Sad news from Scott Ellis:

John Brittain 1932-2019

Photo here

 I regret to report that Trials Legend John Brittain has passed away after a short illness,

John was born at Wombourne near Wolverhampton in 1932, his father Vic was a trials and TT rider winning many Gold Medals.

John was a legend in motorcycle trials winning 13 Gold Medals in the International Six Days Trial, he was a member of the winning team in 1953; the last time Britain won the event.

John won the Scottish Six Days and the Scott Trials on two occasions, British Trials Champion and British Experts winner.

John won over 50 National Trials in a career which spanned twenty years.

He rode for the DMW and James factory teams but will be most remembered for his association with the Royal Enfield brand where he enjoyed most of his success.

 John remained an ambassador for the Royal Enfield until his death.

In later years he became a dairy farmer at Ramshorn in Staffordshire, actively involved in the business until very recently.

He is survived by brother Pat, wife Wendy and daughters Heidi and Trudi.

He was a true gentleman who will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

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 )

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:

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
