Motorcycle Monthly - - News -

It’s the sort of boot camp for bik­ers that can see you riding along­side the elite of two-wheeled fun. And you can get book­ing up your time with the Texas Tor­nado right now.

Start­ing off the year for Ed­wards and crew is the al­ways pop­u­lar Racer Camp, slated for Fe­bru­ary 12 to 18. The week in­cludes on-track cur­ricu­lum and drills, team ac­tiv­i­ties, a four-race points pay­ing se­ries as well as for the first time ever, road­track in­struc­tion.

The Tar­mac por­tion of Racer Camp will take place at SpeedS­portz Rac­ing Park lo­cated in New Caney, TX. SpeedS­portz is a 30-minute drive from the Tor­nado com­pound which in­cludes two tracks, a club­house and ameni­ties. Stu­dents will need to bring their own leathers, boots and gloves. The camp pro­vides all off-road gear in­clud­ing Arai hel­mets that will work for the Tar­mac sec­tion of the course.

Stu­dents will be riding along­side spe­cial guests in­clud­ing BSB men James El­li­son, Peter Hick­man, James Ris­poli and World Su­pers­port racer, Sheridan Mo­rais.
