    I'm under the threshold on my tard and am shooting for the same on the gsxr. All the other things you're talking about are your concerns, not mine.

    If you are thinking ROTY eligibility, the rules only state that you must bump if you are eligible, not that you must bump. So you can still get the most points and be an amateur. They also list thinks like panel opinion and rider deportment as factors... so they can choose whoever they want.

    You said 19s and white plates... just saying, 19s is not bump-eligible. Need 17s.

    I'll be sure to clearly articulate which race bike I'm referencing in every comment going forward for the armchair quarterbacks.

    Technically you need to beat 1:17, so 1:16.999 or faster

    Re: Loudon PB's

    I am asking this out of serious inquiry and not some attempt to be a smartass or giant flaming douchewaffle. I thought those times you are quoting were the threshold for auto-bump or at least where it raises the flag to Graham and whoever else may be involved to take a look at this person for moving them into EX. I am fairly certain that a rider can request to be bumped up to EX well before meeting those thresholds. I know for a fact that there are experts in the MW class who regularly run higher than a 1:17.0.

    Those thresholds are for AMs requesting early advancement. After 15 completed races, the normal advancement request process is in place in which case it's up to the rider to document and show they do 'median lap times consistent with the Expert riders' which is a much wider target than the 110% of the class lap record for early bumps.

    Right, the threshold if requesting an early advancement. As spelled out in the rule book.

    AS others have said, there is no auto bump. LRRS rule 5.5.2.4 states you can petition to advance with consistent times below the 110% threshold.
    This rule has only been in a year or so... before that it was easier to advance. Along with rules like class winner must advance etc.

    Re: Loudon PB's

    01:42.548 on the EX250!!! (That's my LRRS PB on that bike, I did manage 38's at track days)

    Can I bump yet?

    Ok, here are my excuses:

    - I'm slow
    - Stock bike with street tires
    - No practice on bike, just jumped on and ran the 300 Challange race
    - No chance of catching anyone, so no point in pushing too much. Didn't want to risk being on the edge knowing fast bikes would lap me.

    Regarding advancement to Expert : end of season we will be somewhat exercising our right under rule 5.6.1..... there now, you are going to have to find a rule book.
