Am I missing something? Is the current system about to fail? Will CCS need to make a large investment to keep the current system up? There's some 375 racers in the Atlantic region... is it reasonable to say that across the US, some 700 CCS racers would need to purchase transponders?. As a whole, do we NEED to make a $300k investment into this? Doesn't seem like everyone has a big fat racing budgets lately...I'm definitely one who started racing CCS over WERA as a transponder tipped the scales. If I had one, I would consider doing WERA races that fit better in my schedule then out of conference CCS races that were tough to make. Its not that I'm being cheap, it just seems like the wrong time with the economy. I know 2 CCS racers who are cutting out race weekends due to budget.
I agree with what Eric Kelcher said in another thread: "There are some transponders/transmitters in pipeline that use existing track loops that have lower cost than AMB. With the life of both the original Westhold transmitters and AMB transponders reaching their end of useful life I would wait on word from Kevin before rushing out to purchase a personal unit."
Maybe I'm alone on this... but the way that I read the Click Here for your advanced copy of the License Renewal Mailer, I don't think that me in the MidWest will need to buy a Transponder. Well scat, I don't know... I'd like to hear an official word on this before I go & buy one... as it seems to be up to speculation at this point.
