 For 2021:

See ACU Handbook Trials Standing Regulations  (Page 6 )
TSR.1 for full details

*Note change to B/C class again for 2021:

riders who reach the age of 12 in 2021 (ie born after 31.12.2008) 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) a rider MUST be 12 to ride a 125 mono.

• 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 01.01.04 and 31.12.05
B Class born between 01.01.06 and 31.12.09*
C Class born between 01.01.09* and 31.12.11
D Class born between 01.01.12 and 31.12.15
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&B Class 125cc Mono or 250cc Twinshock**, and Electric up to 10 bhp measured at the rear wheel

**Twinshock machines over125cc must have twin rear suspension and drum brakes at time it was manufactured

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

D Class Medium & Small 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

Wheel sizes

riders must enter the class which covers the wheel size of the machine they take part on

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
