MARKHAM, ON — The Motorcyclists Confederation of Canada (MCC) and Flat Track Canada (FTC) have joined together to promote the growing sport of flat track motorcycle racing in Canada.
“Flat Track Canada is very pleased to join forces with the MCC and we welcome the opportunity to work together to power flat track’s renaissance and promote an exciting, competitive flat track series in Canada,” noted FTC President Aaron Hesmer. “Our relationship with the MCC is an important building block, especially as we reach out to other flat track organizations in furthering the sport and developing a structured national flat track program for amateur and professional riders across the country.”
“The Flat Track Canada team has shown great vision and with Aaron Hesmer at the helm, I am confident this strategic partnership will contribute to the growth and popularity of flat track racing in Canada,” said MCC Chair Kellee Irwin. “I am also confident that Flat Track Canada will make a meaningful contribution to the shared and collaborative vision of the MCC Competition Council as it continues its focus on training, risk management and safety protocols for competitive motorcycling in Canada.”
“Increased interest in rider training opportunities is mirroring the rebirth of the sport,” added Aaron Hesmer. Though there has been a basic training program at our Paris Speedway training facility for the past few years, our recently launched GoFlatTrack.com offers a more comprehensive training program that will appeal to new and experienced flat track riders.”
Comprised of national, provincial and territorial organizations, regional clubs, individual patrons and industry representatives, the Motorcyclists Confederation of Canada is a national, grassroots advocacy organization championing motorcycling interests throughout Canada. The mandate of the MCC Competition Council is to develop and promote motorcycle competition in various disciplines whether professional or amateur or recreational with responsible practices.
