More rounds please.
It would be great if we could get NJMP moved so we're not competing with the other guys at Summit. I know you guys at N2 are working hard. I appreciate the effort.
Making that happen that happen is priority number 1.
We dont want the conflict either.
Yep. Already mostly handled.
October endurance. I like it!
Is this theory/wishlist or is this for real and I just can't see it in the pic?
it was posted on FB. came off the NJMP website
A group of us that race vintage have been talking about getting a 250/300 to endurance race this year. When ever a schedule becomes available, we will probably start nailing down our plans. We are looking forward to giving this a try. Any tips for a new team wanting to get started would be greatly appreciated!
If the ULW races remain the same, you'll want an R3 or N300. Not much else to know... show up and have fun.
We have considered an SV650 since it can also be raced with AHRMA (we are mainly vintage racers). But from what it looks like the SV's are combined into the same class at heavy weight? Maybe I am miss understanding this?
The ULW's run a separate 2 hour race, the other 3 classes run on track at the same time for the 4 hour but are scored separately. Get the SV, you'll have a lot of people to race with across the 3 classes, not to mention a ton of sprint racing opportunities.
Why not do both? . That's my plan. SV and then an R3......
HWT - 1000cc bikes
MWT - 600 class
LWT - SV650's
All 3 of these classes race in the same 4 hour race at the same time, but are scored within their own class. So yes, if you're a slower SV650 rider, you'll have at least a handful of 600's and 1000's come by you during your stint on your bike. There is usually an award for the 1st,2nd, and 3rd overall winner, but more often than not that's split up between the 600s and 1000s simply because of lap times, and they can usually put in more laps in those 4 hours than a LWT team.
Ultra LWT - the 300's race about 30 min after the 4 hr race goes. This one is 2 hours long.
As a die hard ktm fan not, it pains me to say it, R3 is your best choice, it’s not as fast as the ktm but can run the whole race on one tank where the 390 is only good for 40 minutes on the stock tank.
That is what I thought, but N2's website didn't explain that very well.
Thank you everybody for the info. Hopefully I can get something worked out with my buddies. I feel like my riding would greatly benefit from endurance racing. I also really want to get on the track with a modern machine. I'm sure they are a lot easier to ride than a 1970s 2 stroke.
