Why would you turn away a decent number of entries? If the organisers think that they're just going to get a zillion modern entries and don't need the old bikes, then they're kidding themselves.
Really? That's absurd, knock back potentially one of the largest classes, why on earth would they do that?

Have now heard that the vintage class IS going ahead. The bloke saying that it is on, is quite well connected so am happy to believe him.

I seem to remember some idiot did that a few years back. And a couple of better prepared blokes did it last year too.

If they stick with the stupid O45 rider rule, then I can't ride the old bike class anyhow.

Great idea. Like you I think they would get quite a few entries
Old blokes with nothing to prove, lots of fun.
