    Novice/ Rookie classes

    I'm looking at the rulebook and getting a little confused. In this case, I'm talking specifically about where a MW Superbike would fit. I don't see anything in the book defining what is considered a "Rookie". I have 2 weekends under my belt from 2011. Am I still a "Rookie" according to the rules? What about "Starter"?

    I see that LRRS has gotten rid of the Novice GT races? So are all of the Novice races 8-lap sprints?

    Going by what I see on the schedule, it looks like I can run Races 6 and 9 on Saturday and 5 and 8 on Saturday? (Also the Rookie race, but let's omit that for this discussion.)

    Is this correct?

    Plus you can sign up for the actual rookie race and get an additional 4 laps on the track if you want.

    For half the price of a sprint race or $30. You get to be wave 1.

    Re: Novice/ Rookie classes

    You can also enter any of the 1 (Heavy weight) races. So that means you can normally do one of the 1 races and three 2 races meaning a total of 4 actual races per weekend. I dont remember which ones though.... But basically 1 = heavy weight, 2 = middle weight... You can do any of the formula, starter, or whatever, they don't mean anything.
