Hey,
Maybe some of you fellow USCRA dudes can tell me what I need to do to race at an Ahrma event. Do I need to submit an application with my USCRA license, requesting race numbers etc.? Planning on going to Barber's Vintage Festival in October. I understand transponders are not required.
Also, I may be required to wear a FNG orange jersey for my first Ahrma event. I figured I'd wear my NHF T-shirt and will have instant Street Cred. Keepin it real, representing, yo yo...

Any other helpful hints concerning the organization and/or the Barber facilities would be greatly appreciated.
I downloaded the 2006 rulebook and it appear that I near to procur a fairing to run Bears and Formula 750. I'd rather spend the money in my motor, oh well. At least I'll look the shit even if I'm towing a boat anchor.
BTW, it sure would be nice to have a July or Early August race at Louden or Frontierland to fill the "Raceless gap". Not much time to travel at this point in time.

Thanks,
Jeff Marcoux

Jeff,
When I raced with AHRMA I had to get an AHRMA license...not sure if that's still required or not. I think they may have changed but at the time...about 3 years ago... it was required. I raced with them at Beaver Run in PA, everything went smooth and they were helpful.
But yeah, I sent in an application using my USCRA membership as my previous experience. Their application process is kind of complex, you gotta fax them some stuff etc....at least I did (I might have been in a hurry...don't remember).
Good outfit, shouldn't have any problems. Always good to maintain an AHRMA membership if you can.

Jeff,

Fill out the membership application and fax it in along with a copy of your USCRA #. Do this early so you don't have to jerk around trying to get the new numbers you'll need for AHRMA racing. Or you may luck out and get to keep the number you have. If so you'll be very lucky.

Don't know which bike you have but isn't there a Sportsman 750 class? That shouldn't require a fairing.

Raceless gap - How about Mosport on August 17 and 18th?

Ok. Thanks John and Craig. That's what I thought, I should send/FAX in an application with USCRA membership and request my number, or one similar that can be modified via Electrical tape, (ASAP).

I would like to go to Mosport, but the wife is too close to her due date. I had thought about car-pooling up there from someone from Maine or NH. Hopefully next year. I don't even know how I fanangled the time and "OK" for the Barber event.

I believe the Sportsman class from my understanding requires basically stock components. No rear sets, use of stock engine and stock brakes, upgraded suspension allowed. My BMW R75 is far from stock. I'll take a look at the rulebook again though. I'm going to slap on a 900SS fairing from Clubman Racing Accessories.
See you all at the Granite State championships.

Thanks,
Jeff

Jeff,

Sportsman class is basically anything goes. You're thinking of the Historic Production class that everything needs to be stock.

craig's right, with sportsman, you can change a whole bunch of stuff except add a fairing or over-bore above 750cc's. it's hisoric proddy that you can't change foot position or enhance the motor.
