Machine eligibility

Machine eligibility specifications
and forms for 2021

To compete at any British Historic Racing meeting all machines must be eligible for the classes for which they enter.  All events can be viewed HERE.

You can see the Specifications for Solos and the three specific Three Wheeler Classes below along with the preferred option to complete an online submission including the ability to submit photos and any supporting documentation.  There is also an option to download a pdf file to print, complete and send to the Eligibility Team.

The Eligibility process

Eligibility registration forms are now available, sidecars are split into 3 groups, pre 59s, pre 72s including cycle cars and Morgans, and B.E.A.R.S. (This makes things easier for people to decipher as the forms include all the relevant eligibility notes for that particular class and makes things easier for BHR paperwork wise.)

Ideally one of the eligibility team will inspect and photograph each machine at a race meeting, preferably as it comes through scrutineering. This is to ensure that to obtain a registration certificate they intention is to attend and participate in a BHR meetings. It makes it easier for BHR as we get consistency in the photos which we take digitally. The machine can then be signed off there and then. We then aim to send out the registration card within 2 weeks of the machine being inspected and photographed.

The intention is to prioritise all machines that so far have no eligibility/registration paperwork with BHR, then move on to machines already registered so we can re photograph and issue new registration certificates and check that nothing has changed since they were last inspected.

A new numbering system has been created to prevent confusion, but note that all existing registration numbers will remain in use with existing machines until they have a new number and registration card issued and then their old number will be deleted.
