    Is it the car/track combo's, event structure, start time that's keeping people from signing up?
     
  4. Hi Dennis. Honestly, the tracks chosen the past two weeks have very little appeal to me, this one included. It has four chicanes too many for my tastes. However, I have no room to complain since I did not PM you my track choices as requested a few weeks back and as a result, have been silent hoping for future races to be held on tracks I find more appealing. I can't speak for anyone else, but that is my honest feedback and I hope you find it useful. I'm curious as to the reasons others have for not attending. If track selection is the issue, perhaps have some sort of public poll to see what people favor?

    That being said, sign me up for this. Perhaps racing with others on this track will warm me up to it as you did to Goiania a few weeks back.

    The event ran well and right on time. For one complete race Steve and I battled it out, learning the ways of the SCE Mini and the tricks this version of the track offer.

    It would have been nice to have a little freight train rolling around instead of just the two of us.

  6. I'm not sure if battling it out is the right term...more like me spinning a bunch, you waiting for me to catch up, then more spinning. The last few laps were fun with some minor mistakes that cascaded into massive ones as we leap-frogged each other. These cars are more of a handful than I thought going in. Unfortunately, it probably would have been a rather dull race with more people on the grid since these cars are very hard to cleanly pass in and the track doesn't lend itself to many passing opportunities.

    For a car I have little desire to drive since it's wrong wheel drive and pathetically slow, and a track with four too many chicanes, that was a lot of fun. Thanks Dennis!
