Time to change BSB?

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

Hav­ing watched all types of mo­tor­cy­cle rac­ing since the six­ties, many changes have taken place. The cur­rent for­mat for Bri­tish Su­per­bikes (and WSB for that mat­ter) gives those on 1200cc ma­chines a dis­tinct ad­van­tage. For next year, those in charge need to make ad­just­ment and only al­low 1000cc bikes to race.

While Shane Byrne is a very good rider, he also has the ad­van­tage of the ma­chin­ery he is rid­ing and this is to the detri­ment of the sport in general, and to the pay­ing pub­lic.

I for one have de­cided not to at­tend any BSB meet­ings this year, purely be­cause of this un­fair sit­u­a­tion.

I know that oth­ers have sim­i­lar views on this sub­ject, and we can­not all be wrong.

Ac­tion is re­quired, and I hope the rule-mak­ers do some­thing about it. Peter Stub­bing­ton
