Back in October Reg went up to Thunderhill in Northern California to meet up with Chris Canterbury, a bike builder (Boxer Metal) who built a very modified BMW R90S as a replica of the one Reg won the first Superbike Championship on. Cafe Racer (now Naked Speed) called and asked if Reg would come up to take it on the track and put it through some paces, and they would be on hand to put it together for an episode of their show. Much to Chris' delight, Reg was game and headed up with his sidekick and mechanic, CLASS instructor Will Kenefick. The fun aired on Velocity (and it looks like the YouTube version is no longer online).
CLASS welcomes return sponsor Held USA back into the fold in 2015! We’ve been using Held Gloves for years - “I feel they are the best protection available” says Reg, “and I’m glad we have been able to again partner with Held for the upcoming year” . The Titan and Phantom gloves are superior track gloves and Held also makes a wide variety of gear and leathers, including quality gloves to fit every hand, desire and budget. Check them out at HeldUSA.com.
The CLASS 2015 Calendar is online and we are enrolling! We've put together super fun schedule which includes Sears Point, Laguna Seca, VIR and more. Early Bird discounts abound so don't wait, get your space reserved today!
New on the 2015 Calendar are two day classes. This means all riders are in it for both days, and the second day is an expansion of the first. Our one plus one days do a great job of this, and we plan to make two day classes even better! (A little more intense than a standard CLASS, but not nearly as intense as a D-Day CLASS, which is the ultimate Two Day CLASS).
D-Day is Back! Sept 24 & 25 we'll be back at it with just 12 students and as many instructors at Streets of Willow. This is the one where you get lots of track time, lots of intensive coaching - even two on one coaching, and video! This is the ultimate CLASS - don't miss it, sign up early and you save $100 Hope to see you there!

A fantastic end to a really great 2014 CLASS riding season. And having been able to top it off with both VIR and Laguna Seca is the best ever. Two great days at Laguna Seca this week and we were amazingly blessed again with maybe the best November weather ever. Thanks to each and every one of you who was
We are way more than just a track day, but we are also a great track day! With lots of classroom chalk talk by Reg and on track coaching by some of the best in the business, it's a great experience.

Reg is one of the top AMA Superbike Riders of all time...It's been more than 3 decades since the AMA formed the Superbike class. In those days, our own Reg Pridmore was at the front of the pack, winning the first 3 AMA Superbike Championships. The first and seemingly most remembered was on the BMW R90S. But did you know he next two were on big, brutishly powerful Kawasakis? Yeah, Reg is still riding and teaching every CLASS, but his name is forever inscribed in the lore of AMA Superbike racing. There's a great article on past Superbike Champs that begins: "When I first started brainstorming my list of the ten greatest champions in AMA Pro SuperBike history, I instantly knew that Reg Pridmore was going to be included… " read more...
