ATV Youth 90 (8-12) Class Proposal and Request for Comment
GNCC Racing seeks input from the ATV Youth 90 (8-12) Class participants. This class is designated as a “Production” class, which requires OEM motor and matching frame combination model (matching year NOT required). Frame geometry must remain as designed by the OEM, including all suspension pivot points. Engine modifications, frame reinforcements, and aftermarket A-arms, caster brackets, swing-arms and suspension are permitted.
Thus far 7 rounds of the 13-round series have been held. It has come to our attention that often riders in this class are not actually competing on production bikes. This is especially true in the case of Cobra and Apex models. Apparently, manufacturers and/or retail distributors of these models offer options of other motors, such as Honda, Kawasaki, etc. This is not only confusing to the racers and their families, but confusing to the series organizers. Many hours have been spent sorting out whether or not these vehicles have been properly homologated, whether they constitute “production” models, or whether there is a competitive advantage. In the end, the kids just want to ride.
In an effort not to punish the riders who have competed thus far in the class, but to separate the true production models from the hybrids, GNCC Racing proposes to split the class as follows, giving riders who have competed to date the choice to declare which class they want their points to count for prior races and moving forward in the series. The proposed classes are as follows:
|90 (8-12) Class 1||71-90cc 2-Stk||Production||White||Black|
|90 (8-12) Class 2||71-90cc 2-Stk||Yellow||Black|
Please direct all comments and concerns to [email protected]. We would like to have comments no later then Tuesday, 21 so that a decision can be made prior to the upcoming Snowshoe event.
