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.
