I take it you are talking about Pre 78 as the Pre 75 rules haven’t changed.

Why will, as you term it “ average punter “ be disadvantaged because the suspension level has been lifted 1 1/2” ?

We have 2 Pre 78 bikes that will remain 9” and won’t feel disadvantaged at all.

I will be there. Interesting rule change for pre 78 good to see common sense win over. I can now put my CR husky back to standard and get the balance right, I will keep my KTM as it is with 10"
BigK did you help get this rule change in?

My 2c opinion re the pre '75 class... go for the simplest option: As a starting point anything that is as per the original manufacturer spec is legal. That way all unmodified bikes are legal, nothing for the happy vintage racer to do in order to compete.

If there is concern about competition across brands perhaps allow competitors so inclined to modify their machine to match a nominated spec. For example a '73 maico (or whatever) could be altered to '74 specs (or whatever).

Those two basic ideas allow both easy access to the class and room for the tinkerers to tinker. You know, same as it was back in the day.  :-)

It would appear there is no camping at the track, I like the camping stuff and the comradery that it provides , but I am also OK with soft warm bed, Is there a local that rider refresh themselves?

If you actually read the promotion blurb, it states huge camping area.  I have confirmed that camping is free of charge.

That's correct Mick. There is a huge flat camping area that runs down the whole length of the track overlooking it and you can see 70-80% of the action. There is hot showers and the canteen the track runs is the best on the NSW VMX circuit. This facility is a National Standard facility. A few years back they ran a round of the Modern Nationals with all the semis etc.

The operator of the faciility is super excited we chose his venue for this and is creating a track layout specifically for this event that will have fast flowing corners, and VMX friendly obstacles. The Heaven VMX members are pumped and all of a sudden the Post Classic riders are scrounging to find EVO bikes to add to their stables.

Only official confirmation from Ken Swan or Heaven has any validity. I understand Heaven had a meeting last night so we can expect a notification shortly.

Cheers Ted, I've been staying off facetoilet. My tinfoil hats last three times as long now.
