I thought I would start a thread documenting my novice racing season with WERA. A place to document race reports, bike setup, problems, etc. I know there are many readers on here just like me that just go to track days. I always enjoyed reading about racing, but I never really knew what it would be like so hopefully this will be a fun and informative thread. If not, at least it's a place I can look back on my own to see for myself
And to the more experience racers in here, please comment and let me know what you think! I'm obviously new to this so I welcome any feedback/advice.
If you have an instagram, go follow me! @riserman
Here's the first race I ever entered:
The plan is to race every round of WERA West and see what happens! Ideally, I'm hoping to compete for some championships, but let's not get ahead of ourselves
I'll be entering 4 races every round-B Superstock, B Superbike, C Superstock, and C Superbike. Here's the schedule:
2/4 Auto Club Speedway, Fontana, CA-,
4/8 Auto Club Speedway, Fontana, CA-,
4/28-29 Las Vegas Motor Speedway, Las Vegas, NV,
6/9-10 Willow Springs Int'l Raceway, Rosamond, CA,
7/1 Buttonwillow Raceway Park, Buttonwillow, CA,
8/19 Auto Club Speedway, Fontana, CA-,
9/29-30 Las Vegas Motor Speedway, Las Vegas, NV
Not a whole lot in the way of sponsorships right now, just Hotbodies Racing and Vortex. Admittedly though, I haven't applied for very much support yet because I want to get some experience/good results under my belt first.
