Appreciate it.

I would have if GW didn't shut it down for obvious reasons.

That was the plan.

Steve,

Almost certain that announcement isn't saying Holly Hill is going anywhere. At least, I haven't heard that from anyone and I talked to Greg just a few days ago.

Just the 'My Series' racing series is all that's going away.

Never forget that first place goes to the racer with the MOST laps, not the racer with the FASTEST lap

I believe the My Series track owners may be getting together later this week to discuss the various "issues" so hopefully My Series will continue in some form for 2017.

A question:

 

Why should the track owners be making the rules for a "traveling" series, shouldn't the racers make their own rules or adopt an already existing set (like the Outlaw rules). The track owners need your business when you come to race, they should have no problem with this.

 

Cheers

Track owners run the series, so they want to make sure things like tires and bodies used are available from the distributors they buy from. The idea is anyone can come into the shop and be able to purchase the parts everyone is using, plus it generates part sales for the shops and God knows every slot track needs to sell as much as they can to keep the doors open.

The flexi series was run by racers before My Series was made.

It didn't work out for numerous reasons.

I think a lot of the problems that have occurred could have been avoided with better communications between the track owners as well as the racers.
