Clubs may include additional non-championship classes at any Centre Championship Trial they run on a no points basis, with Supplementary regulations indicating the Championship classes.

Event Entry

Entry for all Championship rounds should be processed via the ACU Sport80 platform.

On the day entries are not normally accepted, unless confirmed by the organising Club in the Supplementary Regulations.



For each round points are allocated as shown:

Best performance 20 points, then 17,15,13,11,10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2, and 1 for 15th place in each class.

Only the first 15 finishers in each class shall be awarded points.            

Points will not be awarded to “Out of Centre” entrants, or competitors riding out of class for one event.

The number of events to count in the core series for each competitor will be the total number of events in the series less two. (i.e., A rider finishing in all 9 core rounds would have their worst two scores deducted)

For the Pre-67 and Twin Shock classes the number of events to count in the series for each competitor will be the total number of events in the series (Twelve) less three.



Awards will be presented for the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places in each class. (Subject to a minimum class entry of ten in that class.)

Award winners and partners will be invited as complimentary guest of “The ACU Southern Centre” to an annual Awards Presentation in early 2025, to be presented with their awards.
