Proposed New Tire Rule (or lack of!)
« on: September 15, 2011, 08:42:08 am »
I propose that CCS move to allowing racers to use slicks in every race.  Let's not kid anybody here, we're racing; we aren't on the street.  And this isn't 1999 where street tires were actually being used on the track.  We buy RACE tires, even when we are buying DOTs.  It really doesn't make any sense to limit the SS classes any more.  If people were trying to bring street machines and be competitive I'd see the continued point, but that just isn't the case.

That would be nice, if it weren't for the superbikes racing SS. At least the tire requirement will keep some of them out.

Well, even in the late 80's the street DOT tires we were using for racing weren't "street tires".

WERA is moving on this. It would save a lot of racers money and make CCS money and the slicks really arent any better now than the DOTs in many cases they are actually outdated.

We'll see............... WERA is still hung up on double bubble windscreens!  :spank:

Windscreens for the SV of either type are getting hard to find.  :banghead:

We should just cut the supersport classes altogether. The fastest guys are running supersport legal 600's anyways. Probably could cut middleweight and heavyweight too. Just leave unlimited superbike. It'll be a run what you brung class.

You need to read the WERA rulebook again.

That rules out the MFGs ever coming back to club racing. And its the only class keeping bikes within reason. The reason those fast guys are running SS bikes in the other classes is because of the SS class, if you get rid of it they will be on SBs.

Yes, the bold text that says there are no bodywork restrictions in LW classes.

So if the slicks offer no advantage then everyone should be running dot tires. Seemingly a mute point
