WMRC 2014 Race Schedule

If you're not interested in actually racing then consider coming out and watching the races this year as It's always a lot of fun. For the more adventuresome you can come out and volunteer to work a corner as we always need more help.
For those that have never been on the trackbefore and are interested in getting an easy start we offer a "Taste of Racing" program on the lunch break. You can be lead around on the track by a WMRC racer with your own bike for only $10.00.

This saturday come on out (10.30 am) and help bag some bales at Mission Raceway Park! We need to get these bales ready for the first round of racing on May 10th. As an extra incentive you can get some keen insight into the track by the WMRC #1 plate holder and Jason Primore's Star School instructor, Spero Benias.
He's kindly offered to those volunteers interested that once the days work has been finished he will be lead a track walk and telling all of his go fast secrets.

There is no cost for this, all you need to do is be at the track at 10:30am on Apr 26th to help with the WMRC Hay Bale Party (we will be bagging & taping the hay bales and washing the Airfence). We'll do the track walk as soon as we finish with everything so the more people that show up the quicker it will go.

Who's in?

we're back on track this weekend! if you're not dong anything come on out and check out the races! if you're any interest even consider watching the races from a corner and volunteering! if it's dry we'll also be having our taste of racing where during the lunch break you can be led around the track by one of our pro racers. all info can be found at www.WMRC.CA

we'll be on track around 9am..

A call for vounteers for the 2014 WMRC race season
Volunteer

If you have any interest in corner working this year please read this. It's not required to ask if we need help -We always need help!

I'm hoping to get an early start at rounding up some people who might be interested in coming out to do some corner marshalling during our 2014 race dates!



The first 2 race rounds will be held on May 10/11 and these rounds will also be the first rounds of the Western Canadian Championship. We can always use as many volunteers as possible to help make the weekend a success -rain or shine.
We will be providing all the information and instruction necessary and we'll also be providing lunch, as well as water and snacks in all corners to help keep everyone hydrated and as comfortable as possible throughout the day.

Please feel free to contact me through a PM if you have any questions or require any additional information.

I hope to see as many of you come out and enjoy the best seats in the house and assist in helping make a great weekend of WMRC racing possible!

Some notes and extra information:

Please DO NOT wear any RED, YELLOW OR GREEN clothing as it can be a distraction when you are in the corners.
The orientation meeting starts promptly at 8:00 AM at the tech area.
I'd recommend wearing a long sleeve shirt, bring a hat, a pair of work gloves and maybe bring bug spray in case the mosquitoes are out.
Please, NO SHORTS, SANDALS, OR FLIP FLOPS! If you have to run and pick up a freshly crashed bike they have a tendancy to be hot and can leave nasty burns/scars

We're back racing at Mission Raceway Park this weekend, Saturday July 26th & 27th. If you're around make sure to come on out and see the action.

On Sunday we'll be hosting the Bernie Ryan track walk for the kids of the BC Children's Hospital are kids and parents are welcome and this is free.

We had another great weekend! awesome weather and great company. We had the Taste of Racing both days and even had Bernie Ryan's Track walk on Sunday as well, which the kids always enjoy.
It was my first weekend racing my 250 after selling my 600 and there was a lot of adjustment but I think I've got it figured out.. and man, the 250 racing is fun! there's always someone to battle with.

Check out this sequence of my friend getting collected in turn 1. Luckily he was mostly ok. http://www.allenbargen.com/Sports/WM...es#!/i-t5CqX9d


The next and final rounds will be on September 27th and 28th. Come check it out!

This weekend (saturday, September 26th & Sunday September 27th) the WMRC returns to Mission to wrap up the 2014 racing season. It's been an awesome season and the championship is on the line -so the action should be intense! The action starts with practices at 9.00am.

Come on out and support your local racers, club and track. If you would like to see the action up close and personal -volunteer Volunteer to work in a corner. We always need help so if you have time to give, please consider helping.

If it's dry we will be running our Taste of Racing 2014 Taste of Racing during the lunch break. For $10.00 you can use your bike to check out the track first hand with some parade laps led by an expert WMRC racer.

If you've never been, check it out. This is you last chance until next year!

If you're coming out in the morning you should try to be there for 8.30. If that's too early i'd suggest coming after lunch, if that's all you can do it would still be appreciated. lunch is around noon.
