I have a copy of the final results Noel & they have been posted on some FB pages, however I've had trouble trying to post them myself. Shoot me your email address & I can forward it to you.

Evolution is an extremely popular class & belongs in the classic titles. Without evolution the riders numbers would have been ordinary at best. It's up to the hosting clubs as to how they run the age groups & it's been done successfully both ways in years past. The hosting club decided to do all powers age groups in this instance, in attempt to award the largest number of Australian titles they possibly could. Of all the classes at the event, only 4 did not reach the required competitor numbers to attain title status. This would have been different had there been age group capacity classes. I'm an average rider & rode a 350cc bike in evolution 50-59 all powers, finished 6th overall out of 24. I went past bigger capacity bikes and am sure their were smaller capacity bikes ahead of me. I also rode a 400cc bike in pre'75 50-59 and had a couple of good battles with a guy on a Honda CR125M. Engine size doesn't really matter & if you got a place, you know you earned it. It's impossible to keep everyone happy, perhaps BMCC will adopt the age group/capacity class way for 2019.

At this stage it's only the 2 x 30-39 age groups & side cars. There is not a women's class due to no entries. All others are good to go for Aus titles.

108 entries, with all but a very few classes making the numbers required for championship status. The weather forecast is looking perfect, so all go for a very successful event.

Entries are coming in steadily but only 21 days till entries close on Sept 5th for this event. Don't leave it till the last minute, get them in the mail by Sept 2nd at the latest unless you intend using express post (do it today though).
Long range weather forecast couldn't be better, 15-18 degrees, mostly sunny over the 3 days.

X40 are for hard pack, they are good  for their purpose. I have had better results on varying terrain with X30 (intermediate) & have found them to be very reliable with good hook up & reasonable wear rate.  I ride a good mix of  terrain with lot's of rocks thrown in just for the fun of it, they are my "go to" tyre. The X30 front is very predictable & holds on way longer in it's wear life compared  to Dunlop Geomax. I have some guys who religiously use X20 (soft) fronts everywhere, they don't have any complaints, although they do mostly ride wet, sloppy crud. The "new" (not so new now) X series Bridgestones are a definite improvement over the "old" 403/404 series.
Cheers,

I used 2002 Yamaha YZ250 clutch plates in a 1986 GS500, may be the same as your 250? You're a touch out of luck, I have an '84 250 here which is getting parted out & I only sold the complete clutch assy last week.

140 or so photos on Facebook (Victorian Classic management) from a meeting they had at the same track as where the nats are being held, on the weekend. The weather was ordinary but everyone interested should take a look.

Entries for this event are coming in exceptionally slow, so much so the event is in jeopardy of not going forward. If you intend to compete at this event get your entry in now, don't wait.
