Scooter racing has evolved from very innocent Reliability Trials held by the Lambretta and Vespa Clubs back in the early 60’s to the high speed racing of the 21st century. Racing for scooters was deadly serious and in the early 70’s it arrived. Over the following years scooter racing evolved into a serious sport and produced many fine young sports men and ladies.
The BSSO are a Non Territorial Club within the Auto Cycle Union (ACU). The ACU is the appointed body to run two wheeled motorised sport in the UK. Under the ACU the BSSO looks after the scooter sport side of the business. The BSSO currently run classes for almost any scooter produced. The classes start from 50cc and run up to 650cc. These cover both Solo and Sidecar classes. The race meetings take place at different venues throughout the season and the 2005 Calendar is currently shown at The British Scooter Sport Organisation.
Riders as young as 11 and up can enter events and ride in the National Championships. Older riders are also encouraged, however certain regulations cover both young and older riders. Once you have joined the BSSO you can then apply for an ACU race licence. This is strictly controlled by the ACU who issue the licences. Once you have your licence this then allows you to race your scooter.
