Purpose

The MRA designed the SuperStreet class for motorcycle enthusiasts who are not licensed roadracers, but who’d like to experience motorcycle roadracing on a real racetrack without the substantial investment in bike preparation and transportation equipment that club level racing typically requires. Costs for entry are low compared to the other sprint classes and bike prep is minimal. This allows people to “get their feet wet” and see if roadracing is truly for them without making a full commitment. Basically, if you are equipped to ride at a trackday you can race in the SuperStreet class.

Different from a track day, though, you will participate in an actual race against the other riders in your class where you will use race strategies & passing tactics in competing for single goal of getting to the finish line first.

Procedure

The Superstreet class is held on Saturdays in conjunction with MRA race events at the racetrack. It starts with a classroom session to discuss racetrack procedures, motorcycle preparation, and race craft tactics specific for motorcycle roadracing.

After the classroom/registration session, which will be about 1 hour, we will go through bike tech inspection. Then you’ll be paired up with an MRA race instructor who will guide you through some basic on-track racing drills and make tailored suggestions to help you go faster. The on-track sessions will be interleaved with MRA races so you’ll be able to take a breather, make bike adjustments, chat with the instructors, or watch the MRA’s Saturday sprint and endurance races.

The grand finale of the day will be the SuperStreet sprint race where you’ll be assigned a grid spot, given the green light, and compete in a full length multi-lap race against the SuperStreet field in a no-limits contest to the finish line.

Costs

Cost for the SuperStreet class and race is $100. It is for non-licensed riders only. Any racer possessing a valid roadracing license from any club is ineligible for this class. There are no trophies or season points for this class. A MRA associate membership will be included with your first entry fee of the season.

Motorcycle & Rider Requirements

Your motorcycle should be in good working order. Roadracing puts MUCH more stress on your motorcycle compared to canyon carving and you should make sure your bike is good shape with good tires, properly adjusted steering head bearings, suspension settings & brakes. For the SuperStreet event, you are not required to “safety wire” any parts, but are required to tape up your lights and mirrors. All controls and wearing parts should be in superb working order.

It is very important that you DO NOT have glycol based coolant in your cooling system. If your bike boils over or spills glycol on the track, it is impossible to clean up so you will ruin everyone’s day.

Superstreet class bike tech rules (see MRA Rulebook section 2.9):

  1. Unlimited displacement, modifications and engine configurations.
  2. Coolant must be only water, Red Line Water Wetter, Royal Purple Ice (NOT Engine Ice or Evans coolant), or Silkolene Pro CCA coolant additives are allowed in liquid cooled motorcycles. Glycol based substances are prohibited. For the purpose of these rules, motorcycles which use engine oil as a primary cooling fluid are considered to be air-cooled.
  3. Neat and clean. Motorcycles that are dirty or show potentially dangerous bodywork damage will not be approved.
  4. Tires must be in good condition and may not be re-caps. Valve caps must be installed. Tread must be at least 50%.
  5. Operational front and rear brakes, with at least 50% thickness.
  6. Operational handlebar-mounted kill switch or button.
  7. Self-closing throttle.
  8. All lights and blinkers must be taped or removed.
  9. Side stands can remain on bike but must have good working return spring.
  10. Silicone brake fluid is not allowed (DOT 5 Brake Fluid).
  11. An MRA provided decal will be displayed on both sides of the bike at least axle line high or higher.
  12. All machines will be left to VP of Rules and Tech final approval.
  13. Riders must meet requirements as defined in the MRA Rulebook Section 5.1 Rider Equipment.
  14. All riders must conform to and have an understanding of Sections 8, 9, 10 and 11 of the MRA rulebook.
  15. The rider bears the responsibility of presenting a motorcycle in conformance with all requirements.
  16. All motorcycles and rider equipment must pass MRA technical inspection before participating in any practice session, race or school.
  17. The burden of complying with the rules regarding class suitability and technical requirements rests with the entrant. It is his/her responsibility to seek approval of the VP or Rules & Tech of any areas in question.
  18. The VP of Rules & Tech or any MRA official reserves the right to inspect any race motorcycle or rider apparel or equipment at any time during race day for compliance to MRA technical standards and may revoke the Technical Inspection Approval Sticker of any motorcycle at any time during the race day.
  19. Any motorcycle or rider involved in a crash will be subject to re-inspection. Damage that in any way endangers rider safety must be repaired prior to starting or continuing any further practice or competition.

Schedule

SuperStreet classes will be held on the Saturdays of MRA Race events. Click here for the current MRA season schedule.

On Saturday, the schedule is:

  • 11:00am – Arrive at the track, perform any pit / equipment setup as you need. You should have all of your equipment ready to go through tech & get on the track prior to the start of the registration/classroom session at noon.
  • Noon – Classroom registration and instruction begins. Don’t be late!
  • 1:00pm – Classroom session ends, begin SuperStreet tech inspection
  • 1:30pm – pair up with instructors, start the on-track drills and instruction sessions
  • The rest of the day will alternate with on-track and off track instruction sessions finalizing with the SuperStreet sprint race.

All bikes must be unloaded and ready to go at 1pm and must be cool enough to allow the radiator cap to be removed for coolant inspection. Any bike still hot will not pass tech due to us not being able to check coolant.

There will NOT be time to unload and setup your bike after the classroom/registration period, so please be sure that you are 100% ready to go prior to noon.
