I'm all for supporting CityBike, but to be fair, we have a LOT of racers who don't live or travel to the bay area. Is it really fair to hide the schedule from them?

ETA I see Moose posted it up on the AFM site, so nvmnd!

Thanks guys. I (and the whole crew) appreciate it.

I feel like maybe I should clarify something here. We don't put issues online until they're in back issue status because we are primarily locally-focused, and we work really hard to support local shops, organizations like the AFM and live, in-person moto happenings. Anyway, the idea is that people go to shops to get their CityBike fix—always has been.

Obviously that creates some quirks in this particular scenario. Sorry 'bout that.

So, I've got to ask what the thinking is behind putting AFemme where you did? A fourth wave, with the Clubman nuts nearly around the track by the time the girls launch?

Just wondering what the thoughts were behind the choice.... Doesn't seem too popular with some of the girls but there may be opinions I'm not hearing that you have.

Afemme, like F50, runs the entire gambit of bikes in the club. We can have a 2003 250 ninja and a 2017 R1 on the track at the same time in the same class. It makes it hard to place those classes anywhere where they don't impact much or, become impacted themselves. Afemme and F50 tend to be less populated than the clubman classes so they were put behind the more populated classes. BW will tell us if we should change that for the following round/ rest of the season.

Looking at the schedule, we may be able to move some stuff on Saturday; maybe replace the F40LW in race 2 with Clubmen Heavy. Any suggestions are good.

Hello,

Do we have to signup and pay to practice on Saturday if we are required to qualify? Or is practice/qualifying included in the entry fee like the CVMA?

With the schedule change, I no longer have a race on Saturday and am trying to understand how to plan the weekend.

Saturday practice fees are separate. Sunday morning practice is included with race fees. This is just a guess, but I think if you missed qualifying, they would just put you at the back of the grid.

I think the question stems from the fact that qualifying is a separate session on the schedule - so do they need to sign up for the whole day for that one run, or not, which has not been clarified to my knowledge.

was going to write this on the facebook page but decided to try it here.

Can we shed some light on how all of this will work out before the weekend? For those who race multiple formula races. Does one time count for both races or are they directly affiliated with the qualifying session associated with that particular Formula race?

In regards to who can run in qualifying and who can not. Can you sign up for a formula race and NOT run practice sessions on Saturday AND still run qualifying on Saturday? If you're in a formula race you have a chance to qualify Saturday afternoon. If you miss qualifying you're sent to the back of the grid for the start of the race Sunday?

For clarity if you're not signed up for the race(s) you're not allowed to run qualifying. Or am I missing something?

I know a lot of questions but I was hoping to address it all from an overall perspective that others may be asking. Its not meant for any specific class or specific individual.
