However, if I can talk Glenn in to leaving the SV there for me, I may be enticed to spring F2 or D Superbike... I think I could do something in those classes that wouldn't be too embarrassing.
If they have an over 50 class....I'm there.

Not to thread jack, but I got a quick question and I don't see it in the CMRA rule book. Are aftermarket wheels like Marchesini's legal to use in Superstock classes? It seems that anything goes in Superbike and Formula though. I'm thinking of doing some racing next year and wanted to know for sure.
Thanks.

ok thanks. I was thinking that, but figured I'd ask just in case. I wanted to be able to race a few classes during a race weekend like Superstock A, Superbike A and Formula 1 with the same bike. Of course that's probably a whole lot of racing for one day to be in all 3 classes anyway. How many race rounds are there in each class anyway?

Race rounds? Not sure what you mean. One race per class per race weekend. Is that what you mean?

OEM wheels only for SS classes. Aftermarket wheels are for SBK classes unless specifically called out (motard, for example).

yeah that's what I mean. Sorry I wasn't clear. Didn't know is they ran two races in each class like AMA has double header weekends. So sounds like it's really do able to run 3 classes each race weekend since that's only 3 races.
Thanks for your help.

only 1 race for each class, each weekend.....

but if you are talking about bikes....here's some examples.

A superstock/superbike - 1000's
B superstock/superbike - 750's
C superstock/superbike - 600's
D superstock/superbike - 650's (vtwin)
Formula 1 - pretty much run what you brung
lightweight twins - 650's (vtwin)
heavyweight twins - 1000's (vtwin)
Formula 40 heavyweight - 40+ yr old guys run what you brung
Formula 40 lightweights - same except limited to twins

(not exact cc numbers, and there are other factors like motor type and all that, see www.cmraracing.com and look through the rulebook for exact ruling)

being that you have a 1000cc bike and you're under 40....you only have 3 choices to race.....A superstock, A superbike, and Formula 1

you can always run UP in class as well, for example if you had a 600, you can race in the 750 or 1000 class.....but the 1000 and the 750 cannot run in the 600 class.

btw, 3 races in a weekend isn't bad at all....but being on a 1000, and depending on your speed.....you might be running 1 or 2 fronts, and a rear tire for just about each race.

even on the 600, i'd hate to do more than 2 races on 1 rear tire.

yeah that's what I was reading in the rules too about the different classes, but thank you for confirming it. I was thinking of getting a 750 next year if my money panes out so I would be able to run Superstock A & B, Superbike A & B and Formula A & B. I'm not looking to be racing every time it's a race weekend so I wanted to maximize my track outing when I'm racing that weekend. I most likely would only ride in SS A,B and SBK A,B with a 750. Four races in one day seems like plenty.
Man know I can look forward to 40 since there is a class all by itself for that age group. lol

wow didn't think about that. That could get really expensive quick. So 2 races max on 1 set of tires then sounds like the norm and may even go thru 1rear per race. My first race weekend I'll just have an extra set with me just in case. I don't want to have to go thru more then 2 sets of tires in a race weekend if I can help it. So I may just end up running SBK A and SS A each race weekend.
Thanks for the insite Tony.
