GETTING STARTED IN CIRCUIT MOTORCYCLE RACING
March 15, 2020

Circuit Motorcycle racing is broken down into various classes, and are raced at the various circuits around South Africa.

 

  • 1000cc
  • 600cc
  • 300cc
  • 250cc
  • 150cc
  • Super Moto
  • NSF100
  • Mini Moto

All new competitors are required to start at entry-level club classes. The Short Circuit series is the perfect series to start in and offers many different junior classes such as the following:

  • Mini Moto
  • NSF100
  • 250cc
  • 150cc

These are the best classes to learn and grow. The NSF 100 class is from the ages of 7-14 years old. The academy provides the following:

  • State of the art Honda NSF100 Race bikes as used in similar programs around the world
  • Rider training for beginners on their custom made HONDA NSF100 DYNO
  • Training and motivational sessions from some of the leading racers in the country

The NSF100 class is the only class that allows you to rent the motorcycles for a racing season. Contact MSA to learn more about starting out in this class.


Before you start, go to some race meetings and chat with some of the competitors in the paddock. Most will be happy to talk about their sport and this will help you to decide which type of racing you would like to become more involved in.
 
Please remember that all competitors require their own motorcycle and budget, to compete, the association chairman/representative from the various categories can assist you in finding a suitable motorcycle to purchase should you not have one.  The key point is that whatever motorcycle you buy must comply with both General Competition Rules and the club championship Supplementary Regulations. A scrutineer will check your motorcycle on-event for compliance and if it doesn’t comply, you won’t be allowed to compete.


Before purchasing your MSA licence, you would need to write an exam on the Circuit Racing SSR’s which is found in the GCR handbook. You may contact the circuit sporting coordinator to assist you with setting up the exam.
