ATV: YOUTH CLASS RESTRICTION CLARIFICATION

An inquiry has been received with regard to new Amateur Rule B.5 which restates the pre-existing AMA Racing Rule prohibiting “A” class riders from competing in Youth classes, as it relates to ATV Schoolboy Sr riders. Given the skill level of riders in the ATV Schoolboy Sr division and the fact that there are little options for them to compete locally in non-AMA events other than “A” classes, the rule has been clarified to exclude riders under the age of 16 from this prohibition.

Accordingly, Section B.5 of the 2017 GNCC Amateur Competition Rules is amended as follows: 

5. Youth Classes:  No “A class” riders are permitted to compete in any “Youth” classes.  AMA Racing Rule, Section 2.1.E.1.e.  Hence,Youth riders are prohibited from competing in any “A” division in any non-GNCC off-road event/series. For purposes of clarification, this restriction does not apply to the ATV Schoolboy Sr. division, so long as the rider is under 16 years of age and does not receive a cash prize.
