Travel is cheap.  Add the dates you want, and the regional series becomes a lot larger and then very expensive because of racing tires, racing fuel, etc.

Putnam hasn't had a CCS date since probably 1996 or so, I think.  And there's no camping.

Well yeah and that totally sucks with Putnam as that would be a great venue for sure. There is however camping nearby but I guess that would be a bit of a pain for some.

If it was, I didn't go.  Early in the track's "career" a motorcycle racer was killed there.  1996?  And Mr Diasio got really angry with CCS.  When he passed away, his kids took over, and they still seem to have similar feelings.

And didn't they boot out WERA too?

Guy might have died there in 1994, now that I think of it.  I raced more AMA stuff in 1993 and 1994...I raced ARHMA there in 1996 and got slammed and crashed in the last corner.  The armco was moved a year or so after the guy died the one year, and I remember thinking about that as I was sliding toward the barrier.

as i understood it, the manager of putnam got really wizzed off after CCS canceled a date they had set. but the guy that does my stickers had a brother that died at a bike race at putnam (may be the same guy) but he got hit by another bike after going down on his way out of turn 10. not that either of those details matter in the least. but i would love to see the issue between the two organizations fixed and have putnam on the schedule. i'm sure it would have one hell of a turn out.

I know that CCS has asked for dates.  It does appear to be something that the family has decided to do...no WERA or CCS or AHRMA.

besides, guys, really...  Look at some of the other orgs or regions where they have 1 or 2 tracks...  Do you want that?  CCS MW is not that bad at all.

The simple reduction of 11 weekends down to 9 will help most absorb the travel costs.  True, it won't help those who have tracks in their back yards which were scratched, but on the whole it will make it easier on the racer.  Do the math yourself and figure it out.

A race weekend costs about $2k.  $4k is a LOT of travel money.  As Dave mentioned, "Travel is cheap".

Look at it in an optimistic manner...

CCS did go to Brainerd in 1997.  I had schools there.

CRA has kind of a lock, and most CRA riders aren't interested in travel...hence, this year, they aren't  doing MAM.
