CMC’s Sideways Scramble 3 Rules

“We still need rules, but we will still have fun”

Geoff has been working with ACTMCC to make this event happen and hence they have advised us on the rules and regulations required. The aim is to look after the well being of all our entrants.

MOTORCYCLE REQUIREMENTS

  • For bikes over 85cc 2-stroke and 150cc 4-stroke, we recommend using a trials tyre or a dual sport tyre, not a Motocross Tyre.
  • Knobby tyre definition: If you cut one of the ‘knobs’ off the tyre and could fit it in between the gap of two other knobs then it is suitable. If you cut one of the ‘knobs’ off the tyre and it would not fit in any gap on the tyre then this tyre is preferred.
  • Side and centre stands must be removed
  • All glass, lights and indicators must be taped over
  • Bar ends must be plugged
  • Handlebar levers must have ball ends
  • Front sprockets must have chain guards
  • The sound must not exceed 95db
  • All bikes must have some sort of exhaust silencer fitted
  • Throttle must be self-closing
  • A kill switch must be attached to the bike (key off is fine)
  • Tyre tread must be at least 1mm deep
  • Valve caps must be present on all tyre tube stems
  • Bikes must have a working brake (minimum rear only)
  • Either a rear mudguard or a seat must be fitted which extends at least 20 degrees to the rear of a vertical line drawn through the rear wheel axle
  • No trikes, sidecars or quads are permitted
  • No ‘sissy’ bars

For the riders, it’s about getting an inappropriate, old or otherwise motorcycle and having the best damn time on the track! It’s not about going the fastest. Rather it’s about getting out with friends for some good old-fashioned fun on whatever rig you can wrangle for the day.
