RIP Steve Anderson
It is with great sadness that I convey the passing of Steve Anderson on Sunday September 28th.
Steve was a popular member of PCRA and one of the founding members of the Period 6 750 class. Newly crowned Champion of Period 6 750, Steve was also posthumously crowned National Champion at Lakeside after winning the first 2 races and leading in the final race before cruelly being taken from us. Our thoughts go out to Sandra and Jesse and 2 boys. PCRA is setting up a trust for contributions and details will be announced as soon as it is set up.
If you would like to make a contribution while we are still forming the trust account, you can pay into the PayPal account we've set up under firstname.lastname@example.org

2014 Championship Standings after Round 5
Please check your results and report any errors or omissions to email@example.com
IMPORTANT - MOMS changes for 2014
There are changes to MOMS which are under review by our eligibility team. The main changes affect Period 6. We will allow machines to run at Round 1 according to 2013 rules, changes must be implemented immediately after Round 1 and will be enforced at BSFOS and Round 2 of PCRA Club Championship onwards. Please ensure your machines comply.
Period 6 and Premodern machines MUST run a catch tray, this applies to all machines irrespective of whether they run fairings or not.
To all Riders
When completing your race entries, please ensure you enter your bike in the CORRECT class and race. Do not assume Jan will sort it out. If you don't know which class you bike is in, contact someone on the committee. This is especially important for P6 / Pre Modern riders and Buckets.
Also note, you can not cross enter a P6 bike into Pre Modern. By mistake we allowed that at round 1 but this will not be allowed in future, and the round 1 PM results will be changed to remove the P6 bikes from the points.
Cross entering is only allowed within the same 'period' by moving up a capacity class.
P6 now is an MA recognised historic class and at the PCRA we don't mix historic classes with modern classes. The PCRA will now be looking to develop the Pre Modern class in its own right which won't happen if it is full of P6 bikes.
Note that Non-Championship events like Barry Sheene Festival of Speed are not subject to this ruling.
