In return, the new rider will receive their first WERA Competition License for $60.00 (this is a $50.00 discount) and if they take a WERA Rider’s School they will get 20% ($20.00) off their school. For any rider on the fence about whether or not to join, this is an excellent savings on an otherwise expensive sport.
WERA’s first round of the season gets underway this weekend, January 25 – 26 at NOLA in Louisiana with a double header event. NOLA is offering Friday practice with a discount to licensed WERA Riders. For those on the west coast, February 8 – 9 will be the first round of the WERA West Sportsman Series presented by Lucas Oil, featuring the Kenny Anderson F3 and EZ-Up C Superstock Novice Classes – Racersedge.com will offer Friday practice for this event. Then the month rounds out with Talladega GP on February 22 – 23.
