The BHR/VMCC are starting a new race class in the UK, six race meetings over eleven days at circuits such as Cadwell Park, Mallory Park, Snetterton, Darley Moor and Lydden are planned for 2012.

BHR BEARS CLASSESBEARS Formula Two; 250 Two Strokes // 500 Four Strokes
BEARS Formula One; 251- 500 Two Strokes // 501- Unlimited Four Strokes

General;[/b] Bikes MUST be derived from a production road going motorcycle freely available to the public prior to 31st December 1985. No motorcycles derived from any form of original competition motorcycle will be eligible. All components must be British, European or American unless otherwise stated.

Frames; Free choice of frame, specials welcome as long as they are constructed to a type/design typically used before the cut-off date. Frames must be constructed from steel tube. Anyone building a new frame should submit the design to the eligibility team PRIOR to starting to build/modify same. Typical frames would be as used in Formula One, Two and Three series, Battle of the Twins and Sound of Singles racing pre 1986. Seats, Tanks Fairings and other bodywork must be of a type/style as used pre 1986. Japanese style fairings and seats are not eligible.

Forks ;
No ‘upside down’ forks. Hub centre steering type forks as used prior to 1986 will be eligible.

Brakes; No four-pot callipers and No Floating Discs unless fitted to the original road machine that the bike is derived from.

Brake Master Cylinder s; In addition to British and European master cylinders, the use of Japanese master cylinders of a type used prior to 1986 will be allowed.

Wheels/Tyres; Treaded Tyres only. The use of tyre warmers will not be allowed. 18’’ Wheels only in BEARS F2 class. BEARS F1 machines can utilise either 17’’ or 18’’ wheels due to the availability problems regards many popular wheels used on larger capacity bikes ‘in period’. Many early magnesium (Dymag, Campagnolo etc) wheels are now in poor metallurgical condition, and Astralite wheels, a popular contemporary fitment are no longer available (Tony Dawson, the manufacturer scrapped all the tooling for them a number of years ago) . A wide choice choice of 17 wheels and tyres are readily available, at much more attractive prices.

Carburettors; British, European and American carburettors of any type available pre 1986 are eligible. Japanese ROUND Slide Mikuni and Keihin carbs will be eligible as well due to availability problems and high costs of some European carbs commonly used ‘in period’ ..

The series will form part of next year’s BHR championship’s, run over eleven days racing at 6 race meetings at circuits around the UK in 2012. Dates will be announced shortly. Bikes must be pre registered with the BHR and competitors must be a member of the VMCC to score championship points.

Hope to see you racing in ‘BEARS’ next season.

Andy Farrer.
