The 2017 series will again be sponsored by the AMCA and Classic Dirt Bike magazine. This year there will be 7 rounds, all hosted by AMCA clubs.

The championship will be split into two categories - Pre-65 and Pre-74.

The Pre-74 category will include ELIGIBLE Japanese machines (see page 15 AMCA Classic Rule Book) plus Pre-74 British & European bikes of the period e.g. CZ, Husqvarna, Bultaco, and square-barrel BSA Victors and BSA B50.  

The Pre-65 category will include round-barrel Victors and BSA B40, plus Tribsa, Mark 3 & 3A Metisse (pre-unit & unit), ESO & Jawa (2-valve 4-strokes) 250/360 twin-port CZ, bolt-up Husqvarna, plus other British & European 4-strokes of the period.  

At each meeting the championship event will be an invitation event. Invitations will be given to the best riders in the two categories taken from the entry list provided by the Secretary of the Meeting. The list of invited riders will appear in the programme. Pre-registration is not necessary.

Time permitting, and with the club’s agreement, there will be two championship races for each category at each meeting. Failing that the categories will be combined and race together with separate results. Each race 15 minutes plus 1 lap. Every race will count towards a rider’s final points total. Points will be awarded down to 15th place.
