ANDRA has rebranded the Top Bike category to Top Fuel Motorcycle for the 2014 season.
The rebranding comes after competitors made a submission to alter the name and build upon the image of their nitro-burning four-wheeled Top Fuel cousins.
The rebrand also brings the class into line with Pro Stock Motorcycle in terms of nomenclature for two wheeled racers.
ANDRA competition manager Brett Stevens said while the change would have no effect on class rules, he hoped it would better reflect the bravery and effort of competitors.
"To lie over a nitro-fed motor and accelerate to 350kmh in just six seconds takes courage not held by many so we hope the name Top Fuel Motorcycle shows that," Stevens said.
"Competitors asked for this name change so when the last rule changes process went around we were happy to oblige.
"Top Fuel Motorcycle continues to be one of the wildest categories in the ANDRA Drag Racing Series and with some big names rumoured to be coming back this season we can't wait to see what they bring in 2014."
Top Fuel Motorcycle has been a mainstay of ANDRA professional racing since the 1980s.
The first round of Top Fuel Motorcycle takes place at Perth Motorplex on January 10-11 alongside Top Fuel.
