ACU 125cc Two Stroke Class Amended for 2017 Motocross Events

The ACU Motocross Committee have decided after lengthy deliberation that the current youth age groups and capacity allowance is amended for 2017.

125 Start

To bring a Youth class more in line with FIM Europe the following proposal has been agreed by the ACU Insurers and Motocross Committee. The Motocross Committee feel that this is a practical rule change and does not create any safety issues.

The Youth Motocross Classes will include a new class 125cc two stroke class 13 years – 17 years Youth 125cc Minimum 120cc 2 stroke maximum 125cc 2 stroke Manual clutch, 19 inch rear 21 inch front wheel.

In reality it is allowing a rider of 13 years of age the opportunity to race a 125cc machine with riders up to the maximum age of 17 years.

This is an option for a 13 year old and not compulsory as they can remain on a Big Wheel 85cc for a further 2 years if desired.

Brian Higgins commented:

 “I feel this is a positive move and the MX Committee have considered this from all aspects. It is quite a large step from an 85cc to a 250F machine and this optional class will allow for a year on the bigger frame machine which obviously handles differently.”
