Class 9....
« on: May 19, 2018, 10:02:45 am »
Just managed to enter the testing trial now the web site is functioning again.

On the class selection box thereís a class 9- retro cars, is this a new class on the horizon?

Classes 9 and F in the online system are for those entering the "Retro Class".
Or as it is more commonly known - Class R
We have to have two "classes" one for cars and one for bikes so that the system asks the correct questions - no point in asking a car driver for his ACU number, or asking a biker if he has a limited slip diff.

Thanks Simon.

2 wheel drive Bikes? (Yamaha did make one so did some other limited volume manufactures ... Or indeed sidecars ( Ural. Cossack. DNPR.). In Class R?

Might as well ask the question.

I don't know why anyone would want to run a 2WD bike on an all tarmac event.
As for SCWD, whilst the ACU does not formally allow this, if one were to enter we would be able to get dispensation from the ACU to let it run.   Such outfits do at least look like ordinary road machines, unlike Wasps which are clearly specialist productions.

I figured there were at least a couple of "Sections" in Class R....?


I need to investigate further...
