Steel Framed 600 Regulations 2017
There appears to be a load of rubbish doing the rounds about massive changes to the regulations for the Steel Framed 600 Class at Darley Moor. Let me explain so that all riders can understand: There are no changes to the regulations for 2017.
Your machine must have a Steel Frame throughout, it must have the manufacturer's homologated fuel system, it can be rebored to the manufacturers maximum limits (1mm). In all other aspects it must comply to the 2017 ACU Formula Specifications.

Help us save UK Motorsport
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.
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.
