The Rally Raid category is now a NO GPS class open to ANY bikes. This will be the first class off the line.
There is still a Modern Open class which is exactly the same except allowing GPS.
This is a bit of an experiment to see how many entries we get in each. If nobody signs up in Modern Open and runs Rally Raid instead then we will consider expanding the NO GPS to other categories.
The request for NO GPS categories is primarily from bikes rather than cars so for now, all car categories can still use GPS.
We will also attempt to provide roll charts for this Sept event.
And we are looking at more ways to separate cars and bikes including split courses (routes where bikes go one way, cars another, opens the possibility to give the bikes some real single track).
We have also reduced the number of bike categories to this list:
Rally Raid - NO GPS, Open to any bike. This is the top class.
Modern Open - Any bike
Modern Lites - 250 2-st, 400 4-st
Vintage Open - 1993 and earlier
Vintage Lites - 1993 and earlier, 250 2-st, 400 4-st
50+ all riders 50+ any bike
Electric bike, no internal combustion engine
