The Sprint Section of the VMCC have announced their 2013 calendar and invite entries to their Thorney Island and Eelmoor events, so if you’re looking to run that Nostalgia Drag Bike / vintage road bike / scooter / modern road rocket / classic, maybe this is your chance.
You don’t have to have done Sprinting before, and the events are open to bikes of all ages, and riders from the age 11 (restrictions apply to the youngsters!).
The events run under ACU permits which means: Paramedics, licensed Tech Inspectors (for machine and clothing), Clerk of the Course, licensed time keepers, track inspection and ACU insurance.
There’s a special “First Time Rider” offer that can save you some pennies for those wishing to try the sport – see website
Although an ACU competition licence is reqd, this can be bought for the day along with a day’s membership to the VMCC.
So, who are the Sprint Section Committee? We are a group of VMCC Members with a passion for Sprinting. We organise, run and some of us ride at VMCC Sprint Section Competitions. We are all enthusiasts who do this for the love of the Sport. We welcome fellow motorcyclists who wish to pitch their skills against the clock.
