What is VMX

VMX = Vintage motocross

There are specific years and rules about the various historic mx classes and you will hear terms such as vmx and evo class.

In WA the club concentrates on vmx which are pre 1975 with a few exceptions as per the Motorcycling Australia handbook published each year.

What this also means that if you have a pre 1975 mx bike it is worth a lot more than one which is post 1975 as there are people who want to buy it and race it.

The most popular class is the Tables of Machines and Components 1970- 1975.

Rule 18.7.5.1 Acceptable for the Pre-1975 class are machines built up to and including the 1974 model. The only exception to this GCR is where the model remains unaltered after this date.
