Start racing 2024....

Perhaps you’ve had your fill of trackdays and are looking for a new challenge. Maybe you’ve raced in the past or race motocross and fancy trying track racing. Whatever your reason, BEMSEE is here to help.

Everyone who’s new to racing must take the written ACU CTC (competency to compete) course and since 2014, all riders are required to undertake an on-track assessment.

The list of other operators running CTC-BRA Courses is here on the ACU website




There is also an alternative course with MSVT that is run and administered by Bemsee....





Here’s what’s involved...

1) To obtain a race licence, you will need to attend a presentation known as the ACU-CTC course. The ACU is our sport’s governing body and CTC stands for Competitor Training Course. We now run our CTC Courses via Zoom Presentation, you will be tutored on various aspects of racing, such as flags, safety, etc. At the end of the sessions you will be sent a multiple choice paper, which, as long as you have been paying attention to the tutor, you should pass easily.

2) To race with BMCRC (or any Club these days), you will need to complete an on-track course, the BRA (Basic Rider Assessment) which will cover a wide range of practical exercises that will introduce you to aspects of on-track race craft. This will assess your competency to ride and give you the chance to experience a race-start with all that goes with it – attending the assembly area – coming onto the grid – the warm-up lap – the lights, the start. This course is now a requirement for new Race Licence applicants.

A Final Note of guidance: The most common error on New Licence applications: If you've got a DVLA "A" Road-going Licence then you can start as an Intermediate Novice on a big bike. You will also need to upload a copy of your DVLA Licence on the ACU site - Only DVLA "A" Licence holders can ride 750's and 1000's. The standard Novice Licence grade (if you are not licenced to ride on the road) means you can only race a bike up to 600cc four-stroke or 650cc twin.
