Scottish CB500s go national for 2018

In KMSC, Melville, News, Scottish Championship

SCOTTISH CB500 racers will be competing on the national scene next season after SACU chiefs recently revealed the class’s promotion.

Days after the organisation’s Road Race Committee met to discuss class structures for 2018, officials have announced that the fledgling CB500 class (also open to Suzuki GS500s and Kawasaki ER500s) will be added to the list of sanctioned national championships in the upcoming season.

Jimmy Shanks took top honours in KMSC’s class this year, while Jodie Chalk dominated the Melville category – but Scotland’s top tier CB title fight will comprise rounds at both Knockhill and East Fortune.

This year’s national championship included the Superbike, Super Cup, Formula 600, Lightweight and Pre-Injection 600 classes.

In addition to CB500s, Sidecars will also return to the Scottish Championship with a four-round series of their own, two at Knockhill and two at East Fortune, to be determined in due course by the Scottish Sidecar Club.

As one of the lowest cost series to enter, grids are expected to be full of the little 500cc parallel twin-cylinder machines next season.
