Road Racing – How do I get Started?

  • Speak to riders in the class that you would like to compete in also speak to Officials who run meetings.
  • Join a Club, either one that is close to you (who may have a social side) or one that runs Road Race Events.
  • Go and get an Eye Test. You will require this for your Licence.
  • Decide on the Class you want to compete in and make sure your bike complies.
  • Find out about compulsory Novice Training to attain your Novice Licence. This information is available from the SACU Office (phone number 01506 858354)
  • You must attend a Novice Training Day to complete Part 1 (written test) and Part 2 (on circuit training) and have your Licence signed by a Training Officer before you can enter an Event. DO NOT enter any Events until you have both signatures on the back of your Licence.
  • Prepare your budget for racing
  • Contact the Clubs you intend to race with to organise Entry Forms.
  • Make sure that Entry Forms are completed IN FULL and returned to the relevant Club with the correct fee – 14 days prior to the event.
