OMRL 2020 Race Series

We feature competitive racing classes for 50cc minis all the way up to 650cc Motard motorcycles. Racing is divided into 7 classes; Formula 1, Formula 2, Formula 3, Stock Moto, Grom/Z125, Supermoto, and Kids 50. We also offer exhibition classes; Stock YSR50, Scooter Stock, Scooter Specials, and Kids 50 depending on turn out. All classes, except Formula 1, are open to Beginner and Novice divisions. Excluding exhibition classes, riders in each class compete for series points, trophies, and awards. All Kids 50 races are FREE!* Medical personnel are present at all race events to support a safe and enjoyable race experience for all participants.

*Season license required. Must meet class rules ages 5-12

News

Get your pre-registration done early!  We have opened registration for Round-1 at Fremont Raceway Park!


Racing can't get here soon enough!!!

Thank you everyone for attending the 2020 OMRL Awards Banquet!


For those who were unable to attend, please see below for a recap of everything discussed. 


1.  GP-1, GP-2, GP-3 Classes Introduced.  Will race with F-1, F-2 Expert, and F-3 Expert, but grid separately.  Scoring will be separate of their respective Formula Class.  Bikes that fit in the F-1, F-2, or F-3 class, but have a GP chassis will fit into these new classes (ie. Ohvale, Buccimoto, NSR, etc). 

2.   Race Fees for all tracks except Pitt Race went from $50 to $60 and Pitt Race increases from $100 to $110.  This does not include transponder rental or insurance. 

3.  Failure to pre-register PRIOR to the start of registration for a race will incur a $10 administration fee.  Season License Holders will get (1) free pass on this per season.  If you fail to pre-register and wish to use your free pass, we will punch your season license card.  

4.  Reminder that alcohol and drugs are to NEVER be consumed prior to Racing or Practice.  There is a ZERO TOLERANCE policy on this.  

5.  It is incredibly sad to announce, but news that the landowner of CRP has passed away and Circleville Raceway Park has been shut down indefinitely.  The board will continue to stay in contact with the family members; trying everything we can to see if it is possible to race there in 2021 or in the future at all.  In the meantime, the Board is working diligently with the expectation that we will NOT be able to race at CRP in the future to fill in the races with other tracks.  We will do our best to keep everyone informed on what is going on.   

6.  Modification of the starting lights - Instead of the starting lights staging the lights 1-2-3-OFF, we will be staging all 3 lights simultaneously and then lights go off, the race will start.  Hopefully, this will help eliminate jump starting and allow the starter to be more aware of who potentially jump starts so they can penalize appropriately if the person doesn’t self penalize themselves. 

7.  Addition of a heavyweight class.  Will be F-3 rules with 195lb min. Dry weight.  The class will NOT be separated by NOVICE or EXPERT, but by weight alone.  This will be a separate race and scored in the Championship!

8.  OMRL will have 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place Plaques created for those who finish on the Podium of races to be able to use for photos for their own use.  These plaques will be made available at the end of race days for anyone who wishes to get their photo taken after their races for finishing in the Top 3.  

9.  Please remember we all represent OMRL when we are at the track.   We must make sure all decisions made during a race weekend are in the proper spirit of how we should conduct ourselves at the track.  Most of these tracks are graciously allowing us to camp there the entire weekend and we cannot be straining these relationships by acting unprofessionally.  If you notice others acting inappropriately, feel free to call them out or please reach out to a board member so we can make sure it is handled correctly. 

10.  OMRL has created an Instagram.  Follow @OMRLMOTO for more Ohio’s Mini Racing Content.  Please feel free to  tag us in your photos as well. 


Thank you all for being incredibly flexible this past year, creating an incredible 2020 season.  We are looking forward to the 2021 season.  

Attention in the paddock - Endurance Racers!!!


It appears many did not read the actual announcement, so I wanted to post a answers to a few questions I’ve been getting.


Toby Kemsuzian Financial Planner with Skylight Financial Group is providing food and beer/soda/water for all racers for after the event.  Skylight Financial will be bringing in a food truck for free food and he wants all the racers to take advantage of this. 


Secondly, the race is FREE to all season license holders.  Anyone who plans to race that is not a season license holder will need to pay $20 entry fee.  (This does not include transponder rental or insurance - that will still be required from all racers/teams).


Lastly, there are a few guys still looking for teams.  Matthew Vodraska (exp) and Justin Paskey (exp. but can be considered a novice on your team because he was force bumped) and a few others.  Please make sure I have your teams documented on the original announcement.


Looking forward to seeing you all this weekend!!!

We are pleased to announce the details to our endurance race this year, sponsored by Financial Planner Toby Kemsuzian and Skylight Financial Group.  Please check out the details of the event at https://omrlmoto.com/skylight-financial-group-endurance-cup 

It's RACE WEEK! Round-2 at CRP is just around the corner.

We are incredibly excited to host our first round of the year! While our excitement is high, we are still wanting to be safe. Therefore, we are going to be making a few announcements on policies that will be different this weekend than you may previously have experienced.

We will be opening registration a little earlier than normal to allow more time for registration to prevent people waiting in line. If you are looking to register, please be courteous and keep the numbers waiting in line to a minimum. We will provide a large number of pens to prevent multiple people from using the same pen at registration (you are encouraged to bring your own pen).


There will be no spectators allowed at the event! Only racers and necessary personnel (staff, starter, flaggers, parents of a racer, etc). We do not want any issues from outside forces saying we are being unsafe with the event, which is why this decision is being made. We are keeping the attendees to the required minimum.


Rider's meeting will be for new riders to OMRL. We might implement a rider's meeting video for everyone to watch with our basic safety rules, flag colors, etc. but will have a live rider's meeting for all new racers to OMRL.


All paddock areas should be safely distanced from each other. We will likely have quite a few people so we need to do the best we can at this to fit everyone but still remain a safe distance apart. All attendees need to follow proper social distancing guidelines and masks are recommended, but not required.


Lastly, if there is ANYTHING you feel the staff can do to make the races as safe as possible, please feel free to post a comment or send anyone of us a message privately and we will do our best to accommodate any requests.


Thank you all and we look forward to seeing you all in a few days at CRP.


P.S. - Please remember we will have a practice on Saturday and racing on Sunday. Normal race fees on Sunday plus all racers will be required to purchase a single day race license or the full season license. Lastly, please don't forget to PRE-REGISTER at omrlmoto.com!!!!

Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, we are UNABLE to host Round-1 at CRP. We've tried incredibly hard to get this event to happen, but it just didn't work out.

We are still looking forward to our Round-2 dates to be opening weekend for OMRL 2020 at CRP on May 16 & May 17.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused our racers and their families with such short notice, but we were trying everything we could do to still hold this event.

Stay safe and looking forward to seeing all you racers soon!
