BMRC look to make season family-friendly

“Bringing family together through sport" is the motto for the upcoming Bermuda Motorcycle Racing Club (BMRC) season.

The BMRC committee have dedicated the season, which is set to start next month, to improving the whole structure of the organisation from the grassroots up.

“Our goal is to rebuild the sport from the ground up, more specifically the youth programme up,” said BMRC president Cyril Whitter. “In December of last year we soft-launched a youth development riding school for children aged four years and up on a biweekly basis at the Bermuda Motor Sports Park.

“The free riding school will be launched to the public in February.

“The BMRC has a host of new initiatives aimed towards creating a family atmosphere, building character through sport and reducing the cost of entry. Needless to say we are overly enthused about the upcoming season and implementing our new programmes.”

The season will be split into two different styles of riding, endurance racing and circuit racing, with the former kicking off the season on February 23 at the Bermuda Motor Sports Park.

The endurance racing season will feature three races and see riders compete on the course for a two-hour period, before tackling the more conventional circuit racing.

Whitter is anxious to see how competitors take on the gruelling two-hour event in a test of mental strength and endurance.

“Not only will this test the fitness of the riders taking part but also the quality of the machinery they will be using to compete. And if you need extra cash to help with the upkeep of your bike, the series will have a cash purse for the top three teams.”

The Bermuda Motorcyle Racing Club will begin their new season next month.
