Shooting the bull / Re: Ice Racing

It really was not a good winter for ice racing last year.  Hopefully this year will be different.

I know it's very early yet, but I am wondering if there is going to be any ice racing close to the Madison area this winter?
Assuming we actually have decent ice this year for more than a week or two I've seen a couple that are planned already... I know of at least 3 that were canceled last year because of bad ice conditions...

Please make arrangements to pick up your trophies at the last Blackhawk (September 23-24), if you are unable to attend.  Any unclaimed trophies will be sent back for recycling.

CCS Racing Discussion / Re: CCS at Roebling Road
« Last post by Woofentino Pugrossi on September 07, 2017, 06:40:15 PM »
We used to do Barber. Guessing the rental costs are insane there. Don't remember the last time CCS was there how big the turn out was. Road Atlanta is another insanely priced place. Think even WERA only goes there once a year. Race orgs are not gonna keep going to places that cause them to lose money.

Also theres what dates are available that coincide with the race org schedule that are not already taken by the tracks repeat customers. And with most tracks, except Jennings, car orgs and clubs are their bread and butter. Jennings is more of a trackday track. Think theres only 1 race org that does race there.

Would be nice to have a variety of tracks for each region. We used to have in the Midwest/Great plains region Heartland Park, Mid-America Motorplex (has a new name now), Gateway, think they even went to Hallett one year. This year we only had 1 event at Autobahn. Last year there was 2.

CCS Racing Discussion / CCS at Roebling Road
« Last post by f3racer on September 07, 2017, 05:49:38 PM »
I know this isn't new but why has CCS decided to drop down to 2 races at Roebling during the year. Wera runs there 5 times a year. I dont want to run Wera, but i would like more races there. Every time I'm there I see decent sized grids so its not like nobody shows up.


Replace VIR, since it is already in the Mid Atlantic and Atlantic regions. Southeast region should be Carolina MSP, Roebling Road, Jennings (not sure why it isnt being raced at all) and Daytona. Maybe Add Road Atlanta in there.


Now, after I look around there just seems to be so many tracks that CCS just doesn't go to. Unless I'm missing something. No Barber, no Road Atlanta, no Jennings,

CCS Racing Discussion / Re: Daytona 200 bike age limit?
« Last post by Doxgon22 on September 04, 2017, 10:06:43 PM »
There is no age limit.  I had (arguably) the oldest bike in the field last year, a '05 R6 with an '03 motor I got from a junkyard.  The guy in front of me at the finish (he was 41st, I was 42nd) was on an '05 Ducati.  Go for it!

CCS Racing Discussion / Daytona 200 bike age limit?
« Last post by britx303 on September 04, 2017, 09:48:58 AM »
Is there a model age limit for the 200? I thought I read that 2 years ago,that the bike couldnt be more than 6-7 years old. I dont see that,looking at the 2017 d200 rulebook

I think there are a few active BFR CCS racers from Ankeny and Des Moines. RPM would only be a 2hr drive for you.
Have fun and see u at the races

CCS Rules and Regs / Re: Ultralight Thunderbike Displacement?
« Last post by vance on August 30, 2017, 02:18:18 PM »
This past weekend at RRR every bike on the grid in the 300 GT got DQ'ed  :banghead:

Three R3s and one Metrakit. There would of been one more R3 but he was told he couldn't run in 300 GT during registration.
I was wondering when that would happen.  We're ok with it here in FL plus it's nice to have more bikes on the grid, but all anyone has to do is point to the bike and say no.  Not a very hard protest.  Wait until next year when the 300 is replaced by the 400.
IMO, a lesson should be taken from the other FL org regarding these ultralight classes, and before I post it and get flamed, I get the whole "everybody gets a trophy"....
Grid them all together, but in separately scored classes
250
300
320/390/metrakit
125GP
Whatever....  I've chatted enough with the guys running the FMRRA rounds, nobody cares if you're blatantly cheating, like slicks and pod filters on SS bikes, or in this case an R3 in 300GT, just run the next class up.  We're all out there together and it forms a huge grid but nobody gets butt hurt over someone else's faster bike.  It's a scalp if you can beat them, no harm if you don't.
I'll bet SuperLex is grinning from ear to ear when she passes an SV or whatever LWT bike thats gridded in the race in front of us.  It shouldn't even matter, they're not even in her race, but it does.


Edit: I do like Bruce's idea, but instead of trying to conform every bike to one race, just combine multiple classes into the same grid.  Easier, IMO
