Default onroad racing in trouble in tampa area.b and b ready to end there onroad also

hey guys,

i spoke to dave at B and B hobbies and he is ready to close the doors on the onroad track and strictly just race off road. the lack of attendance is what is making him lose interest. my question to all of you is, how many of you guys would be interested in running on road at B and B hobbies? i was thinking once a month.i think if we get enough people together who are interested, i can see if dave would reconsider. please share your thoughts

I wish I could say I would be there to race, but I will support it anyway I can. Good luck and I hope you can make it happen!! We got to have something going on. Superior runs 1 time a month and it has worked for years. Maybe doing the same here will help out.

thanks guys.i would really like to see the onroad stay alive.my favorite class of all R/C is 1/12th.take that away and im a mess

i feel if we can all agree to meet up once a month and work with shops like supperior,fastrack and mikes races at minnreg to not race on conflicting dates,we can increase the turnouts for more exciting racing.we really need to all come together here and fight to keep onroad racing.with nice tracks like speedline and adrenaline closing,we really need to try to do our part and support the races when they are there for us to run.i dont want to look back in regret.

im sure some guys from up here wouldnt mind a once a month race, maybe we can get something going between them and strickland so we can get more attendence at both, since they are the last 2 permenent tracks around here maybe a point series back and forth between the 2 or trade off like b and b one month then strickland the next and go back and forth, Im all for getting attendece back in florida
just my input
take it or leave it LOL

a point series between the 2 tracks sounds good to me.even if we get 3 out of 10 racers make the trip,it will still increase attendance at both tracks.good input guys.i will talk to dave this weekend and see if he will want to do this.i hope he does.too many good tracks are calling it quits.i dont want to see another one.i know that dave said he is racing off road 2 weekends a month.we need to figure which weekend to run so it works with stricklands schedule

Superior the 1st Sunday of a full weekend.

FSEARA the 2nd weekend

PNP from the flyer are the 2nd weekend

HobbyWorld every Friday Night

FCC (minnreg) 25-26Aug & 24-25Nov

The once a month deal can work. Just need to find the time and local support.
