The Vintage Road Racing Association (VRRA), Canada’s classic and vintage roadracing association, was founded in 1980 by a group of enthusiasts who just wanted to get their treasured machines back on the track. Their avowed purpose: to ensure the preservation of racing motorcycles and to maintain the traditions of racing vintage, and now classic motorcycles in Canada.
The Association has grown and flourished in the ensuing years and now actively promotes four racing events to encourage and expand participation in the sport. The VRRA is the only motorcycle association in Canada devoted solely to classic and vintage road racing – encompassing 1940s to 1980s machines – and is the oldest such organization in North America.
The spirit and tradition of club racing are the heart of the association. Members share a strong sense of competition and camaraderie; often entire families are involved. Competitors range from 16 to 75 years of age, all with an active and youthful attitude.
Many members are “budget racers”, riding street-based machines that have been modified for racing. Others are ex-racers professionals and amateurs who like to stay with the bikes they raced so successfully in years past. An award winning newsletter and an excellent web site help new members adapt to this fun and exciting sport.
New racing members who have never raced or who have not raced for ten years are required to take a racing school prior to competing in a VRRA event. New members who have raced previously will require some proof or confirmation of their prior experience.
You don’t have to be a racer to belong to the VRRA. Non-racing members are vital to the long-term success of the club – as event volunteers, mechanics, bike builders and owners, scoring and timers, tech inspectors, grid workers, marshals and fans.
