FMRRA Recognizes Its 2018 Champions

2018 Season Championship Beach Party

FMRRA Beach Party Announced for Season Championship Awards (Presented by Palm Beach County Sports Commission)

The Florida Motorcycle Road Racing Association’s 2018 Season came to completion last month, but while other regions of the country are racing in the heat of the summer, Florida racers are gearing up to celebrate this year’s championship with a party for racers, crew, friends, and family. The Series will touch down at the Pompano Beach Pier Pavilions on August 26 for their Second Annual Championship Beach Party.

This season’s awards are being underwritten by Palm Beach County Sports Commission. George Linley, the PBCSC Executive Director said “the Palm Beach County Sports Commission enjoys our partnership with FMRRA and we are looking forward to continuing support of the series and racers into 2019 and beyond. We are excited to join the racers in celebrating this year’s championship finalists.”

Eric Komrowski from Monkey Works Cycle Performance confirmed that MWC will be returning as the beverage sponsor of this year’s party in Pompano.

The highlight of the party is the presentation of the Overall Series Championship and the 9 Primary Race Class Awards. This year the Series also created an Overall Masters Championship which is reserved for racers that are 40 years or older.

The Overall FMRRA Expert Championship triumphantly won by Hurricane Racing’s Team Captain, Seth Starnes. After a year riding in nearly every class FMRRA offers, on top of the many other series and one-off events he participates in, Starnes came out on top snagging the Expert Championship as well as leading Hurricane Racing to the Overall Team Championship at the same time! Starnes’ Hurricane Racing teammate Jonathan Pellnitz brought home second place, followed closely by Topbox Road Racing’s Daryan Martin (2017 Amateur Overall Champion) in third.

This year’s Amateur Overall Championship was taken home by none other than MPH Racing’s Todd Wagner. Wagner came onto the scene this year with an explosive display of potential, many times challenging the Experts for overall race wins, and leading MPH Racing into second place in the Team Championship. BPM Motorsports’ Jose Lloreda claimed second honors with teammate William Wend taking third overall.

A Florida racing veteran, Carl Cohen, took home the perennial Overall Masters Championship in the Expert class followed by none other than BPM Motorsports’ Brad Gordon and Hurricane Racing’s Alejandro Rei. The Overall Masters Amateur Championship was ultimately decided by one point! Yvette Lamar from Hurricane Racing bested Monkey Works Cycle Performance’s Gabriel Figueroa with 274 vs. 273 points. Justin Thorpe of Hurricane Racing Team grabbed third overall with 235 points.

The penultimate class of the Florida Motorcycle Road Racing Association is the SUNOCO Superbike 1000. This class features “unlimited” spec bikes under 1000cc running Sunoco APEX race fuel. This year, Max Angles (Hurricane Racing Team) won the Expert Championship for the class. Another close battle down to the last round, MPH Racing’s Shannon Andrus took second place over teammate Alex Irzyk by only one point! The Amateur SUNOCO Superbike 1000 was claimed by MPH Racing’s Todd Wagner, with his teammate Derik Johnson in second. Brian Gomez claimed third in the class.

The SUNOCO Superbike 600 class is one of the most competitively attended in the series regularly featuring over thirty racers. Topbox Road Racing’s Daryan Martin dominated the class this year and took home the Overall Expert Class Championship in the process. Hurricane Racing teammates Max Angles and Seth Starnes earned second and third respectively. Jose Lloreda and Doug Royce (Topbox Road Racing) had a close battle for the Class Amateur Championship, but Lloreda ultimately took home the overall title in the last round. Hurricane Racing Team’s Dustin Richards was not far behind, laying claim to third place, making great gains in speed this season, and proving his passion for the sport.

MPH Racing’s Shannon Andrus came in second in the “unlimited” SUNOCO Superbike 1000; however, he outright dominated the Superstock 1000 Expert Championship showing his skill when there is less speed differential from modified engines. Teammate Alex Irzyk took second overall followed by Armando Ferrer. Mirroring the Expert Class Championships, MPH Racing again took the top two honors in the Amateur Superstock 1000. Todd Wagner cleaned up taking home first, joined again by Derik Johnson. Mario Gonzalez from NSL Motorsports grabbed third overall in the Amateur division.

The SuperStock 600 class saw the largest fields of all this season as it features stock-engine race bikes that can be put together very inexpensively and offer great bang-for-the-buck in performance. BPM Motorsports’ Brad Gordon earned first overall in the Expert Class Championship with 264 points over Daryan Martin (247 points) with Seth Starnes trailing in third. BPM Motorsports’ Jose Lloreda was awarded the Amateur Class Championship, demonstrating his personal riding skill and the strength of BPM’s bike prep in the class. Topbox Road Racing’s Doug Royce and BPM Motorsport’s William Wend finished second and third.

Seth Starnes finished the class victorious (again) in the Formula Twin Expert Championship, besting Mark Tenn and Moto Corse Performance’s Lee Farmer in the process. Monkey Works Cycle Performance’s Brandon Gindlesperger was awarded the class Amateur Championship along with Shawn McAlees and Kayla Yaakov close behind in points.

The Production Twin Expert Championship saw a season long rivalry between Carl Cohen and Hurricane Racing’s Jonathan Pellnitz. Ultimately, during Round 8 at Roebling Road Raceway, Cohen seized the Overall victory with 289 points over Pellnitz’s 274. Moto Corse Performance’s John Turner was awarded third overall. The Production Twin Amateur Championship saw a full sweep by Suzuki racers. Sam Purkis, Michael DeRoche, and Roger Morisette grabbed the class honors (first through third), all while displaying the brand’s dominance in the class.

The Moto3 class saw Hurricane Racing’s Alejandro Rei take home the Expert Championship in class. Teammate Jonathan Pellnitz took second while Alex Ferreira came in third. The Amateur Class Championship came down to the last race at the last round. In the end, BPM Motorsport’s Charlie Ohana came out on top with 247 points over Alexis Olivera‘s 240. Yvette Lamar took third overall in the amateur ranks.

The SuperStreet 300 Expert Championship featured three top riders all on Yamaha. Seth Starnes and Chase Mollak from Hurricane Racing Team took first and second overall, while German Vacca of BPM Motorsports came in third (close behind Mollak in points). The Superstreet 300 Amateur Championship was a family affair this year. The father-son duo of Michael Norman and Michael Norman Jr from Oviedo, Florida took home first and second. Senior may have won in points this year, but if the last few races are any indicator he better watch out come next season. Hurricane Racing Team’s Dustin Richards took home third overall after eight rounds.

The SuperStreet 250 Amateur Class Championship saw BPM Motorsports’ Alex Ehrenstein sweeping the competition in class with a huge point lead. MPH Racing’s Sonja Ahrens and Leonardo Diaz came in second and third respectively. Miguel Chirino won the Expert SuperStreet 250 Class Championship.

Complete 2018 Championship Standings can be found at www.fmrra.com/championships along with the most advanced racer data portal in the country displaying personal best lap times for each track, best lap times for each weekend, podium counts, starting grids, top ten lap times for each class, tire manufacturer stats, motorcycle manufacturer stats and much, much more.

The 2018 Season Championship Beach Party will feature awards presentations for the top three in all of the above Overall Race Class Championships and first place awards for all of the Sprint and Grande Corsa Class Champions. Race Plates for the Top 10 Overall Expert Champions will be awarded, giving those racers the option to use the number in the 2019 Championship events.

Florida Motorcycle Road Racing Association hopes to announce their complete 2019 Schedule at the party pending some final confirmations from host venues.

FMRRA would like to thank each and every 2018 sponsor for their continued support of our passionate racers and the sport as a whole.

FMRRA 2018 Season Championship Awards Beach Party August 26

By | Race Series News | No Comments

Celebrating the end of our 2018 Season Championship, FMRRA is bringing back the Beach Party! We always talk about our desire to stay out of the summer season for racing. It’s way too hot to be on a race bike, in leathers, on a track. So what would we rather be doing….Partying on the Beach!

For the 2018 Championship Party we have reserved the Pavilion #2 at Pompano Beach and invite you all to join us on August 26th to celebrate. We will be celebrating the end of year 3 for the series and presenting Championship Awards to Overall Expert/Amateurs, Class Championships, and Team Championships!

This would not be a beach party without food, games, and beer! We will have thirst quenchers on hand, barbequing all day, cornhole, games, beach volleyball and more. We bought WAY too much food last year, so this year we are providing the main courses and ask attendees to bring along a side dish they would like to share. That way we all get to try some different stuff and we don’t end up making an unintended contribution to the local food shelter!

Beer Kegs are being provided via our Series Sponsor Monkey Works Performance!

We are working with local hotels for special room rates, and there is plenty of parking right by the pavilion in the garage (why we moved to this location)!

222 N Pompano Beach Blvd, Pompano Beach, FL 33062 – Pavilion #2

FMRRA Welcomes Pabst Blue Ribbon as Official Beer of 2016 Season

By | Race Series News | No Comments

The Florida Motorcycle Road Racing Association (FMRRA) is proud to welcome Pabst Blue Ribbon as its Official Beer of the 2016 Inaugural Championship Season. At each of the FMRRA race weekends hosted at Palm Beach International Raceway and JenningsGP, race winners are congratulated in the Winner’s Circle Presented by Pabst Blue Ribbon.

Our racers and staff alike all love beer! We polled our competitors and were not surprised to discover they don’t drink cheap champagne; then, why serve it on the podium in the Winner’s Circle? We drink beer, especially after making the competition eat exhaust lap after lap. We celebrate victories and toast winners with ice cold Pabst Blue Ribbon. And to keep the celebration going, we invite everyone – whether you’re riding for glory, turning wrenches, or cheering on friends – to join us in the Pabst Blue Ribbon Winner’s Circle to knock back a few cold ones!

Pabst Blue Ribbon is not just any beer – so you would expect the history to be a bit unusual, and it is. PBR was established in 1844 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin by German immigrant Jacob Best and his sons. Pabst was originally called “Select,” but people started asking for that “Blue Ribbon” beer in 1882 when PBR started tying silk ribbons to the bottles. They officially added the words “Blue Ribbon” to the bottle in 1895. Pabst was the first brewery to put beer in cans back in 1935.

Today, this classic American brew has been adopted by a whole new generation of PBR drinkers, and PBR is one of the fastest growing domestic beer brands. For more information, visit www.PabstBlueRibbon.com, and connect with Pabst Blue Ribbon on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

2016 Schedule Update: JenningsGP is back!

Now it’s official! Some of you may have noticed the Easter Egg in our Sunoco Fuel Sponsor announcement yesterday. That was no mistake, FMRRA is excited to confirm we will be bringing Florida club racing back to JenningsGP in 2016. We have updated our May date on the schedule with the new date. Always changing, always evolving. FMRRA promises to continue delivering new, exciting changes to motorcycle racing in Florida.

*Please be aware, JenningsGP still has noise restriction. Make sure your bikes are running mufflers that will stay under the sound limit at the track. Let’s all work together to be good tenants when we take residence for the May race weekend.

We hope everybody has a great weekend! For those of you racing down in Homestead, keep it fast, keep it safe, keep two wheels down (or at least one!) and most importantly keep watching as we continue to roll out more series news. Look forward to seeing you in 2016!

The Series:
For the inaugural four-race winter championship, being hosted at Palm Beach International Raceway, FMRRA is focusing on reinvigorating the format of the typical Florida race weekend. Saturday’s will feature a morning of testing, qualifying, GT racing and as well as sprint races. Sunday’s race schedule will have a day packed full of racing in new classes with new rules to the Florida racing scene.

Technology:
FMRRA has partnered with MYLAPS to utilize the MYLAPS AMB transponders for all racers at FMRRA events. Not only is this the industry-standard, state of the art timing technology, but it will provide for live-streaming of on track race activity both on-line and via mobile phones in the pit lanes!

Social Culture:
The past decade has shown a new landscape of traditional media, and here at FMRRA we are going to embrace that. During race weekends, we will have our team on the ground posting new content to all of our social media pages in the form of racer interviews, race results, photography, video trash talking, and more. Motorcycle racing is full of stories and excitement in the paddock and we are going to make the off-the-track action just as important as the racing itself.
