WHAT DO I NEED? HOW MUCH?

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Great Experiences -

Pa­per­work

ACU li­cence (can be pur­chased on the day, £17), race en­try (£50£100 in ad­vance). Ap­ply sup­plied num­bers to your bike. That’s it.

Rid­ing kit

Off-road hel­met with a gold ACU sticker (£30+ new), MX boots (de­cent used ones from £50, new from £80), gloves (£7+), gog­gles (£10), pants (£25), shirt (£10) and ba­sic body ar­mour (£30). Off-road gear is cheaper than road stuff and cheaper still if you get it used (hel­met apart) or bor­rowed.

Bike

A de­cent, used, novice-friendly bike such as a Yamaha WR250 can eas­ily be had for un­der £3000.
