Reminder regarding the ACU Tear Off’s Ban at All Motocross Events Starting from January 1st 2016

Reminder regarding the ACU Tear Off’s Ban at All Motocross Events Starting from January 1st 2016
After the announcement earlier in the year regarding the ban of Tear Off’s from the 1st January 2016 the ACU Motocross Committee would like to remind all riders and clubs. The ban has been imposed following a number of environmental concerns in recent years due to the increased use of Tear Off’s at Off-Road events which has led to the ACU being asked to reconsider the use of Tear Off’s across all Off Road Sporting events in the future.

With the increased restrictions to Land Access for Motorcycle events the Motocross Committee who are ever conscious of Environmental issues announce their decision to prohibit the use of  "tear off's" in all ACU Motocross events from January 1st 2016. This will be a stipulation in the relevant Standing Regulations as printed in the 2016 Handbook.

With many events taking place on private and countryside locations, it has long been an issue with farmers and land owners who use the land for multiple purposes and for this reason the ruling will be as follows:

“Tear Off” lenses on goggles are prohibited. A system where the transparent plastic lenses are retained within the device and are not discarded is allowed.”
