Superbikes open season this weekend

The Central Roadracing Association (CRA) will be at BIR May 13-15 with its amazing brand of Superbike racing.

This is the first of five weekends that the CRA will be at BIR this season. With dozens of amateur Superbike racers on hand for the weekend, the CRA offers riding lessons for new riders, practice sessions and ultra-competitive racing. The best vantage points to watch the racing is on the corners, where riders fly by on two wheels and a knee. The CRA will be using BIR’s 2.5-mile Competition Road Course.

Racing6The weekend event begins Friday with practice sessions and a five-lap new rider race at the end of the day. Saturday starts with practice sessions in the morning and then eight-lap races in the afternoon. The day culminates with two 18-lap Trophy Dash races. Sunday features eight-lap races all day after a morning practice session.

Daily admission is $25, and kids 12 and under are free. On-site camping is free with a multi-day ticket.
