i would figure that there would be a boat load of folks interested in the mini gp races with all the folks who do the monday night mini thing here and the folks who did the mini soccer thing....it is a world of fun to watch... it was some of the most fun I had with my clothes on last year....and they actually have some comfortable bleachers there where you can sit and be close enough to take pics from the stand and 1 of the 3 places where most folks go down will be right in front of you.....

those same people with fifdys could race in the superstock class if there bike was safty wired/had catch bottles and they had approate gear.....

wouldnt be half bad if there was enough of them to show up

TMGP is the only thing going on the west side of town... both of the other local tracks are down at angleton and by the dog track west of Texas City... this is the only thing in the Katy/westside area...
would be a great thing to take the kids to watch...
never know.. get the participation and support level up, we could see it get even better than it is now...
no cheaper racing and spectating is available.. .anywhere...

yes they are...if your bike is ready and you have the gear, you can take the riders course that morning and get in your first race that afternoon.... see you there...
your girlfriends dad should be able to tell you all about it... or you can go to the TMGP website...right after the riders school, there will an hour on the track reserved for first time riders to the track to practice before they open the track for practice for everyone else...

this is the kind of thing you bring the grandkids to, the grandparents to...
the neighbors kids to...the kind of thing that if you are not racing you can sleep in and go to, the racing itself starts at 12:30... have a later breakfast,,, have a brunch and still get to see all the fun....
invite your pastor... invite your mistress, introduce them to each other....

so are you both thinking of buying one and doing sprints and possibly getting up an endurance team, or are you thinking of buying one together and doing an endurance team bike... either way would be fun...
your daughter would like watching... from the bleahers there at katy part of the track is right up on you... almost close enough to spit on the bikes,,, but don't...
