It was 1981 and my motorcycling friends said, "Let's go to Bryar and catch some AAMRR racing!" And my life was forever changed! Motorcycle road racing was scintillating and drew me in like nothing I'd seen before. The speed and skill riders demonstrated on that old Bryar road course blew me away and the hook was set. After much discussion with some dear friends, who thought I might have some talent, PTC Racing was born.
Well, it took (more than) a few years but, in 1994 my dream of racing became reality. Bryar Motorsport Park had become New Hampshire International Speedway and the AAMRR organization had been replaced with the Loudon Road Race Series. Lots of podium finishes and more than our share of wins aboard Yamaha's wonderful FZR400 and the Suzuki SV650 earned us Expert LRRS Lightweight Championships in 1998 and 2002. I also became an Instructor/Coach with the Penguin Racing School. Retirement (HAH!) followed after the 2003 season.
Well, I've been out of retirement since 2012, back on a Suzuki SV650 and running up front again! I've returned to coaching and teaching with the prestigious Penguin School too! I Just couldn't stay away from the fun, the competition, and that very special camaraderie that is road racing with the LRRS. We'll use this space to promote our fantastic sponsors and to share a few stories. Come along for the ride....

More BIG NEWS!!! Glaveco Leathers will be our racing suit sponsor for the 2019 season!
Glaveco is a relatively new name on the block. But, don't let that fool you. Glaveco leathers have solid features, beautiful custom designs, and outstanding customer service. I expect we'll be hearing many more great things from Joe and Anna in the future. Thank you!
BIG NEWS!!! We are thrilled to announce a new contributing sponsor for 2019.
FORMA BOOTS USA
Forma Boots have been our boot choice for a couple years now and we are VERY pleased to be partnering with Forma for the 2019 season. We have found them to have superior fit and protection compared to other brands we've tried in the past. PTC Racing is excited to begin this relationship and we hope to continue for a long time to come. Welcome aboard!
BIG THANKS to our Returning Partners for 2019
Scott and his crew have a fantastic reputation for sales and service in the motorcycle and snow machine industry. I highly recommend them if you're looking for a new ride (they have both new and used bikes and sleds) or if you need service on your machine. Souhegan Valley will be supplying motor work, parts and their expert advice to PTC Racing. We're expecting great things this year! Welcome back Souhegan Valley!
We are thrilled to announce our continuing partnership with Peter Kates and COMPUTRACK BOSTONfor 2019. They are the premier provider of all things chassis and suspension for motorcycles. Pete has been keeping my machines straight and making them handle perfectly since the wheel was invented. He can definitely make your bike handle better and ride smoother.
It is with much delight that we will continue our partnership with WOODCRAFT TECHNOLOGIES. PTC Racing has been involved with Woodcraft and Eric Wood since 1999. We've raced and seriously tested (yes, crashed!) almost everything they sell. Woodcraft truly make the best designed best built products in the industry.
2019 also brings the return of ARMOUR BODIES as a continuing sponsor. We've crash tested our share of bodywork. And Armour is the toughest stuff yet! It's extremely stylish in design and easy to install too. This will be our 6th year partnered with Armour and we couldn't be happier.
