There are important changes to the Youth B and C classes for 2019.

The riders will progress to the B class from the C class a year earlier than previous years. The riders will now ride 2 years in the C class and then 3 years in the B class.

The B class riders are eligible to ride a 125cc machine, but they will of course be allowed to compete on a smaller capacity machine in this class.

Any youth who is upgraded to a higher route will have to ride the capacity of machine appropriate to their age.

Would parents and Club Secretaries please take note when applying for youth licences for 2019?
