The ACU, along with promoter Octane Junkies and Luton & District Motorcycle club will join forces once again to host the ACU British Vet Motocross Championships in 2024 at the natural hillside Toddington MX track near Luton.

The inaugural event which took place in June 2023 was a huge success with over 300 riders attending from all corners of the country. There was a huge amount of positive feedback about the relaxed fun nature of the event along with the track preparation and efficient organisation, which the organisers intend to build on for 2024.

The ACU British Vet Championships gives older motocross riders the opportunity to race at an official ACU British Championship race meeting with the fastest riders having the chance to compete for an Official ACU British title. The event will take place on 1st and 2nd June 2024 at Luton and Districts home track Toddington. The natural hillside track which is located just off Junction 12 of the M1, provides an “old school” challenge that is enjoyable for riders of all ages and all skills. There are a variety skilled based classes for +30, +40, +50 and plus 60 competitors ensuring that riders get to race with people who are of similar speed and age to themselves, making the racing closer and more enjoyable for all. Eg If you are Over 50 you can either enter the Championship Class, the Intermediate Class or the Novice Class depending on your skill level.

What is it ?

A 2 day festival of racing dedicated to veteran (vet) riders of all ages and skill levels. There is a wide range of age based and skill based race classes to choose from with the bragging rights of being an ACU British Champion up for grabs for the best of the best in each age group.

All elements of the event are designed to suit vet racers, from the track choice and preparation to the off track entertainment. The focus is on making the most enjoyable and memorable event possible for the vet racers and their families that attend.

Who is it for?

This race meeting is for anyone over the age of 30 who can race a motocross bike. There are various race classes based on age and skill level.

The track

With this being a race meeting for Vet riders of all skill levels we wanted to make sure that the track we selected would be enjoyable, challenging, and safe for all of our racers. We also wanted to have this meeting as centrally located as possible to make it easily accessible for as many riders as possible. Toddington Motocross track is a traditional motocross track on the side of a hill next to the J12 of the M1.

The track is the home venue for the Luton and District Motorcycle club and has been in existence for around 20 years. The fast-flowing natural track has a combination of hill sections, fun but safe jumps and has a long lap which make it an ideal track for the British Vet Championships.

As it was in 2023 the track will be well prepared, watered and groomed before and during each day's racing to make sure it is always in an enjoyable condition to race on.
