Yves Van Heers Race Organisation-About the Rules and Future-
About the Rules and Future of our Sport
I sincerely feel that our sport need’s to be more spectacular, of course not for the people that love this sport, but for the people that see some pictures on TV or are spectator’s at races.
In every mechanical sport there is always a “King’s Class” like the Formula one in car racing or Moto GP in motorcycle racing.
These are the “Dream Classes” that attract the crowds, Medias and sponsors. Rookies are dreaming to be in these classes one day.
They don’t exist in our sport and that why we have been turning round in a circle for years.
The Possible Solution:
We create a “Prototype category” only for the best riders in the world, for factory teams and the genius tuners that we have already.
This category must stimulate the technological knowledge and also the riders that begin in the sport.
I think that when a young riders start in his first car race, he is dreaming to be Schumacher, driving for Ferrari.
This category must be with a lot of freedom in the rules that will give a free way for the tuners:
Maximum Capacity, minimum weight and maximum dimension and a maximum of freedom!
The problems that I See:
At the World Finals I see “Novices” competing with the same “Super stocks” as the “Pro” and this is not normal, this “novices” gat maybe 100 HP to match, and the “Pro can use 100HP more (If they have the right hull)
One of the other problems with that is that today, the “super stocks” engines is too powerful to be in a Stock Hull.
You can try to put a “Top Fuel” dragster engine in a stock Ford Taurus; it will be very dangerous to drive around the corners.
Of course, for the homologation in this class we would require only two units to be produced, Ferrari doesn’t produce 200 units of his Formula 1 car every year!
I know that a lot of people will not agree with my vision of the future, but this is maybe the only solution to break the circle.

Yeah that's cute, but who's gonna finance it?

lets stay realistic, I like Yves, he's a great guy and has good ideas, ideally I'd like to see that, but how is it going to happen when only ONE US rider goes to the Euro tour (on ONE stand up) and only a bunch of Euros can afford Havascrew?
A world tour like Formula one would be awesome but formula 1 has the dough, is backed up by major companies and is well structured, organized and sanctioned.
Last time I checked PWC racing had nothing of that.

The only problem is that the companies see no sales benefit from racing.
Sea Doo pulled out a few years ago and did not see a bit of difference due to it.
The only way it would work is if the big factory dollars were behind it.
