Interview with the President of Alberta Mini RoadRacing Association (AMRA) Chuck Downey.

Velocity: “Today is the 1st race day of the the Alberta Mini RoadRacing Association (AMRA) of the 2016 season in the Spring Thaw Endurance, how was the day?”

Chuck Downey: “The day went great this is our opening round with our combined Mini & Super Moto Endurance, 3 hour Mini & 2 hour Super Moto Endurance races. The weather was great, we had lots of good people out, lots of entry’s & the track was in great shape, so we had a really great day.”

Velocity: “How many bikes did you have in both races?

Chuck Downey: “17 Bikes in the 3 hour Mini & 12 Bikes in the 2 hour Super Moto, I think both numbers are up over last year.”

Velocity: “Where there many classes in each of the races?”

Chuck Downey: “For the Mini Endurance race is just spec, so basically the machines are supposed to be stock or near stock, there is a few hybrids in there but for the most part stock. Same for the Super Moto it is just 1 class; we don’t have the numbers yet to divide into different categories, so we just run it as just 1 class.”

Velocity: “One thing I noticed is the cornering of the different racers, some have a the knee down in a corner & some a foot down instead.”

Chuck Downey: “Yes road racers have a knee down & some dirt bikers have the foot down.”

Velocity: “So if someone wants to volunteer what should they do?”

Chuck Downey: “Just contact us through the website is best:”

Velocity: “So for racing what is the youngest kids & families can get involved in?”

Chuck Downey: “We have a class for 6 to 9 year olds, almost the closest thing you can get to a sponsored ride. So for 6 to 9 year olds, we have bikes, we have brand new Suzuki GRZs 70s, then we have 5 Hondas from various ages & conditions from before. Then we also have leathers; helmets, boots, gloves & entry fees are paid. All a rider at that age needs to do is buy a yearly membership.”

Velocity: “For a family I have never heard of a better deal. What do you have foe other classes?”

Chuck Downey: “It is a big mix of range of ages of men & women, everyone feels pretty friendly here, no one feels intimidated when out on the track. There is a class for each speed & age group, for comfort level, that is pretty important. When you are racing you do not want to be intimidated, buzz bombed by a bunch of fast guys, lap after lap, you want to be someplace at your own speed, that is what we try to provide.

Velocity: “Thank you for time”

Chuck Downey: “Thank you.”
