If you get a 600 you can race even more classes than the 750.

BTW, you should be able to run those BT003 fronts all weekend. Most of my fast novices get 3 races out of a rear, some get 4. Really depends on suspension setup and riding style.

Even my experts can run the front all weekend.

I'll be out there flagging on Sunday for my prov. nov. needs. Decided it was too much of a rush and too many favors to try and get the bike ready to race by this weekend.

See you guys out there and then finally sometime next year on the grid.

So I may just end up running SBK A and SS A each race weekend.
Thanks for the insite Tony.
Whoa! That tire to race ratio is high!!! I'm on Dunlop 211's and I do 3 practices and 3 sprints each race weekend and I'll use the same set for 2 race weekends. So basically I'm using the same Dunlop 211's for 6 practice sessions and 6 races. My times aren't the fastest but I do 1:23-24 at Cresson and 1:55-56 at TWS (Texas World Speedway). I've never had an "oops" moment either on the tires...not even on my 6th race on the same set. After 2 race weekends I still can do 2 trackdays on the 211's...they last that long for me. Having good suspension also helps tire life. Oh, and I always run a soft front, nothing else and it still lasts and lasts.

Thanks for your help.
3 sprint races is the minimum for most of us. Probably half of us do 4 or more. There are a few that do all 7 with a 600cc bike. If you are over 40yrs old you can do 8 races with a 600cc bike because you can add Formula 40 (aka: the run what you brung class as long as you're over 40).

Going to miss this weekend :(

Sux, I was really looking forward to the last one of the year, but still in Japan so there are obvious issues with getting to the track

At your level all tires are good for many races and track days.

Last year after doing the 6hr at TWS (Texas World Speedway) with one other rider I did 6 sprints on Sunday. But I hear its easier to ride a 600 than bigger bikes.
