MA Announce One Premier Australian Superbike Class in 2014

Posted:

Motorcycling Australia (MA) have announced changes to Superbike regulations for the Australian Superbike Championship (ASBK) in 2014.

The changes include the provision of a single superbike class for 2014 which will incorporate aspects of the previous Superstock 1000 class.

These changes will initially only apply to the ASBK with 2014 set to be a trial year. Potential developments in future years will depend on changes at international level to make superbike racing more cost effective.

In the ASBK superbike single class for 2014 the following items must remain as OEM manufactured equipment:

Camshafts
Valve springs
Valve retainers

Race kit ECU‰Ûªs will remain but the standard ECU may be re-flashed. All other superbike regulations will remain as per 2013 Manual of Motorcycle Sport.

Motorcycling Australia's Road Race Commission Chairmain, Phil Tainton said the commission is extremely enthusiastic about a single championship class for large capacity sports bikes.‰Ûª

"The single class format was extremely successful in the 600cc supersport class in 2013 and the new rules offer similar technical changes. The single 1000cc class is a natural progression" Tainton said.

To ensure competitors have time to adjust to the changes, the opening round of the championship will be held from 5-6 April 2014 at Queensland Raceway.

The opening round will also feature the following championship classes: 125cc GP/Moto3; 250cc/300cc Production; in addition to the Supersport and Superbike classes.

A new two-day format will be introduced as a further cost reduction measure.

The completed 2014 calendar, TV schedule, prize money and entry fees will be released within the next seven days following finalisation of rounds to be conducted as part of the V8 Supercar Series.
