i cant believe that this is 10 pages long.
but anyways.....
My name is Gus
I am an Amateur
I race the FL region
some of you know me
I am a nobody in the field still

but there is some stuff i would like to know.

the same frase keeps on being said. "bc experts spend more money" how is that?? if its true.

i dont have a problem that the experts get paid and we dont, not saying that i would not mind to make some extra cash to help me out in the sesson, but if the purses money is coming out from the fees meaning (everyones fees), i dont think its fair that we are all paying the same for them to make money in that race.
i get the whole thing of the exciting race and the no exhaust restriction to make it better, but if they want to make money you have to spend money, its like betting thats all.
and yes i work to race and still is hard for me to make it. i have the support and help from my parents as they dont want me to miss out any of the races.

i think someone said that why not charge more in the entrance fees for that race and then get the purses out of there and not pay 1 through 10 but up to 5th and that would be more of a challenge there. i know all the experts are going to get mad that i said to charge more in the fees and dont pay the whole grid.

btw please leave your insults out of the tread and if you can not say a profesional opinion then dont participate.
im not insulting anyone with this post but rather trying to understand and maybe make some ppl understand certain things.

I must be missing something.

If you want a purse payout become an expert. You can request that.

Amateurs on big bikes just don't make sense to me. If you can ride a big bike fast then you are an expert in my eyes. If you can't ride one fast you shuldn't be on it.

If you want to win get the best equipment you can afford and then sometimes that is not enough.

There are some in the lgithweight classes spending some $60K plus on their machinery. They better beat me on my $5K machine.

I race for the love of it. Give me money or prizes for winning? I won't deny it, but I am not gonna demand it.

Good post Mark.
Gus.. READ the 10 pages.. then get back to us. Most of your questions have been discussed and explained in the thread. On average, rider to rider, experts spend way more than am riders.

As Melk-Man pointed out, your questions have been discussed in the previous 9 pages and this page of this post, so I won't go in to detail, but people generally accept as a fact that in order to be competitive (read: Podiums) in the Expert class, let alone to win a championship, a rider must invest more money in equipment, preparation, racing activities, etc, than does a rider who seeks to achieve the same results in Amateur events.

Can someone save me the hour of reading and tell me if the amateurs will continue to be paid or has it been changed? I'm not really on one side or the other but I got an unexpected $75 in the mail yesterday and I'm not complaining about a free night at the bar for a 6th place.

Scott you forgot the smiley

For races run out of the main CCS office there is a contingency purse paid to AM in stand alone CCS weekends, On ASRA weekends there are contingency purses only in the ASRA pro races.
