MA released an Information Bulletin on February 23, 2010 with a rule change for the Pro Lites Classes run in Australia.
The previous rule allowed two strokes with the capacity of 100-150cc to compete against four-strokes with the capacity of 200-250cc. The new rule bulletin raises the capacity of the two-stroke machines up to 250cc.
What does this mean?
In Australia you can race a 250cc machine straight up, whether two-stroke or four-stroke. A great big thumbs up to the Motorcycling Australia organization.
Now hopefully this rule will remain in place, unlike the FIM whom last year promised this rule change, but some time during the year quietly removed the announcement Press Release from their web site.
Here is a copy of the Information Bulletin from Motorcycling Australia;
A huge thumbs up to the racers, fans and Motorcycling Australia for this rule change!
About Motorcycling Australia
Motorcycling Australia (MA) is one of Australia’s largest rider organisations, with more than 26,000 members. For more than 80 years, it has been the governing body of motorcycle sport in Australia. Since 2005, MA has accepted non-racing motorcyclists to its membership in the Riders’ Division.
MA is the sole Australian affiliate of the international governing body for motorcycling, Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM), based in Geneva, Switzerland.
MA is the only rider organisation with representative offices in every State and Territory (except the ACT). The structure is a Federation of seven State Controlling Bodies (SCB). There is a National Council with one delegate from each SCB and the President.
MA’s National Office is in Melbourne with a full-time staff. Together with the SCBs, their responsibility is to help riders enjoy their motorcycling to the full.
