This schould be a verry verry good race! Really nice facility, and a great track. I think a lot of good drivers will be there, and its super close to the airport in Amsterdam! Only 10 or 15 minutes!

Really looking forward to this race, and I hope a lot of you will also join.


See you there!

Hi guys,

Thanks for starting the thread Rick. I am very excited for the ETS series to get rolling. We will be in Denmark next week then to Heemstede in April. Talking to many of the top racers last week in Bangkok. Many of them are planning on making the trip for the series.

Our plans in the ETS is to bring a fun and enjoyable race series to different parts of Europe.

If anyone has any questions, please feel free to leave a post and I will be happy to answer them.

Hope to see you guys at Heemstede.

Thanks,
Scotty Ernst

HI Luke,

Unfortunately holding a race in the UK was not possible due to the costs of putting it together. We tried to look at both an indoor carpet race or use an outdoor facility, but with the cost of tents, generators, table chairs and other fixed costs, made it not possible for us to do it this year.

I have hoped for over 3 years to bring a world caliber event to the UK and my hope continues. We will continue to look for options that will allow us to do this.

I hope you get a chance to participate in the ETS, it is going to be a lot of fun.

Thanks
Scotty

Hi Tony,

Looking forward to seeing you also. From what I have seen at the track, it is going to be a great event. And with the live coverage we are going to have, we will have everyone watching. I am confident the weather is going to cooperate. See you soon.

Thanks,
Scotty

Stew....

I am just as sad as you. I have been wanting to do something for the UK crowd, but this year we could not make it happen. Don't think I am giving up, not at all. If we can do it, we will make it happen. It will be looked at again for next years ETS, so keep your fingers crossed that we can make it happen.

LRPCYCLONE: you are right. Looks like we will have some great names at the race. I am very excited to be able to announce a race at this great race track.

Look forward to seeing you there.

Thanks,
Scotty

I hope many drivers will be there, driving at 90+km/h is something amazing that not many tracks in the world are made for. There are already 21 entries (in 6 days) so it looks good.
See you then.

Hey scotty why not keep South Africa in mind for a event in the future.
Great weather and with international currencies rather strong great value for money.
Centrally located to the rest of the world, the best weather and great poeple
