8/15/2015 to 8/16/2015     Manchester Medley HPRA Race Weekend Update
Location: North Manchester, Indiana, USA

Join us for the 10th annual Northern Indiana HPRA race weekend. Races on both days will be held on a wide .35-mile 2-lane paved drive around the local high school. Smooth pavement and fairly wide corners make this a good course for all HPRA classes (although challenging for streamliners). Below is the tentative schedule of events.

HPRA classes and rules apply (see, helmets & mirrors mandatory). Regular entry fee is $10/day or $15 for both days; special fee for first-time HPRA racers is $1/day! Prize money given for first/second/third place winners in each class (Stock, Streetliner, Streamliner, Junior, Women, Trike, and Tandem).
