MW and Blackhawk
« on: December 06, 2007, 02:51:05 pm »
I like BHF just fine. But another season coming up of mostly BHF again. I know it's easier said than done, but aren't there any other tracks!? :banghead:
I know there are a few TBA's but 3 race weekends in May!? :wtf:
Hopefully it changes a little bit!

I gotta admit some other tracks would be nice. Kinda like back in the days of GLRRA where they only ran at Grattan before they disappeared.

Some people would kill for those opportunities. 

Racers have regularly supports five to six races a year at Blackhawk for a long, long, long time.  They haven't at other Midwest tracks.  Or the tracks haven't kept up with maintenance.  Or the track costs too much to rent.

Add on top of that the ability of racers to compete in larger championship series...meaning, racers have been better able to support a regional series with fewer numbers of events compared to larger numbers.  That's even prompted CCS to have track championships at places like Blackhawk and Summit Point. 

Anyway, those are some of things that I've seen and what has shaped how I've raced.

I agree BHF is ok for no more than 3 races.  What about Autobahn S. or full, Gingerman etc... I'll probably do RA, BHF (3x), possibly Topeka and will race WERA at Gingerman.  Otherwise will be playing in the dirt on my KDX 200 or sailing in stiff breezes....

Don't know the story with Autobahn but I believe Gingerman was dropped for attendance. If the turnout is too small then CCS loses money, goes out of business, and then we don't race at all. The turnout at Blackhawk pays the bills. The 2 TBA races are combined with GP region, a way to add some variety in a format that will pay the bills.
