Yamaha Champions Riding School
In September, Miller Motorsports Park announced that the Yamaha Champions Riding School would discontinue operations at the conclusion of 2013 due to ” in-depth evaluation that determined the school could not be profitably sustained over the long term.” This sent a shock across the industry, but today Yamaha announces the return of YCRS at New Jersey Motorsports Park. Following is the official release.
Yamaha Motor Corporation is excited to be partnering again with the talented team that makes up the Yamaha Champions Riding School (YCRS).
Working in conjunction with the world class New Jersey Motorsports Park (NJMP) in Millville, N.J., lead instructors Nick Ienatsch and Ken Hill along with heroes Scott Russell and Larry Pegram will bring their unique philosophy to many new students.
Students can look forward to two- and three-day classes that feature the techniques needed to increase the joy and safety of motorcycling.
Students at the school can plan on at-track housing and group dinners as YCRS nurtures a sense of community. This extends far beyond the course into track days, overseas tours, online support through webinars, Smart TV episodes, travel schools and FasterSafer.com
David Docktor (Yamaha Motorcycle Marketing Manager) says: “Yamaha has a long standing commitment of supporting rider training and safety and it is our belief that Yamaha Champions Riding School is key to accomplishing this goal. The skills Nick Ienatsch and his team of instructors instill in their students is invaluable to becoming safer motorcyclists.”
Every student at the Yamaha Champions Riding School will have the best bikes Yamaha has to offer at their disposable with the four-time AMA Superbike Championship winning R1 and AMA Sportbike Championship winning R6 leading the charge. Students will also have access to the all new FZ-09 and perennial fan favorite FZ1.
