Welcome To AFM Racing
About The AFM
The AFM (American Federation of Motorcyclists) is a non-profit California corporation that was founded in 1954 by a group of sport riding enthusiasts in the North Bay Area. It is the oldest racing organization in the country dedicated soley to motorcycle road racing.
Northern California has one of the largest populations of sport riders in the country. Many of those sport riders find their way from the areas mountain and canyon roads to the AFM and the race track. Many of them, after a season or two on the track, cut back or quit street racing when the relative safety of pushing their limits on the track becomes clear.
The AFM welcomes spectators and racers alike, and we try to provide the best show possible with the safest and most responsible crew you are likely to find. We are a volunteer organization and are always looking for interested people to join in the fun.

Andrew Lee Takes Formula Pacific Victory At AFM Round 4
In California, we are very familiar with extreme weather. The 114-degree temperatures ensured conditions were difficult for all this past weekend, July 27th and 28th at Thunderhill Raceway Park in Willows, California. Riders in all classes would be struggling for grip, endurance, and power all weekend.
The forecast was weighing on the mind of everyone in the AFM paddock this week, and as Friday's track day event concluded, we only saw triple digits in the late afternoon.
