According to the admin calendar, the entries should have opened on 1st May.  I'm assuming entries will open very soon.

There's a problem with the website that, according to our administrator, is affecting some, but not others. I get the same symptoms as you.  It's being looked into so a case of watch this space for the moment.

Yep. I got an e mail from Simon. Should hopefully be fixed by tomorrow.

Is the Testing Trial open to non-members on motorcycles as long as they have an ACU license?

Anyone can enter the Testing Trial, riders will in effect be granted one day membership of the club, but they must also apply for an ACU Registration.   If they are only likely to do the Testing Trial, they can apply to me (NOT TO THE ACU) for a One Event Registration for just Four Quid, rather than the usual Tenner for the year.
They need to apply to me to get a log in to the Online System anyway so the two things can happen at the same time.

Hello all, Can my 15 year old son enter the testing trial? And do normal rules apply as per tyres? His bike has road legal enduro pattern tyres on.

Thanks

Brad

Hi Paul, I don't see a message in "my messages". Am I looking in the right place?

Brad, check your email; it may have gone there.  I've made some enquiries and await an answer.  One question; what make and name are the enduro pattern tyres on the bike?

No Email I'm afraid. Tyre details here:     http://dbracing.co.uk/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=58_106&products_id=297

The bike is registered and road legal

Thanks Brad

Probably need to talk to Simon.

Everyone else will be using Trials Tyres as per ACU & MCC Regulations.

Not strictly true.  The MCC SSR do allow some non-trials pattern tyres as the extract copied from the 2016 SSR shows below.

'The space between the tread blocks must NOT extend across the complete tyre, measured at right angles to the tyre wall unless broken by a block. In addition competitors in class C ONLY will be permitted to use either Continental TKC 80 tyres or Michelin T63 tyres.'

To my eyes, the tyres comply with the SSR because the space between the tread blocks doesn't extend across the complete tyre; they are also described as dual-sport tyres, not enduro tyres.  Anyway Brad, the latest update I have had from the organisers is below.

'I am sure we can accommodate both the 15 year old, and his tyres.  I will have to check with the ACU about the use of enduro tyres in a trial, as these are prohibited by the ACU but I am told one can apply for a “waiver” to allow such things in a “special” class.'

That's good news. The lad just wants a ride out on his new bike before he takes to the road next month. As he's neither an MCC member or has ACU registration who do I contact to get him in?

Thanks

Brad
