If you're frying motors, you're geared wrong. That hasn't changed since the brushed days.

Giving stuff away and lowering entry fees directly contradict each other. You can't add value with less money. Besides, the product of a race promoter is racing. If the quality of the event is high racers don't care about the rest. There's a thousand outdoor tracks with porta-potties that are a few weeks past due to prove that.

While I think there should be a privateer class, I know plenty of privateers that run right with the best sponsored guys. If this happens, I hope the sportsman drivers won't be dismayed when they don't finish too much higher than they did the year before. The hobby is expensive but the equipment to win at the highest level is available to anyone willing to spend the money and there's plenty of them out there. I think if you're sponsored you should race against the best racers and in the expert classes (whatever those are).
