    Exclamation "UPDATED 1/15/18!" Rule and Class changes for 2018!

    The following changes are in no particular order.

    1) (Revised)The year model limit for Modern Classic will be raised to 2007 for all machines.
    The year model limit for Classic will remain at 1997 for 2018
    The year model limit for Classic and Modern Classic will be reviewed by the Technical Advisory Committee each year and will be advanced as needed.

    2) Starting in 2018 all classes will be open tire.

    3) The allowance for classic machines to ride down a class will remain capped at 1997.

    4) The following classes will be dropped for 2018
    Rookie Expert HW
    Rookie Expert LW
    Formula 1 Ladies
    Ladies 500 Superstock
    Motard
    Team 60 HW

    6) Formula 40 HW, MW, and LW have been removed from the list of classes that count toward the Overall Expert #1 plate.

    7) 2018 rules concerning pets at the track.
    No pets are allowed at any CMRA events – No exceptions. This includes pets restricted to trailers and motorhomes. You will be asked to leave the facility and/or pay a fine of no less than $100 per day if found in violation.
    The CMRA will be following the federal ADA Requirements concerning service animals. Service animals are defined as dogs that are individually trained to do work or perform tasks for people with disabilities. Examples of such work or tasks include guiding people who are blind, alerting people who are deaf, pulling a wheelchair, alerting and protecting a person who is having a seizure, reminding a person with mental illness to take prescribed medications, calming a person with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) during an anxiety attack, or performing other duties. Service animals are working animals, not pets. The work or task a dog has been trained to provide must be directly related to the person’s disability. Dogs whose sole function is to provide comfort or emotional support do not qualify as service animals under the ADA
    (see https://www.ada.gov/service_animals_2010.htm).


    8) The BoD voted unanimously yesterday to add Ultra Lightweight GP Expert, E Superbike Expert, and E Superstock Expert to the classes that count towards the overall Expert #1 plate.

    Classic and Modern Classic year model cutoffs will be set at 20 and 10 years and will begin to move forward each year.

    2) more to come.....
    Ok, I'm a little confused as we're going into 2018 season?! But you put 10 years back for Modern Classic but for the past season?! So just want to be crystal clear, that next year Classic will be 1998 and older plus newer if equal specs, and Modern Classic will be 2008 and older plus newer if equal specs???

    I'm curious if it goes "plus newer if equal specs". What is the 08 r6 equivalent to? 2014?

    Technically, even Wiki shows 2010 R6 technically different from 2008/2009. May not be much, but it's there.
