Yamaha Champions School… Challenge Cup

Arrive & Ride

The Yamaha Champions Riding School, based at Miller Motorsports Park, has created the Yamaha Champions Riding School Challenge Cup racing series.

This opportunity is available only to graduates of the Yamaha Champions Riding School or the Freddie Spencer Riding School who have no prior racing experience. The three-race series will take place at Miller Motorsports Park June 17-19, August 13-14 and October 6-8.

The Yamaha Champions Riding School Challenge Cup offers entrants the chance to take part in club-level motorcycle racing, compete in multiple events at each event and obtain a racing license, all while participating in the Yamaha Champions Riding School with riders who are previous graduates of the program.

Video and special drills will be incorporated into this program during the racing events, and all students will ride on Dunlop 211 GP-A tires warmed with Chicken Hawk tire warmers prior to each session.

All on-track sessions and races will be conducted with only the riding school participants and instructors on the track.

"We have been looking for a way to take the Yamaha Champions Riding School to the next level," said school director Daniel Short, "and the Yamaha Champions Riding School Challenge Cup does just that. This will provide the ultimate experience for riders who not only want to learn the limits of their skill and machine but want to put it all together on the track in a competitive environment."

The Yamaha Champions Riding School Challenge Cup is an opportunity unavailable at any other school, and is limited to only 20 riders. The cost is $5,000 per event or $15,000 for the three-race series.

To participate in the Yamaha Champions Riding School Champions Cup, please call Daniel Short at (801) 891-7901.For more information about the Yamaha Champions Riding School click here.
