Brickerville, Pa. - Lanco's Board of Directors has decided to allow 12 and 13-year-olds to compete in the 125cc and 250cc Four-Stroke classes, beginning with Practice Night on April 10.
These are the only two classes in which drivers under the age of 14 will be permitted to race.
A policy for 12 and 13-year-olds is being developed; the details of that policy will be made public as soon as it is complete and approved by the Board.
When the second annual Micromania for 600's is run on July 3rd, the 270cc micros will also be part of the big show. The 270 Clash at the Clyde will be limited to 40 entries, with Lanco club members receiving preference. Non-members may submit an entry form, and if club members do not fill the entry list by a specified date, non-members will be accepted in the order their entry form was received.
Provided there are 40 entries, the winner will be paid $1,000, and the race will pay $100 to take the green.
The Clash at the Clyde will consist of four qualifying heats, a B-Main, and a 25-lap feature.
Additional information regarding the 270 Clash at the Clyde will be released in the next few weeks, and the entry form will be available on this website in the near future.
