After all that, WMRRA is now at risk of cancelling the entire season. Round 1 already nixed...makes the late departure from racing all that more palatable.

If you guys have read up on the "Ducati lawsuit", this is basically the same situation and WMRRA is now facing the consequences.

WMRRA Announcement
Round 1, 2018 Season


The Washington Motorcycle Road Racing Association is disappointed to announce the official cancellation of Round 1, at Pacific Raceways in Kent Washington.

In September 2017, WMRRA was notified of our then current insurance provider McNaughton, that the association had been absolved of liability regarding an on-track incident during the 2013 race-season. This incident resulted in a lawsuit naming both WMRRA and Pacific Raceways. Although WMRRA was absolved of liability, an arbitration judgment was made against the association's insurance policy which covered the track as an 'Additional insured' party for the race event. WMRRA race-staff had not been asked for testimony, or deposition during this arbitration.

2 weeks prior to our policy renewal date of March 1st- WMRRA was notified that its coverage would not be renewed. 6 weeks later, we have yet to procure an insurance provider willing to offer coverage, due to the judgment. Because WMRRA is unable to secure or guarantee, proper liability coverage we must announce the cancellation for Round 1 of the 2018 season, at Pacific Raceways.

Novices- Because we can not risk the association to litigation without proper insurance coverage, we will be refunding the On-track portion of your NRS fee. Once you complete your NRS on-track portion, WMRRA will issue your novice license as standard. WMRRA will be refunding $200 of your licensing fee, and Mark DeGross with 2-Fast has graciously agreed to offer special pricing in consideration of the situation. Please contact 2-Fast directly to arrange the NRS track-event on 4/13.

On a personal note- We greatly appreciate the outpouring of support and recommendations for providers. WMRRA leadership, in partnership with OMRRA, AFM, and other 3rd parties are still working very hard to ensure success for the remainder of the 2018 race-season.

Thank you.
