PRO CLASS CHANGE
Entries into the Pro class are open to riders upon approval of the competition committee.
Pro Payout is set at $500, promoters may give additional prizing at their discretion.
BONUS POINTS FORMAT
We will not have any bonus points round moving forward.
There will be NO dropped races for the PRO Class Championship.
All other A/B classes will stay as outlined in the rule book, with the amount of drop rounds corresponding with the amount of races scheduled for the 2019 season. Calendar to be released in early January.
As a compromise to balance increasing costs to promoters we will be increasing the race entry fees by $5. We will be encouraging everyone to Pre-Enter Events online via Mototally where the entry fee will be $50 Saturday / $35 Sunday. If you chose to wait and pay onsite on race day the fees will increase to $55 Saturday / $40 Sunday.
NEW PEEWEE CLASS STRUCTURE
Our little-est racers are steadily increasing and it has become apparent we need to accommodate a wider range of skill sets for safety and fun factor.
Peewee Expert - advanced skill set with racing experience, max 50cc 2T/ 110cc 4T automatic clutch minibikes
Peewee Intermediate - some riding experience, max 50cc 2T/ 110cc 4T automatic clutch minibikes
Peewee Beginner - new racers with limited riding experience, 10” wheel size restriction. They will race on a separate course appropriate for learning and bike size
B CLASS START
30 B will now start ahead of 40B
There will be a 10-15 minute delay between the last A class and the first B class (50+) start. This is to better space the classes and give a clear track to the faster B racers. All A classes will have a 2.5HR cutoff time base on the Pro class start time. All B classes will have a 2.0HR cutoff time based off the 50+ start time.
These points will change from an automatic 25 points, to your best race result plus one position.
GOOD SAMARITAN POINTS
Any racer that forfeits their own race to help a severely injured racer will be given 25 points. This is not to be abused and meant for emergencies and will be at the discretion of the competition committee.
Abolish dead checks. If promoters need a check, it will now have to be a Live Check - manned by 2 volunteers.
It’s in the rule book that all racers must have the correct badging for their bike so that racers and promoters can identify riders for passing, scoring, safety, etc. AMSA has purchased coloured class stickers and are printing temporary numbers for Day Licenses and new racers so that everyone can be identified. Anyone participating in the series needs to comply, and there is zero excuse to line up at the start without the appropriate badging. Any racer who does so, will have a penalty of starting sitting backwards on the bike.
The Competition Committee shall has the authority to review infractions and apply their agreed upon interpretation of the Rule Book on a case by case basis.
Dogs must be on leash at ALL EVENTS.
ALL RACERS MUST READ RULEBOOK
Everyone must read the 2019 rulebook and sign off in acknowledgment of the rules before being approved for a license.
TWO MOTO FORMAT:
For two-moto format on closed courses, each moto will be up to one hour.
For two moto format, Olympic scoring will be utilized. Positions will be added together with second moto position as the tie-breaker.
Promoters are expected to deliver Sunday races in a timely manner according to the standards laid out in the Rule Book. Penalties for failing to deliver races according to these guidelines can result in financial penalties up to $500, according to the discretion of the Competition Committee and the AMSA Board of Directors.
