Over his racing career, Jason accumulated over 20 championships and was one of the top racers in America. He is the expert commentator for MotoAmerica tv and web shows and he co-hosts Greg's Garage Podcast. He is also the premiere instructor in America and mentors racers around the world. In July 2019, I attended his classroom instruction at a MotoVixens event and got to hangout with him to chat. His crew helped me shave 10 seconds off my time at The Ridge.
When I was planning my 2019 schedule, I highlighted the July 4th weekend at The Ridge two day event with MotoVixens where we were going to get to hangout with Jason Pridmore. I attended his classroom training riding my Yamaha R3 spent every hour on the track, then in the classroom with Jason and his JP43 crew. After the two day event, I interviewed Jason where we talked about his motorcycle instructing background that started at the age of 16 with his dad's school in the 80's working with Honda, then the Star motorcycle school he did with Suzuki, and eventually starting his current JP43 training school. We talked about his history training the US Armed Forces, how he structures his classroom trainings, his one-on-one training day with one of the NorthWest stars (Jeremy Coffey), how he connected with The Ridge and MotoVixens, and his desire to help get sport back back to where it used to be.
Jason Pridmore Interview 17:19 minutes
We went to The Ridge Motorsports Park in Shelton WA to ride with MotoVixens in June and July 2019. The second visit we attended JP43 training with Jason Pridmore and his team. I am a 56 year old guy that is pretty slow, but willing to show this comparison for visitors to see the initial difference with experience and some training. The top left view contains one lap with the rear mounted camera, and the top right contains one lap with a front mounted camera.
