Here's some first hand insight after a few years in the novice ranks. Skip the C classes as they are indeed the meat grinders. If I had to do it all over again I'd only run A and B superstock AND superbike. Go look at the results and you will see that A and B classes are mostly 600's anyway, and the A and B tends to filter out the yahoos on 600's. Superbike classes also seem less full as I would guess most think they will get out motored in the superbike classes. C superstock is full of Rossi/Maladin wanna be's, who seem to have little respect for the fact we all have to go back to work on Monday. Good Luck Swift, let me know if I can help you.

hey erik... plus 1 on what Buck said. every novice in the club wants to run the 600 classes. there for you have 800 entries on the grid. if you run the A and B class you might only have a 1/4 of the entries. Thats what you want if you are wanting to get rid of that yellow shirt easily. btw; you will be a PROVISIONAL NOVICE. yes you do race in the novice class, but untill you complete your 2 race weekends without crashing and your corner working you will be wearing that yellow shirt as a provisional. good luck and i am always open to any questions you may have.

I'd say run in A superstock, B superstock, and B superbike. If I can finish in 5th place in A superstock on an old gsxr600, you can do better than that. As Buck said... you'll get smashed in A superbike, don't waste your money. You may want to try Formula 1 as well.

Thanks for all the good advise guys.
I think I'll sign up for A Superstock, B Superbike & B Superbike for my first few sprints.

I can't wait.
Anyone Going to Hallett 5-18 ?

Hallett is pretty slippery after the sealer treatment. Remember that stuff in T16/17 at MSRH? Well it's all over the whole track at Hallett. Be careful and if it rains I'd pack it in............
