National Championships

The national motor cycling championship events include Tourist Trophy and Grand Prix races, sidecar events, trials, scrambles, and hill climbs. Road races and “round the houses” events are run, and motor cycle circuit races are held at the principal motor racing meetings. The Road Racing Championship and Sidecar Championship titles are awarded on the basis of points won at selected events throughout the whole season.
