International Mini Road Racing Federation (IMRRF) Establishes Website

Long Beach, California - The I.M.R.R.F. today announced the launch of the International Mini Road Racing Federation website, which is comprised of some of the most active and established mini motorcycle road racing clubs from around the world from Canada, Bermuda and the United States. We are seeking established clubs from Asia, Europe and other parts of the world with a passion and desire to grow the sport that meet some basic criteria (see details below).

Mini bike racing organizations in some large countries like the United States are often faced with the challenge of distance unlike many of European and Asian clubs, making it difficult to have a national series and for the sport to grow in popularity. There are many factors why mini bike awareness isn't what it is in other parts of the world even with the help of the internet forums and Facebook groups: Information has still been greatly fragmented, regional and difficult to find useful information in an organized way.

The I.M.R.R.F site is an important step of the federation to help remedy this. The main goal of the site is for clubs to share valuable resources, technical information, have more convenient and robust marketplaces and be a valuable hub for those interested in the sport

The I.M.R.R.F hopes to make a positive impact in the sport of motorcycle racing at the important and often overlooked, grassroots level of motorcycle riding - mini racing, and to help clubs who have been supporting the sport and riders and doing things the right way; to have a bigger, more powerful voice.

Clubs currently part of the IMRRF network (actively participating and have stated are on board): 

AMRA (Alberta Mini Roadracing Association)

BMRC (Bermuda Motorcycle Racing Club)

M1GP (M1-Grand Prix Mini Road Racing Association)

MGKT (Middle Georgia Kart Track)

MMRA (Manitoba Minimoto Racing Association)

NJMGP (New Jersey Mini Gran Prix)

PCMRC (Pacific Coast Mini Roadracing Club)

PSRA (Prairie Sport Riders Association)

RMMM (Rocky Mountain Mini Moto)

SMRA (Saskatchewan Mini Racing Association)

Some requirements for organizations to be considered for the I.M.R.R.F:

·Must primarily race small displacement “mini” class bikes. The main classes raced: from pocket bikes to 150cc 4 stroke bikes.

·Must be an established sanctioning body which holds a regular full racing season (minimum of 5 race events annually).

·Must have existed as a racing association for a minimum of 1 full season (minimum of 5 events)

·Must have established rules, classes and posted results.

·Must have their own insurance (not just use the insurance of the track unless club owns the track).
