FAQ

Everything you need to go to join our track events.

What is a MA Licence?

To ride at events hosted by Sporties, you will need a Motorcycling Australia (MA) licence

Coaching and Track Days

  • For coaching and track days you will need either a recreational licence or a competition licence.
  • Licences can be purchased on Ridernet when entering. You can buy an annual licence or a single event license through Ridernet.

Race days

  • On race days you will need a one event competition licence or a full competition licence. A recreational licence is not sufficient.
  • Licences can be purchased on Ridernet when entering.

Note – if you are doing all three or four days (coaching, track and race) then it may be more cost effective in the long run to obtain an annual competition licence from MA.

How do I apply for a race licence?

Once you have joined an affiliated club like ours you can apply for a race licence through MQLD.
You will need to have a road bike license or have done a track/coaching day and filled out a simple questionnaire.

How do I know you received my entry?

Once your payment has cleared you will receive a confirmation email from the entry system which also verifies all your information for the event.

Tyre changing facilities are available at the track on track days and race days. We cannot guarantee tyre changing facilities are available on coaching days.
