Road Racing is another popular form of competition, thanks in part to the popularity of MotoGP and World Superbike on the world stage.
Road racing bikes are usually commercially available production motorcycles designed for street use, with minor modifications to convert them to racing machines.
Purpose built asphalt race tracks, usually around 3km long or more, allow for side-by-side racing, fast cornering and high speeds on the straights – often exceeding 280km/h.
Races are generally held over 5 to 10 laps, with qualifying lap times determining the starting positions for the races.
Non-competitive track days are also hugely popular, allowing participants to take their track or even their registered street bike on the racetrack to the best of their abilities.
Road Race caters for beginners through to the very elite. Whether its riding as a race competitor, for recreation or participation as volunteer, official or spectator there is a place in the Road Race community for everyone.

What you need to get started
Road Racing motorcycles can be identified by their smooth, aerodynamic fairings, hunkered-down riding position, and high-revving engines. Many of the bikes are ex-street bikes.
