Pacific GP races in Washington...
There have been changes made to the pricing, and I wanted to clear the air here in case anyone was interested in heading down. There is no tax tacked on to the entry fees, so your total costs are as follows: 1st class is $85, 2nd class is $25, and 3rd class is free. You will have to rent a transponder for $10.00. So, your total to race two or more classes is $120.00. There are family discounts available. You can save $10.00 by entering 14 days in advance. This means that, besides the travel, the price is the same as a Tradex race, and it does have some cool benefits that make the trip worth it.
Look here for a good writeup of what the day offers: http://supermotojunkie.com/showthread.php?t=103204
Look here for a great race report from the first race of the PGP series: http://supermotojunkie.com/showthread.php?t=102486
It is a different kind of day, and it has different benefits than we are used to with any of our other clubs. Certainly worth a trip to try a race day there.
wow, sounds like they really have their shit together at that track. I'd actually like to go and see if i can help out and checkout how they do it...maybe learn a thing or two. Who's going down for this??
Another correction... you do not have to register early to save $10.00... first class is $75 no matter when you sign up. So, for $110 you get two or more classes plus the transponder rental. That means you get more for your money.
You guys do a GREAT all-around job up there in Canada... nothing to be learned. The race report is, believe it or not, an awesome perk in my eyes, and any track could do this. But, just try to get someone to pay close enough attention to write a good race report. Not easy. I don't know how Paul put all of it together, but it was impressive and I would love to see reports like that for all of our races. Transponders are cool, but his investment in transponders is paid back more quickly by using with the karts. Other than that, you guys run a very smooth event, especially given you have to build and tear down for every race.
Maybe you would see some background stuff that would help you out, so I won't say it isn't worth going for learning the way they do things. Certainly worth going for the racing. If anyone goes, it would be worthwhile to corner Paul and ask him to consider how we can all benefit from growing each other's series. Something to think about for next season. The Canadians have shown great support for the different US events, and I hope that the incentive to do that continues. I don't know what else to do to bring up more of us to your events. I've actually given up. Maybe I am not the right person to be advertising for you!
