The CRMC was founded in 1980 and is one of the largest racing clubs in Europe. We have around 1,200 members who race, parade, marshal or just have a general interest in classic racing motorcycles.
Membership runs from January 1st to December 31st each year and you can choose which of the four types of membership suits you best.

CRMC Members have previously had the benefit of Personal Accident insurance whilst racing at CRMC events under the ‘Eric Parr CRMC Personal Accident Policy’. Regrettably, having funded premiums since 2014 using part of the bequest from Eric Parr, these funds have been exhausted and the commitee has decided against further funding. The policy lapsed in April 2019. Click here for more details about the Eric Parr Group Personal Accident policy
