    Default Newb Q: LRRS classes

    It's been a day or two since I raced (1997 ?), I see a lot of LRRS classes I'm not familiar with. Could someone explain the Novice classes to me: formula, rookie, and starter?

    They are all the same, just more opportunities to race.

    1 = big bikes
    2 = middleweights
    3 = lightweights
    4 = ultralight and below

    The novice classes are basically the Superbike tiers.

    Formula 1, Rookie 1, Starter 1: Unlimited Superbike (750s, 1000s, Busa)
    Formula 2, Rookie 2, Starter 2: Middleweight Superbike (600s)
    Formula 3, Rookie 3, Starter 3: Lightweight Superbike (650 twins)
    Formula 4, Rookie 4, Starter 4: Ultralight Superbike (Hawks, 300s, Unicorns)

    Why multiple classes for the same bike class? So you can get multiple races in during a weekend! You can also race up classes too, say you've got a MW so you'll be in all the '2' races, you can also enter all the '1' races for even more track time.

    So hypothetically, an SV could run formula 2 and 3 on Saturday, rookie 2 and 3 on Sunday morning, then get run over in starter 2 and 3 in the afternoon?

    Is this weekend's schedule typical for a race weekend?

    Yes. If you are a good rider, you will not get run over running an SV in the novice '2' classes. You will probably finish mid pack. Great fun. I highly recommend it.

    For all the reasons mentioned plus to race with faster riders to get a little tow. Don't worry about the faster bikes, when they pass you they do it with style. Ask me how I know.

    Meh, you can podium in the "2" series on an SV if you know your way around a motorcycle and the track. It will come back quickly I would bet.
