To race motorcycles/sidecars on short circuits in Ireland there are several things you need to do before you can compete.
Firstly you need a licence to race. This can be obtained by filling out the race licence application form issued by Motorcycling Ireland (MCI) and submitting it with the appropriate fee and a passport photo. This must be done every year and must be stamped and signed by your club. The ISAM club will do this for you once you have paid your annual membership fee. Part of the licence application also requires you to attend both a Flag Seminar and a Anti-Doping Seminar. Again the ISAM club will facilitate this and hold several seminars at the start of the year before the race season begins. You can also do these online, for more information visit the Motorcycling Ireland website at www.motorcycling-Ireland.com
If it is your first time applying for a race licence you must also attend the Newcomers Training Assessment Day which is held in early March each year at Mondello Park. An entry form for this training day must also be submitted prior to attending. This training day involves some classroom lessons on your bikes safety and track and racing eductiation as well as an assessment of your riding on track. All these forms are available on this site or from the ISAM club or any other of the affilliated clubs.
You must also obtain a racing number for your machine. This can be done by contacting Mr Ivan Davidson on 004428 91815918.
You will also need a transponder for racing, the transponder is the device you attach to your machine, this works with the timing device and tracks your lap time and race position, these can be rented at the track for €20 per meeting or can be bought new from MyLaps.com
