New Rider Information
OMRRA will offer two New Racer Schools in 2013; April 19th and July 26th.
Additionally, we will host several free introductory New Racer Workshops.
The cost of New Racer School is only $199, and includes your race license, classroom, and on-track riding at Portland International Raceway.
For the price of a track day, you can become a motorcycle racer!
Why race? Many reasons including building your skills well beyond what.s possible on the street, the thrill of 2-wheel competition, and the likeminded people you.ll meet at OMRRA.
But, nothing answers the .Why Race?. question better than OMRRA race videos like these:

OMRRA NOVICE LICENSING INFORMATION
1. Fill out and submit the three forms below to the OMRRA office. In return, OMRRA will email you a confirmation packet and your assigned Novice race number.
2. Attend the OMRRA New Rider School (requires approved riding gear and properly prepared motorcycle). Our school provides multiple classroom and on-track sessions, and includes a written test before graduation. If you pass all aspects of the school you receive an OMRRA Novice License, and will be allowed to participate in your first Novice Race.
3. Novice racers may then work toward their Expert license by achieving lap time targets, by not crashing over a specified number of races, and by performing volunteer work for the club. OMRRA relies upon the efforts of many volunteers, and is a non-profit Association.
4. Riders with recent Expert level road racing experience (within the last five years) at a recognized motorcycle race organization may apply to become OMRRA Expert riders without attending the OMRRA New Rider School. Racers with more than a five year lapse may petition the OMRRA Board to be allowed to begin racing at OMRRA as an Expert, but may be required to begin with OMRRA as a Novice.
