and d is the lightwieght stuff

and for each of those you have superstock and superbike.

SO theres TWO 750 classes
Funny you mention me being on CCS' nuts.....and then you throw the CMRA rulebook at me

Not to mention that Superstock/Superbike B allows unlimited displacement 4 stroke twins, so I wouldn't call it a "750 class."

Whens the last time a twin won a BSS or BSB race?

I can't remember it ever happening. A twin isn't going to be as fast (usually).

So IMHO - What's wrong w/ them being there?

There is a ton of difference between the 750 and 600. The 750's have the power of a liter bike (literally) and handle like the 600. The 750s used to be the "Superbike" class, it's a great all around track bike- always has been, always will be IMHO.

Yeah, well, he also wasn't spouting off about CCS being the "only" one with a 750 class either

nothing wrong at all, but you can't call something a "750 class" when I can race a 1198cc ducati bike in it.

Love my 750... I also have a CBR 600RR 05. I can tell you my 750 will eat it up, and spit it out! No question. That said, I've been passed at the track by 600's : ) I need to speed up?

600 = 10 classes you can sprint in(I think)
750 = 7 classes
1000 = 4 classes

Mr. Woopie is correct on this one, but F-40 class is for 40+ year old riders so maybe drop 1 class per bike groups depending on your age.

Is there some kind of CMRA rulebook test you have to take in order to be "qualified"
