    What does it require to become a Pro in the IJSBA?

    To all you racers out there. How to do you go from starting as an amateur or novice to turning pro? I remember back in my Bike racing days you had to earn a certain amount of wins or seconds in a season, to gain enough points to qualify to turn Pro. What are the requirements in the IJSBA or other race organizations to turn pro? and do you get a Pro license or card or anything like that?

    Read that but all it really tells me is, if somebody decides you demonstrated an ability. Who decides and what criteria is used? it has to be more organized and structured than this doesn't it??

    RECENT History has shown that they show up one day, with pro on their app, and that's about it.

    So Jim your saying all I have to do is register as a Pro, never having raced one race or proven myself. and get my IJSBA or APBA card or which ever one is required here, for the first time, and I can race with the big boy's?

    But you only do offshore racing, right????

    You can not just sign up as pro for closed course and go racing....You need to build up to it, but dont sandbag in the novice or expert classes....
