The Heaven VMX Club of NSW is pleased to annouce the club has taken on the challenge to run the 2020 Australian National 'Classic' Motocross Championships
Our club has a rich history in these older eras and the timing is right for the club to bring this prestigious event to NSW.

Dates: July 10, 11 & 12, 2020

Venue: Nowra Motoplex, NSW
Specially Prepped to be Classic Motocross friendly!
Huge camping area overlooking the track
Close to the town of Nowra

(The Nowra Motoplex is under new management this year and the new management are 'friends of the sport'. The Nowra circuit will be completely re-vamped specifically for this meeting with jumps rounded off or bypassed. The dirt is sandly and loamy and when it gets wet, gets better!)

More info to come, in the mean time book that time off for this very exciting event!

Absolutely fantastic to see Kenneth & the Heaven club put their hands up to host the 2020 Classic MX titles & no doubt the club will present a stellar track to suit all machinery from pre 1960 through to Evolution classes. The pre 1978 class has had some sensible changes for 2020 (see chapter 11 in the MoMS) with the suspension restrictions adjusted (no longer will you have to restrict a standard 1977 model to comply), making it simpler for anyone wanting to race this iconic class. This event will also see Heaven MX club crown the inaugural (first ever), NATIONAL AUSTRALIAN CHAMPION in the Evolution 4 stoke class, which is new for 2020 & beyond. There are other exciting things in the mix which will only enhance the event so make a note of the date & set it aside. Tell your mates, your mates mates (don't for get to tell your wife) & get on it to be a part of Classic Motocross history in the making.
Cheers,
K

Fantastic news about Nowra, holidays booked, we'll be there!
Also good news to hear that common sense has finally prevailed regarding the 9" rule in Pre 78 too. Pity about the time and money we all spent putting spacers in our 77 YZ-D models to restrict the travel....I certainly never noticed any difference!
Personally I think that modified suspension ( long travel) Pre 75 models should also be allowed in Pre 78, ( and YZ360B's should also be there), but that's just my opinion.

Great news about pre 78 suspension rule change to allow a standard pre 78 bike to compete without spacers to reduce the suspension travel.

Would be good if the pre 75 rules were the same so pre 75 bikes could be run as they were factory made without having to fit spacers

Exactly. They’ve set a precedent now so if I had a Pre 75 I’d be demanding it.

There is a process for such things which is much more productive than discussion on social media. Go to MA website, download the form & get them in. Rule change submissions will be reviewed in March.

What Pre 75 models came with too much travel?

These travel under the radar.

Pre75 bike with probably the most rear wheel travel are the Joe Maxwell 1974 CCM copies.

According to percom with Joe they are built with a minimum of 6.5" at the rear and according to anecdote and observation some have well over that.
If you love it, lube it.
