The Motorcycle Racing Club of WA Inc. (MCRCWA) is the premier promoter of motorcycle road racing in Western Australia. Road race related activities are also run including rider coaching at our Racecraft courses, along with tuning days and social events.
The Club is one of the oldest road racing Clubs in Australia, running road races in Western Australia since the 1950's. The Club membership tallies around the 300 member mark per year with up to 130 riders racing in each of the five State Championship Rounds held at Barbagallo Raceway Wanneroo.
The Club was formed in 1955 and has continued to go from strength to strength due to a number of enthusiastic volunteers over many years. In the early days the Club ran events at Caversham (an old airfield circuit out in the Swan Valley) and also many 'around the houses street circuits' in country towns during the 1950's to the early 1990's - from Albany in the south, Geraldton in the north and Kalgoorlie/Boulder in the east.
In 1968 Wanneroo Raceway (now known as Barbagallo Raceway) - a purpose built race track was opened. This circuit is operated by the Western Australian Sporting Car Club (WASCC), a bitumen circuit located approximately 26kms north of Perth. It has a short circuit of 1.76km (used by the Historic Competition Motorcycle Club) and a long circuit of 2.4 kms (running in a clockwise direction).
In 1982 the Club purchased their own premises in Wangara where to this day Clubrooms and an Office are open to the public 5 days a week. All day to day business and event co-ordination is conducted from these offices.
The Club caters for a wide range of competitors from age 14 (125GP class) to the late 60's. Both solo and sidecar machines compete in various classes at a total of 8 race meetings per year.
The Club prides itself in providing competition, practice and rider coaching and training in a safe and controlled environment under the guidance of Accreditated & Volunteer Officials and Coaches.
RidedaysWA Coaching is not only a way to obtain a Competition Race License but also is a valuable opportunity for the general public street riders to experience the thrill of riding on a race circuit and at the same time gaining valuable knowledge and experience improving their skills for on the road.
The MCRCWA has figured prominently in the staging of several rounds of the National Australian Road Race Championships over past years, but due to the vastness of Australia and the long distance travel, private promoters controlling the Australian Rounds dropped WA off the National Calendar
The Club is affiliated with Motorcycling Australia ('MA') the national controlling body of motorcycle sport in Australia via our State body, Motorcycling WA ('MWA').
