An all new way to have fun at an NEMRR weekend.
The perfect half step between track days and racing!
You can simply add "Super Street" as an option when you register
Penguin makes it easy to sign up!
These events are run on the Saturdays (with an optional Sunday add-on) that follow Friday Penguin events at NHMS. Penguin ran similar events in the past (known as NESBC events) at both Canaan and NHMS and students LOVED it! These events are run by NEMRR (the only sanctioned road racing organization in New England), but signing up is as a couple extra clicks on your Penguin registration form. Just sign up for a regular school date and you can add Super Street to your form. We'll pay NEMRR and handle your pre-registration for you!!
The basic idea
In short, this is a half step between racing and track days with a focus on FUN more than anything else. You can do it on your Penguin track day level machine and you are completely separate from the licensed racers. Riders get two practices, a practice "race" and a main race. There is classroom and coaching in the morning, and riders get to be a part of the NEMRR weekend without mixing on track with the regular racers. You get the feel of a track day in the morning with the opportunity to take a checkered flag in the afternoon!
NEMRR is offering an optional Sunday program where Super Street riders who rode on Saturday can practice and get an additional race for only $65. You're all done by 12:30 and can still get home early!
Who is eligible?
Super Street is for track day level riders. The only requirement is the completion of one track day in the previous 12 months (the Friday before certainly works). Current racers cannot participate! In fact, if you were ever an expert level racer this is not for you. Former Novice or Amateur road racers must have not competed or held a license for at least three years to be considered for participation.
Do I need a race license?
Super Street riders do not need a full NEMRR license like other participants. The special "Super Street" license is half the price of a regular license. The Provisional Super Street license gets you in the NEMRR system, an official number and 3 weekends worth of free transponder rentals (value - $105). If you are going to ride as a regular NEMRR Novice full racer (not in Super Street) on the Saturday after the Penguin event - DO NOT sign up for the Provisional License on the Penguin site, your licensing is always done Friday at the track by the NEMRR staff.
Super Street Riders - You MUST purchase an annual provisional license on the Penguin site when you sign up for your first event. That license is validated during the morning on your first Saturday.
The cost to participate in a Super Street Saturday is only $155. This includes class, track time (2 practices, a heat and a final) and a weekend NEMRR pit pass. If you do both Saturday & Sunday the cost is a total of $220. Penguin riders can sign up as an add-on on the registration form for the Friday school prior to the weekend. Simply choose general registration, pick your Penguin Friday Class (usually Track Experience) and then add on Super Street and your license fee if this is your first event.
Bike Preparation and Gear
The riding equipment rules (what you wear) are exactly the same as for the Penguin School. If you're good for Friday, you're good for the weekend. This is also the same case for you motorcycle with two small exceptions: You must have a while front number plate area large enough to display a 3 digit number with 8" (standard) numbers and you must have a transponder mounting bracket. A actual plastic plate, white Vinyl decal or even white duct tape is good for the number plate. Numbers and brackets are always available at NEMRR events at a trackside vendor. That's it. You get a free transponder rental (which you pick up at registration) at your first three events.
After you've participated in your first Super Street event, you can sign up for future events two ways. First, you can simply sign up on the Penguin Registration Page for your desired date/weekend or second, you can sign up on the NEMRR website (you'll get your account set up on Friday night of your first weekend). We can't wait to see you at the track this season!!
