Revisions announced for 2008 AMA Sports Road Race Grand Championships

PICKERINGTON, Ohio--The American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) announced revisions to the rules package for the 2008 AMA Sports Road Race Grand Championships, set for September 19-21 at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio. Changes include a different class structure, different class groupings, allowing minors 16 and older to compete and restricting entry to expert-ranked riders only.

"Following our announcement of improvements to this year's program, designed to offer additional track time, more value and easier signup, competitor feedback suggested additional changes to make the event even better this year," said AMA Racing Senior Director Bryan Cohn. "These new changes reflect our desire to offer the best possible racing experience we can."

Riders can expect as much as 1 hour, 55 minutes, of track time during the two race days of the event for each class they enter. In addition, a Friday practice will offer additional sessions, allowing for up to three times the track time compared to previous years. Combined with the elimination of gate fees this year, the 2008 AMA Sports Road Race Grand Championships is one of the best values in road racing.
