    In the past, I believe Vintage did NOT run the weekends of Endurance or National Sprints.
    If this is still the case, am I correct that there will be NO VINTAGE the weekend of 6/14-16 @ PIRC (full Course), Wampum, PA-N,N2?
    If there IS VINTAGE, will vintage run both Sat and Sun?

    I have created a combined schedule of AHRMA and WERA races on my blog: https://vintageracer.wordpress.com/race-schedule/

    If you find anything that may have changed, I did write it shortly after both were posted.

    Make notes and I'll make corrections.

    Vintage is run on every Sportsman weekend/day so at PIRC there will be Vintage racing on Sunday (Friday N2 Track day, Saturday Endurance races, Sunday sprint racing).

    Oh yeah, I was trying to get some input on that and totally forgot to put in on the final version - I'll have to find my notes and get it fixed when I'm back in the office.

    any intention for 2020 NJMP, will the track rent decently to non-rider's clubers, like WERA?

    Way too expensive if we can't partner up with N2 and even then we lost money both times we did it. Which means it is the bosses call and I stay out of it :D

    I'm very interested to see if VIR and Summit will be on for 2020. Less Tally in the SE would be great also.

    Any chance of NCM in 2020? Guessing no radical changes that make it safe for racing yet?

    Less Talladega? It's only 3 of them. Working on VIR and Summit.

    NCM is unlikely but still trying to find a chance to get up there and check it out. Maybe next month but probably not unless things slow down a lot.

    While I'm thankful Wera finally showed up at NJMP in 2017. That date was just wrong timing for entries with CCS having their biggest Memorial Day Weekend event at Summit. However it was a great time as we got to see the Blue Angels and race endurance.

    In 2018 it was October and nobody trusted the weather then. (N2 still has that date in 2019 btw)

    I get NJMP plays games with the motorcycle clubs and racers. We can see it with our eyes closed. And that is a shame as it only hurts the sport.

    Only 3? It's 1/3 of the schedule and eats tires. I spend less at Rd Atl/Barber and race more because that tire money goes toward race fees. I say nix a Tally round and add a Rd Atl round with endurance the same weekend. We need more endurance rounds!! Combine it with one of the N2 trackday dates.

    Do you have any idea how much more money it is to rent road Atlanta vs tally?
    Not to mention how busy road Atlanta is, they don't have very many free weekends..

    We’ll be there the 19-20th...

    Yes I do, about $16k/day. Which is why its important you show up and pay to race. Yes, there arent a lot of dates which is why I said combine it with a date N2 already has secured like every other endurance round. Now you have endurance race fees and trackday riders and a SE round all in the same weekend to help cover the cost. Oh and we can buy more races because we're using less tires. Name one rider who would rather race at Tally vs Rd Atl? On op of that we get to show N2 trackday riders what racing is like and maybe convert them. Its really a perfect plan that Mongo will now easily destroy lol

    I am sorry but we spend something like 4 or 5 times to rent those compared to Talladega.

    More endurance sounds great, if you can find us a sponsor for lets say 10k a round I'll as as many as they like. 15k for Road Atlanta and Barber though.

    I'm truly lost on the tire thing, how can you be going through more than a set a day at any of those tracks?
  19. Mongo

    Mongo Administrator

    That's track rental, add in insurance and staffing and both are closer to 25k a day.

    N2 is in business to run trackdays, they can't/won't give up any date we want just to be nice. BTW - Endurance fees do not cover an Endurance day. If they did we never would have shut down the series. Trackday riders for the most part also don't want to be converted to racing.

    I do appreciate the input but we really have been doing this a while and have tried all of those things...

    Sorry, the $16k/day figure was given to me by the boss herself, so just relaying what I was told.
