    joec brace yourself

    So.... At a roadracing party last night and lots of talk about vintage at summit in June.

    I've not raced a wera event since the classes were combined or whatever. And I know pretty much all of the people who were chatting about this have not either.

    So... Can someone chime in on how the gp and vintage (ie v1 etc) are running? I looked through the rule book and can't find info on how the grids are now set. I thought everything was deleted up to 500gp for sportsman weekends, or something like that..I can't figure out what or why "heritage" is some class. But lots of talk and interest. I should be there as well likely with my bike to vrra p1 spec. (So v1 with mikunis) Im actually looking forward to it. An hour away. I miss summit.

    I hear “I miss summit” from quite a few vintage racers.......... I understand being WERA loyal, but it’s not like we haven’t been vintage racing there since 2015. Hell, cb350s and rd350s are legal in a couple non-vintage classes with the other org also, and I’ve looked at fast cb/rd guys times in the past, and I know they won’t be totally embarrassed out there in the amateur classes or even back of the pack expert.With an average of 4 rounds a year for 4 years, that’s 16 races minimum if you only race one class at summit, that lots of guys have missed out.........especially the local guys:Poke::D

    Take a look at any of the Sportsman event schedules, especially like Pitt Race last year for an idea of how the classes are run. If you look at the rulebook you'll see some classes are listed as VMD only - which means just that, they only run at VMD.

    they killed off the 1 "vintage" class for 2020. and the other 3 "classic" classes are hardly classic. and if you believe what you read on FB im responsible. 3 years on trying to get people to show and i get thrown under the bus.

    WERA back at The Summit is a GREAT thing. I personally can't wait. I will be there for sure and so will quite a few others that I know of.

    Thank You and You are welcome. Greg Reisinger (#996) is the current owner so you may have already seen it at the GNF this year. It was there.

    Take Care, I'm gone for the night.
