Default reconfigure

It doesnt matter. The Fort come to EFRA, IMFRA RULING on configuration of track measurements. Who cares about it. Club rules follows the embodied IMFRA RULES. IF ESTABLISHED wants to reconfigure track its up to to them. Be fair re onfigure track once a year or keep it as is and change it at the finals. Curveball at the drivers. There must be a reason why The FORT was chosen as a National Race. Fort maybe the fastest track in the US. Just keep up the good work.

Don't understand the " to fast " argument. I always thought this track was one of the smallest 1/8 tracks around. This track has and continues to make me a better driver. But it's hard to ignore the economical impact of having a national event. I was unable to make this years Winternats but have attended several over the years. I have grown to love this track but if it changes I'll understand. Can you maybe wait til I win an A-main here, or will we all live that long

I've traveled to quite a few races over the years as a hobbyist and I would respectfully ask that you keep the track the way it is (no change).

If they are requesting a track change they clearly don't have a handle on WHY people come to the Fort. It's to do exactly that to go fast.

In addition, this year, last year and the year before the attendance at the Winternats has been the same or better than the ROAR Nats, which would lead me to ask why would ROAR want to change something that clearly draws the same or bigger crowd than a chance at a National title?

A comment from Europe:
We see the same problem in Europe, that the EFRA and some national organizations want to “slow down” the cars. It is like they think we run full size cars that we risk ours and others lives driving. We also see more and more of the private races and series that are not bound to any association’s rules increasing in popularity. I could think it reflects that we drivers have had too much of this top-down control. It may lead to one thinking that the officers in the associations may have outgrown the spirit of the sport, sitting at their meetings. We drivers want to come together and have fun together. Rules we cannot relate to should never be presented. There must be rules but when they more and more are questioned then there must be ears to listen to the situation.

Well, that was a long side track. On the specific question about The FORT my response after being there one time and have had the time of my life and wanting to go back; no permanent change that affects future Winternats thanks….

… instead lobby the ROAR and other associations to keep a realistic control and only make rules that makes sense.
