      Thanks.
      Ohhh, don't forget the three MNZ meetings in your chosen class in the twelve months prior to competing.

      Yer was thinking about that earlier but decided to get dept paid off this year and if going that far would like to have a bit of time to look around a little.

      The other problem is the time of year with lambing finishing and tailing starting were pretty busy so might look at the barry sheen next year after seeing how taking a couple of extra days off this year goes with the boss

      Here is a copy of the rule taken from MNZ website, it does not state "in your chosen class"

      Rule 22.8.15
      Before competing in a Street Race or National points Road Race meeting in any championship class, a rider must have competed in at least 3 lower level Road Race circuit events with in the 12 months immediately prior, or be observed by a recognised senior competitor or suitably trained MNZ official, clearance for which must be obtained from the Road Race Commissioner, proof of this will be from entries in the logbook or of observed, written clearance from the Road Race Commissioner, only senior Championship licence holders may compete on the streets.

      Oh, true dat. My mistake, as it was dicussed originally that it was in your class. I figured that's how the rule had presented in finished form.

      Assumption is the mother of all fuck ups.

      The rule 22.8 applies to national championship meetings not street meets.
      From what I'm told (Kevin goddard) a street meet licence is not the same as a champion licence.

      We are getting some clarification on rule 22.8.15 at the moment. Hopefully will have an answer in the morning.

      It's interesting, my new licence says "Senior Championship" on it, I didn't see any options for street racing specifically when I applied to renew it.

      Hang on. It's always been the rule to have to do three meeting before being able to do streets and Nats both. That has been amended for the meetings to have been inside a one year period. Why would they drop it for streets?

      If you can't do three in a year, Billy can approve you to race if he sees fit to do so.

      Yeah, a street meet licence is very different to a champion licence. One thing they do have in common is neither exists.
      A Full Licence covers Street, Island Championship and Nationals meetings.


      If it ain't smokin' - it's broken.

      Sorry skunk what I meant by licence is the champion and street EVENT licence the organisers apply for is different.

      I get where drew is coming from though with all the changes listed under the one rule appendix.

      Why would you contact somebody who has NO jurisdiction over the sport to get a clarification he's not qualified to answer,His only reply SHOULD be,Contact the relevant commissioner,Although in this case,If you bothered to actually read the rules,Instead of just parading them on KB,You'd already know that as Drew has pointed out

      For fucks sake what do you mean NO jurisdiction?.
      Is keven goddard not the south island road board member as it says on the mnz website?.
      As a road race board member shouldn't he know what hes talking about?.
      Just to be clear I didn't contact him for clarification I contacted him as race supplies to buy a sharkfin as I was wanting to enter the street race and he SUPPLIED the information I tried to post up here.

      I also HAVE actually read and posted the rule up on here and got confused with different advise but go ahead and insult me all ya like.

      Might go back to plan A and just not go-problem solved
