The Washington Motorcycle Road Racing Association (WMRRA) was established in 1974 to sanction and promote area road racing. That year, a small group of enthusiastic racers decided they needed to band together and create a club so they could sanction and run their own racing events at the popular racing track in Kent, WA, then known as Seattle International Raceways. WMRRA is a non-profit, volunteer run organization with over 500 members.
Since that time, WMRRA has grown to become one of the most popular motorcycle racing clubs in North America. Many top WMRRA racers have gone onto become national and international race winners and champions, not to mention U.S.A's first world champion, Steve Baker.
Close racing action can be seen on a variety of bikes. From the nimble little 125 GP machines - to the insanely fast 190+ HP Formula Ultra superbikes, and everything in between. Singles, Twins, Triples, Fours, Harleys, Vintage bikes and the occasional sidecar are pushed to the limit on any given WMRRA weekend. If it has 2 wheels, chances are we race it! Spectators have incredible access to many great viewing points around the tracks at which we race. From breathtaking cornering with insane lean angles, to long straights with top speeds in excess of 170 mph, those viewing the races from the safety of the spectator areas will be treated to a unique experience that can only be found in the naked aggression of a motorcycle road race.
WMRRA's racing events are held at:
Pacific Raceways just southeast of Kent, WA, off Hwy-18.
Spokane County Motorsports Park, just north of Airway Heights, WA, off Hwy-2.
The Ridge Motorsports Park, just west of Shelton, WA, off Hwy-101
All of our race venues offer full amenities - food and beverage vendors, motorcycle accessory vendors, restroom facilities, EMS staff, and more.
The enthusiast and the curious alike converge on these motorcycle Meccas from all over the Northwest.
The paddock area is a great place to check out bikes. Motorcycles of every make and model appear on race days, and the racers are happy to chat with spectators about their bikes and racing them.
Motorcycle racing is a great family sport with a friendly, welcoming atmosphere of camaraderie for the whole family. WMRRA racers range in age from 12 to 70, and often 2 or 3 generations of the same family can be seen on the track battling for position.
For those who would like a more up close and personal experience WMRRA offers the "Taste of Racing" – where you can turn a few laps of Pacific Raceways yourself at nearly race speed on your own motorcycle. Once you get a taste of the track, you might just find that you're interested in proceeding further, taking the WMRRA novice school, and learning to race yourself!
