The main difference is going to be the 4.2 class. The Southern allow some machining, head skimming, crankcases matching and casting flash removal. The British don't.

Your best bet is to get a copy of the latest British and Southern rules then read them for yourself.

Well, maybe I'm missing something but I can't find 2007 British Regs (Seasons only 5 weeks away, no rush eh lol!!!). 2006 are there but lots has changed.

They have changed their classes to accommodate movement between the 2 big Championships, so they may also see the sense in harmonizing the rules.

Either way, they need to make it known pretty soon!!!

:yes: :yes:

I think I'm right in saying that there aren't really any Senior 4.2 rules for the British because it was a redundant class. The old regs suggest that Junior & Senior rules are the same, but I think the Juniors aren't allowed to run the old high comp head. As most Senior 4.2 Southerns riders have them fitted, it will be awkward to have to own both and swap between heads.:(

But just being told for sure would be good:yes:

As above lets hope someone from the British reads this and pulls their finger out!!!!!!!:)

There are no rules specific to each class listed by MMRA as yet.

But, both Championships now class 14yr olds and upwards as Seniors, Juniors therefore under 14.

The only exception (on minimotos) is that you are required to be 16+ to ride a Super.

Ed, the oompa loompa, is a staggering 38kgs but only a few months away from riding a super :wideeyed:

Unless they have changed the Junior age this year, it has been 16 in production for the last few years. This is what has put a lot of juniors off in the past. Ask Paul Baxter. (Wheely Kid). 15 years old and 14 stone, racing kids like Brad Ray.
Therefore Ed will be a junior...

Their website does have classes published and its all 14+ for Seniors, all as SEMRC, that was the reason I believe, to help people run in both Championships. The classes and ages are published, but not yet the rules, given that they've gone the 1st step, adopting the same rules seems sensible.

Solo Classes Update for 2007

2007 Race Classes Update


This is a fantastic step forward for the minimoto racers in the MMRA and is a move that should see a lot of riders come back to the series in 2007. It is what a large number of minimoto riders have asked for so we look forward to seeing a lot of old AND new faces in 2007. The BZM aircooled motor is still under review and will be dealt with as its full potential becomes known. Further details of any series changes will no doubt emerge in this forum and on the MMRA web site over the coming months but as a reminder for the minimoto riders, whilst the regs are put together, here are the classes that will be adopted for 2007 in The British...

* (1) Junior Lights 4.2 - 6 > 13yrs, up to 36Kgs
* (2) Junior Cadets 4.2 - 6 > 13yrs, 36kgs and over
* (3) Junior Prod A - 9 - 13yrs+ <36Kgs
* (4) Junior Prod B - 9 - 13yrs+ 36Kgs and over
* (5) 4.2 Senior A - 14yrs+ <75Kgs
* (6) 4.2 Senior B - 14yrs+ 75Kgs and over
* (7) Supers A - 16yrs or 14 years with ACU license 60k to 75Kgs
* (8) Supers B - 16yrs or 14 years with ACU license >75Kgs
* (9) Senior Prod A - 14yrs+, 60k to 75Kgs
* (10) Senior Prod B - 14yrs+ 75Kgs and over
* (11) Aircooled A - 14 years up to 75Kgs
* (12) Aircooled B - 14 years 75Kgs and over
* (13) Superlights - Production class for 14 years and over under 60k in weight

I'm sure that must be negotiable (or badly worded) think about it........

Firstly, he will have an acu licence and be riding a Conti with more HP, secondly, Danny Pedrosa weighs 58kg constipated and seems to handle 240bhp ok, so I'm sure the point could be forced home to allow him 15hp!!!!! ;)
