• 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 )

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

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


All land belongs to someone and riding on it requires the owners permission - simple

Practising at ANY Trials venue, with the exception of known practice venues with the landowners permission (see below) is not allowed

If you're caught by the land owner, or if they find there have been riders practising we will lose the use of the venue completely. NO LAND = NO TRIALS!
