Righto, planning to turn up at wildtracks but i have the spreadsheet of points in front of me and not sure what class is what.

What is aircooled a? minimum/maximum age? bike spec?

Aircooled b? minimum/maximum age? bike spec?

Senior 4.2? You get the idea.

Cheers. :)

Let us know your age,weight and bike and we will try to inform you on what class you will be in.
Do not just turn up, phone to book in first as some grids are pretty full.

I'm 63kg, standard 4.2, and i'm 15.

Would also like to know what my brother would be in, hes 13, rides a standard 4.2, and hes 45kg (around that)

Cheers.

EDIT: please tell me (if i am applicable for more than one) which one i would be more suited to!

why not just put up a list of the different classes etc... surely it would make it easier for everyone

eg.
Class a = bikes of blah std spec, rider less than 70 pies
Class b = bikes of blah std spec, riders more than 70 pies
Class c = bikes of blah, modified etc, all weights etc

simple I would of thought

Providing your bike is standard and not a modified 4.2 in anyway you'll be in the senior standard 4.2 class in the lightweight weight split.

Just had a look at the regs we got sent for the southerns and it says
Junior b min age 10 max 12 so you cant ride that class
so you would be in the 4.2 class which i believe at present as no weight split, but i think they are looking at reviewing this due to the large grids they are getting. you will need to book in and speak to phoenix to confirm this.

As i said i was not sure on the weight split but there must be one, i would still advise you phone to book in to make sure you get a grid position

The weight split is being debated at the moment as the class is constantly growing.

Ok then, so me and my brother will both be riding in 4.2 senior. Does this class include 6.2s and elites as well as the standard 4.2s?

seems sensible to me to find out what class your going to be in before phoning up phoenix and using up there valuable time just to ask..

No they are the organisers and decide what class you go in, i agree you should have a good idea what class you are going in but with the unexpected numbers this year at present it is a bit up in the air so we (the forum users) can only try and help out.
Only trying to help

Ok so what i need to know is how old do you have to be to ride in 4.2 seniors? Damn this is confusing! :banghead:

Cheers for the input anyways :)

The Regs State that senior air cooled is min age 13, so that is 13 and over and i would imagine the 4.2 class is the same as junior b only goes upto max 12. but standard 4.2 was not reinstated until after the regs were drawn up so you will need to ring pheonix.

At 14 he'll be in the seniors.
On a blata elite he will be in the aircooled class.
depending on weight, if he's over 75kg he'll be in aircooled B
under 75kg he'll be in aircooled A
