My point exactly, club racing fell apart to big race series. But at least we can pick up a sponsorship, if we pay more that is

How hard is it to get into the "A" main in any electric class. Open all the race data pages on the last "race results" thread page, all but one in electric classes had A mains only. No C or D mains either.

I guess I answed my own question, the real racing is at the big races!!!

There will be b mains and maybe c's through the winter

Comp is super serious in that class, and at the four the slash class has been crazy from what I hear.

This series should be great. Seem's to get better every year. I can't wait to see all of the south and east guys. Didn't do the Nct so hopefully I will see them at the ECT

Still summer kinda , is the not the best time to see multi mains at Trcr ...

BDW not all the results are always posted...

Tuesday`s does have A & B ..not every time , but they do occur more than not ...


Like I said , Club racing is far from dead , its still around and times are changing ....

Racer`s are beginning to realize that club racing value is hard to beat and has been the most affordable form of racing available...
