Are there any Classic MTB Race series in the UK. Almost every other mode of transport has a race group, e.g Classic Racing Motorcycle Club, British Historic Racing, Yamaha Past Masters, etc. for motorbikes. Being a 50+ and what I understand is termed a Grand Veteran, I’m not sure I want to rock up to any of the modern events. Besides which, modern MTBs really don’t float my boat

There's a gang of RBers who like to enter numerous race series riding retro bikes. Check the events section to see if anything tickles your fancy. There's a few teams, most relaxed, some less-relaxed, entered into the 2019 Mountain Mayhem next June. Again,check the events section.

You'll struggle to find any classic MTB race series. Availability and cost of replacement parts that are likely to perish or deteriorate with race use is a put-off for some in a true racing sense. Not to mention that several race events are struggling with entries nowadays, I can't see there ever being an appetite for a large scale classic/retro series or championship, unless someone uncovers a shitload of super cheap retro tyres, mechs, chains and fork parts.
