Some information on racing with the AMCA.

(I will be adding to this, so if you have any questions, please e-mail me) UPDATED January 2009

LICENCES (see above for costs)

All riders who wish to compete in AMCA Motocross events must be in possession of an AMCA Licence.
A rider who wishes to apply for an AMCA Competition Licence must be a paid up member of one AMCA affiliated club (e.g. BHMCC) that organises motocross events.

Licence application forms are available from Affillitaed Clubs whose Secretary should sign to confirm the applicant is a member of the Club. No rider can be a member of more than one affiliated Club for the purpose of competing in Modern Motocross events.

All licences expire on January 31st each year, a late renewal fee is charged after 1st March (this only applies if an AMCA licence was held the preceding year).


Minimum age is 11 years old.
Riders aged 11 to 13 to ride in the Inter Junior Class [*65cc minimum to* 85cc maximum (or 150cc 4-stroke)]
* note The AMCA rulebook states 60cc Auto's and 65cc machines will NOT be allowed
Riders aged 11 to 13 may only be upgraded in exceptional circumstances and only then with parental/guardians written agreement
14 and 15 year olds may be included in the Inter Juniors, but will normally ride in the Junior Class,
(some weekends there is an under 18 125cc Junior class and an over 18 125cc Junior class) and will be upgraded using the normal system.
13-16 year olds restricted to MX2 class (maximum 145cc 2-stroke or 250cc 4-stroke)
note: 13-14 year olds on MX2 machines are NOT eligible to ride in the Inter Juniors

Sidecar drivers and passengers minimum age of 14 years.


Inter Juniors. Restricted to 11 to 14 year olds on 85cc (125cc 4-stroke) machines.
(15 year olds may be included in special circumstances)
Limited class - Up to 145cc 2-stroke and 250cc 4-stroke.
Open class - Over 145cc 2-stroke and over 251cc 4-strokes

Depending on the number of riders entered in each capacity class they may be combined forming an Unlimited cc race of Juniors, Seniors and Experts.
Ages 14 upwards. Ages 13 to 16 are limited to a maximum of 150cc (or 250cc 4-stroke).
On race-day there is usually a class for Inter Juniors, Limited class Juniors , Open Class Juniors, Limited class Seniors, Open class Seniors, Limited Experts and Open class Experts.
At some meetings the Limited Junior class is split as under 18 year olds and over 18 year olds, again this will mainly depend on the number of riders that are entered in each class and the decision is usually made by the hosting club.

Still confused about class capacities? Me too. no more 250cc class! but wait, also voted in at the 2008 AGM was this gem:

So there is a 250cc Class!? It's just that the only races will be 125 ( Limited) and Open Or Unlimited where everyone can ride on any cc machine.

So hooray for the 2-stroke championship - Sorry no 125's allowed!
