Getting started with racing
ACTVets provides potential members with the opportunity have a go at racing using a trial membership. You can use this to participate in two races within a four week period prior to committing to joining. Before racing you must complete an AVCC Trial Membership Form and mail it to email@example.com along with the grade you wish to race in at least two days before the race. A trial member race number will then be allocated to you which will allow pre-entry into a race. Your bike must be roadworthy and you must wear a helmet that complies with AS 2063 at all races.
Please read the information below regarding conditions of membership and then submit your application via the AVCC online membership portal

Members are encouraged to renew their membership by 31 December if they plan to race in the following year, although membership can be renewed at any time.
