AHRMA Barber Roadrace Racer Requirements

Anyone wishing to participate in the AHRMA roadracing events at the 2019 Barber Vintage Festival must meet all of the following requirements. For additional information regarding class and event details, check the AHRMA website, www.ahrma.org.

  1. You must be an AHRMA member – no exceptions. There are no weekend memberships for this event. Please refer to the 2019 AHRMA Handbook for more information on the qualifications necessary to become an AHRMA member.
  2. To qualify to race in the AHRMA roadrace at Barber:
    1. You must participate in at least two AHRMA roadraces over two separate weekends in the current season and must have logged a minimum of 16 transponder-scored laps. In those 16 laps, all riders are required to complete one full race, accepting the race-finishing flag, be it checkered or red.
    2. If you took the Fast & Safe Roadrace School during the current season, you must also participate in at least two AHRMA roadraces over two separate weekends to qualify to race at Barber, and must have logged a minimum of 16 transponder-scored laps. In those 16 laps, all riders are required to complete one full race, accepting the race-finishing flag, be it checkered or red. You may not use the Talledega Fast & Safe Roadrace School to qualify
    3. If you complete one or more AHRMA roadraces at one race weekend in the current season, and complete one or more roadraces with other recognized race organizations (USCRA, CCS for example) in the current season, you will be eligible to race at Barber. You must submit proof of participation for non-AHRMA race(s) to Elli Klein (elli.klein@ahrma.org) and receive verification before you register.  However, AHRMA racers qualifying through 2.a and 2.b. will be given first consideration until September 10, 2019.
    4. The following are the only exceptions to this requirement
      1. International racers must submit proof of participation in at least three 2019 roadraces in the country of their license.
      2. 2018 AHRMA National or Regional Roadrace Champions are exempted from the requirement of participating in two races over two separate weekends in the current season as detailed above and must have a current AHRMA license.
      3. Professional US racers who submit 2019 results and agree to participate in both AHRMA practice days to become familiar with AHRMA-specific procedures and must hold an AHRMA license.
      4. In an extremely limited number of instances, certain well-known professional national or international championship riders with a high-level of public recognition will be allowed to compete without meeting the above-noted requirements.
    5. The final decision in these exemptions will rest with the AHRMA Executive Committee. Riders wishing to request an exemption must submit a request, along with documentation supporting the request, to the AHRMA Executive Director no later than 14 days prior to the Barber pre-entry deadline.
  3. All race participants at Barber must participate in either the Thursday or Friday AHRMA practice day. As in 2012-‘18, there will be no raceday practice either Saturday or Sunday.
  4. There will be no AHRMA Fast & Safe Roadracing School at Barber.
  5. AHRMA will accept a maximum of 600 entries per day.
