    As stated in the title.

    Because we've had a rash of bikes that have had bad/intermittent transponders, it's putting a major strain on our scorers and track personnel. Be VERY aware of the rule book as it regards to race numbers. If your tail section is too small for proper readable side numbers, then numbers on the side of your fairings will be required.

    If our scorers cannot make out your numbers from the scoring building, on the left side of the track across from the start-finish line, you will not be scored if your transponder is intermittent! It's as simple as that. Bad transponder, coupled with "stylized numbers" or "Numbers that look good to match the bike" that are hard to read from 30' from the track, will result in last place, or a DNF. We've been very lenient in the past, and we can't afford to be any longer.

    Please arrange to have numbers that are by the book, or fail tech. Chapter 4 of our rulebook explains it all in great detail.

    Hey Dean, what about this situation....would the number have to be changed for mission?

    The second change for 2011 is the introduction of a club champion, which will be differentiated from the Expert #1 by different coloured number plates. This is something that was started in Calgary a couple of years ago and seems like a good way to get more entries in the smaller classes. The rules for this Championship are below:

    This year (2011) the EMRA is introducing the Overall Club Champion. The Club Champion is the racer who accumulates the highest point total combined from all classes in one season. The rider may use more than one motorcycle to enter different classes. The Overall Club Champion may use a white #1 on a blue background number plate until the following racing season ends and a new Champion is declared.

    We are going to introduce the club champion system too. You'd be required to run an X beside it, unless you were going to join, at which point, yes, you'd be required to run your club number with us and not an X. The x is reserved for visiting riders for single visits.

    Is that a shoe size or IQ?

    Are we going back to 6" numbers for 2012?
    I don't think those wonderful Ducatis I saw at the show had numbers larger than 4.5" on them.

    Hi Nikola,

    This is from last year's rule book:

    Chapter 4 ? Number Plate Requirements
    4.2 The number plate must be securely and safely fastened to the machine in a manner deemed
    acceptable by the Chief Technical Inspector. The number plate must be rectangular, and must
    be finished in white with a non-glare surface. Numbers must be at least 5 inches high and
    1 inch wide
    , and be legibly displayed on a non-glare white background or the machine
    will fail technical inspection:

    Do you expect the 2012 rule book to be the same or will it go to 6"?

    Thanks,
    Jerry
