THE CHAMPIONSHIP WORTH FIGHTING FOR!

A presentation evening/end of year social/go karting, will be held on Friday 2nd November near Exeter.

The final round will be held at the renowned ‘Rifton Barton’ track which as all of the racers who have been around a while will testify is a fantastic venue, one which has taken us literally years to resurrect as a race track.

Get yourselves booked in early to avoid disapointment as this one will be busy as there are DOUBLE CHAMPIONSHIP POINTS available for this our final round. Current championship standings after 4 hard fought rounds here

This race is open to all, even those who haven’t been competing in the championship. This 3 race format is ideal for those who are coming to Enduro from Mx or returning after time off.

Helmets – Gold ACU Stickers

We have had an increasing number of new, branded helmets, failing scrutineering for our events because they do not have the gold ACU sticker on them. You know they are good quality safe helmets, as do we, but without the stricker we cannot let you ride. The reason being that if you then had a bad accident resulting in a head injury, and your “no win no fee” solicitor then tries to get you some “free money” by saying we are to blame for your accident, we would not have a leg to stand on in a court room. We don’t want to stop anyone from riding our events, but in these days of everyone trying to always hold someone responsible when an “accident” occurs, we have to cover ourselves.

This should actually be the case at any commercially run event that you enter.

The problem is only going to get worse as we all look around for cheap deals on helmets. The gold stickers are applied by the UK importer/distributor and not by the helmet manufacturer. Therefore if you purchase your helmet from a non UK website there is a good chance it will arrive without the relevant sticker applied. Your options then are to either send your helmet to the ACU with £15.00 and they will then apply the sticker and return it to you (pretty quick turnaround when I had to do it a couple of years back), or the sticker can be obtained from and applied by an FIM certified technical official.

So be aware you must have the gold ACU sticker on your helmet to pass through scrutineering at any of our race or practice days.
