yeah and you would have more kids making super power bikes in thier garages only to go out and kill themselves on the way to McDonalds. Maybe the lack of publicity is a good thing lol :laughinglove it or hate it ,if bikes had the corperate sponsorship that nascar has youd be all over it ,and people could actually get paid real money to race and stands would be packed like overseas.
uhhh no.love it or hate it ,if bikes had the corperate sponsorship that nascar has youd be all over it ,and people could actually get paid real money to race and stands would be packed like overseas.
Bitch and complain about anything they can. Vancouver, in all it's beauty, is close to the most boring major city I've been to in the world. And I've been to nearly 80 destinations in 12 countries across 5 continents, so for Vancouver to rank that low something is majorly wrong.well then what the hell do people here do?
I do remember... It was such a great place. The state of things back in 1959, when Westwood was built, is much different from how things are now. The frustrating thing is that there is obviously no lack of private money in this province (just look at the high-end real estate market, business developments, etc.), but apparently, no one with all that money wants to build a race track with it. And even if they did, B.C. seems to have more than its share of municipal and government mazes to navigate.Once apon a time there used to be a great facility called Westwood...they used to packem in every race weekend. I think it's more to do with location.
Remember that motorcycle racing already 'died' once in B.C, when Westwood closed after the 1990 season. Through one-off events at Chilliwack and then establishing an adopted new home at Mission, however, it was brought back to life by the dedicated people in the WMRC. If the club could survive for 11 years without a home track, I do believe that it can continue to live until we get a permanent track more suitable for bikes. I only wish I knew how long that was going to take...NASCAR kicks ass.
Motorcycle racing should take a few notes, NASCAR will be around long after motorcycle racing dies here.
Yes, that's the reality of our situation. Sure, it would be great to have a 3.5 mile GP-quality track in B.C., but that's an awfully tall order to fill. Mission may not be our ideal circuit, but as we've said before, it's all we have right now and should make the best of it. We had no track at all during the 1990s, so I'm glad we have one at all right now.With the price of land, plus the price of building materials and labor....
Whos going to race at a track purpose built for $500/day?
People bitch that its too expensive to race at Mission...tell us Ryan what our race fees would be if we were 10 million dollars in debt?
