Hi, I'm a prov-nov and would like to race my R3 for the first time at MSRH in June on both Sat and Sun, twice each day if possible to complete my Prov-nov requirement.

The R3 has a full exhaust system, suspension, rearsets, clipons, etc., but engine is stock. My goal is to complete 4 races and not fall off the motorcycle. Which races should I register for Sat and Sun?

Insight appreciated.

I think its two race "weekends" without falling (took me three!). Check the rule book to be certain. Good luck!

a) Provisional Novice riders must complete a minimum of two sprint races each event at two separate events without crashing at any time during that event (including practice) before qualifying for a Novice status License. Taken from Section 1.3 (a)

Look to the rulebook for many answers! http://www.cmraracing.com/content.php?11-rule-book&tabid=123

Thanks, but aren't some of those races run at the same time, different waves?

Saw that, but I understood Sat and Sun were separate "events", no? Or is an event a race weekend?

Or is an event a race weekend?no, sat and sunday are not separate events.....and if you enter more than 2 races over the entire weekend you have to complete all you enter with no crashes,not just the 2 minimum..This also includes any and all practice sessions as well ..you can call me if its not clear to you...

Yes, they are. I run my Ninja 300 in ULWGP (Race 2) and 500SS (Race 4) on Saturday.

Hi Jason,

Here is a link to the Provisional Novice Licensing Procedure which is posted in the Announcements Section of the Forum: http://www.cmraracing.com/showthread.php?22442-Provisional-Novice-Licensing-Procedure&p=219600&viewfull=1#post219600

There are four requirements that a Prov Nov must complete to move to a "regular" Novice status:
*Two race weekends without crashing (including practice), minimum of two races per weekend.
*Two days of corner working.
All four of these requirements must be completed within 12 months of completion of your licensing school. If not completed within those 12 months, you would have to re-take the licensing school.

Here is a link to the 2018 Courtesy Class Guide which is posted on the Forms Page of the website: http://www.cmraracing.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=1388&d=1517240835

Here is a link to the MSR Houston Detailed Weekend Schedule which is posted on the Schedule Page of the website: http://www.cmraracing.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=1538&d=1527276488

All three of those links should help answer a lot of your questions.

Please feel free to contact me at the CMRA office if you have any questions. I'm in the office full time and happy to help with any questions you may have.

Don't be in a hurry to shed the yellow shirt. It does have its perks, especially on the huge ULW grids.....

Good Luck!
