Just wondering(again):  Why do we not have more races in Texas?

 

For the upcoming Willow Springs race, there are currently only 10 entries.

For the Thunderhill race, only 4 entries.

Yet we routinely sell-out the races we have in Texas.

And with there being multiple tracks (Eagles Canyon, MSRH, H2R),

and race weather all year round,

why are we not having more races in Texas?

@Rick.Cook23@yahoo.com are you looking for more opportunities for me to beat you?  🙂

And for the record, COTA is not on the plan. 

 

That's good.  COTA is just too expensive to rent and turnouts have always seemed limited for reasons.  Not good for sustainability, and I don't think it accurately represents the demand to race at this level in Texas.  WRL has gone to the moon, Lemons is Lemons, AER isn't around (yet?), and LDRL isn't around (yet?).  Come and take it CC.

 

I'd be thrilled if MSRH and ECR made it on the calendar, it's been too long.

Fun track, it’ll keep you busy, would love to go back there and win again.

 

I don't think your team would be competitive anymore there.

When I was on the Board we were looking at bringing back COTA and Indy once every three years.  It costs a small fortune to rent those tracks and we need sellouts to make it a net zero proposition.  Having fewer races would likely increase attendance when we do go back.

Nice try, what layout? They only had one course available when they rented to Champ Car for their first Sanctioned race.

The outer big track looks Sharky to me Bill...... long straights and sweeping turns..not so zoom zoomie.
