    I don't have a WERA license yet. For Road Atlanta/Cycle Jam, is the Friday practice ran like a track day event (group rotations each hour)? Asking first, researching later.

    I think I found my answer here: http://www.wera.com/pdfs/eventschedule/cyclejam2022.pdf

    So, for practice on Friday, my 600 and 400 bikes would be in practice groups 1 and 5, respectively.


    Can someone confirm the competition categories are correct below?

    For the 400, looking at Chapter 9 in the rule book: http://www.wera.com/rulebook/Default.asp#ch9

    ...the 400 SEEMS like it would be eligible for any of the following groups. But probably the best-fitting classes are LWT SS Novice and E SS Novice.

    C SUPERSTOCK NOVICE (Up to 650cc 4-stroke multis)

    D SUPERSTOCK NOVICE (Up to 490cc water-cooled multis)

    E SUPERSTOCK NOVICE (Up to 400cc 4-stroke air or water-cooled twins)

    LIGHTWEIGHT TWINS SUPERSTOCK NOVICE (Up to 700cc water-cooled twins with more than 3 valves)

    For the 600, the best-fitting categories appear to be:

    B SUPERSTOCK NOVICE (Up to 750cc multis)

    C SUPERSTOCK NOVICE (Up to 650cc 4-stroke multis)

    Last, I have an ohvale 190. Are they legal for the superbike mini class and will that class run at Cycle Jam?

    1000= A
    750= B
    600=. C

    The lightweight stuff I'm not to familiar with.

    You can race up a class, not down ofcourse.

    What kind of 400?

    The 600 starts in the C classes (Superstock and Superbike) then up to B and you can ride up to A and F1 as well. The 400 would be a bad idea in C no matter which one it is.

    The Ohvale is legal but no minis at Road Atlanta sorry.

    It's a Ninja 400. So...


    HEAVYWEIGHT TWINS SB NOVICE (Any machine legal for Lightweight Twins; No HWT SS category)

    Thanks for the clarifications.

    You don't want to go in heavyweight twins. The potential closing speeds for you and a panigale, not great.

    Look at
    D Superstock
    D Superbike
    E Superstock
    Lightweight Twins Superstock

    All depending on what modifications you have done to the motorcycle.

    I have a couple more questions in regards to 'CHAPTER SEVEN / RIDER and CREW REQUIREMENTS':

    Re # 2 and 12a, can I get a WERA novice racer license by presenting a current CCS license? CCS license was inactive for years but have raced other, local orgs since 2020 and also have done ~15 track days per season since 2020 (7 so far in 2022).

    2. Have a current, valid WERA Competition License or other racing license designated as valid at a particular race. Only WERA Licensed riders will earn points toward an invitation to the Grand National Finals. WERA will allow racers with the following current licenses to participate in two WERA events before said racer is required to purchase a WERA membership: CMRA, CVMA, RACE, WMRRA, OMRRA, CRA (Central Roadracers Association), USCRA, VRRA and AHRMA. Riders who participate in WERA events with another race organization’s license MAY NOT BE EARNING WERA POINTS. Points are only awarded to racers with a current WERA License. Contingency awards are only available to racers with a current WERA license.

    12a) Resume: A resume or display of another organization’s current roadracing competition license may be accepted as proof of ability, and the new licensee may participate in that weekend’s events.

    Re # 12b, WERA race school (I've not raced with WERA before):

    - is it "required"?
    - held on Friday?
    - Is there a way to come out of the school with a novice (N) race license instead of a PN?
    - Will race school students join a particular practice group regardless of bike size? OR will race school students miss out on any practice sessions?

    12b) Successfully completing a WERA approved rider’s school. WERA recognizes most racing schools across the United States, contact the school or WERA to be sure. The length of time between taking the riders’ school and racing must not exceed twelve (12) months.

    Well, I found the exact same questions posted in a 2007 thread. So I have enough information on my last two questions to go foward:

    And the "rs" means 'race school is being offered that weekend:

    5/27-29 WERA Cycle Jam at Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta, Braselton, GA-DH,rs

  10. stickboy274

    stickboy274 Stick-a-licious Tire Dude

    Yes RS is riders school.

    Nope - Start with E Superstock, then up to D Superstock, D Superbike, Clubman.

    rs is a riders school however you've raced recently enough and done enough track time you're fine just using your old CCS license as proof of experience. Double check our rulebook and the flags section to make sure you know our rules on those and you'll be fine.

    I should have responded letting you know we got it. Between driving back from Grattan and normal busy the boss didn't process them last week but should be done today. I will check - but who the heck are you? :crackup:
