Learning Curves Questions

Do I need to fill out any CCS applications or anything before attending learning curves?

No you do it on site, bring your CC or Cash for the membership and also to sign up for your races.
They have a master number list with them and you can than pick your number.
Make sure Greg is going to be there, so he can give you stickers for your number plate... or just use a big black marker...

Just register with Learning curves that you have a spot...

Black duck tape or electical tape works fine for your first race weekend. You can buy #'s after that.

From the rulebook ( to be found at www.ccsracing.us )

5.3 NUMBER DISPLAY REGULATIONS


5.3.1 Numbers will be assigned by CCS or ASRA.

5.3.2 Expert CCS Sprint Riders will use white display areas or plates. Amateur CCS Sprint Riders will use yellow display areas or plates.

5.3.3 All ASRA Expert riders will use white display areas or plates. All ASRA Amateur riders will use yellow display areas.

5.3.4 Number plates, or number display areas, will be a minimum of 10 by 12 with radiused corners.

5.3.5 Painted displays or separate plates.
A. Front display may be painted only if the front section of the fairing is of adequate size and display is clearly legible. Otherwise, a 10 by 12 plate must be mounted. The front display area must be unbroken by air intakes, and only one number display will be allowed.
28
(1.) If the rider chooses to position the front number display to the side of the air intake, that number display MUST be on the same side as the scoring station used during each event. (i.e. if you are competing at Summit Point, the front display must be on riders right. If you are competing at Roebling Road, the front display must be on riders left.) It is the riders responsibility to have the number display on the correct side before coming to Tech Inspection.

B. Side displays may be painted on rear body work only if that body work presents a basically flat surface of adequate area. Otherwise, a 10 by 12 plate must be mounted. The side plate must be mounted on the seat or tail section and to the rear of the rider. Mounting must be high enough to insure that the number is clearly visible when the machine is leaned (cornering) without interference caused by rider extremities or machine parts.
(1.) If the tail section profile does not allow the machine to comply with Section 5.3.5.B, a single number display on the top of the tail section may be installed and orientated to be read from the rear of the machine .
It is the rider’s responsibility to have the number display correct before coming to Tech Inspection.

5.3.6 Numbers must be black and approximately 8” high and 1” wide, of standard block lettering with no shading, outlining or serifs. Number must be spaced approximately 1” from each other as well as the edge of the plate or display area. 6” or 4” numbers may be used on the rear plates as long as the number is clearly visible at speed. All numbers on any display must be the same size.

5.3.7 The following samples show the type style required to comply with these rules:
l 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0

5.3.8 Number plates must be free from any stickers or sponsorship logos except as required by specific class rules.

5.3.9 Final approval of non-compliant number display will rest with the Race Director or Referee.

Also, looking through pictures very few people are actually running 8" numbers up front, that's pretty huge and those of us with intakes taking up half the front of the bike it'd be pretty much impossible. I'm planning on 5" numbers up front and 6" in the rear, hopefully that'll be good enough.

It's always the mood of the tech-guy... When I got my # from Greg the one had looked like this: 1 Tech guy tells me it has to look like: l so I had to cut the nose off... Greg goes there 10min later with his 1... and no problems...

Jeremy, make the numbers as large as you can. Corners have to be able to read them as you go by or come at them or if your end up in the pasture somehow. Also scoring still does manual scoring as a backup to the transponders (they have gone down before) so the fronts have to be large enough for teh tower people to read as you go sailing by at 130.

I'm not crazy, my mother had me tested.

They'll be as large as they can be.

It doesn't count as a pass when the person is doing their victory lap
