What is it that racers like the most? Trophy races, night races, dash for cash, maybe an enduro race (1.5 hour or first to 200 laps at @ 30 secs a lap). Make some suggestions and I'll gladly pass em on. I'm a big fan of night races myself but it's gonna start gettin chilly here soon. What defines a "big" race anyway, slapping a title on a day and calling it an event? If 70 people register at a club race I would still consider that a "big" race. We have way too much time left in the season not to set something up. Also, just to let everyone know... the track is still open on Sats for test and tune/practice. We still turn the computer and lap timer on and if enough people are there it becomes a race day.

il be honest i think the best thing to do is advertise around in car shops or on the news.

Looks like I answered my own question. Duh An enduro night race with trophies and a cash payout to 1st in Buggy and Truggy A main. The entry fee would be a lil steep but how flippin cool would that be?

Does that sound like a good idea or no. Who would be willing to shell out $30/35 for a race like that? Any input would be greatly appreciated.

i shelled out 245bux for a 24hr enduro up at jackson RC end of this mth. granted that includes a tt01 spec racer and an extra set of tires, bearings etc. but if shows what folks will spend for cool events that bring more interest than just a typical 'race meeting'

Do it!!! I personally would love a reason to freshen up my otherwise barely used 2.0 for a cool event like this!!!
