    If I remember, but you can correct me, WMRC practice is $100, WCS is $175?

    As for losing money, I know, but in the big scheme of things, having the club lose money for one day over racers getting put in the hospital seems quite trivial, wouldn't you agree?

    I don't know about you Simon, but track time is track time, I don't care who's name is on top of the waiver I sign. I ride 90-95% on a practice day or a track day, it's all the same. Either the event is scored or it's not. Other than a different ambulance company and different corner workers (I admit that our corner workers are usually more experienced) I don't see much of a difference.

    If any of our experienced corner workers or race officials offered their services, I'm sure the WCSS guys and gals would love to have the extra help.

    Simon with things the way they are financially for everything I wouldn't rely on last years costs when comparing WCSS to WMRC for track time.
    I have heard that both the club and WCSS had difficulty paying the bills last year and with double header weekends if it rains and racers decide not to show then prices may change.

    We shouldn't confuse the thread with facts, it just takes away from the drama. :)

    Simon, are you planning on riding more dangerously than usual and putting yourself or someone else in the hospital?
    I don't recall any incident where a racer has been hospitalized at any of our track days due to any of our procedures. Our crew is comprised of many of the same people as on racedays and they are all paid, so we get the same people for just about everyone one of our days and we are not just grabbing willing volunteers with no experience. We strive to maintain the same level of safety as the WMRC has for so many years. Please elaborate on your statement.

    While I may get less track time at a WCSS event than a WMRC practice (although this is debatable) the trade off of getting non-racers and non-WMRC members to try our track on the weekend rather than a weekday and possibly be able to put some of the stereotypes about the track to rest is a welcome trade-off.

    I see having WCSS doing a trackday on the weekend a way to help grow the club, this is something we all benefit from.

    What the fuck are you talking about? Dean and others know exactly what I mean, if we had no options for practice on Sat then Sunday would be a zoo of cold brains and fast bikes. As for me riding dangerously, care to elaborate on that? That's a mighty bold statement coming from you.

    As for cost, money is money, if Sat costs more to practice then more racers stay away, simple. I guarantee people are going to be hard for money with the season so condensed but if I am wrong then I am wrong, and if you have a wicked turn out with lots of racers then that's awesome, and good luck with everyone this year, :cool:

    Hey Simon calm down.
    My question about the schedule was simply "Will the first race date be a practice day?".
    At that time the WCSS didn't have their dates posted so I wanted to know if there would be a day for everyone to get up to speed, "Cold brains and fast bikes" as you put it. "Hot heads and cold tires" works too.
    Now that WCSS has their dates and May 5th will be a WCSS day with May 6th the first WMRC day I have no problem with using the WCSS day as a practice day and getting into the season for real on May 6th.
    If I had waited until WCSS posted their dates then I wouldn't have needed to ask the question.
    Sorry to hear that you won't be out this year, you seem to have lots of passion about the sport.

    Sorry Simon, when you said that people would end up in the hospital I thought you were referring to the fact that the day was being run by WCSS. Hence the question as to how that would happen and if you knew something about the day that I didn't. My bad.
    Yes, I agree that it would be a crashfest on Sunday if there was no practice, fortunately there is though.
    PS. in 25 years of racing I have yet to make anyone else crash but myself. Kind of disappointing really. :)
