Historic Log Books
Motorcycling Australia’s Manual of Motorcycle Sport outlines all the rules as they relate to historic road racing at a domestic level. Following some recent confusion, MA wishes to make riders and officials aware of the following important points:
- Log books must be produced at machine examination, and at any other times during a meeting, if requested by a meeting official. If a log book cannot be produced, the machine cannot be used at the meeting. Exceptions to this rule apply if the log book has been left at home etc, a "Historic Log Book Declaration" is signed by the entrant/rider, and a declaration fee is paid.
- The only other exception is for international riders who have brought their own machine into the country. In this case, the rider/entrant must complete an "Overseas Historic Machine use" form which has been approved prior to the race meeting.
- There are no interim log books. All Australian machines must have been issued with, and be able to produce, a current log book.
- Persons who are constructing a machine for use in historic road racing must submit plans to MA prior to completion by completing an Interim Approval Application Form. See rule # 184.108.40.206 in the 2012 Manual of Motorcycle Sport.
