They have to have some races and build up a healthy race program. Until we get some of their racers to actually join Retro racing, there is no reason to take races away from the shops that have supported us from day one. It would not be fair to them.

If we add them to the series, there has to be a good reason.

Driving three hours to race against the same guys as the last GRRR race is pointless in my opinion.

How about racing on something besides a Hillclimb, three tracks with the same layouts.

Anyway, was just asking.

The three hillclimbs in Florida are very different tracks. If you would race on these hillclimbs with a retro car, you would know that.

I'll add flexi and wing cars as well.

The horse has been lead to water numerous times but it won't drink.

Test, test, test and go test some more.
You're never fast enough!!! 💯 Lap times are the only truth. Everything else is just theory.

Preparation leads to separation.

Wish we had that problem around here :)  Consider yourself very lucky to have them near you. Go, race, have fun.

Avon Part is very close to the same layout at the other tracks. So Marks reply is void.

All 3 hillclimbs in Florida only look the same to you Mark. Not 1 handle the same, us the same setup or even the same tires.

Yes all three are very different indeed. 

All Three require different tires and car setup, same as Atlanta GA track as well.

We are currently working on new racers and customers to build up our track so we can come out and support all types of races and classes in this great state.  These things take time and effort and we are working on them.  I have talked to all track owners about races and will try to work with all in future.  i need to work on my own group of guys to participate and to support my track and organize races locally and weekly/monthly.  Without that we will fail in racing and owning a track.

Yes...having scheduled weekly race dates for your own track that stay consistent and don't vary will help in establishing your race program.

This way the racers know which days your running any particular class so they can start preparing cars accordingly. 

Even with regularly scheduled dates posted for the month it may take you several months of building each class. Have patience, keep your racers involved in determining what nights and classes suite them and your raceway. Good luck!
