The time has come. Round One of the 2016 SOAR Superbike Series is upon us - May 27th-29th. This is our only long track event of the season so ensure you don’t miss it. The schedule for Round One has been posted.
This season we have added a Supermoto class to the schedule and there are many racers looking forward to trying it out the new Grand Bend Supermoto track. Special thanks to Paul Spriet and the Grand Bend staff for allowing us to build and use the supermoto track as part of SOAR events. Also thanks to Donovan Paige, Jenn Roth and the “Tards on Tards” for their valuable input and advice on its design. I am positive that this will be a premier (true) supermoto track as it boasts 70% pavement and 30% dirt – it will be something to behold.
Also returning this season is our growing Racer5 Endurance series. It was nice to see the big fields in 2015 and I look forward to even greater racing from our endurance teams. On that note, I recently purchased a large digital weatherproof endurance timer which should make for a better experience in the pits.
If you are registered for the SOAR race school on Friday, May 27, 2016, please check in at registration upon arrival and you will be given instructions onsite. The school does not start until after the riders meeting.
Pre-entry rules remain in place so be sure to register ahead of time and save the rush at the track. Remember, all pre-entries must be RECEIVED no later than 8pm on the TUESDAY prior to the event weekend. Late entries will be charged AT TRACK pricing.
Pre-entry payment has changed slightly due to our new payment processing system. Please complete your race registration form (you will notice that there is no longer a section for your your credit card number) and submit it to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will issue you an invoice with instructions on how to pay through our secure, online ecommerce solution. This is temporary until we launch our new site.
Another note, if you chose to pre-register (which will save you time and money) we can now accept interact e-transfer. In addition to Visa and MasterCard, we can also accept American Express and Discover Cards. Due to this changeover, we will not be able to accept payments by debit at the track, so if you choose to pay at the trace, only cash and credit cards will be accepted. We are anticipating to accept debit once again, later in the year.
I am looking forward to a stellar SOAR season and welcoming all to the track.
