Welcome to the most modern and exciting motorcycle series in the United States! We provide the most up to date standards and policies, which guarantee safety, equality and fairness. The rules and regulations set forth herein are designed to provide for orderly conduct of racing events. These rules shall govern the conditions of all PanAmerican SuperBike sanctioned events. By participation in these events, all participants are deemed to have agreed to comply with these rules.

PanAmerican SuperBike (PanAmSBK)

By signing an entry form and license application, every competitor agrees to be subject to the rules of this book and any printed supplements. PanAmSBK rules come from you the racing community but since it is impossible to anticipate every possible circumstance, the official responsible for operation of each racing event will rule on any area of dispute that is not clearly covered by these rules by using common sense and fair play. The word of the official on these gray areas will be considered final.

NO EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES CONCERNING SAFETY, INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, SHALL RESULT FROM PUBLICATION OF OR COMPLIANCE WITH THESE RULES AND REGULATIONS. THEY ARE INTENDED AS A GUIDE FOR THE CONDUCT OF THE SPORT AND ARE IN NO WAY A GUARANTEE AGAINST INJURY OR DEATH TO PARTICIPANTS, SPECTATORS, OR OTHERS WHO KNOWINGLY, FREELY AND VOLUNTARILY ASSUME THE RISK OF SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH.

PanAmSBK values your input and prides itself on quick decisions and implementation. Please contact us regarding suggestions regarding rules written here within.

The PanAmSBK Three Basic Rules:

  1. Be Safe (anything that involves safety, do it. Riding, prepping, etc)
  2. Be Fair (Don’t cheat. It hurts your personal integrity and the series)
  3. Have Fun (If you follow the first two the last one comes for free)

PanAmSBK will run the following classes at regular weekend events. Some classes may be race together but scored separately.
