Motorcycling Australia (MA) and the Australian Auto-sport Alliance (AASA) have announced a new partnership that will see motorcycle licences and events returning to MA in 2016.
The new agreement stems from AASA‰Ûªs decision to transition out of supplying permits for motorcycle events, and ends the period of AASA providing licences for motorcycle competitors.
AASA will focus attention on motor vehicle activities only, and motorcycle events held at circuits such as Winton Motor Raceway and Wakefield Park Raceway will now be sanctioned by Motorcycling Australia.
As part of this transition, AASA will move away from insuring and permitting motorcycle activity at recreational, club, state or national levels across Australia.
Chris Lewis-Williams, CEO of the Benalla Auto Club Group (which owns AASA) said the move will benefit motorcycle competitors all over Australia.
‰ÛÏThe Motorcycling Australia team consists of Australia‰Ûªs most prominent motorcycle racing experts, and from a commercial perspective it made absolute sense for them to take over sanctioning motorcycle events at the Benalla Auto Club venues, Winton and Wakefield Park,‰Û
