Mission

The Roadracing World Action Fund's mission is to prevent race track injuries.

To accomplish our mission, we will promote motorcycle racing safety and education.

Specifically, the Roadracing World Action Fund advocates and promotes the use of soft barriers to prevent racetrack injuries, and provides education on the value of adequate pre-race practice, rider training, and proper racetrack preparation. The Roadracing World Action Fund also addresses other health and safety education issues concerning motorcycle racing, such as tobacco advertising, the use of certified helmets and leathers, and setting rider safety as the top priority on race day.

Activities of the Roadracing World Action Fund

Race Event-based Activities

The Roadracing World Action Fund will conduct soft barrier demonstrations at various racetracks across the United States as part of an ongoing campaign of promoting safety, and to educate the public on motorcycle racing safety. The Roadracing World Action Fund will provide or arrange the use of soft barriers for such demonstrations. The Roadracing World Action Fund will also provide educational brochures on motorcycle safety at these events, including details of how soft barriers have been used successfully in the past to prevent catastrophic injury or death. These brochures will be freely distributed and copyright-free.

Soft barriers are not being used as much as they should be mainly due to a lack of knowledge on the part of the public, racetrack operators and race event sanctioning organizations concerning not only the impact attenuation effectiveness of soft barriers compared to the traditional use of haybales and tire walls, but also concerning the economic viability of using soft barriers. Just as car drivers had to be educated on the use of seat belts and air bags, getting the message out about using soft barriers will promote racetrack safety. Publicizing the often dramatic results of using soft barriers is an effective way to improve racetrack safety.

Website-based Activities

The official Roadracing World Action Fund website provides educational information regarding the use of soft barriers, and addresses other motorcycle racing safety issues.

Fundraising for the Roadracing World Action Fund is conducted through the official website, creating a community of contributors with a shared goal of making motorcycle racing safer.
