A spec ECU like Motec would keep most if not all locals out of MA. Though I don't think locals are needed for the occasional entry in SB. That is why there is a Super Stock 1000 class. I ran a MA round in 2017 and that is when the Superstock and SB were in the same race. I was able to run two races. If I enter the Superstock class now I would only be able to run one race on most weekends. That is a lot of time and expense for one race. I wonder if they need to go back to the combined SB and SS race that they had before? The smaller teams could run SS and still be in the main feature race for spectators and TV.
