Practice groups suggestion....

How about keeping the session setup the SAME all year. Not this combining, some of them for one session and spliting them back up for the next? Thats what they did sunday at BHF for groups 1&2. First round they combined them (at second call as usual ::) ) then when the second session started, they announced they were separating then to separate practice groups. Why cant they just keep the practice sessions uniform all year? It would alleviate alot of confusion that usually happenes when they combine practice groups at the last minute.

Rob,

They were trying to give us more practice time by combining some of the practice groups that have a smaller numbers of riders.  This was a call by the race director.

When it was discovered that there were too many bikes when the group was combined, it was split back into the original formation.  

Dawn   :)

Well then the race director should announce it 15 minutes before practice starts. Not at 1st or 2nd call.

race director may decide to combine and seperate a practice group based on the number of people showing up for the session. So if a session remain small, they might combine 2 groups. If a particular session has too many people showing up on pit road, then they may split it. Its all done for track time and safety reasons. they want to keep the track density consistent, and it is hard to predict before the practice day, even with the best of intentions. When it rained at summit, they combined every group into one and had open track practice, then too many people showed up, then they split it to two.
