Need assistance with you bike classification? Go here for BMST’s Classification flowchart. If you know your AMA class designation click here. This chart is for information only. It should not replace reading and understanding the FIM rules and classifications. The Event promoter will not be held responsible if you incorrectly classify your vehicle.

Your documentation for part (A) & (B) is to be submitted to the AMA. Address and contact details are listed on the 2018 FIM License application.


  • Part (a) and (b) is due to the FIM 30 days prior to the event. The AMA will need to forward your paperwork to the FIM. All this MUST be completed before the deadline. We have set deadlines for the paperwork to arrive at the AMA to ensure we have enough time to confirm it’s complete and submit it to the FIM. If you do not meet the deadlines we cannot guarantee that your paperwork will be submitted in time (deadlines are listed on the checklist)


  • The rider certification fee for a world record attempt is $300* USD per SUCCESSFUL attempt. You are only charged for a SUCCESSFUL world record attempt after the fact. Credit Card details for payment will be requested  prior to being processed for a record. FIM ratification generally takes place at the FIM Congress Meetings each year. The $300* fee will be for the FIM ratification process as well as receiving a certificate for the Mile and Kilometer. AMA will process your certification fee.

* Charges based on current Euro exchange rate. Check with AMA for Current fee schedule.

  • Each motorcycle will require a separate World Record Attempt Application (part b). This is also true if you compete in an additional class (i.e. with fairing (div b) and without fairings (div a)) with the same vehicle. Please include full Category/Group/Division/Type/Class/No. of Cylinders in the appropriate sections on the World Record Attempt Application.
  • If you have one vehicle but more than one rider, BOTH riders must be licensed to be eligible for the world record attempt. You need also to submit a WR application for each rider, and an additional rider form for BMST entry.
