General principle:
Rules are based on so called production bikes. A class for factory bikes or replicas of factory bikes is determined by a
production bike with similar technical characteristics. For example, if characteristics X was in a factory bike in year Y but in a production bike in year Z, the bike will go to class according to year Z.
In class A this is interpreted more flexible as bikes were often "hand made".

Technical issues:

The bike must have parts only from the correct timeperiod or new parts which are made with same charasteristics. Carburator can be newer but it must have round slide and to be as close to original as possible. Carburator with flat slide is allowed in bikes that had such originally. No carburators with accpump in A/B-classes. 

If the bike has newer parts than it originally had, it belongs to class according to these newer parts. For example, bike with motor from 1975 assembled in frame from 1972 goes to class C.

Folding footrest in all solo classes. All bikes must have silencer. In paddock there must be a carpet under every bike to prevent soil pollution from oil & gasoline leaks. Stop-button is recommended for A/B-class, in other classes it is mandatory. Each team must have at least one min. 6 kg fire extinguisher in the paddock.


Class A:      front 180 mm, rear 130 mm measured vertically
Class B:      front 180 mm, rear 130 mm measured vertically
Class C:      no maximum measures but the suspension must not be better than was available in 1980 models. Parts from 1981 are forbidden even if they were available in 1980.
In classes A and B shocks with dual function (so called gas- or airshocks) are allowed.
Shocks with external reservoir are not allowed in classes A and B.
Front fork max. diameter 36mm in classes A and B.
Bikes with monoshock must have suspension structure like original (all classes).

All riders must have a racing licence including insurance. Rider must have a EU accepted helmet with mouthguard, back and shoulder protector, motocross boots and long-sleeved shirt and pants. Riding gears, especially in classes A/B/C should not have bright, modern colours.


Races may be held together with modern bikes. Classes can be combined to one race but the results are counted separately. Race consists of practice (length is determined by local organizer, normally 15 minutes) and two heats which are 10 minutes + 2 laps. Pre-Race lap (also called as Sighting lap) as per decision of competition manager, normally only for A/B-class.
