Changes made to Bikesports structure
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.
