The decision to split the clubman championships into two separate championships follows enquiries from several riders.
Looking at the championship, it has become apparent that the Over 40’s would swamp the clubman class and the over 40 winner would also be the clubman champion, rendering the clubman class pointless and leaving two championships basically contested by the same people.
We are looking to encourage the younger riders to enjoy the traditional style trials in the S3 Parts series and believe that creating two separate championships was the way to achieve this as well as persisting with the 125cc class for the same reason.
As the Over 40 was something new to this year’s clubman series, this should be considered a tweak to the series rather than a major change, and was included with the best of intentions .
The amendments to the Colmore results followed an oversight by the club which was highlighted by several riders and they are now in line with the Trials Standing Regulations.
