2 Day Course – May 9-10, 2019
Our goal with this class is to create knowledgeable, skilled and focused racers who fully understand all aspects of the sport and to give them the necessary tools and guidance needed to achieve a successful and safe racing career.
The RSR Drag School is centered on the racer. We begin with the fundamentals and the basics of the sport and move on to physical skills, mental focus and strategies proven successful. We touch on bike prep and creating a routine to ensure track readiness. Open discussions with students to answer each and every question will help to further the confidence needed to become skilled and reduce frustrations when under the pressure and excitement of motorcycle drag racing.
Our complete 2 Day Drag School features a full day of classroom time at Schnitz Racing in Decatur, Indiana to cover every aspect of motorcycle drag racing including:
- Track – How the timing system works
- Reaction Time – How to improve and be consistent
- How we learn – None of us are born knowing how to race
- Visualization – How to win before leaving the house
- Weather – This is an outdoor sport
- Bike Prep – Can’t win if it won’t start
The second day will be spent at Muncie Dragway
in Albany, Indiana putting this information to the test to work through those stubborn bad habits and help improve new ones.
Allow Ryan Schnitz’s
years of experience and success guide you to a more professional racing career.
Do you provide a motorcycle? No. We are not selling you a “racing experience”. We want to retrain your bad habits and allow you to gain new skills on YOUR motorcycle. We feel that providing a school bike would not allow you to gain the confidence you need when you travel back to your local track.
Do you offer a track course only? Yes, but only if you have completed our classroom portion first. You wouldn’t want to learn how to fly without knowing how to taxi and land the plane. This is also very true for drag racing. It’s the details and mental preparation that really separate the racers from the champions.
What safety equipment do I need? Full Leathers, enclosed helmet, gloves and boots are required. You will also need a Tether Kill Switch installed on the motorcycle.
What needs to be done to my motorcycle for track use? Preparing your motorcycle for the drag strip is minimal. The only safety requirements are a chain guard, 2″ of ground clearance with you on the motorcycle and a tether kill switch. These are mandatory and you will not be able to make a pass without these.
How many passes will I get? This varies with every student, motorcycle, and class. We are concerned more with quality of passes than quantity. Doing something correctly a few times is much more valuable than doing it incorrectly over and over. Many of our students get 8-10 passes throughout the day.
How is a rain out handled? We consider 4 hours of open and available track time to be a complete day of track training. If we have excessive down time due to weather or other track conditions that prevents us from having a full 4 hours of track time, we will invite you back to another track day at a future class.
