Spirit of the class.
This new class is designed to encourage more people to go racing. It is meant to be accessible and as simple and affordable as possible. It is meant to highlight the additional sustainability of this type of format, and provide a platform for riders who don't want the added burden of development and modification. Rules for this proposed class, have been assembled after careful review of, "Production", "Production Superbike" and "Superstock", regulations in the MA Manual of Motorcycle Sport, With a few exceptions, they emulate "Superstock", as this was the most standard format, that allowed a modified pipe.
