The AMCA's Championship classes will be redefined for the 2019 series with a move away from the established MX1, MX2, Vets, 2-Stroke and Youth 85 classes. Keen to capitalise on the growth and improvements already made to the championships in recent years, the AMCA have announced that the MX2 class will now include 250cc 2-strokes and a dedicated 125 2-stroke only (inc. 150 2 strokes) class will replace the existing 2-stroke class.
This will result in a championship event day consisting of five classes; MX1, MX2 (including 250cc 2-strokes), Vets, 125 and Youth 85. The AMCA believe this better caters for the ever-changing demands of their membership.
Additionally the championship will become a ten-round series as the hunger for championship quality events increases. In previous years the number of rounds has fluctuated from seven to nine, but increasing the number to ten is sure to keep attention focussed until the end of the season. Dates and venues will follow in due course but in demonstrating an early focus on the 2019 season this looks set to be the next step in the ever improving AMCA Championship powered by Datatag and supported by Dunlop.
Speaking to Suzanne Potts, AMCA's general manager, she said "We're very keen to get a head start for the 2019 championship, we have raised the profile significantly in recent years and we see a ten-round championship with a revamping of the classes as the next step in the development of our flagship series."
This will hopefully bring a few more people to the AMCA and shake things up a bit. Keep an eye out on the AMCA website for dates and fixtures for the remaining championship and going into 2019. In the meantime, see you at Hawkstone Park in a couple of weeks!
