Motorcycles and cars at Loring do cut the lines. As far as I know those competitors are working the event. If there is an issue with them ~~~  then it should be brought to the attention of Tim, Joe, Jesse or any of the officials.

I believe the same goes at Wilmington. Bring it up with the those running the show.

Well, as a bike guy and a car guy.... same motors run in both....  shocked I THINK I already expressed my opinion, but here we go AGAIN... There is already a plethora  of motorcycle classes, God only knows why anyone would think there should be more.... I guess deluded minds think racing is what you do with what you got if you want to set a Land Speed Record... NOT TRUE... if you want to compete you find a class you want to challenge and build something to race in it to set the record. 
Or you just find some class that has no record... there are probably 500 of them, and put a bike on the track that meets that class and go 19 MPH and set a record.   Although I think you have to go about 15 to set the slowest record in the book  shocked  I must defer to my friend Scott to tell us the actual number since he spent almost 10 minutes  on the track trying to keep his bike upright to do that rolleyes
So quit your whining, build something competitive, set a record, maybe get in the 200 MPH Club and bask in the glory of being the fastest person to set a record in your class since 1949.

and maybe a factory to bring their bikes out there. 

Isn't that sort of defeating your thought on another class?   If your $50,000 Ducati can't compete against what's out there now how do you expect to compete against a factory effort?   LSR sometimes requires a bit more than store bought HP.

Besides, the only $50,000 Ducati is either a 4 cylinder or horribly mis-priced (not counting collector pieces).  afro

Looks like a Christmas miracle has happened.

The 2017 SCTA elected board took an opportunity to review the rules changes and decided to research the M frame proposal. The board has made the decision to add the M frame classes to the menu of available classes for El Mirage competition. So now all motorcycle classes available at Bonneville are now open for records at El Mirage beginning in the 2017 season. One Caveat - M frame competitors cannot compete for the 2017 Motorcycle Championship. Your records will be good for lineup position.

Good luck,

Mike, you sound disappointed that the bike guys will get a boatload of sandbagging opportunities...
