4. FAQs and Other information
There are no sidecar sessions planned as, in accordance MSV rules, all passengers would be required to have a full ACU racing license. This proved to be unpopular with the sidecar entries last year and the sessions were scrapped at the last minute. If you wish to enter a sidecar and have a passenger with a full ACU racing license let me know at email@example.com. If we have enough to warrant a session we may squeeze one in. Road sidecars are not allowed on track days at all.
NEW for 2022 - All riders must be wearing a full-length back protector.
