Glitz, glamour, speed, noise, thrills and occasionally
spills... road racing has it all!
most high profile of all the motorcycle sports in the UK,
Road Racing, on closed tarmac surfaces dominates the public
face of our sport. TV coverage features not only UK Championships
but also MotoGP and World Superbikes, fuelling sales of road
bikes and creating a multi million pound worldwide market.
In the UK riders can compete at Club level from as young
as 11 years of age up to 125cc Production Automatic Scooters.
Once they get to 12 they are allowed to progress onto the
popular Production 125 machines that dominate teenage racing
through the Aprilia Superteen series. At 13, with the appropriate
level of experience, youngsters can progress onto 125cc racing
machines and compete at National level. From here it is but
a short step to European racing and then Grand Prix!
in the UK, club racing takes place at permanent tarmac circuits
across the UK every weekend between March and November. Most
clubs run classes for all types of bike, from 125 to 1000cc
