The FIM Europe Vin­tage Com­mis­sion has an­nounced a five round cham­pi­onship for 2018, with the best four rounds to count.

There are some changes to the FIME classes. The cut-off date for the 50cc class 2b has been moved from Dec 1972 to Dec 1983 to in­clude the GP type ma­chines that com­peted un­til the class was with­drawn from the FIM World Cham­pi­onships. The pre 1972 side­car classes have been ‘rested’ un­til such time that sup­port re­turns, and re­placed with pre 1983 F/era type side­cars.
