If you have any views on the proposed rule changes, please get back to me or your state Historic management Committee and give us your concerns or support.
Thanks

Most of the problems with historic racing have occurred because of running two-strokes in the same races as four-strokes. While historic race classes are based only on date of manufacture and capacity, that is never going to change.
If you look back a bit, Brice Kinnersley used to run his 250 Montesa in Period 3 against 350 Manxes and 7Rs. He was within the rules. He later had the decency to move to Period 4. There was a 125cc Bantam which was almost an RS125. And decent two stroke of 250cc will absolutely cream most four-strokes on a reasonably short circuit - that is most of our circuits. When you do that, anyone who has spent a bomb on a four-stroke will stay at home.

I love two-stroke races and I love four-stroke races. A few years ago I made a conscious choice. I sold a very good TZ350 to buy a decent gearbox for my Seeley Commando 850. Running a TZ350 is too expensive to waste it in races against four cylinder four strokes. I've only raced the Seeley a few times, but there have been two-strokes getting in my way with their different race lines. It is not what road racing should be about.

Some of the best road racing we have ever seen was in the late 60s and early seventies when everybody had small capacity two-strokes.

Historic racing is crap and always has been.

The seniors' meetings offer better value then historic. At least they are not all pansies who do not really want to race.
