2015 WMRC DATES

This is still in the early stages but I wanted to share with everyone what we have planned for 2015. With the absence of the WCSS the WMRC will now be hosting tracks days and rider training at Mission Raceways.
Our first order of business will be getting our New Racer Course up and running, but we also plan on announcing our own rider training program geared towards the street rider looking to improve their skills.


Wmrc race rounds 1 & 2: Saturday May 2nd & Sunday May 3rd
Wmrc race rounds 3 & 4: Sunday May 17th & Monday May 18th
Wmrc race round 5: Monday August 3rd
Wmrc round 6: Sunday September 20th


Track day & school: Friday May 1st
Track day Saturday May 16th
Track day & school: Friday July 17th
Track day Tuesday, August 4th
Track day: Saturday, September 19th

There are many details still to be finalized but we are racing towards getting all of this ready ASAP!
It's a very ambitious project and a lot of work but with everyone's support I know we can be successful.
I hope to see you all out with us this year!

We will be at the Vancouver Bike show from Friday, January 23rd to Sunday, January 25th so please stop by say hi.. and show us your support!

Sure, photographers are welcome. If you intend on going on the track you will have to check in with us first of course to go over rules and get a vest.

I'm afraid we do not do rentals, you have to bring your own bike

here's a message from our #1 club racer Spero Benias.

One month until the first WMRC Trackday, Race School & Races of 2015!!

Everyone is super excited for what is gearing up to be a stellar season with new WMRC racers who got licensed last year and signed up to take the race school this year, some racers on new bikes and the WMRC holding it's own trackdays and race schools.

For those people attending a trackday at Mission for the first time here's some info, all of which is available on Home :

- Get to the track early! Gates open at 6:57am sharp! (See what I did there? Lol!) By getting there early you'll have plenty of time to get through Registration, Tech Inspection and get settled at your pit before the mandatory Rider's Meeting.

- If you are riding to the track check your bike over before heading out.

- If you have the option of transporting your bike, which is recommended, tape it up and check it over before loading it.

What to tape up (or remove):
- Headlights, turn signals, brake lights, mirrors, passenger pegs to folded up position, license plate & speedometer (only the speedometer).


What to check on your bike:

- Cold tire pressures - Generally tires are set to lower pressures to maximize grip for the track. If riding to the track it's good to know what the cold pressures are so you know how much pressure to remove at the track.

- Firm brake lever/pedal & adequate brake pad thickness.

- Chain slack - see owner's manual, better a little loose than a little tight. Master link on chain is secure - good idea to put a dab of paint or nail polish on it so Tech Inspection can find it quickly.

- All nuts, bolts & fasteners are tight and secure.

- No leaks of any kind.

- No sharp edges or bolts allowed.

- Throttle snaps shut upon release at all handlebar positions. No throttle aids of any kind allowed.

- Hand clearance to bodywork at full left and right handlebar lock.

- Suspension operates smoothly and no oil leaks.

- Any cameras mounted securely preferably with a secondary tether made up of safety wire or zip ties.


Riding gear:
- One or two piece riding suit with hard armour (textile is ok but leather is recommended).
- Hard shell back protector.
- Snell or ECE approved helmet.
- Full gauntlet style motorcycle gloves.
- Racing style motorcycle boots.


* Last but not least, riders should have a proper mindset - leave the ego at home and remember it's a day to have fun with friends in the best sport on the planet!

If you have any questions, comments or concerns feel free to ask anyone at the track, we are all there to help each other out.

See you all at the track!!

*** Don't forget there is a WMRC Hay Bale Party at the track on April 12th starting at 10:00am and track set up on April 30th starting at 6:00pm.
