Matt I think your right. From what I heard IAME wants to discontinue Leopard. The only thing stopping it would be US market. Im sure there are enough Leopard engines and parts at shops in stock to keep it going for a few years. At what point do they stop running Leopard. Most likely when dealers have run out of parts.
At some point National level they will change to x-30. Club tracks will allow Leopards for many years to come I would think.
Just like the Sonik and other Tag engines, it will be a boat anchor.
Dennis I road race CES series and dont believe Ive seen an X-30 on track. Maybe WKA racers have raced them. I would think they would do good on a road track. Us CES guys love our Rotax engines!!!
