PICKERINGTON, Ohio — The American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) is pleased to announce a new insurance program for AMA-sanctioned events that yields quality coverage and lower rates for AMA clubs and promoters, who collectively organize more than 3,000 events each year.
The program, which took effect September 29, follows an effort initiated by the AMA to locate and deliver a better insurance program for its organizers. The partnership with the AMA’s new “preferred” insurance provider, Lockton Affinity, brings with it new rates that have been reduced by 10 percent compared to previous rates.
“AMA racing and recreational events are the gold standard for amateur motorcycle competition and riding in America,” said
Joe Bromley, AMA director of racing and organizer services. “Our riders, clubs and promoters expect quality customer service and competitive prices, especially in today’s environment. That’s why we’re pleased to be in a position to lower costs to the clubs and promoters who sanction their events with the AMA.”
AMA clubs and promoters who hold events between September 29, 2011, and September 28, 2012 will receive the same great level of insurance coverage they have in the past, Bromley noted. Coverage for AMA events will still be offered by an A-plus rated insurance company, but the new program offers significant savings for organizers.
“AMA clubs and promoters organize the best amateur motorcycle and all-terrain vehicle competition and recreational events
in the world, and we’re thrilled to be working with them,” Ryan Staub, producer at Lockton Affinity, a program division of Lockton Companies LLC, said.
The new 2011-12 sanctioned-event insurance application is available for AMA Organizers to download in the Resources and Forms section of the AMA website at www.AmericanMotorcyclist.com.
