The forthcoming Eastern Centre handbook will have all dates, fixtures and Eastern Championship rules.
A few slight changes for 2020 which should be noted:
- For the benefit of recording points, twostroke machines up to 250cc will be classed as MX2 machines. Over 251cc twostrokes will be classed as MX1 machines.
- The 2020 Eastern junior champion will automatically be upgraded to expert status in the following year, regardless of how many grading points accrued.
- A new trophy will be awarded annually to the best expert rookie, kindly donated by HRM Boilers of Attleborough.
- As the ACU British Championships, there is to be no stopping on the circuit during free practise or timed qualification.
