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
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)
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.

specific that you are looking for then please feel free to ask for a
quotation as we are always looking to expand our range to suit all aspects
of Trials and Enduro.
Many thanks, Jon Davis
Anti Tampering Legislation for
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.
