Who is EMRA?

EMRA, or the Eastern Motor Racing Association, boasts a rich history spanning over five decades of hosting timed events. Committed to fostering a competitive, safe, and family-friendly environment, EMRA operates as a non-profit organization, driven by its dedicated members. Our primary aim is to offer enthusiasts opportunities in Time Attack, Racing, and Driver Education, all while optimizing track time and minimizing costs.

The Clubs



EMRA streamlines the initiation into racing through its HPDE (High Performance Driver Education) program. We commence with an in-depth classroom session focused on Driver Education, followed by hands-on instruction in your personal vehicle. With an EMRA instructor by your side, providing immediate feedback, you’ll refine your driving line and enhance your performance in real-time.

Teamed up with fellow students and novice drivers, you’ll have the flexibility to explore your vehicle’s capabilities within a secure and sanctioned environment.

Upon successful completion of the program, you’ll have the opportunity to obtain your EMRA Time Trial License.

the next step beyond HPDE

North East Time Attack

EMRA Time Trials provide a safe and controlled environment for motorsport enthusiasts to push their cars to the limit. These events are held on full-sized race tracks throughout the Northeast region of the United States, and occur throughout the season. Participants compete against each other and the clock, aiming to achieve the fastest time of the day. At the end of each event, results are compiled and broken down by vehicle class.

Door to door

EMRA Competition Racing

EMRA’s wheel to wheel racing series is designed to deliver close, competitive racing for cars of all makes and models. Our goal is to deliver exciting races in a way that makes racing less work and more fun. EMRA’s flexible classing system allows for cars of all types to compete on a level field. Cars built for other race series are all welcome to run with EMRA!
