Help us save UK Motorsport 





Following the landmark ‘Vnuk’ case, the European Court of Justice has ruled that national laws must be changed to ensure that all mechanically propelled vehicles are insured for third-party losses regardless of type of use, in all places, at any time.

This applies to everything from Formula One racing cars, to mobility scooters, to antique trams and everything in-between (obviously includes all forms of motorcycle sport). The UK Government opened a consultation on Wednesday 21st December, seeking views on two proposed ways forward. You can read more here: www.fightvnuk.co.uk

So how can you help? We have started a petition asking that HM Government under no circumstances implements the 'Vnuk' judgement in a way that encompasses vehicles involved in motor and motorcycle sport activities.

Website: www.fightvnuk.co.uk

Petition: http://bit.ly/2i6Cgsf

Can I ask you please to sign the petition to show the Government the strength of support we have in Motorcycle sport and then please disseminate this email as far and as wide as you can to all the Membership and likewise encourage all our Licence Holders and anyone you know who rides motorcycles/enjoys the sport as a competitor/official/spectator to sign the petition.  


Please remember that you cannot ride in your home NKTC club championship event and must observe or help your club to set out the course,

you must also observe or offer to help a second NKTC club to set out the course for their event.


The course format for clubs is 4 laps of 10 sections or 3 laps of 15 sections.


We have several clubs who are not blessed with a large membership and without help from NKTC clubs, events

will not be observed and we will not have a meaningful championship. 

Please let the Secretary of each club that you intend to offer your services know by the Wednesday before the week end of the trial

give them a call by phone or message on their email, the online entry system will accept observers at no charge and

other entrants can easily see who else is observing. Any questions contact the Secretary for the event.

NKTC Championship Series 2016 please read


The final aggregates for the 2015 NKTC championship are calculated under the usual method of 7 rounds out of 8, riders are not able to ride in their home club event.

Early in 2015 we realised that some smaller clubs were unable to provide enough observers for their event and at a NKTC meeting clubs agreed that riders in the championship would be required to observe or help at one other event as well as their home clubs. As this was introduced mid season it proved too difficult to determine who had observed or helped clubs run their event and we decided that final aggregates for 2015 would be decided as usual.

Final aggregates can be found here

However at our meeting clubs agreed that we would formalise our approach to riders observing and helping clubs who require help. Riders who compete in our championship must observe or help their home clubs event as usual, and must also observe or help other clubs events during the year, each club Secretary will provide after their event, a schedule of observers and helpers which will be published along with the 2016 points. All riders will be able to see on this website where help may be needed. Some clubs may not require help and if you are offering help please check with the club secretary rather than just turn up. No rider will be able to win their championship class if they have not observed or helped at their home club. Most riders have done the right thing and helped clubs to provide observers for their trial and it has allowed us to run a proper championship. We are all going to have to accept that if you ride in the NKTC series you must help/observe as a minimum two trials each year. For the 2016 season we will have 10 points scoring events as we have an invite to the Sunbeam Star Group trial in Feb for points but no awards.

to allow the riders to observe NKTC events 8 of the rounds will count for the final aggregates ie as a minimum you will observe or help at 2 NKTC trials


Also can all riders decide on which class they wish to compete in and stick to it for the year as it will allow clubs to know who they are setting out the course for.


Any questions on this can be discussed at our extra event in Jan run by the Bexleyheath club
