Class definitions:
Pro – aimed at current NL second strings and reserves plus displaced NL heat leaders, riders displaced from the top two leagues from 2018 or earlier plus others who feel able to challenge for the top title. Riders excluded from the championship (but eligible to ride without qualifying for the title/trophies) are those who are either riding in the top two leagues or have an official average above 3.00 in the top two leagues during 2019. Also ineligible in 2021 are those who are riding in the NL in 2021 with a 2019 NL average above 7.

Open – aimed at displaced/retired league riders plus all other open class standard riders. No NL Team place in 2021 (or a 2019 NL average of over 5.00) or top two league in 2018-19.

Support – aimed at MDL/SDL/NJL standard riders who haven’t had NL chances or ridden in the Open Class

Formula 2 – this is an adult class where engines used are not ‘speedway’ engines but typically ‘MX’ engines up to a capacity of 500cc. The late, great Pete Seaton, came up with the class and produced several bikes to compete. As long as there are riders who want to ride in this ‘low maintenance’ class we will run it in Pete’s honour.
