Don't miss out on the fun. Become a racing member, get your bike ready and get some seat time - the others are putting in the work as we speak. New and old faces will be on the grid this year and with the Club bouncing back from a tough run, the more riders we have the bigger it gets for everyone. 

This year we've lowered all racing fees to make it easier for riders to do what they love best - race. We also understand that it takes a lot of money and work to maintain a racing bike, so we've revamped the prize structure and have recognition programs lined up to make it worth your time. 

Join us for the 2017 Racing Season and bring your friends that have been talking about coming back to the track. Better days are ahead for the BMRC and we can't do it without you.

The First Annual Bermuda Motorsports Expo: FIVE Reasons to Come

This Sunday on January 29th, the First Annual Bermuda Motorsports Expo will take place at the RUBiS Southside Raceway. The event is the first of its kind and will showcase the four major motorsports on the island: motorcycle racing, motocross, karting, and power boats.

For the Bermuda Motorcycle Racing Club, here are FIVE reasons to stop by and see us:

Get on the track

Dust your bike down and get on the track with former and new riders, bike enthusiasts and the new kids on the block. This is the first time the event is happening so we are going with the flow and encouraging all members, friends and the community to come out and get involved with the fun rides and activities that we are taking part in.

Early registration for riding clinics

Do you have a youngster in the family or the neighbourhood who has a bunch of energy and would love to ride? If so, we are doing an early registration for the Spring riding clinics. We have a variety of classes that any child (from the age of 5) or young adult can sign up for. Come down and find out more. 

Find out about the racing season

To be honest - we have not had a Championship Season that has made noise in a while. This year, we are working hard to change that. With fewer race classes, lower riding fees and sponsors biting to help us beef things up, we have a lively racing season building. Come down and chat with other people racing, aspiring racers and call out riders who have been chatting for years but haven't brought their bikes to the grid. To really put the Club on the map, it is simple - we need riders. Let's do this!


Give your insight on how to grow the club

It may take a village to raise a child but it needs an army of engaged people to get the BMRC to where it should be. The Committee is at best a group who represent the needs of members and makes sure that the Club continues to grow. We all have ideas but if they are not voiced, nothing happens. No holds barred - how can we be better?


Find out how you can get involved

We are going places this year. With talks of trips overseas over the next 12 - 18 months, beefed up race classes, community programs, school tours and events that you would be proud of, there are several ways that you can play a part. We need help - but don't expect us to be a nag, any efforts would be much appreciated. 

Ensuring Equal Opportunities for All Children to Live Their Dreams with the Coalition for the Protection of Children

In the Fall of 2016, the Bermuda Motorcycle Racing Club and the Coalition for the Protection of Children began a partnership to assist Bermuda's most vulnerable children in entering into a sporting community in a way that would otherwise be impossible. Five boys aged 8 through 13 have already benefited from the union with one student about to enter into his second term advancing through the BMRC Youth Riding Clinic. As a natural on the track, he is already on a path to greatness.

The BMRC was honored to present the Coalition with three gift certificates for their annual "Toys for Tots" Christmas party this year which provides disadvantaged families with special gifts for children during a time when most are struggling financially. The charity's young recipients attended the Fall Riding Clinic's Open House just before Christmas and received a 20-minute introductory session with our head coach and ex-pro racer, Antoine Richards.

Founder and Chair of the charity, Sheelagh Cooper, has expressed her appreciation for such a collaborative effort towards the island's youth and believes the introduction to the sport to be "a little boy's dream." Igniting a passion for the sport and thrill of motorcycle racing while also providing a safe and welcoming community for Bermuda's youth are just a few of the early perks of this special partnership.

Revving Up the 2016 Santa Clause Parade

The 2016 Santa Clause Parade featured the talent and style of Bermuda's top motorcycle riders with the BMRC joining forces to deliver some attention-grabbing routines and stunts to the festive crowd of spectators. This was the first time the BMRC participated in the annual event hosted by Marketplace which included an array of 25 different floats. The event, which helps to ring in the Christmas season, is scheduled to coincide with the lighting of the Christmas tree at City Hall and the opening of late night shopping in the city of Hamilton, typically landing on the last weekend in November.

Representing the Club and showing off their talent were our youth riders Nathaniel Binega-Northcott, Keimari Burchall, and Aiden Lopes, alongside veterans CJ Richardson and Sandy Benevides. The team showcased their breathtaking dime circles in front of the flag poles on Front Street, dragged their knees while encircling the bird cage in front of masses of amazed children, and energized the crowd with their own take on the worldwide mannequin challenge.

Taking a new spin on the traditional Christmas tree, the BMRC's float drew upon what we know best to bring our own vision of Christmas to life. A cheerful tire tree decked out with glittering helmets, motorcycles, and trophies stood proud with it's one of a kind star, hand-crafted from two glistening sprockets. Every little boy (and girl) had a glimpse into what Christmas morning - BMRC style - looks like with the dream gift of a PitsterPro motorcycle underneath the Christmas tree.

The positive energy and enthusiasm towards the BMRC along the entire parade route are all that's needed to ensure our return again next year. The only difference in our future appearance will be to give the crowd more of what they were cheering for - "bigger" and "faster"!

The Bermuda Motorcycle Racing Club (BMRC) is proud to announce the appointment of a new and dynamic executive committee for the 2016-2017 season.

The Club has just nominated its first female President, Takara Dill. Takara has been an active committee member for the past 2 years and has been instrumental in managing the administration needs during the course of her involvement with the Club. As the Librarian at Saltus Grammar School, Takara brings with her a high level of expertise and passion for the sport as well as wisdom in engaging young riders who are interested in the motorcycle racing. She is an invaluable asset to the Club and we are thrilled to see it flourish under her management.

The BMRC has also welcomed an enthusiastic group of new and returning committee members. In addition to BMRC President Takara Dill, the executive committee includes Antoine Richards as Vice-President and Kristin Divine as Secretary. Newly appointed subcommittee members include CJ Richardson as Clerk of the Course, Ephraim Divine as Public Relations Manager, and Marcus Pimentel as Lead Tech Inspector. The team is eager to begin a transformative overhaul of the Club with the goal of creating a far-reaching and inclusive community for sport fanatics of all ages. We are hoping to create an exciting family-oriented experience and incorporate new partnerships to build onto an already phenomenal Club.

The BMRC is a Bermuda based national motorcycle racing series, founded in the early 1990s by David Jones, Sr. The club is dedicated to the development of motorcycle racing in Bermuda by providing a productive and safe environment for the motor sport within the community. Structured riding lessons are offered throughout the year to teach the basics of motorcycle riding, racing, and fundamentals of road safety while also promoting sportsmanship and respect for themselves and others. Students as young as 4 have gained invaluable skill and knowledge within the Youth Riding Clinic 101 before advancing onto higher level programs. The club seeks to promote our supportive community and enrich the love of the sport.

All BMRC national race events take place at the RUBiS South Side Raceway, St. David’s (directly across from Clearwater Beach). The official Circuit Racing Championship runs every other Sunday with this year’s season running from May through October. All race dates can be found in the Race Calendar section of the BMRC website.
