Any suggestions for 2012?

This is a discussion about Any suggestions for 2012? within the 2WheelSpeed section, where you will Hardcore Dragbike Series supported by PsychoBike Members WorldWide!; Open a can of worms here I'm sure. Any changes or new classes ppl would like to see in 2013? I have a few ideas but want to see what everyone thinks first.

    I feel everything is pretty good except the et portion, more street bikes would run if it was seperate from the drag bikes in the end. Also need to get the schedule out sooner then last season but I know that's more the track then it is you. but you already have to schedule on weekends NHRDO is not going on and there dates are out already. Hopefully the bike count comes back, I be honest it would be nice to have some guarnteed money for the index classes to try and get bikes back, I hate to be like this but for the payout in 8.90 and 9.50 it's not worth the drive or spending the whole weekend racing. I understand that would take some sponsors but that might get the bikes back. two days of full racing is still better in my groups book rather then Q on saturday and then racing on Sunday we have no desire to do that. Have you thought about maybe throwing a different track or two in there as well? Cordova? union Grove? Maybe a SWB heads up shoot out, Hell I'm just throwing ideas at you

    Street and drag Et will separate classes for sure. All classes should have a guarantee payout then bike count will be added to it. Working on dates now hopefully have them by Xmas. A few vtwins/Harley classes or weekend will be added. Thinking about a no clocks class with very few rules stock clutch,3in gc,heads up. I'm all for any new classes but gotta have the numbers to support it. Along with doing a few night time races.

    Other tracks would be cool but most of them already have a bike program and don't want to readjust to our entry and payouts.

    Absolutely need guaranteed payouts to bring back the bike count. I also strongly believe there needs to be a greater point reward for winning the final round other than the three points rewarded for third round win. I feel you should also get the ten bonus points for being able to stage the next round for a total of 13 points for winning the final in the third round, 14 points for the fourth round final, ect. We get 16 points for qualifing #1 and only 3 points for winning the final in the third round.

    The bigger class turnout the points are working great. It's down to the last day and final rounds for the champions. Keeps guys coming back every event.

    I think you will get LOTS of interest with the "clocks off" racing. Heads up, run what you brung after the class racing is over should go over very well. They can get test hits during the day between round action in T&T. $40~$50 entry and minimal tech...

    I would like to see some TNT on friday night under those rented lights. Some Saturday night grudge racing might attract some people too.

    agreed with the grudge racing, if the track is good (like it alwas it....) it should attract some big names and some big hp bikes. Spread the word if thats something your interested in, more publicity more racers!!!!
