Changes made to Bike­sports struc­ture

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

The 750 Mo­tor Club’s Bike­sports se­ries has al­tered its reg­u­la­tions and class struc­ture ahead of the 2017 rac­ing sea­son.

The sportscar se­ries will re­tain its bike-en­gine only for­mat, with 1500cc Suzuki Hayabusa en­gines to be used in Classes A and B – with tuned ver­sions per­mit­ted in the top class – while Class C will cater for cars with en­gine ca­pac­i­ties of 1100cc or lower.

Those changes also con­firm the demise of Class D, which catered for cars with en­gines up to 1000cc that had been fit­ted in pro­duc­tion mo­tor­cy­cles be­fore the start of 2010.

Class A and B will also fea­ture two dif­fer­ent min­i­mum weight lim­its, one for cars up to max­i­mum en­gine ca­pac­ity – which will be re­quired to run at a min­i­mum of 660 kilo­grams in­clud­ing driver, as per last year – and those up to 1340cc, which will need to be 590kg.

This has been changed to bal­ance per­for­mance lev­els be­tween the Rad­i­cal SR3 and PR6 mod­els, as well as Spire GT3 cars.

Last year’s cham­pion Phil Knibb will re­turn for the 2017 sea­son, which will con­sist of seven rounds.
