Bigger, better and building for the future - 2015 British Youth Nationals leads from the front
The 2015 British Youth Nationals are taking a giant step forward in how the championship will run from 2015, after lengthy meetings and consultations with the ACU, we can now release the new 2015 race format which coincides with our European and American counterparts.


The ACU British Youth National Championship is now recognised as the top youth event within the United Kingdom and to progress our riders and give them the same opportunities as the American and European riders, we shall now be adopting a similar race format as them for our 85SW and 85BW classes in 2015.


Youth racing in the UK needs to fall in line with the best championships in the world both here in Europe and in the USA, many of the UK’s fastest riders are set to race the 2015 European championship and take their own racing careers onto the next level.


Our future British champions are currently racing in the pinnacle of youth racing in the UK, the BYN is and will always be the breeding ground of Britain's brightest young prospects.


Gareth Hockey of RHL Activities had this to say, “It’s amazing and the whole team here at RHL are blown away with the response, the format is forward thinking and changes needed to be made to push the sport forward in the UK. The sport has turned a corner which means bigger and better things to come for everyone involved - exciting times for British Youth motocross.”


Changes will come into effect from round 1 of the 2015 championship..


New 2015 Race Format


85SW & 85BW race format:

Maximum of 60 entries for each class plus 5 reserve riders Equal division between A & B, in the Qualifying race, numbers dictated on race weekend A & B categorisation through random selection of numbers , which will be drawn by the rider or parent at scrutineering. Three classes after qualification 85SW 85BW Combined 85SW/BW
The advantage of this:

In line with European and American racing Everyone will get 6 races, 1 Qualifying race and 5 point scoring races Every rider will earn points and have the title of competing within the British Youth National Championship on their rider CV The positions will run from 1st – 60th with the points running from 60 – 1
