p)

    Basic Rules:
    TOR runs during dry conditions ONLY and if the regular schedule has not been truncated due to unforeseen circumstances.
    All riders are required to attend the rider’s meeting.
    Passing must be performed safely with a minimum 6-foot cushion.
    Absolutely NO PASSING in turns 7,8, or 9.
    Gear Requirements - Good helmet, No jeans (textiles are OK though), Boots that cover the ankle, Gauntlet style glove are advised. Back Protectors are highly recommended.
    Your bike must be in sound mechanical shape with no leaks.

    Look at this experience as an organized ride in a controlled environment - no trophies, contingency or cash prizes. You win by completing the session with a smile on your face.
     
  2. Here are some gate coupons to print off and save $2 on gate entry, swing by the #79 pits and say Hi!

  6. Thanks Melbs, I knew I was just being dumb and couldn't find it on there page. Sadly my new rearsets won't be here in time for the next TOR. I'm sure having functional rear brakes is kinda a requirement lol.
     
  7. i'll be there if I get a sitter
     
  8. Lot of interesting stuff going on this weekend at OMRRA/PIR -- electric motorcycles and sidecar racing.
     
  9. Sidecars looked pretty cool crusing the pits at the last round a couple weeks ago.:evil4:
