Veteran, Vintage and Classic Motorcycle Test Day

VMCC Track Day

VMCC Test Day Jurby Circuit 30th August 2022

The VMCC Test Day will run on Tuesday 30th August 2022 as part of a Mini-Jurby Day following the conclusion of Manx Grand Prix Racing the previous day. The aim is to provide a structure which will encourage the inclusion of less experienced on-track riders and those on slower machines by providing a non-threatening environment whilst not alienating those who wish to go faster on period racing or later model machines. Riders will self nominate to ride in one of three groups divided according to ability and/or speed of machine. Sidecar entries are permitted and will run on track with solo machines.

The event will run under a NORA92 permit, hosted as usual by Andreas Racing Association and organised by SL Events and based on our well proven three class structure This is exactly as previous Test Days organised by the VMCC IoM Section over several years. All machines must be over 25 years old. Riders on this occasion do not necessarily need to be current VMCC members.

The Regulations and One-Event Licence forms are now available on the VMCCIoM website: www.vmcciom.org

Riding Groups will be divided generally as follows, subject to the approval of the appointed Judges of Fact. This list is not exhaustive:

Group A: Vintage, Veteran and pre 1940 road machines. Novice track riders. Strictly no undertaking

Group B: Those riders not included in Groups A and C.

Group C: Experienced riders of race machines from the ’60s to 1997 and larger capacity later model road machines.

Riders may wish to seek guidance from the Judges of Fact regarding which Group to enter. Riders adjudged to be in the wrong Group will be black flagged and reassigned.

Riders will be required to wear one-piece or zip-together leathers and an ACU Gold Stamp Helmet.

Entries are open now and will close at 12.00 noon on Sunday 28th August 2022.  The entry fee is £50 per rider or £50 for a sidecar outfit.
