POLL: Do you like the BSB rule changes?

The 2010 British Superbike Championship will be unlike any other as MSVR introduce a series of rule changes intended to spice up the racing - but do you think they will work?
The announcement that the MCE British Superbike Championship will undergo a radical rule shake-up in 2010 certainly prompted plenty of discussion on the Crash.net Forums.

Changes to the qualifying format, the points system and the how the title is won indicate one of the biggest overhauls in the series' history.

Coming a year after Leon Camier dominated on the way to the 2009 BSB title, the new rules have been introduced to spice up the racing, make it fairer for riders, yet ensure the battle for the crown goes down to the wire.

Rule changes are controversial though and we want to know what you think by voting in our latest poll.

I think the majority know that this is totally unneccessary........even tho' Camier deservedly ran away with the championship last season it doesn't mean that the quality of the racing throughout the field was diminished and it doesn't follow that it will happen every year.....this is just a knee jerk reaction dreamed up by a committee to solve a problem that doesn't exist. Manipulating the scoring in an attempt to improve (in their eyes) 'the show' is a real turn-off and devalues the championship. But will they take any notice of real racing enthusiasts? Of course they won't! They'd rather try and pander to a general TV audience who aren't really that knowledgeable or interested...
