About Sunshine State Vintage Motocross Club:
The Sunshine State Vintage Motocross Club, Inc. is a non-profit organization promoting Vintage Motocross in the State of Florida. We were founded on the simple principal of, “FOR THE RIDERS, BY THE RIDERS!” We offer a great family atmosphere with competitive racing for all bikes, ages and skill levels ! We have incorporated new ideas and classes into the established sport of vintage motocross to give it a fresh new feel !! Tired of the cut-throat competition?  Think your bike is too old? Think you are too old? How would you like to start racing, or continue racing, with an organization that is based around having a good time at the track, with a family atmosphere? How would you like to be able to have a say in the direction of the program? If you answered YES to these questions, then we are the organization for you !! The BEST thing about our organization is the fact that every member has a say in the direction of the program!!

 

If/when a rider reaches 572 points then it is optional for him/her to move up to the next class level
(Beginner rider to Intermediate class or Intermediate rider to Expert class).  This is optional, however
if the committee feels that this rider is well beyond the level/speed of the others in that class then the
committee may require that they move up to the next class sooner than reaching 572 points.  Double point events will not count towards this total.

Race points distribution

-Points will be given per moto.  If you do not complete one lap of a moto, you will not score any points for that moto.  The highest combined points will determine the overall winner and remaining  positions.  Points will be distributed as such per moto….  A DNS will net 0 points

1st = 25 pts             6th = 15 pts             11th = 10 pts           16th = 5 pts

2nd = 22 pts             7th = 14 pts             12th = 9 pts             17th = 4 pts

3rd = 20 pts             8th = 13 pts             13th = 8 pts             18th = 3 pts

4th = 18 pts             9th = 12 pts             14th = 7 pts             19th = 2 pts

5th = 16 pts             10th = 11 pts           15th = 6 pts             20th = 1 pts

Highest point accumulation at end of season wins championship but must have run 7 rounds in that class.

Bonus points

The last two rounds (12 & 13) will be worth double points (Dirtfarm & Cross Road MX)
Gate position picks
For classes with less than 7 riders, gate pick will be first come first serve.

For the second moto, the gate pick will be determined by first moto finish.  If multiple classes on the     gate then the 1st place rider of each class is called up then the 2nd place rider in each class is called,etc…

Any shock absorber may be used, providing the technology and design was commercially available in 1975 or earlier.  Piggyback reservoirs and external rebound adjusters are allowed.

ENGINES: Any modification must be period specific.  This would include reed valves, Liquid-cooled components are prohibited. 3) Hydraulically-assisted clutches are prohibited.
