Motorcycles must be in a roadworthy / trackworthy condition. Slick or racing tyres are allowed provided track conditions are suitable.

The following will be items scrutinized prior to any motorcycle being granted access to the racetrack.

  • All treaded tyres must be worn no more 2mm above the minimum tread-depth indicators at the beginning of the day (if subsequent inspection during the day shows the tyre to be on or below the tread-depth indicator, access to the track may be denied).
  • Slick tyres can be used on dry a track only. Access may be denied if the track is deemed unsuitable for slick tyres.
  • Brake pads must be deemed to have suitable material to complete a day at the racetrack.
  • Brake disc rotors must be minimum thickness as recommend by the manufacturer (this measurement is stamped on the side of the disc rotor).
  • Brake lines must be secured correctly and must not leak or weep fluid.
  • Front & rear brakes must operate correctly upon testing.
  • Fork seals must not show any signs of leaking or weeping fluid.
  • There must be no evidence of oil leaks or weeps of any kind.
  • Fairings must be secured correctly (no duct tape allowed!)
  • Any damage to fairings must not have sharp or jagged edges, or in any way be deemed a potential threat to any rider.
  • Footpegs and mounting brackets must be secured and aligned correctly.
  • Exhausts must be secured at all provided mounting points.
  • Levers or pedals that are bent and deemed difficult to operate must be repaired or replaced.
  • Throttles must snap back to the off position when released.
  • There must be no evidence of fuel leaks of any kind.
  • Handlebars must be secured and show no evidence of being able to move or be bent from the original shape the manufacturer intended
