Welcome to the Motor Cycle Racing Club of WA
Welcome to MCRCWA's newest Life Member!
MCRC WELCOMES OUR NEWEST LIFE MEMBER
|At our first club meeting for the year (February 11th) Member Gino Coyle was honoured with Life Membership. Gino joined the club back in 2002 when he came along with work mate Don Galbraith to support Chris Galbraith when racing Supersport. Gino had bought a Honda 125 (A Mick Doohan look-a-like and used this to ride everywhere). In 2005 he took over Don’s role as machine examiner whilst Don became a full time pit mechanic to his son. Gino then stepped into the Chief Scrutineers role and has held this for a number of years. He has also officiated at the WSBK’s and this year will join the ASBK Series officials attending all rounds. His involvement isn’t just as a Scrutineer on race day, he can be found at every Tuning and Ridedays, most times as an official, sometimes as a Level 1 rider. There are also the numerous behind the scenes extra’s—cleaning the shed, setting up the track & pit paddock, sourcing valuable equipment for the club, assisting new riders and we cannot forget the Pink Beard fundraiser. CONGRATULATIONS GINO from all of us.|

Flag Marshal of the Year Darryl McCallum
Becoming a motorcycle road racing official/Flaggie is the best way of getting close to the action without being in the driver’s seat. Volunteer officials are a vital part of motorcycle racing and without them the sport could not function. Officials ensure that events are conducted safely, fairly and that the rules and regulations are upheld. A large number of officials with various skills are required to perform a wide range of tasks at race meeting throughout the race season. Who can become an Motorcycle Racing Club race day official? Anyone with an interest in the sport. Some age restrictions may apply, and there are different responsibilities for different levels of officials, but numerous opportunities are available to match your interests whilst learning new skills and meeting people.
FREE entry, on the spot training, high viz vest, hat/sunscreen/gloves, lunch and refreshments, end of day vouchers and raffle prizes plus the camaraderie of like minded people.

Volunteer Officials - Accreditation Courses
Motorcycling, like most sports, relies heavily on the input of volunteers to ensure that race meetings and events continue to run efficiently.
One of the best ways to get up close to the action is to get involved as a volunteer official.
Motorcycling WA hold regular Accreditation courses for any interested volunteer officials.
Level 1 is a 3 hour course held mostly weeknights but also some weekends.
All info can be found at www.motorcyclingwa.org.au register on line
