North East Motorcycle Racing Club est. 1962
Where Are NEMCRC Based?
NEMCRC are based at the Tynemouth and District Motor Club, Billy Mill Lane, North Shields.
Club night/Club meetings take place on selected Thursday evenings from 8.30 pm. (check the website and social networks for dates)
What do NEMCRC do?
NEMCRC are affiliated to the ACU, (Auto Cycle Union) and organise Road Race Meetings throughout the season under ACU directions and permits.
We also train Marshals, Technical Staff and are licensed by the ACU to carry out initial rider training prior to the ACU granting a competition licence. This is carried out in house with ACU qualified instructors
Where do NEMCRC Hold Motorcycle Race Meetings?
We consistently hold race meetings at Croft near Darlington and East Fortune in the Scottish Borders every season. We have also held meetings at Cadwell Park and Knock Hill in the past.
Our meetings are held over the Saturday and Sunday with Technical Inspections and Signing On carried out on the Friday night.
Who Can Join and Race?
Age restrictions for competing are laid down in the ACU rule book. From the age of 12 with parental agreement you can ride in 125cc production classes. At 18 years of age there are no restrictions to what can be ridden but under 18 years must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. For riders over 70 years of age a medical must be obtained every year.
What if I Don’t Want to Compete?
No problem there are numerous benefits to social membership of the club and any number of tasks to be carried out by volunteers and enthusiasts to help the club and riders.
You don’t have to volunteer but if you would like to give hands on assistance you can help with anything from marshalling track side, technical officials (known as scrutineers), to the pit lane assembly area. As experience grows the possibility of becoming a Chief Marshall or Chief Technical Officer through to Assistant Deputy and ultimately Clerk of the Course, who has responsibility for overall control of the meeting.
There are also many other opportunities to help the club away from the track, you might care to join the club as a social member just to keep up to speed with the clubs activities or to volunteer with the day to day running and admin etc.
Come along to a motorcycle race meeting and see how it all works.
