2022 SOUTH AUSTRALIAN CHAMPIONSHIPS – DISCIPLINE AND/OR CLASS REQUIREMENTS
Over the past few years in South Australia, there has been confusing ideas as to what constitutes an ‘official’ South Australian Championship, in regards number of entries, and what should only be considered as a ‘support’ class, and especially if numbers don’t reach an acceptable number of entries.
At the December Sports Manager’s meeting, there was discussion on this topic, and specifically in regards the number of entries to constitute an official South Australian Championship Class, and across all disciplines.
After much discussion, it was put forward that from 2022 the following would be implemented across ALL disciplines;
For ALL SENIOR SOLO classes – the requirement to be classed as an official South Australian Championship will be 80% of the Australian Championship requirement for the relevant discipline.
For ALL JUNIOR, SIDECAR & WOMEN’S classes – the requirement to be classed as an official South Australian Championship will be 60% of the Australian Championship requirement for the relevant discipline.
It has also been stated and passed, that in regards to a Championship Series, there has to be this minimum requirement of starters reached in at least 50% of the rounds – so 3 rounds of a 5 or 6 round series, 4 rounds of a 7 or 8 round series.
The 2022 SA Championship requirements are as per the chart below;
This was moved and passed by all of the Sports Managers present, and ratified by Motorcycling SA for 2022.
