With the prestigious ACU S3 Trials Championship due to kick off the 2017 season with the Colmore Trial on 12th February, the Trials and Enduro Committee are pleased to announce some major changes to this series.
The committee had concerns that the series had move away from its traditional "Clubman" roots and has taken steps to bring this great championship back within the range of the everyday competitor looking to enjoy some of the finest one day events in the country.
The second route, non-championship class has proved so successful that it has now become the largest group in this series and to this end the Trials and Enduro committee have agreed to make this into a championship alongside the full S3 Championship. This should also help to replace the Over 40 part of the series which was dropped last year. To help younger riders remain legal on the roads the 125cc class is also retained. Although poorly supported, this is a great class and is worth considering for riders aiming to climb through the ranks.
Any series is only as good as the individual events and the S3 series boasts many brilliant "proper" trials with a great geographical spread so for those of you looking to get out there and enjoy riding your bikes, this is the ideal opportunity to support the full series.
Often the ACU is accused of not listening to what the riders want but the Trials and Enduro Committee believe with these changes the series can return it to its former glory. The Trials and Enduro Committee are once again pleased to associate this series with the support of John Shirt Jnr and S3 Parts
