PICKERINGTON, Ohio -- The American Motorcyclist Association has published the 2015 sporting regulations governing the professional road-racing classes for MotoAmerica, the new home of the AMA Superbike Series.
The sporting regulations cover race-day procedures, event operational standards, scheduling conventions and the qualifying process.
"A number of regulations and procedures were adopted from world-championship competition," said AMA Director of Competition Bill Cumbow. "This supports our goal of developing American riders to compete on the international level."
The sporting rules also were designed to create excitement for American road-racing fans.
"One element that fans will enjoy is the inclusion of Superpole for qualifying," said MotoAmerica Race Operations Manager Niccole Cox. "Superpole determines the top 20 grid positions in two 15-minute shootout sessions, adding another level of challenge to the Superbike and Superstock 1000 riders. The sporting regulations also allow for two Superbike/Superstock 1000 races on Sunday at select events."
The rules are available at www.americanmotorcyclist.com/racing/roadracing/roadracingrules.aspx.
MotoAmerica is the new North American road racing series created in 2014. MotoAmerica is an affiliate of KRAVE Group LLC, a partnership that includes three-time 500cc World Champion, two-time AMA Superbike Champion, and AMA Hall of Fame Inductee Wayne Rainey, ex-racer and former manager of Team Roberts Chuck Aksland, motorsports marketing executive Terry Karges, and businessman Richard Varner.
