AMA Vs MA controlling bodies
« on: Today at 05:55:08 PM »
yesterday i saw that the Bendigo Motorcycle club in Vic' (a big club and also one that has been around for a long time) has now affiliated with AMA and severed ties with MA. up until now the AMA was only getting smallish clubs across to them.

i no longer race and doubt if i ever will again, i am not up on the politics of all this either.

i know little about the AMA but there seems to be a ground swell moving away from MA due to the high price of fees for meeting and insurance.

so the more clubs that move away will increase the premiums from the underwriters to gain insurance for MA events, my take is this will be a downward spiral and eventually MA will cease to exist and will fold. what will then happen to tracks like broadford etc ?

anyone got anything to add?
