The Bermuda Motorcycle Racing Club kick off their Summer Series at the Rubis Southside Raceway in St David’s on Sunday.

The minibikes and scooters will again boast the largest classes this season, with eight to ten racers expected to battle it out over each day’s three heats.

Gates are open at 11.30am, with the first class hitting the grid for a 1pm start.

Admission into the spectator stands is free, while there is a $5 pit entry fee for general admission to anyone interested in getting even closer to the action. Pit admission will be free to seniors and children aged 12 and under.

The meet will be accompanied by music from Fire Marshall of Hollywood Sound. Drifter trikes will also allow the crowd to try out their own riding skills and will be available for rent starting at $10.

A club representative said: “We want to challenge young riders to bring their skills and bikes to our raceway and move away from a culture of public road racing.

“When bringing that riding culture to our track, that is where you really can determine who can ride and who can’t.

“With the right gear and training, these skills can be developed into something positive including the potential for an actual race career.”

The first race day is also welcoming drag racers to join in for their own set of heats.
