Welcome to Manawatu-Orion Motorcycle Club
The Manawatu-Orion Motorcycle Club (Inc.) known as "MOMCC" was formed in 1911 and is centered in the Manawatu District of New Zealand, based in the City of Palmerston North.
The Manawatu region is known as the motorsports capital of New Zealand and we are proud to be a part of that region. Our club hosts many motorcycle events including motocross, road racing , trials, trail rides, miniature road race, enduro, super motard, ATV, and just good old fun days in the dirt.
Events are organised by sub-committees who report to a Management Committee on a monthly basis.
Subscription year runs from 1st April to 31st March. Club membership is required to gain a competition licence from Motorcycling New Zealand.
Club membership application forms can be downloaded from our website under the Entry Forms menu (above). They can also be obtained at local bike shops in the Manawatu region and are always (well, almost always) available from the caravan at club mx events.
