In the words of the series promoter "There will still be a NakedBike Lites series in 2007, there will be a lot of FZ6's in it!"Troubl said:Hey Byron, I'm bit confused about this. Does this mean the NakedBike-Lite class has been renamed the FZ6 Racing series, or are they adding a new series with just FZ6's, or what? If they are doing both the NakedBike-Lite AND an FZ6 series, are you going to participate in both or just one of them or what?
And once again, I have to congratulate you on your outstanding job on the last one! :dblthumb
#81 Australian NakedBike-Lite Championship :banana
NakedLites will still run with the "unlimited/unrestricted" big bore nakedbikes. As will the FZ6 Cup. From what I have heard the FZ6 Cup bikes will get three races per round (there are 8 rounds in the 2007 series.) with the Nakedbikes/lites and will get one race alone, So they get four races per weekend and thats 32 races for the series in 2007. Im sort of thinking that if there are lots of FZ6' in 2007 that the NakedLites title will probably also go to a FZ6 mounted rider.
The FZ6 race alone will be great fun, only FZ6 on the track all on the same control tyre.
Extra news today is that the FZ6 Cup has been confirmed to run the "Pirelli SuperCorsa Pro" as a control tyre. (SC2 Front) & (SC3 Rear.) Only mods permitted should be close to the NakedLite rules Suspension internals/ rear shock relpacement, rearsets, chain pitch, accessory ECU (PowerCommander/Dobeck/Techlusion) exhuast system (Not that anyone makes header pipes.)
The aim of this series is to have a control class, that helps entry level races into the national series. It will be the most affordable class to compete in the national series.
One thing that worries me is not being able to run full race wets (when its wet that is) this should be considered a basic safety issue. Sending riders onto a wet race track on supersport tyres is going to be Chaos.
Anyone with a NakedLite machine shouldnt worry they still have a class next year.
