As you may recall from the article in Super Streetbike mag a ZX-10 won the all motor 1000cc class last year. Chad Millholland. Anyone going this year?
I just wanted to remind everyone once again about the upcoming event in Sept. I just got the custom patches made for the winners and they look good. We also have a new jacket sponsor as well. More details on that later when we have the exact style picked out. So who is going to be able to wear one of these on their back in 08?
This is the third annual Top Speed Shootout at Maxton during the ECTA September 2008 event. As before there will be 6 classes plus the closest to 150.000mph.
The rules are basically unchanged for 2008 except that we are raising the displacement of the lowest class from 600cc to 650cc to allow the Kawasaki ZX-636 bikes to compete.
Of course all bikes need to comply to the standard ECTA safety rules then just as before SSB has our own rule set to keep this a "street based" event. Here are the classes and extra rules we are using. There are just 4 simple rules. Then below that are the classes we are going to run. Last year we had some really fast bikes and we gave away some cool jackets to the winners too.
Check it out
1. All bikes must have a 2008 tag in your state and the tag must be on the bike for the entire meet. We will require you to present your registration paperwork. If you are a licensed dealer and the dealership owns the bike, you must present your dealership license, dealer tag, and be prepared to show that the owner of the dealership is the rider.
2. The bike must have a working headlight and tail light.
3. The bike must be ridden by the registered owner from Rule #1. This means NO JOCKEYS.
4. All bikes must comply with MPS, APS, P/P or P/PS classes from the ECTA rule book. This basically means everything is allowed except streamliners.
If an item is not specifically covered above, we will defer to the ECTA rule book other than the differences in engine displacements which are below:
650cc Any engine displacement that can be obtained from a production set of engine cases and made for a bike that originally had under 650cc. For example a GSXR600 can be bored and or stroked as far as you are mechanically able and it will still be allowed to compete in the 650cc class. This also means that 750cc engines or 1000cc engines can not be installed into 650cc frames. The bikes frame must be from an original 650cc bike.
650cc-Power Adder - Same as above but ONE power adder will be allowed. Nitrous, turbo or supercharger. Only ONE.
1000cc Any engine displacement that can be obtained from a production set of engine cases and made for a bike that originally had under 1000cc. For example a ZX-10R can be bored and or stroked as far as you are mechanically able and it will still be allowed to compete in the 1000cc class. This also means that 1200cc engines or larger can not be installed into 1000cc frames. The bike's frame must be from an original 1000cc bike.
1000cc Power Adder - Same as above, but ONE power adder will be allowed. Nitrous, turbo or supercharger. Only ONE.
Unlimited cc - Any production based motorcycle can be used with no limits on engine displacement.
Unlimited cc Power Adder - Same as above, but ONE power adder will be allowed. Nitrous, turbo or supercharger. Only ONE.
