Now 3t has canceled their event for Monday, again. Seems like alot of fishy stuff going on. Now their "not sure" if there will be any remaining events for this year. So as of now I'm hopping back on the "we just got screwed" wagon.

My heart goes out to you peeps that got the shaft, this sport costs so much to sustain. And for you to take the time to work for track time and then get hosed by an organization just sucks.

I made a couple 3T events and was very impressed by the professionalism, TA did a great job with it. Not sure what led to their demise, low attendance I assume.

This is a very tough market to make money, period. There is just too many orgs right now and a lot cheaper than a 3t day. Does this make 3t bad? No, but most track riders are cheap and aren't going to spend the money to ride/pay for a 3t day. So what does that do? Less money for the org and eventually out of business.

That wasn't the only reason for the failure of this org. People 'in the know' know who is responsible and what ultimately killed this org.



Thomas is a good dude and is trying the best he can to help.

I've got nothing bad to say about Thomas, and this year it's been obvious just how competitive and difficult it is to run a track day org. I wouldn't want to do it, I just like to ride at them.

Not with Track Tactics.

In 2 weeks the actual track will be holding their own Td for racer practice for the WERA race that weekend.

I hope it all works out for you, Craig. Sucks for everyone involved and I hope those who paid/corner worked get refunded.

If you have a credit from a previous event we can get you a refund. If you want to use it for NOLA you can. I told him if we have one person sign up for the last two events at NOLA we are doing it.

I'm not going to let you guys/girls get . I will fight this to the end for you.

There's still people who paid for trackdays like the Cresson, or ecr (can't remember which one it was) that got canceled and they're still owed CASH MONEY. Then there's the big cluster of TWS (Texas World Speedway) that was happening, then canceled, then put back on AND PEOPLE PAID IN GOOD FAITH then it got canceled again and people haven't gotten a refund for that date. So 3T SWINDLED a little bit extra out of being wishy washy with the TWS (Texas World Speedway) event(makes me wonder if that was the plan all along) Then there's people like me and many others who have corner working credits. I'm about that because I'm out a wasted weekend, but I'm mostly on the behalf of others who are out cash money. That's up! So what's going on with the NOLA event TA? Is it going to happen? Are YOU not going to let us get ? Are you still fighting or is the fight over and we truly are ? Some info would be nice. You WERE the person in charge. How about letting us know what's going on?

I was around too and lost some track days that I had corner worked for. Hopefully y'all get something back or at least an explaination if you don't. The two brothers from texas track days just dodged everyone.

It's a shame, and as a collective group we should find a conclusion.

As a group, people should be way more off about this. Has people over become acceptable? This is absolutely ridiculous! em! And if there's a question that I'm trying to stir the pot, its because I am. Not to create drama but to create awareness. People are getting and everyone's acting all to nonchalant about it. This is a big deal and we shouldn't stand for it.
