 (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 and born after 01.01.14. 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

C & D class may be split by wheel size:

C class: standard and medium

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
