2018 Race Day Schedule - CHANGES

The upcoming issue of City Bike will have our upcoming Buttonwillow schedule for the March round printed in the center spread.

In 2018, the board has decided to try something new for the club; Saturday qualifying sessions for Formula 1, 2, 3, 4, and FP. Additionally, these races are now in the middle of the day, culminating with FP and the FP winner's circle. We've talked about giving all non FP formula classes an extra 2 laps each to further separate the prominence of Formula classes in the AFM, but we have not made that determination yet. Regardless, the new schedule layout and updated Formula classes will make a race day geared more towards bikes in class championships and Formula championships where we push competition among a wider range of bikes within each Formula championship.

I'm really excited to see how this all works out, but it's something we've talked about for years and are finally taking a shot at!

Long Live the AFM, 2018!!!

Sounds cool. Couple questions, Berto:

Is this for all rounds or just testing the waters at Buttonwillow?

Is it required to pay for Saturday Practice to get the QP session?

this excites me even more about 2018!! This is a great revision to the schedule by AFM in a positive direction. More qualifying than FP, and who knows, maybe after this is a success we can start expanding qualifying to other classes as well.

Oh, and i would love the extra couple of laps!!

Good job AFM

Berto can correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think it's going to be one single qualifying session. Your qualifying just comes from your best lap in regular Saturday practice.

According to the schedule posted on the AFM website, you would be incorrect



I'm looking forward to seeing and trying the changes!

So will novice and expert grid up based on lap time?
One winner with top novice?
I'm all for it.

That was my next question. Are we mixing Novice and Expert grids or still separate grids on same flag?

So far, separate flags...but we could change that I suppose.

I believe that will probably be determined by the number of bikes on grid

Separate flags? I thought we were doing same flag, but Novice grid started one row back from Experts. Or does it vary by class? I know my Novice 450 grid launches on the same flag as Experts.

Nick, for larger grids (like F1 which is primarily made up of 600's), there could be a separate start for Expert then Novice. Not sure we want racing of old days with 60-70 bikes all trying to get through T1 or T2 at Sonoma...but it was a lot of fun
