WE ALL MUST SIGN THIS PETITION AND GET FRIENDS TO DO SO AS WELL OR FACE COMPULSORY

REGISTRATION / INSURANCE OFF OR ON ROAD

 

Following the landmark ‘Vnuk’ case, the European Court of Justice has ruled that national laws must be changed to ensure that all mechanically propelled vehicles are insured for third-party losses regardless of type of use, in all places, at any time.

This applies to everything from Formula One racing cars, to mobility scooters, to antique trams and everything in-between (obviously includes all forms of motorcycle sport). 

The UK Government opened a consultation on Wednesday 21st December, seeking views on two proposed ways forward.You can read more here: www.fightvnuk.co.uk

So how can you help? We have started a petition asking that HM Government under no circumstances implements the 'Vnuk' judgement in a way that encompasses vehicles involved in motor and motorcycle sport activities.

Website: www.fightvnuk.co.uk

Petition: http://bit.ly/2i6Cgsf

Can I ask you please to sign the petition to show the Government the strength of support we have in Motorcycle sport and then please disseminate this email as far and as wide as you can to all the Membership and likewise encourage all our Licence Holders and anyone you know who rides motorcycles/enjoys the sport as a competitor/official/spectator to sign the petition.

It is the responsibility of the rider to ensure a machine and equipment used in competition is mechanically and structurally

in a safe condition and fit for the intended purpose. When due to the nature of the competition the machine is

ridden on and off the Public Highway, it is also the responsibility of the rider to ensure compliance with

all Road Traffic Act(s) requirements.

The ACU have recently announced for 2016 an excellent enhancement to their insurance cover for Long Distance Trials.

All riders who compete in the LDT series will automatically be covered for no extra cost to follow the set course on and off the public highway providing their bike is compliant with all Road Traffic Act(s) requirements. Any queries about this contact the event Secretary.

Anti Tampering Legislation for Motorcycles

The EU has started the ball rolling by adopting a regulation (on 11.12.2012) which is the first hurdle on 'laws' that have not even been written, concerning Anti Tampering of New Motorcycles over 125cc. It does not appear to make any distinction on whether it is a motorcycle registered for road use or a motorcycle used only off-road but stipulates for example that they will all have an anti-lock braking system, lights automatically turning on, emissions under Euro 4 with onboard diagnostics to ensure they comply, and other items. The dates that all these areas come to be enforced vary and they still have to start writing the rules that these Ministers have voted for without even knowing what they will be. If ever there is a need for creating a bonkers parliament for winding up their constituents then look no further than the civil servants in the EU. How any current 2 or 4 stroke trials bike over 125cc will pass Euro 4 or 5 or 6 or whatever is in force when they finally pass the unwritten rules is anyone's guess. However, it may just be the time to develop an affordable modern electric trials bike  before this all comes in. Although it made no difference to the vote at least the UK and Bulgarian representatives made it clear that these 'laws' were passed without providing any evidence to support the proportionate benefits and that they have flouted their own best practice principals to get this through. Hopefully our Government at the time, whatever political persuasion it may be will refuse to consider any legislation to be enacted on its citizens which had been formulated and passed without any evidence for it being clearly presented to show any benefit. The next stage will be bikes under 125 and then who knows it could go back to an arbitrary date in time.

The two documents are here requirements and here statement.
