The 2017 Masters Superbike Championship rider grading changes are listed below.
This season the Masters will revert to using the MCUI rider gradings and will no longer run its own grading system.
The following riders are upgraded from Cup to Pro for the 2017 Masters Superbike Championship season.
Any rider not mentioned in the grading changes remains in the same class as they raced in during 2016. In addition to the above, the championship organisers reserve the right to add new entrants to the series to whichever class they deem appropriate and to upgrade additional riders once the season commences if necessary. Any rider switching from Superbike to Supersport will retain their grading as per the above list except in exceptional circumstances such as a relatively inexperienced rider due for an upgrade in Supersport who instead switches to Superbike.
