Reminder: At ACU events (all race meetings?) riders must present their ‘bike and themselves ready to race i.e. in leathers etc. to check safety wear fitting at scrutineering.

Proposal to change the ETBike cutoff from 8.70 to 8.90 was rejected by the tracks but discussion by some riders feel that this should be looked at again for 2018 when a case may be made if ETBike riders are not going faster than 8.90 or entries in 8.50 ‘bike are suffering.
