    Hi, Guys & Gals:

    For those who are interested in racing, below are the tips on getting SMSA license in order to take part legally for race events conducted locally or overseas.

    Fees are as follows:

    1. Entrance Fee (One Time Payment) - S$80
    2. New Ordinary & Renewal Membership - S$ 40.00 / Year
    3. Race License - Depending on class / catergory applying for.


    Steps to apply:

    A. Application for SMSA MEMBERSHIP

    1. Bring along 2 x passport size photograph.

    2. Go to SMSA @
    Singapore Motor Sports Association,
    20 Maxwell Road,
    #10-18 Maxwell House
    Singapore 069113

    3. Fill in the form as provided by Janet.


    B. Application for RACE LICENSE

    1. Fill in form as provided by Janet.

    2. Take Medical Record log from Janet and see a doc of your choice for annual checkup & Tetanus Jab.

    3. Bring the Medical Record log to Janet.

    4. Pay for race license and your race license will be sent to u by post.


    C. Steps in Taking part in RACE if you are a member of SMSA holding valid RACE LICENSE.

    1. Must take note that the race must be SANCTIONED by SMSA or affliated FMNs, ie AAM.

    2. Read SR of race. SR provides you with the race schedule, date / time / place of a race. It also provides you with rules & regulations, DOs & DON'Ts, restrictions... etc.

    3. The class which you are taking part must be the class which you applied for in your race license, ie SUPERMOTARD = Dirt Bike & Motorcross class as indicated in your race license.

    4. Go down to the place as indicated in the SR to fill in participation form, idemity form and pay money for the race.

    5. Make sure your race license is valid. If it is not, u must go down to SMSA at address as indicated above to renew your licenses. There are some cases of license not able to be handed over to u on the day of renewal or application. U can show the receipt to proof when registration for race.


    ** Pls take note that there are 2 different things to apply. 1 is for SMSA Membership, 2 is for Race license. U must be a SMSA member before you can apply for race license.

    *** If u just want to be a member of SMSA, u can just apply for SMSA membership. There are SMSA events where u can participate like SMSA AGM, where u have voting rights too. But pls take note you have to renew it annually. Calender date for SMSA is 1st of Jan - 31 Dec every year. A reminder letter will be sent by post to renew.

    **** If u wanna race overseas, ie PG or Sepang, u need to purchase race insurance.

    Just the grade of licence and that sort of sets the perimeters of which events you can compete in and what type of insurance needed(also depends on event).

    National Licence Events
    1. Johor Clubman
    2. Malaysian Superseries
    3. Kallang Cub Prix/Motard

    International Licence Events
    1. Asia Pacific Grand Prix
    2. Any other event(Club or otherwise) taking place outside of Malaysia and Singapore.

    In Singapore, riders and drivers are NEED to have a Government Issued driver's licence before you can apply for a competition licence. So in that sense, the age limit is limited by the government. The exception to the rules are:

    (1) Already racing abroad e.g. 15years, too young to have a road licence but have results from abroad.

    (2) Has ever been trained or can show some proof of decent closed circuit riding expertise to competition secretary who will appeal on your behalf and on a case-by-case basis.

    $40 for renewal ONLY.

    $60 for NATIONAL LICENCE.

    I think $100 for International.

    All seperate items and need to be renewed yearly.

    Is there any procedure for People from other countries getting a race licence in sg? I've found the notes on getting Malaysian race licence -
    "If you are not a Malaysian Citizen, you will have to get a release letter from your home race authority (a fax will do) to say that they have no objection to you getting a Malaysian Race license. British passport holders can get in touch with the Auto Cycle Union.

    Please contact the AAM Motorsports department for details on this. Singaporean Citizens will have to go through a similar process with the Singapore MotorSports Association (SMSA) and get in touch with SIC officials for an Invite to join the race.

    You are now allowed to race in the MSS! "

    Which is absically be enough- as there arnt any road races in SG... - but this is dataed 2003... any further tips is appreciated....

    as per above, u just need a release letter from ur country of origin' race association. then i guess u may be able to apply for a race license locally.

    but if i'm wrong, u'd better contact janet from

    for a start, u need to get ur own suit, bike and train urself...
    its a long way if u really wan to be a racer..
    U have to be recognized b4 anyone will be willing to sponsor unless gt some rich ppl whose money overflowing go sponsor u....
    b4 tat..u r on your own..

    Everyone I know just gives money for their race licence, kind of like buying it.

    It's very similar to 3rd world countries where you just walk in, pay for a driving licence, walk out and buy a car. No tests, no briefing, no information given, nothing, zip, zilch, nada.

    You know what, it's just as easy as buying a Big Mac. I think they should do home delivery, you know just call and order, wait for the delivery dude and pay.

    Many racers out there get more information on racing knowledge like flag colours and the meanings, track ettiquette, preparation...etc from their friends.

    Maybe we should pay their friends instead of paying for the licence? I think it's more worth it that way.

    Goes to show what some people care about.

    Besides, this adds to the danger since new riders have no idea what to do or expect.

    I learnt the flags and basic rules online for free,

    I guess it's a free-for-all kinda deal to begin participating in races, and there's no hard and fast rule for one to participate; timing is definitely not exclusively one of them.
    Each and every one has their own skill...however, since everybody is fast, racers usually find training to keep up with others.

    However, as a race participant has mentioned to me when I asked him, before and during the race it's better to respect other racers by (eg)

    1. Keeping your bike clean and leak-free; keeps the track clean.
    2. Mirrors and signal lights absolutely a nono. Chain/sprocket, fairings, and parts intact.
    3. Knowing what the coloured flags are for (as mentioned by Hartlo...erm..thomew, difficult to pronounce leh)
    4. Adhering to other requirements that a sanctioned race may have when you sign the paper.

    It's essentially basic courtesy...racetrack style.

    This is based on pure luck that a bikeshop takes a racer under its wing.

    I have seen one that simply and wholeheartedly participates in races without any sponsorship assistance. Now that's dedication indeed!

    Any frequent racers here? Do feel free to leave comments or corrections, if you find any

    It's very similar to 3rd world countries where you just walk in, pay for a driving licence, walk out and buy a car. No tests, no briefing, no information given, nothing, zip, zilch, nada.

    You know what, it's just as easy as buying a Big Mac. I think they should do home delivery, you know just call and order, wait for the delivery dude and pay.

    Many racers out there get more information on racing knowledge like flag colours and the meanings, track ettiquette, preparation...etc from their friends.

    Maybe we should pay their friends instead of paying for the licence? I think it's more worth it that way.

    Goes to show what some people care about.

    Besides, this adds to the danger since new riders have no idea what to do or expect.

    I learnt the flags and basic rules online for free,

    Default SMSA Racing License

    Im not sure either. My personal feeling is that if you are ambivalent about racing you probably shouldnt. Like Jay and Fister, I like going out and working on skills and BS-ing without the pressure of trying to win anything. I would like to apply for my license and do the two race weekends just to get the official license one day though. Mostly just to say I did it.
