AMA Amateur Racing

The American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) invites racers to download the official 2012 AMA Amateur Competition Rulebook, available by clicking here.

The 2012 rulebook covers amateur, Pro/Am, standard and youth competition in motocross, off-road racing, track racing and all-terrain vehicle racing. It details rider and motorcycle eligibility, equipment standards, meet rules, points, class advancement and more.

The 2012 AMA Amateur Competition Rulebook goes into effect on Jan. 1, 2012.

Written and updated by the elected member representatives of the AMA Congress, which meets annually, the 203-page rulebook is provided for the exclusive use of AMA members and AMA-chartered clubs and promoters.

Joe Bromley (AMA Director of Racing) says: "The AMA’s history is rooted in nearly nine decades of amateur motorcycle competition, and the collective wisdom of that experience is reflected only in the AMA Amateur Competition Rulebook.

"The rulebook is available for the exclusive use at AMA-sanctioned events by AMA-chartered clubs and promoters. When you compete at these events, you can rest assured that the governing rules provide the gold standard of fair and orderly competition that is the hallmark of an AMA-sanctioned meet."

The AMA Racing Amateur Competition Rulebook is complemented by a host of supplemental rules that cover National Championship Series and Grand Championship Events. Supplemental rules packages for 2011 will be published as they become available at AmericanMotorcyclist.com.
