After much debate and consideration for it’s members, the SETRA Board and Officers passed the following rules for the upcoming season:
1) Repeal using the AMA ranking system as the ranking system of the 2017-2018 series.
2) Return to the original SETRA ranking system with the addition of 2 other rules stating that: A.) No member may advance or demote more than 1 ranking level from one
season to the next AND B.) Members racing 60% or more of either NEPG or GNCC
national events before the first scheduled SETRA event may use their
AMA ranking in SETRA Enduro and Hare Scramble events. If a member is
racing in a NEPG or GNCC class that doesn’t contribute toward AMA
advancement points,(eg 60+ class, no a,b,c), that member will ride
their SETRA Ranking.
These proposals let local racers stay in their National class for
the remainder of the National season and their AMA ranking for the
entire SETRA season, therefore, not moving a rider up too fast, so as to not
be competitive on the national level. By having the SETRA ranking
system we maintain control of our riders ranking. Any protest of a
ranking can be handled by a competition committee that consists of the
vice president of enduro or hare scrambles, depending which series,
and 4 board members chosen by them, not to include any board member
racing in the protested class.
