I appreciate the response. Yes I have no misconceptions about how competitive I will be at first.  I was just looking to narrow down which of the above mentioned classes are more competitive than others as to prioritize and enter the LESS competitive classes my first races.


I am going to be doing race school 4/4, a couple weeks before the first NJMP CCS round

Have you already done a race school?  If not, when you do a school, ask the instructor(s).   I think they would have good advice for you.   Print out the CCS rules and bring them with you so you can make notes right on the paper.

Your first few races you are likely to not be very competitive so I think you do not need to be concerned with that yet.  You do not want to be with other bikes that are so much faster that you will be frustrated.  It's nice to be able to keep up with, or almost keep up with, other racers so you can have fun learning.
I am not going to give you any advice more specific than that because I quit roadracing many years ago.

Bikes For Sale / Built SuperSport SV650 - CCS/Wera/AHRMA
« Last post by Mikege92 on January 17, 2020, 07:13:37 pm »

Selling a first gen supersport built SV650 (CCS/WERA/AHRMA), built from the ground up by Guy Bartz (arguably one of the best SV builders) and I, build sheet below. Race proven. Great supersport race bike or track day build. Yes there are cheaper SV's out there but they are not as built as this one is. What would it cost you to build one from the ground up? (more than this) What would it cost you when something goes wrong during your race or track day? This bike is turn key ready to race and win (has already won two races at AHRMA Road America). Located near Milwaukee, WI.

Shooting the bull / Movie: Motorcycle Man

MOTORCYCLE MAN is a short documentary about a man who has pursued a single passion in life: motorcycle racing. Dave Roper has raced every year since 1972, competing on exotic vintage bikes at racetracks around the world and winning a reputation as a folk hero of the sport.

But Roper is hardly an adrenaline addict. He takes a philosophical approach to racing, viewing it as a test of mental and physical abilities. As he enters his twilight years, Roper reflects on the unconventional path he has followed in life, the dangers he has faced and the choices he has made.
