Any thoughts on 2006?

I know it v.early in the year, but does anyone have any ideas/proposals for next season?

A new class for 900SS/800ie with slicks? (the old man mentioned this before, I think it's a great idea)

Keep the 600/620 class limited again with no big bores? or increase to 680 across the board?

Wets?

Warmers?

The Pirelli's work very well I think in the dry.

How many rounds? 6 is good, maybe max of 8? Any more and it gets expensive and time off work is a problem etc.

Defo would love to do Oulton Park in 2006.

What do you guys & gals think?










Yes, I am still THAT bored

You'd never get off the line with 3 of you on it

...or are you getting one each?

Well ... lots of interesting stuff could be done I think. It's a bit exciting to be in situation to suggest these changes and actually have a possibility that one of them will be adopted.

So - lots of ideas about how it could be progressed. First of all, I think it would benefit the club to keep the current desmo due series going - to allow the entry level racing.

I have two idea's about another championship that could be run alongside it. First is running 900SS's and the second is running 748's (no R's or SPS's though) Same deal with regards to engine mods, FI is free, shock free, fork internals free, clutch free but the heads aren't allowed to be touched. I would include any road legal tyre with warmers and wets.

I think DD is perfect like this.
I wouldn't like any change for next year. But maybe my riding skills...

I forgot to say, an 8 round series as well

And I'd prefer a 748 series to be honest - I think it would be pretty cool.

2 sections within the starter class: 620's and std 583's
Means it wouldnt be too expensive for new entries keep control tyre & all susp etc as now.

add in a class for up to 900's - all mods permitted warmers/wets - the lot, and Bobs your uncles auntie

I rember having a discussion last year on Bikes for a DSC race series, the class would have included 748's no engine tuning, no R's or RS's, 900SSie again no engine tuning and 900SS's allowed to use 944 kits and free carbs. Sadly since that discussion I have sold the 748 I trackdayed and raced last year to enable me to do the Desmo Due series.
Only real change I would like for next year is seperate classes for the differnt types of Desmo Due. Happy enough to have wets introduced but not to bothered about warmers if we used Diablo Corsas alongside wets.

748's seem to be way cheaper than 800ie's too, if there was a 900ss/800ie class.

16 x 748's on biketrader for under 4000 (same as a 620)

I think the main issue would be getting enough people in both classes, otherwise could end up with 15 x 600's and 10 x 748's.
