HAWAYA RACING PRODUCTS 2016 OUTLOOK
OUT LOOK FOR THIS YEAR:
The year 2016 will be an interesting year for Hawaya Racing. As a company, HRP will be expanding in several areas, the first of which will be the continued advancement in manufacturing of its racing products and components. Over the past year, we have begun systematically producing our products in house with the addition of our Haas Automation vertical CNC machining center. This, along with our other machines, allows us to do 90% of all of our machining in house at the present time. This gives us unprecedented quality control, inventory control, and the ability to control cost of our products. Steve has continued training on the Haas which has expedited us getting new products to market. Our plan by the end of this year is to purchase our second Haas machining center which will do all of our turning work. This additional machining center will make HRP virtually 100% self-sufficient.
The old Bridgeport CNC machine is in the process of being converted into a Clutch Dyno at the present time. This will allow us to begin extensive testing of new clutch components and combinations.
2016 NITRO BIKE SCHOOL:
"After 5 great years of the current Nitro Bike School, taking a one year breather, I am now ready to get the school back up and running. I have made up a plan for the re-structuring of the school from its old curriculum to a new, more personal and specialized format, says Johnny.
We are starting assembly now on a new 2016 Pro Fuel bike that will be for sale as soon as it is complete. Until that time, it will be for lease as a school bike with the option to buy it at the school if so desired. The new Nitro Bike School format gives us the ability to focus on whatever the rider, crew chief or crew wishes to accomplish. If the rider wants just seat time or the crew chief and team want to focus on Racepak data collection and interpretation, no problem. Maximum riders (teams) will be held to two. This will allow Steve to take one team and Johnny to take the other. We can do injected bike teams as well as the carbureted teams, which was not an option in the previous school format. We will be able to basically hold the school at any time which is different from previous schools as well. All classes will be held at Rockingham Dragway as before.
Contact us at HRP for details.
HRP 2016 RACE SCHEDULE:
For this racing season, Johnny Vickers will run a limited schedule of events. "The plan for me is the same as last year. The focus is to test new products for production on the Terminater bike at select events, where the track and weather conditions will be at a premium. My personal goal is to still be the first Pro Fuel in the 6’s. The Gen-4 Derringer engine upgrade now proven, allowed me to spend this past off season designing and building some new ideas which I plan to start testing at my first event in Virginia.
I have on my schedule to run two NHRA events, April 29-30 in Virginia and October 28-29-30 in Rockingham NC. Three Man Cup events, June 11-12 in Rockingham, September 17-18 again in Rockingham and November 11-12-13 in Valdosta Ga. On the AMRA side, I will run the Jim McClure finals at Rockingham on October 15-16.
In addition to this, I will be tuning for Janette Thornley for the 2016 NHRA races as she pursues NHRA Pro Fuel Championship number 2."
