Forgot about the Thruxton Cup. Is AHRMA still bankrupt? There's termoil afoot. Hope it works out for the racers.

Its the same as with ANY contingency program in all types of racing. Why does everything Buell or HD does have to be viewed negatively. I can assure you, racers appreciate this type of effort. Every little bit helps when you're trying to compete on a shoe string.

Go here: http://www.buell.com/en_us/mania/rac...ingsupport.asp and download the contingency form. All the rules and payouts for each series and class are spelled out clearly.



They pay to 5th place in most cases. I think a decent racer on a lightly-prepped XB12R could clean up in a lot of classes. AFM Formula IV, for instance, is hotly-contested, but mostly by 80hp-ish SV650s. Toss a 100hp bike that doesn't weigh a whole lot more and it's a no-brainer.



Who among the MOrons will take up the challenge of racing a Buell in 2007? Please email us to let us know.

Good to hear (or not maybe). Hopefully, everyone gets what they need from this and racing can continue.

Huh?



This has got to be perhaps the most non-anti-Buell thread since I've been here.
