SINGLE EVENT RACE LICENSE

A Single Event license gives you the opportunity to race with the AFM for a weekend and the license expires once the race weekend is over.


RECIPROCITY LICENSE
The AFM offers reciprocity to license holders from other approved motorcycle road racing organizations.
Reciprocity license holders will NOT receive or accrue points, either in class or overall. 
They may appear on results/standings prior to the season-end final standings but are not eligible for season-end championships or contingency awards. 

Reciprocity license holders may upgrade to a Competition License prior to July 1, 2022.


WORKER
A safe raceday requires lots of volunteers and some of the hardest-working volunteers are the AFM Course Workers.
We are always looking for energetic, conscientious people to work with our turnworking group, many of whom work national or international events.
Renew or apply to be an AFM Course Worker and be part of one of the best motorcycle racetrack working groups around.
