You would start in supersport 600

The class you start to race in is purly down to what bike you are comfortable to drive at speed, if your able for quicker bikes you will be fine.

Only snag about this class is the fact that there is about 80-90 entries in this class at a clubman round and only 32-26 fit on track so there are a couple non qualifier races

Pre'97 is DEFINITELY the way to go!

But finding parts for the bikes is starting to get hard...

Re: pre 97 racing

I used to race when it was Pre 87 and Pre 90!!! Still have enough parts to build up my old TZR 250!!

Are the grids full in Pre 97 or would there be room for a Pre 87 or 90 class at the of the grid, introduce a Forgotten Era/Earlystocks type type class and bring out some older machinery!?!

No wouldnt be room, grids are full, there are often non qualifiers for the Pre-97

What do you mean by Entry Forms? Do you have a race license and a transponder? If so you can download the Entry Forms from several websites to enter races...

Re: pre 97 racing

You can rent transponders from Mondello on the day I believe but I think that's the only track that does this. My advice would be to get one ASAP (free delivery if ordered this month). They're expensive but you'll need one for racing. You need a TranX260.

As for Entry Forms, I usually download them from http://www.irish bike racing.com/downloads.php (delete the spaces).

Best of luck this season!

Yes Tom BUT when you arrive get yer butt over to the control tower and sort it out quickly with the timekeepers. There are only a limited supply of these.
