WORCS Racing is excited to announce a Pro Main Event format change. In 2011, there will be two races per weekend for the pros. One on Saturday and one on Sunday at noon. Each paying full points and pro pay as well. The races will be 1 hour plus 1 lap on some of the toughest off road courses out there. Both pro events will be combined for an overall round winner with Sunday’s event being the deciding factor for tie breakers. This new format change will be very exciting for the spectators and the fastest racers in off road racing will be looking to go even faster. Hot pits and pit strategy will be vitally important since most bikes need fuel right at the 1 hour point. Due to the variety of WORCS race tracks, race lengths will vary between 1 hour and 8 Minutest to the longest at 1 hour and 26 minutes. A bonus item for the Pro Class is a new pro payout schedule designed to pay deeper into the field so the privateer Pro can chase the title all year long as well. There will be a $500 top privateer award at each round ($250 per day); so when a privateer does well, they will get paid handsomely. There will also be a top privateer of the year cash bonus in the amount of $1000.
Exciting changes are in store for the highly competitive Pro 2’s! Pro2 & Pro2 Lights racing is where the future Pros hone their skills.
The Format for Pro2: Top 12 racers from the 450A class and the top 12 from the Open A class. The Pro 2 class will earn weekend trophies and the prestigious WORCS National Championship.
The Format for Pro2 Lights: Top six Pro 2 lights will be allowed to qualify from both the 250F A class and the 125A Sport class for a total of 12 entrants. The Pro 2 Lights will earn weekend trophies and the prestigious WORCS National Championship.
