Following a meeting with competitors in the Pro Superbike class after this morning’s rider’s meeting at Atlantic Motorsport Park in Nova Scotia for the fourth round of the Mopar CSBK National Championship Series, reigning National Champ Jordan Szoke created a petition that was then signed by the top ten riders in the Feature class.
Szoke then submitted this petition to series organizers, requesting a change to update the rules for the grid selection applying to double header events. The AMP race is the first such Pro Superbike double header of 2017.
Following a review of Szoke's petition request, CSBK organizers have agreed to revise the series rules applying to grid selection for the second day of double header events. These specific procedural rules were previously updated in a competitor memo prior to the start of the 2017 campaign.
The new format will see the start grid for race 2 established based on lap times from the opening race of each series double header, in all classes, typically held on a Saturday. Riders who earned spots in the top 10 of qualifying (Q2 of SuperPole for Pro Superbike competitors) for the weekend events will not start in a position lower than 10th on the grid for race 2 if these racers do not post a time in the opening race of the double header.
These updated guidelines will be used to establish the grids for Sunday’s races at AMP: Kawasaki Ninja 300 Spec Series, Liqui Moly Pro Sport Bike and the sixth race for the Mopar CSBK National Feature category.
