Default Superbike Race (open to all) - Sriperumbudur Track, Chennai in Jan 2015

I am sure that most of the hardcore SBK owners know this already, but thought I will post it here just in case.

Madras Motor Sports Club is organising an SBK Race Event - first time ever in India - as part of the National Racing Championships at the Madras Motorsport Race Tracks - Sriperumbudur, Chennai.

Its open to "novice riders" only (being the first time).

The Entry Fee : INR 5,000.00 (which will be refunded when the bikes are through Scrutiny and in Parc Ferme (pre race/practice holding pen).

Racing Leathers and gear will be compulsory.

Bikes have to be street legal in India (Registered with any RTO in India) and Original Registration documents will have to be presented at the time of Scrutiny.

I may be wrong , clause says bikes have to be street legal . How are these bikes in the pictures street legal when they do not have headlights, mirrors , no registeration number in the front ?

Race 1 (6 Laps)

1. Sandesh P (27) Total Time 11:42:051 Best Lap 1:55;482 Best Speed 115.8
2. Siddhanth S K (94) TT 12:16:518 BL 2:00:370 BS 111.1
3. K Yokeswaran (6) TT 12:23:909 BL 2:01:036 BS 110.5

Race 2 (6 Laps)

Same finish as above. Unfortunately I didn't get the timing.

12 bikes in all on the first day and 8 on 2nd day (2 crashed on the first day and the riders were ruled medically unfit for the next day)

The requirement was that the bikes had to be registered with an Indian RTO. This was more to ensure that the bikes were legal imports or sold legaly in India that is all (I believe). The word Street Legal was used by me in my post rather than in the Race Regulations or Sporting Regulations,

So not having mirrors etc. doesn't make it illegal as the bikes were on a private place rather than in a public road.

The fact that the riders were novices shows on the timing. Yes, Sandesh has been racing on 160cc class before but largely he was up racing on the big one for the first time (track days not counting). The 160cc and 250 cc classes normally does this track in the range of 1.45 - 1.50 usually.
