Flat Track Canada is pleased to announce that it’s advancing their relationship with the Welland County Motorcycle Club, WCMC.
The full 2016 WCMC schedule will now be sanctioned through Flat Track Canada Inc. Which means that the two FTC rounds will continue to be part of the National Series, however the remaining eight race dates which were in the past sanctioned through CMA will now be considered part of FTC’s provincial championship.
“Structurally this is important long term strategy in every perspective” states Aaron Hesmer, FTC president. “Flat Track is naturally growing nation-wide and it’s best for the sport to become unified. It will increase the exposure of the sport, as well as other benefits with the alliance. Flat Track has so much potential that working together with every group, club, and promoter, we can make really BIG things happen.”
Geoff Tait, president of the Welland County Motorcycle Club adds, “because of Flat Track Canada’s commitment to growing the sport through training schools, extensive promotion and industry sponsorship we decided to again be a part of their national series with two races at our track. We then had to decide whether to run CMA, FTC regional’s, or ‘outlaw’ non- sanctioned races for the remaining eight dates on our calendar. FTC offered a package of insurance, technology and promotion that made good business sense for us along with providing unified, single license purchase for our racers.”
