New Racer Workshops

SFRC periodically holds workshops for folks interested in getting started roadracing. The workshops are free, and the idea is simple: ice-cold refreshments and hot coffee, a handful of friendly, experienced racers to answer your questions, and resources that’ll help you get from the street onto the track (and the podium). Dates and locations are posted on our home page and in the calendar.

Note:  for the 2014-2015 season on, the Oregon Motorcycle Road Racing Association will be organizing the New Racer Workshops in the Portland area (though the SFRC will continue to help organize and instruct).
