Awesome info Shawn , might be able to catch a few of these. Hoping anytime after the October round I might be a go.

Thats a pretty sweet track! We need to get down there and support these guys and they in turn are gonna try and do the same for us this season coming up! Its time to band together or no ones gonna be riding anywhere if we let this sport dwindle away to nothingness. We dont need a 'new "real" series' we need to put some more effort into the ones we already have.
The term "real series" was used to refer to a Pro-Series in the States from the lack of having one since the shut down by the ama in 09 ! And yes, some of us ran a.m.a rounds in Infeneon and South Point that year. It's obvious to me that when you took my quote into your post it was more of a personal attack at me for refering to it as a "real series" on a recent post!!! Since you obviously want to get into the subject of "your" local series, let it be known that we have been the ONLY LOCAL PEOPLE to consistently run WHR, PGP and the local series, simultaneously, period... and have results to prove it! In case you tend to forget, I was also financially involved with "your" club as many many others also long gone. The achievements done by the original committee have NEVER been surpassed and NEVER will because their word was GOLD. There was no favouritism in regards to sponsorship (oh yes I went there) as I seen in recent years or anything else like that. To tell you the truth, as you all know, my list of complaints is truly immense and as I was told track side this year, "this isn't the time or place to do this" ... and so we are done with bcsupermoto. You need to ask yourselfs a very simple question in order to perhaps FIX a very serious PROBLEM "your" club has with lack of riders: Why are we loosing ALL of our truly passionate members??? Until that gets figured out, please remove my name from the list of present members at large on your website, thank you.

Oh Mike, it wasnt an attack on you. I just thnk we need to start working together instead of all the fighting. We have a good club, it needs some work I'll give you that. I love this sport and the thing I love most about it is that it is local. You have the ability to travel all over for races, most of us don't. You consistanly reffer to us as lower beings in this racing world...so be it...we arent pros we do it for fun. My point is that we could have a much more succesful turnout uf we start to mix clubs and support each other. As for everything everyone has done to help this club get stared...I wouldn't disagree...but a lot has been done to keep it going as well....for many years by several different people. I want to see it grow, not just keep going and we can't do that if people can't start working together. If you have an issue about something that happens at the track...by all means get it dealt with before you leave, it is the perfect place...but it has to be done respectfully. This goes for everyone, leaving the track with a bad taste in your mouth is not something that will help this club grow. You are one of the old school crew, you and Dylan should be there...same goes for all the other orignals...maybe if there was a little guidance/support in the right direction instead of negative feedback the club wouldnt have to rely on getting so much new blood each year. If you choose to move on thats your porogative and I wish you all the luck in the world at each race you end up at. I will keep on helping here at home so that these guys have something fun to do.
Also...you have think, if you want to have a Pro series, in 5 or 10 years where are you going to get new blood? From small local clubs. It would be nice to think that one day we can have our own main event right here where we started.
Thank You for coming down to visit and ride with us....You are welcome here anytime ! I have got a couple calls in on those tires we were talking about.....so hopefully I will have an intelligent answer within a day or two....Keep up the spirit, everyone you met down here really appreciates what you are doing..... so chin up...this next year will be a blast...I will be talking with others here in the next week or so to try to get the ball moving faster.... Thank You for what you do ! I'll see you at the F440, hopefully I have a herd of enthusiastic riders with me.....coffee will be on !

Brian I want to offer you guys a huge congratulations for the event you held on the 23rd.
I understand you had 174 riders turn out to make some laps around PGP on their own bikes and also on bikes supplied by you and your buddies down there. Outstanding!

F'in Eh ! This coming season is gonna kick ass for both sides of the border ....The economy will pick up and so will we....

Ah I still like to read the SM pages...some fire and some good comments...sounds like a good turn out, by far my favourite track I have ever ridden simply because of its size...even though I only got to ride it a few times...have fun next year...I purchased a Ducati 848 track bike and will solely be doing track days, no racing....if I get some time I will try and come out and support your cause...keep up the good work.
