Default Club Track Design and Implimentation 101...

Hey all...

I live in the Central Missouri area and we have a pretty big lack of what you would call a dedicated racing community.

We have the land and a decent track right now...

What I would like to see is an EXCELLENT track with alot of involvement.

Right now it seems that all the racers are spread out amongst 3 or 4 different clubs and tracks. How do we get everybody to show up and compete at ONE track? To me it's more fun to have a bunch of people to race against and an EXCELLENT facility than it is to have a bunch of OK facilities and only a few people to race against.

I'm looking for ideas to make things better and get more people to show up and race.

What are these big tracks doing to draw such a crowd? I was at the St. Louis Dirtburners a few months back and was absolutely shocked to see the kind of facility they had. It was absolutely UNREAL!!!

I want to know how to get that same level of involvement out of the locals...

Are Big Jumps and Technical corners what the racers want to see??

What kind of Dirt Composition do the racers want??

What kind of facilities should we try to have on site on just a regular club race weekend??

Let me know what you guys think.. I would really like to try and have a facility that would be considered for hosting an RC Pro Series event or something of that nature.

Thanx for the input guys!!
