Motorcycle and Gear Requirements
Your personal safety gear and motorcycle must be in safe operating condition and pass a quick technical inspection. If, for any reason, you fail the technical inspection the first time, you may work on your bike to remedy the problem and ask for another inspection when you’re ready. While we make every effort to be reasonable, we will not allow an unsafe bike or unprotected rider onto the track, nor will we refund your reservation fee if you can’t pass inspection.
The following must be taped or removed:
- Brake light(s)
- Turn signals
- License plate must be removed.
- Speedometer display must be obscured with the use of tape.
We recommend the head light, brake lights and tail lights are unplugged or fuses removed (i.e. they must not work). If you are unable to disconnect these lights, they must be THOROUGHLY taped over.
A motorcycle in good condition
No fluid leaks or obvious mechanical damage of any kind. The motorcycle must be in roadworthy condition and must be operating correctly. It must have a functioning kill switch and fully operational front AND rear brakes.
GoPros (or similar cameras) must be tethered
All GoPros (or similar cameras) that are mounted on a motorcycle must have a tether from the camera case to a point on the motorcycle.
No K&N spin on style oil filters
The risk of a dangerous failure with these filters is too great at this time to allow their use. If your motorcycle is using one of these filters you will not pass the required tech inspection.
Tires in good, safe condition
Only DOT pavement, street or road racing tires allowed (no dirt bike knobbies, for example). Tires must be in good condition with plenty of tread.
No machine at a WMRC event may exceed 88 dB at any time.
Many race tracks have a decibel level requirement that you must abide by, sadly Mission Raceway Park is no different.
WMRC does not check noise levels during technical inspection. IF track officials flag you for excessive noise and you are unable to bring your machine into compliance, your day will be forfeit with no credit.
Every effort will be taken to try and ensure that you can remain riding but you must be aware certain motorcycles with aftermarket exhaust can have difficulties with the sound limit.
If you think you may be too loud, many manufacturers offer dB reducing plug or baffles and 3rd party options may be available. Consider mounting a stock muffler or exhaust system or creating your own custom baffle.
An undamaged full-faced helmet with visor, no older than 5 years from date of manufacture and Snell M2015, Snell M2020, ECE 22-05 or FIMGP certified.
At Technical Inspection your helmet will be inspected for damage, age and certification. Helmets not meeting these requirements will not be permitted to be used.
Helmet mounted GoPros (or similar helmet mounted cameras) are NOT ALLOWED.
Full one piece leathers are recommended.
Two-piece suits and full textile armored riding suits are accepted.
Two-piece suits MUST have the jacket secured to the pants using a full-circumference zipper around the waist.
Only full leathers will be accepted for race schools.
Gauntlet-style leather riding or racing gloves with full wrist coverage.
Leather riding or racing boots that cover the ankles.
A separate CE level 2 back protector that extends from the shoulders to the tailbone must be worn.
Soft back pads sewn into suits DO NOT meet this requirement.
