RIDERS of the ACU 50cc Championship can now look forward to six different meetings in 2020 as chiefs reveal next year’s race calendar.
Welcoming Streetstock 125 four-stroke production bikes to their championship, the 50cc racers are set to kick off their season in April for another bumper year of action.
This season, 19 total riders campaigned bikes across three classes before Stephen Graves took the title by 54 points on the RLT BazGas Metrakit machine.
But there was plenty more action through the field as John Cooke broke the 50cc lap record at Aberdare Park, a non-championship round for 2019, with a lap time of 47.646sec and an average speed of 68mph.
In the classic ranks, it was Clive Somerfield on the RLT BazGas Classic 50 while Peter Swain clinched the Road-frame class title.
At this year’s Anglesey and Darley Moor rounds, the Streetstock 125s joined the grid and while the displacements differed, riders found similar speeds – especially at a wet Anglesey.
Bosses now look toward the start of the 2020 series at Oulton Park with a high reported interest already from both 50cc and 125cc riders.
