 (See ACU Handbook TSR1 (page 197) for full details)

Note BIG change to B class for 2019:

riders born between 1.01.2007 and 31.12.2007 have the option of either:
Moving to the B class in the year in which they reach 12 yrs on a machine up to 125cc (and being eligible for B Class points )
Remaining in the C Class for another year on a
machine of up to 80cc and retaining eligibility for C Class points.

Youth Age Groups:
A Class born between 01.01.02 and 31.12.03
B Class born between 01.01.04 and 31.12.07
C Class born between 01.01.08 and 31.12.09
D Class born between 01.01.10 and 31.12.13
E Class: minimum age 4 years at the date of competition. Minimum age for combustion engine machine is 6 years

The maximum engine capacity and wheel size permitted for machines used in the age groups set out in this Regulation are as follows:

A Class 125cc Mono or 250cc Twinshock, and Electric up to 10 bhp measured at the rear wheel

B Class 125cc Mono or 250cc Twinshock, and Electric up to 10 bhp measured at the rear wheel

C Class Standard Wheel 80cc, and Electric up to 7 bhp measured at the rear wheel

D Class Medium wheel 80cc, and Electric up to 7 bhp measured at the rear wheel

E Class Small wheel Electric powered machines up to 2 bhp measured at the rear wheel

D class: medium and small

Wheel sizes

Standard Wheel 21" Front 18" Rear
Medium Wheel 19" Front 17" Rear
Small Wheel 16" Front 14" Rear

The above is based on the wheels of combustion engined machines using motorcycle tyres. If other wheels are used as on current Electric powered machines then the outside diameter (total circumference) of the tyre must not exceed that of the corresponding tyre size.

                                Engine Sizes

Rebores are permitted subject to the resulting engine capacity not exceeding a tolerance of +3cc

25 August


Brough Rough'N Andy Atkinson Memorial Charity Trial

All proceeds are going to Bluebell Wood Childrens Hospice

Enter at start before 10:30

The start will be signposted and can only be accessed via Duper Lane, Abney, Derbyshire, S32 1AH

a slightly different format this year as all riders will do 3 laps of 15 sections over a roughly 6 mile lap. It is all one route and the hardest sections are all graded hills so nothing daft and suitable for all abilities. We have some new sections in the stream which are looking great so there will be something for everybody.

We have the usual charity raffle immediately after the event with some great prizes and there are some Michelin tyres to be won this year.

Catering at the start all day along with an ice cream van if the weather allows.

Entry fee is 20 and observers are required who will be paid 20 and will receive a voucher for the catering van. Obviously the 20 can be donated to charity if they so wish.

If anybody can help observing then please contact Richard Timperley on 07545 468341 or email
