Denver, CO – December 28, 2007 – Charity track day organizer Racing 2 Save Lives has released dates for its 2008 events, after a fourth year of successful fundraising for children’s charities with donations totaling $90,000 in 2007.
R2SL is excited to kick off its 2008 tour with a return to Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele, Utah, on June 4th and 5th. This event is uniquely situated between World Superbike/AMA and WERA Nationals, providing race fans, arriving racers, and R2SL’s loyal participants a chance to experience Miller’s unique layout and hospitality once more.
Next up, R2SL will visit the new Motorsport Park Hastings in Hastings, Nebraska on July 10th and 11th. This track boasts two and a half miles of twists and turns that riders rave about and a community that welcomes track day participants and racers. This event will precede an exciting weekend of MRA club racing.
Topping it all off, VIRginia International Raceway will host R2SL for a second season from August 10th through the 14th. Participants at the 2007 VIR event were begging R2SL to come back for ’08, and they will get their wish! The AMA Superbike Big Kahuna round will follow four days of riding the beautiful turns and elevation changes that make up VIR.
Racing 2 Save Lives is also pleased to continue offering free track instruction at all events, opening the door to sport bike riders of all levels to come experience the thrill of track riding. R2SL Vice President Ralph Forsythe remarks, “Over the years, we’ve refined our program, and 2008 promises to be the best yet! Our participants, sponsors, and volunteers have helped us donate significantly to children in need, and we’re looking forward to continuing that tradition. The culture of safety and ‘smart riding’ we promote also ensures that participants will have fun while doing a great thing for the world around them.”
