At the Langmaid Trial 20th August 2017 there was some suggestion that the ACU had changed the ruling on late entries

and they were able to obtain points and awards.  The short answer about points

and late entries is that the centre is the deciding body as they issue the permits in SE.

and we decided some time ago that late entries etc will not get points and awards and it would take

either an AGM or an EGM to affect a change. This is only for Centre Championship rounds,

Groups and clubs may decide to allow points on late entries

Just to clarify to riders and clubs that a rider correctly entered in a SE Centre Trial  by the closing date can change class or route strictly for no points or awards.

Changing class or route effectively is a withdrawal of their entry from the event and they become a late entry on the day.

Entries on the Day do not qualify for points or awards but may be listed in the results noted as FNA

This Rule has been a Centre rule since at least 2000

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.
