Points from round 2 are posted:
and round 3 event created:
So round 1 was a success! With most of the grid actually finishing (except for myself). The weather was a bit questionable but worked out in the end. A big thank you goes out to Garrett for setting this all up and to WAMRRA for graciously allowing us to tag along and do our thing!
So here is how it went down:
1 #73 Guido (the 5 speed menace)
2 #83 Garret
3 #16 Patrick
4 #777 Jason
5 #14 Amil
The next round is only 3 weeks away so gear up!
Check out the results page for current points status:
Aaaaannnnd we’re back!
Round 1, Sunday April 28th, The Ridge, Shelton, WA
Round 2, Sunday May 26th, The Ridge, Shelton, WA
Round 3, Sunday June 23rd, GMR, Chilliwack, BC
Round 4, Sunday July 14th, The Ridge, Shelton, WA
Round 5, August 17th-18th, MAC, McMinnville, OR
Round 6, Sunday Sept 1st, The Ridge, Shelton, WA
Round 7, Weekend of 18th-20th October, Buttonwillow, CA
2013 promises to be bigger and better than ever. With 4 dates at the infamous Ridge this year we hit the big time. Bigger track, bigger thrills and higher speeds!
That’s not the only thing that’s changing. This year we will be scoring 2 rounds per race day. So if you kill your scooter in the second round, you’ll still walk away with points from the first.
Also we are breaking things up a bit with the classes. New for this year is Mod and Super Mod.
Mod is all the non bridged exhaust port, cast iron kits under 200cc. Think the old school Polini and Malossi kits we all grew up with.
Supper mod is all the new alloy kits and some of your old favorites. Your Falc’s, Quattrini’s, ali Malossi 172’s and TS1’s etc. plus anything over 200cc goes here.
Hey! Unless the end of the world does happen next week 2013 will happen so we should talk about the race schedule. Please join the conversation here: http://pnwsra.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=general&action=display&thread=322
Well after reviewing the results that I could find/remember I feel ok about posting up the winners… well for the main event anyway.
1st Johnny #101
2nd Jason #777
3rd Dayn #76
Congratz to Andrea and Amil who came in 4th & 5th respectively.
The full results are on the results page and I reserve the right to be completely wrong so please let me know if I am.
Looking forward to 2013 but I’ll post more on that later.
Due to a low potential turnout it looks like Buttonwillow may not be worth the trip. Just in case there is a hidden hord of racers planing to head down this weekend you should contact the ASRA first.
Round 2 at The Ridge
Hey all you speed demons, here’s the perfect event to get into 4th gear. We will be racing on the full sized road course at the Ridge in Shelton Washington.
This isn’t for scoots that can’t break 55mph. Time to up-gear your tranny (scooter not cross dresser) and get ready for some real fast cornering.
Being a full sized track we haven’t decided if this event will be for points but it will definitely be for bragging rights. No matter what it will be tonnes of fun.
Address: 1060 W Eells Hill Rd, Shelton, WA, 98584
Race One: 11:05am
Race Two: 4:30pm
Sunday July 15th, 2012
Camping is available the night before, but nothing special. Most likely just camping at the pit area.
For those coming Saturday night, the owner of the track has offered to give a walk through to get an idea of the corners etc. This will happen between 7pm and 7:30pm.
HEY YOU WITH THE SCOOTER AND/OR MOPED! YEAH YOU! Get out and Race! There is a bunch of local and regional racing happening so your excuses are wearing thin….
On that note here it is …. at long last … the official 2012 WEST COAST CHALLENGE!
Round 1 April 14&15 MAC, Mcminville, OR
Round 2 June TBD PGP Kent, WA
Round 3 August TBD PIR Portland, OR
Round 4 September 22&23 GMR, Chilliwack, BC
Round 5 November 9,10&11 BKT Buttonwillow, CA
This year we are spacing out the racing to help promote the local racing scenes in each of the participating cities. Check out the local racing in your area, cut your teeth and get ready for the challenge!
To cap the year off we are taking on the ENTIRE WEST COAST! North & South California ASRA participants will face off against the PSRA for TOTAL COASTAL DOMINANCE! One for the history books and one you won’t want to miss. Definitely worth the drive!
You know the score now SETTLE IT!

We would like to upgrade the “Racers” page of our site with current photos and mini bios. If anyone has a picture of themselves out on the track that they would like to add to this page please email it to me along with your name (or nickname), home town and a short blurb about your scooter or moped. For racers already on this page, if you want to send an updated photo or whatever please do so. If you don’t have a photo of yourself racing then send a related photo of you or your race bike. The only qualification to get on this page is that you must have at least one race under your belt.
Thanks to Mr. Allen for posting these great pictures.
Ok maybe it’s not quite here yet, but soon baby soon. In the next couple of months we will be putting together the schedules for the 2011 Cup Series and local racing in your area. Check back soon to see further updates on this exciting new season. In the mean time, now is the time to be tweaking out your race scoot and doing any major rebuilds that need to be done.
If you’re jonzing to get out on your race scoot and can’t wait for the 2011 season to begin there are still three Winter Series races left at PGP; January 16, February 20 and March 20. Check out PGP under the Tracks heading.
Now is the time to put together a race scoot or moped. The 2011 race season will be here before you know it. We want to see lots of new faces out out on the track next year. Check out our FAQ Page for newbie racers, buy an old set of leathers off Craig’s List and get ready for a great season of racing in 2011!
Many thanks go out to Morgan Muir for providing his creative design services. We look forward to using our new logo for race banners, stickers, t-shirts and misc shwag. (C) PSRA Intellectual Property now!
Christmas is almost here. Be sure to ask Santa for that cylinder kit or disc brake for your race scoot. New Year’s resolution…make it out to all the PSRA Cup Events this year. Soon the days will be getting longer and the track surface will be getting warmer. See you in 2011!
We’ve all given our heads a scratch as Brian passes us on his automatic Honda Elite. Now the Supermoto boys at PGP are doing the same thing. Check out this recent article on him here. It just goes to show that when it comes to engine size, it’s the skills that pay the bills. Way to take scooter racing to a new level Brian!
The 2010 season officially wrapped up with the last cup race at Pat’s Acres in Portland. It was a gorgeous weekend with clear skies, colourful leaves and fast action on the track. After racing, awards were handed out to top point getters. Good work racers, looking forward to the 2011 Cup series and more great local racing!
The local racing schedules for each area have been posted. Check it out and hit a track in your area soon!

If you have never raced or
watched racing keep in mind there is really nothing there so bring
everything with you including Water (you will sweat even on cold
day…well unless you are joy riding) and Food.
not a bad idea to bring something to sit on (good advice for riders
Imagine spending a day in a parking lot in the middle of
nowhere and plan accordingly.
See you there. Bring your friends!
