2004 Maxxis UK Supermoto Championship


In response to several queries from many people regarding a statement issued by the ACU on July 22nd, we can confirm that this does not alter the position of the 2004 Maxxis UK Supermoto Championship. Dave Stewart CEO of the organising club BMCRC has issued the following, final statement:

"The latest clarification from the ACU (22 July) is clearly going to be welcome news to Supermoto competitors and teams alike.

I never had any doubt that the ACU were operating within the parameters laid out on the insurance pages of the current handbook (commencing on page 79).

Any inference that this was not the case certainly didn't come from me.

Sadly, my problem with Supermoto specifically originates on exactly those pages of the handbook. On page 80 in BOLD print (presumably to emphasise its importance) it states "It is a condition of the policies that ACU Codes, Regulations and Supplementary Regulations are observed and complied with. Failure to comply could prejudice the operation of the cover." The most important code is obviously the National Sporting Code. If there is any conflict between the other Codes and Regulations and the NSC, the NSC will prevail.

So, when it came to my attention that I was unable to run Supermoto in total compliance with the NSC, I had to make a decision. Could I get the NSC amended or should I cease to run Supermoto? The answer, unfortunately, is on page 2 of the NSC itself, paragraph 2 of 1.02: "The NSC should apply without modification."

It would only be of benefit to 'ambulance chasers' and those who wish to harm the sport if I detailed the areas that I feel I can't comply with. Others, more experienced in off-road disciplines, may feel that they can do so and I wish them every success. The ACU is a responsible organisation and if they are confident that those events for which they have already issued permits are in accordance with the NSC, I bow to their superior knowledge.

My own view as to my ability to comply however, remains unchanged".
