CCS Racing - contingency money

I feel almost stupid for asking this quastion, but call it "planning ahead."

I have decided to start propping up the back of the CCS grids with my 600RR. As of now, it's basically bone stock. As I ad go-fast parts, I figure I would do so in a manner that might net me some contingency cash - in the event that lightning hits 40 or so other riders and I actually end up on the podium...

Here's what I have so far:

Leo Vince
CCS Novice and Expert
1st-$75, 2nd-$50 and 3rd-$25 (company credit)


Perelli
CCS Novice
1st-$70, 2nd-$50 3rd-$40 4th-$30 5th-$20

Dunlop
CCS Novice (SS and SB)
1st-$60, 2nd-$40 3rd-$30

Hotbodies
600 SS and SB Amature
1st-$50, 2nd-$40 3rd-$30 4th-$20 5th-$10

Vesrah
600 SS and SB
1st-$40, 2nd-$30 3rd-$20 4th-$10

Honda
I can't find anything that lists payout, but plenty of applications

I've found a few forms online that list payouts for associated sponsors, but they are all out of date or for other race orginizations. If somebody could simply provide me a link to an updated CCS list, I would really apreciate it!

Thanks!

Sucks the GT races don't pay out any more. That pissed me off when I heard that.

Wow...

My imagination was convinced that you could actually have a profitable season on contingency $.

Apparently, you'd need to podium in every event (on three completely unique bikes)... just to pay for tires and gas. Damn. Seeing those numbers reminds me of those For Love or Money NB commercials.

Sorry - I don't have anything useful to add to your thread. Perhaps EMR can get you into our "beer for finishing in one piece" program? I'll look into it.

Yea, he's racing in the hardest class too with the largest grid of bikes. Middle Weight is nuts!

Which one would be easiest? I've entertained the idea of taking the 749R out and doing a few races, which would put me in middle weight, right? Is this a bad idea?

You can save more money by joining team privateer. You get the stuff WAY cheaper than list and it's easy to join.

Contingency money usually isn't cash, it's certificates towards the product. So, hotbodies contingency is only good for buying there stuff. You can buy it just to resell though. And with tires that's not a problem since you'll need them anyways. Unless you are slow like me, and a set of race tires lasts all season!

bike contingency/payout is usually only for the latest model. Keeps you buying the newest bikes to chase the money.

easiest would be any ultralight class as there are like 2 fucking guys in that class so you'll always podium BUT I believe there is a limit of how many people have to start the race for you to be eligible for contingency. I think you're eligible for mw and above classes and supertwins. I may be wrong. It can't be as bad as me racing in mw class on a 250.

If a person were fast and had a new 'Priller, things might be good
From the CRA website:
Aprilia will be paying out the following schedule based upon season championships.

Super Twins Expert - 1st $8,000, 2nd $2,500, 3rd $1,500
Super Twins Novice - 1st $2,500, 2nd $1,500, 3rd $750

Life has no instruction manual. Parts and labor can be impossible to find. Many go down the road with parts that are in need of service. A breakdown is eventual.

I think your 1000DS is eligible for LW, 749 would be middleweight.

Ducati is selling new, non street legal 1000 SS for about $8K for LW. Pretty much an SS without headlights or lights, just a hole. I'm considering this, cause I can sell the plastics for a premium, buy race plastic for it and have a damn good track bike.

ST is a dying class unfortunately. I managed to finish 4th overall and I missed 4 races, usually finishing last. I did get a 5th place in the rain though in that class.

I've heard about the new SS. It would be an awesome track bike, and a lot less painful should it get broken.

Someone told me once that LW isn't as "nuts" as MW Novice. He said something to the effect that racers in MW will intentionally try and cause you to crash. Any truth to that?

Wow, sorry to hijack, maybe this should be a thread of its own

edit disregard, moved to new thread. You may now resume your thread in progress

No one intentionally try to make you crash. The problem is there is such a wide ban of expeirance in the novice ranks and some people ride way above there limits which makes it hairy. LW classes are alot of fun and just as competitve.

Contingency is exactly that - "contingent". Read the fine print.

Buell is offering a great program, too bad I could campaign TWO SV's for an entire season on the cost of buying/outfitting a Buell.
