An all new way to have fun at an NEMRR weekend.
The perfect half step between track days and racing!
Penguin makes is easy to sign up! (sign up will be on Penguin forms by March 1st)
These events are run on the Saturdays (with one Saturday/Sunday big event in September) that follow the Friday Penguin events. Penguin ran similar events in the past (known as NESBC events) at Canaan and NHMS and we LOVED the results so much that we're making it super easy for Penguin students to take part. 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. 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 the only requirement to get a "license" is to have completed one track day in the past 12 months! 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!
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 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. ($67.50 prior to 7/1, $50 7/1 - 8/31, $32.50 9/1-12/31). Your license gets you in the NEMRR system, an official number and 3 weekends worth of free transponder rentals (value - $105) so we can give you timing /scoring and lap time results.
You purchase a provisional license when you sign up for your first event. That license is validated during the morning classes of your first Saturday.
The costs 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. For the two day event in September the cost will be a total of $285. Penguin riders can sign up as an add-on on the registration form for the Friday school prior to the weekend.
Bike Preparation and Gear
The riding equipment rules are exactly the same as for the Penguin School. If you're good for Friday, you're good for Saturday. This is also the same case for motorcycles with two small exceptions: You must have a while front number plate large enough to display a 3 digit number with 8" (standard) numbers and you must have a transponder mounting bracket (available at all 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 add the Saturday on to a Friday Penguin Signup or second, you can sign up on the NEMRR website (you'll get your account details during your first weekend). We can't wait to see you at the track this season!!
