BSB » POLL: Do you like the BSB rule changes?


I'm surprising myself and slowly coming round to this new points system. Initially I was 100% against, as was evident in previous posts, but now I'm warming. I know that the vast majority are against them but I think they may well work. I agree that it's massaging the numbers but maybe if we have 6 riders all in with a chance of winning the championship at the start of the last round, it will be worth the change although I still have to get my head around it properly.

I spoke to Stuart Higgs earlier today at some length. He is obviously passionate about the series and is seeking to ensure the championship continues to be successful, regarding its attraction to TV audiences, in the face of fierce competition from from other sports. They have been in discussion with the teams for some time and according to SH this new points system has been devised with the teams input! I give him full marks for spending time (about 20 minutes) to argue his case with a 'mere fan' and whilst I strongly dissagree with the new points system I obviously wish the series luck.

@ WIGZEY. I applaud visionary organisational change when it is required. The BSB racing has been great for some time now and doesn't need mucking about with to make it 'more exciting'. It's not a case of MSV having the balls to do it, as you say - anyone can do that. It's having the intelligence and understanding to appreciate when change is necessary. I would suggest that in this case, it isn't! Thumbs up to MotorSport Vison for actually having the balls to introduce such a radical change. We already have motogp and wsbk using the standard points system, I like the idea of doing something different with our domestic championship to make it more exciting. Posted by WIGZEY -

I posted earlier in the day with a tongue-in-cheek comment but now I've had a bit of time to think about it, I'm no longer confused, just angry! The series worked well with the simple points system... no complication, no confusion and the best rider / team effort expended over the entire season won. Isn't that racing? According to the Lords and Masters I guess not. Like everything else, it seeems, we have to f**k it up with rules that are over complicated and totally un-necessary. My enthusiasm for the series has taken a severe knocking. Re-think the policy now, lead the lunatics back into the asylum and return to sanity.
