YPM Championships

YPMRC run 3 championships, National, Clubman and Rookie.

The championships do not run in line with the ACU licence level held by the rider. We run a different criteria to make it fair.

National: Everyone entered in the meeting is included in this championship.

YPM Clubman: Only for members that qualify for YPM clubman status. Must be a YPMRC paid up member.

YPM Rookie: YPM rookies only. No more than 4 racedays entered previously in any class. Must be a YPMRC paid up member.

So if your a rookie you are entered in the rookie and national championships. A clubman is entered in clubman and national championships. A rookie can not be entered in clubman. A national is only entered in the national championship.

YPMRC Rider Classification Regulations

1. YPM Clubman to YPM National Upgrade Rule as follows: (this is for YPM class purposes only – ACU regs applicable for your actual ACU licence upgrade)

• Minimum 10 signatures obtained on separate race days (max 2 signatures per weekend)

• Minimum 3 x separate circuits

• Finish time to be within 105% of the race winners time

• Must finish on the same lap as the race winner

• Results to be used – Season just completed plus two previous seasons ( so for 2019 season results from 2016,2017 and 2018 to set clubman / national status )

2. A Rookie will upgrade to a Clubman (except as per point 4 below) once they have completed their Rookie season and have done four or more race race days. This can be two full meetings, including a Club Bike weekend, or odd race days across a number of meetings.

3. If a rider wins the Clubman Championship but does not attain the criteria in point 1 above, they will still automatically be upgraded to YPM National Status, meaning a rider cannot defend a Clubman title.

4. A Rookie who achieves the criteria in point 1 above will automatically be upgraded to National without contesting the Clubman championship.

Supplementary Rules / Guidelines

a. Agreed that the Rules and guidelines for the administration of the YPMRC championship rules are brought in house via the current coordinator team.

b. There is a “no relegation” system in place. That is a rider who upgrades to clubman or national will not drop back to novice or clubman irrespective of results. ( exceptional cases will be considered by the coordinators ).

c. Returning Riders – A rider who has won the Overall YPM championship will always be classed a national rider irrespective of the year the title was won. A rider who was a front runner with a national licence within the last five years will return as a national rider. Riders returning after not racing in any class for over five years will return as a Clubman by default ( exceptional cases will be considered by the coordinators ).

d. The coordinators reserve the right to change a rider classification depending on race results and to keep the sub championships fair.

All orders will be held until the next production run. We are not currently offering postage options on orders. Any orders placed will need to be collected from a race meeting. Dismiss
