BMRC ready for grand finale

The Bermuda Motorcycle Racing Club will be hosting its final race day of the 2017 Circuit Racing Championship season tomorrow at the RUBiS Southside Raceway, St David's.

The club took a short break from racing in recent years, but restarted the race season in June. The BMRC has since seen a growing number of riders test their skills against each other.

“It has been very encouraging to see so many new and returning faces out this season,” Takara Dill, the BMRC president, said. “Everyone has worked tremendously hard, not only on their vehicles, but on reshaping the Club, and it has paid off. I am hopeful that 2018 will only see bigger and better things for BMRC.”

The Club has hosted numerous events this year alongside its Racing Circuit, like the first Hallowe'en Ride in October and its popular Wheelie Wars for a third successive year.

“We want to show the public that we are not just about racing,” Dill said. “There is so much more that the BMRC has to offer. We have an outstanding youth riding programme that hosts weekly Youth Riding Clinics on Saturday mornings and afternoons as well as public-friendly events that show the more artistic side of motorcycle riding.

“We want to encourage motorcycle enthusiasts to remember that we have a place for them here at the RUBiS Southside Raceway that will allow them to express themselves through all forms of motorcycle culture.”

Tomorrow, the regular race series will have racers square off within the largest two classes for this year, Scooter 70 class and Minibikes.

Drag races were held in lieu of the race series last Sunday with over ten members of the public and BMRC racers going head to head to identify the fastest bikes and riders.

The drag races will continue for Round Two between heats tomorrow. Members of the public are able to drop in on the day to participate for a fee of $10 per rider.

BMRC's Wheelie Wars III champion, Joshua Giraud, will be displaying his talent and passion for stunt riding at the event.

DJ Aztec will be present throughout the afternoon and explained that he plans to set an ambience and play for the people, “matching the high energy of the day's races with musical energy” to complement the event.

The BMRC are looking forward to a great event tomorrow
