Begin Press Release:


Millville, NJ – January 19, 2018 – The Yamaha Champions Riding School (YCRS) announces two more classes at New Jersey Motorsports Park, growing the 2018 schedule well over 20 schools with more to come.

Wednesday and Thursday, July 11-12, will be a two-day ChampSchool and Thursday, July 12, will also host a ChampDay program. Both programs are strategically scheduled during the days leading up to the 2018 AHRMA National Historic Cup Roadrace Series event July 13-15 at the same Thunderbolt track at New Jersey Motorsports Park.

This is not a specific event just for AHRMA participants and is open to all track or street riders who want to learn Champions Habits, the techniques used by the best riders in the world to not only go quick, but do it safely.

AHRMA racers need only to look at the riders who are consistently quick at AHRMA events: Nick Ienatsch, Nate Kern, and Chris Boy…to name a few…are all educated in Champions Habits. The event is open to street riders, track day riders, club racers, and professional racers who will all take away skills, techniques and approaches to help their riding, including fitness pointers from ChampBody.
