Zemke Riding Development: ‘Learn Fast, Learn Now’ with Jake

Zemke Riding Development with Jake ZemkeThere’s one motto of Zemke Riding Development – Learn Fast, Learn Now. And this new track school coached by Daytona 200 winner and AMA Champion Jake Zemke will hold its first event Thursday, March 19, at Buttonwillow Raceway Park.

Zemke Riding Development (ZRD) will run in conjunction with Pacific Track Time, and space is limited to just 20 students so participants can get personal instruction from Zemke.

Personal training from past champions is the ultimate way to enhance skill, and Zemke is loaded with accomplishments.

Here’s a list: 2008 AMA Formula Xtreme National Champion, 2006 Daytona 200, 2011 Daytona 200 Rolex pole position award, over 100 podium finishes in Superbike, BSB, 600 SuperSport, Daytona SportBike, 750 SuperSport, and Formula Xtreme classes. He has also finished in the top three of AMA National Championships 12 times.Zemke Riding Development

Speaking of Zemke, ZRD says “Adding to these achievements is Zemke’s personable, positive attitude. No matter what a student hopes to take away from his training, a day of motorcycling with Zemke is a day well spent.”

ZRD says it will also feature a raffle for its students, with prizes from Alpinestars, Pirelli Tires, Pacific Track Time, Troy Lee Designs, and Jett Tuning. A designated parking area for ZRD students will be coned off and there will be tire service available from CT Racing.
