you should have several good opportunities coming up...
looks like 4 race weekends there this year...

last saturday when Steve and I were over getting a few laps in, if you had been there you could have got shots of both my lowsides... kind of why I did not want anyone taking pics of the first time out on the new bike at a track new to me, but it was a blast... you could have laughed with me...

those were some nice pics, and i remember seeing at least 3 of those bikes in Oct...
there has to be more of us than this here though...where are the rest...I am a little bummed that some of the folks who were going to get bikes ready for this season changed their minds... it would have been fun to a bunch of newbies besides me out there on the 17th, maybe then not everyone would be lapping me...

its like that almost every year...alot of people wanna do it but not to many show up

it would be awesome to have more people come out

wonder what the major thing that holds them back from doing it

its cheap to race, I can do 7 sprints at every race pay my half for the endurance race, gas, food and hotel if its in denton for the whole year and only spend about what someone would spend on 1 cmra weekend

I'd been racing a few races each season.

This year I'm passing my bike on to my son to use in the F7 races. My daughter will be racing the scooter class and in the girls races.

I might do a few F7 expert and F7 heavyweight races this season.

There is the problem, I love endurance racing, but dont have the teamates that can show up to every race. I like sprinting, but dont want to race on Sunday and have to drive four hours to get home and be at work Monday morning.

And since I am complaining, TMGP needs to have a "spec class" something like XR100 with no mods other than tires. Currently, this is just like any other series, you have to spend lots of money to be competitive. Back when YSR's were the norm, you could go out and race and have a chance, now if you don't have 25 horsepower, you will get run over down the straights.

But you know, like they say, "this is a dictatorship, not a democracy"
