MA LICENCE @ CHAMPIONS
At the following tracks, Broadford Raceway, Mallala Raceway and Barbagallo Raceway, Champions Ride Days runs the event under a Motorcycling Australia (MA) permit.
As of March 1st, 2013 the MA Recreational Day Licence will increase to $30.00. MA have endeavoured to keep the licence fee to a minimum for many years, and after 5 years have now increased the fee.
So if you have a current licence, you only pay for the track day.
If you dont, you pay for the track day + $30.
**REMEMBER: If you think that you will ride more than 4 times per year, then it may be more cost-efficient for you to buy a Recreational Licence ( Fee for year approx $120.00) and save your money with great discounts too!
For more information on getting an MA licence go to www.ma.org.au
