- I want to start racing - what do I need to know?
To race you need a bike eligible to enter one of the classes for your age, protective gear, club membership and an MA licence.
- How do I get a licence?
Junior racers (4-U16yrs) must complete the Motorcycling Australia “Kick Start” Junior Rider Training program to obtain a Log Book and Race License from Motorcycling NSW before racing at our Club.
Senior racers need to undertake a “Supplement to Starting out in Motorcycle Sport” theory test and a riding test if they do not hold a motorcycle road licence. More information can be found on the MNSW website.
- What do I do if I forget my licence or log book on race day?
You need to present your MA licence at Signon to be able to race and your Logbook if you are a junior.
If you have a licence / logbook and have simply left them at home you can sign a Licence / Logbook Declaration Form (Fee $45.00). These forms are sent in to MNSW with the fee and are reconciled to your licence details – you will be fined/ have your licence suspended if you have provided misleading information.
If you don’t have a licence you may be able to get a one day licence - but they cost $100 and you still need to have your log book if you are a junior or, if you are a Senior, have held a licence within 2 years / prove you have passed the theory test .
- Which disciplines do we offer
DIRT TRACK (DT) is an exciting discipline for riders who want to back it into corners and power slide their way out on a flat track made of compacted granite. All you need to get started is a motocross bike with dirt track tyres and your protective riding gear.
MOTOCROSS (MX) is the exciting art of railing berms, slamming whoops, carving up ruts and flying high over jumps. It this is your idea of fun, then Motocross is the dirt bike sport for you. Our 1.66km FIM standard track incorporates natural terrain and man made obstacles that produce fast, close and exciting racing. MX is one of the most physically demanding sports, that tests both riders and machines to their limits.
