|Honda Canada Confirms CBR250R Series Rules & School Dates|
Honda Canada has announced the series specific rules for the new CBR250R Challenge spec racer class, scheduled to debut in conjunction with the MOPAR Canadian Superbike Championship in June, 2012. The series format is very similar to the successful 125cc Honda spec Championship that ran with the Canadian National Tour from 2008-2011.
The 2012 Honda CBR250R Challenge Series limits changes and modifications to the machines, with the goal of placing emphasis on rider talent and development. All competitors will race on brand new Pirelli Diablo Rosso II race rubber, developed last season in Europe. Only one tire change will be allowed during each three day National event race weekend.
As in previous seasons, each National weekend will feature a double header format for the CBR250R competitors, with points paying National events on Saturday and Sunday of each round. Newly crowned Honda CBR125R Challenge National Champion Stacey Nesbitt will run the coveted number one plate in the inaugural Honda CBR250R Challenge series in 2012.
Honda also confirmed two CBR250R dedicated track day schools scheduled to run prior to the start of the 2012 National Series.
