Changes for 2017 at Peak Classic

To try to increase the numbers of bigger bikes taking part in the Club Championship and also to try to cater for machines that seem to have been forgotten and the owners of which feel that rightly or wrongly they are at a disadvantage when riding against some of the more highly modified British Bikes around nowadays. We therefore decided to introduce the following changes for the 2016 season. We will along with bonus points for British bikes over 351 cc be introducing a class for bikes from the late 60ís and early 70ís that have been languishing in sheds and the only time they have seen the light of day recently is at shows. So dig out those old bikes that were so commonplace in those far off days and come along for a fun ride out with the Peak Classic Trials Club based in and around Matlock in the beautiful Derbyshire Peak District. The new class, which will be called Forgotten Era, has been sponsored by PB Trialsport who have donated the trophies for the Championship.

 

British Bikes

From January 1st 2017 all riders of machines in this class over 351cc will receive 2 bonus Championship points per event in addition to their normal Championship points score. This applies to all routes.

 

From January 1st 2017 all riders of rigid machines in this class will receive 3 bonus Championship points per event in addition to their normal Championship points score. This applies to all routes.

 

NEW CLASS

Forgotten era.

 A class for twinshock machines from the late 60ís and early 70ís that have been passed over and were considered uncompetitive for use in the current Twinshock class. Eligible machines to use the following engines.

 

Jawa, Minarelli, Puch, Sachs, Suzuki and Zundap

 

Manufacturers

Alta, Cotton, Dalesman, Dot, Gaunt, Greeves, McLaren, Saracen, Sprite and Wassell

Also eligible will be Pre 70 model year  Bultaco 4 and 5 speed, Pre 70 model year Montesa and OSSA, Pennine only.

 

Bikes to be generally as produced. Handlebars, levers, controls and footrest position may be altered. Current trials tyres, no tubeless allowed unless used with a tube, and shocks can be used. Plastic mudguards also allowed. Alloy rims allowed. Hubs and front forks to be era specific although internal mods are allowed i.e. springs, damping and brake materials. No discs drum brakes only.

 

To be held mainly over the Clubman route but if riders so desire then bonus points of 3 for Classic Intermediate, 5 for Intermediate, 7 for Classic Expert and 9 for Expert route in addition to their Championship points score on the route. All as current Over 60ís Championship.

 

If you are unsure about machine eligibility then please ask the Clerk of the Course / Trials secretary prior to the start of the event. Machines that contravene the eligibility criteria will be moved to the Twinshock class of the relevant route and will therefore score Twinshock Championship points.
