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...

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!?!

i have a couple of friends who race sv 650 s and i have been askin all about it .it really apeals to me but i am past it gone to lazy and i have me little lad who is only 4 so i cant afford the time nedded . and well there is the money aspect too .if i was 10 or 15 years younger with no commitments i would give it a go .
think about it lads if ye are young free and single now is the time dont regret not havin raced like me .why not try a track day to help ye decide i will do one next year if i dont sell my early 90s 1liter sports bike in the meantime .
im geting too old for going fast it dont have the same appeal .
if going fast is yer thing then raceing just might be for u .

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...
