So common sense has prevailed.after all it is called The British SUPERBIKE championship and not the British modified superstock bike on slick tyres championship.Well done Stuart Higgs.

Agreed, Evo's a nice bonus and does allow a few extra teams to enter the series, but the main BSB class field has been more than strong enough to convince me that the format doesn't need to change. A few minor cost-cutting changes have to be considered, but the basic package is fine.

Does this mean we're keeping the same points system as well?? I shouldn't go without saying though at least our sport is clean.. Points systems and technical regulations aside.. At least we don't have riders and teams caught up in betting scandals..

When I first saw the 2010 points system it was confusing, & hard to see how it could improve this championship. :?
However, it is now starting to mean that this series is heading towards a thrilling climax as a direct result.
Hats off to Stuart Higgs & Co for having the foresight to come up with this innovative scheme! :)

Some people are clearly thick, British Superbike is just a name, does not matter what the rules or regs are, its a name just like the Premier League really being Old Division one etc.

If you want to keep the rules the same after 2011 then come 2012 we will have 2 top teams in BSB - the class in my opinion needs to run to superstock spec with small mods and then something needs to be done to superstock.


'superbikes' should be superstock bikes on slicks with mall engine mods.

'supersport' needs to be stock on slicks

@ Storm.."Some people are clearly thick".. People by definition means more than one.. My point was aside from the regulations.. I'm not bothered about Motec ECU's etc etc.. I'm bothered about the insane points system for the riders.. If that makes me thick then 80% of people in a recent pole are thick along with me.. You clearly have an interlect from the way you express your point of view.. Maybe you should employ it to read what other peoples points of view are before assuming your interlect is superior to theirs.. I'm not thick and neither are the majority of posters on here.. To assume I am or anybody else is for that matter shows a total lack of respect.. So fook off..

Settle down children!
I agree that Superbike should stay close as possible to production roots.
Wheels should be 17" (like production bike) and ECU should be the standard item PLUS a piggy back system, a'la Power Commander.
This would allow bikes like the BMW and 1198R/S to keep the standard traction control, the engineers to tweak the fuelling for the airbox & exhaust system and encourage manufacturers to develop better electronics (like Kawasaki who are thought to have TC on their new ZX10R).
The BMW S1000R has 190bhp with a race system... surely that's plenty?
With some careful mods to the regs you could have top spec bikes costing less than £25,000- and still fast as f**k

Why bring the 2012 MotoGP 1000cc regs' into the equation ?

MotoGP is a prototype class, BSB is a modified roadbike class...."Race on Sunday sell on Monday"

Leave the regs' alone until at least 2013 but encourage more teams to enter 'EVO' and concentrate on getting the rest of the programme right.

The UK. as I understand it, will be the only major European country not running a 250 four stroke class (the replacement for 125's) and we should also be encouraging Moto2 riders by incorporating bikes that qualify for the Moto2 series, at least from 2012 when the control engine deal runs out and any manufacturer can build engines, provided they meet FIM series regs'

Why is the UK always lagging behind ? The ACU should be taking the lead, not the circuit owners who are only serving their own interests.

Is it any wonder we are so far behind Spain, Red Bull series, Formula Extreme, Moto2. Their federation takes a lead ours takes a long lunch paid for riders licence fees.
