The ACU has released a brief summary of the enquiry held on March 25, 2015 into the events at the opening round at Hilton Park of the 2015 Maxxis ACU British Motocross Championship powered by Skye Energy Drink. Will fans, riders and teams be happy with the outcome?

The enquiry has led to amended race results that change the overall and championship standings for the MX2 class. The biggest winner from that decision is Wilvo Forkrent KTM’s Adam Sterry who moves from 20th place to eighth overall. You can see the new tables below.

The enquiry concludes that while the Medical Cover provided at Hilton Park exceeded the ACU’s minimum requirement, significant improvement to Medical Cover will be brought in soon.

A full report will be released at a later date but you can read the summary in full below.

Brief Summary of the ACU Enquiry into Hilton Park

Following events at round one of the Maxxis Championship held a Hilton Park, the ACU held an enquiry at Rugby on Wednesday 25th March.

Chaired by John Collins, the ACU Deputy Chairman, the Board of ACU Events Ltd, members of the ACU’s Motocross Committee met with three team principals and an importer and held a detailed and frank discussion on the events of the day and areas of which caused concern about the conduct of the meeting.

A more detailed report of the meeting will be published shortly but the key resolutions the meeting came up with are:

Steve McCauley will assume the position of Race Director at Rounds Two and Three of the Championship

Stuart Drummond will assume the role of Acting Series Manager

Whilst the Medical Cover provided at Round 1 exceeded the ACU’s minimum requirement, significant improvement to Medical Cover will be implemented shortly.

Over the next few weeks, ACU Events Ltd and the ACU Motocross Committee and the Series Promotor will be putting together a management structure that will be responsible for each round of the Championship

Ahead of this enquiry, the ACU Motocross Committee investigated their earlier decision to impose place penalties and conclude that they did not comply with the NSC. As a result, the four penalties issued in the first MX2 race have been rescinded.
