Another instance of Monte from STT taking money out of someones pocket but this time it was someones kid
Sportbike Tracktime no longer part of GSB
Well folks, as much as i hate to do this, Monte Putz, owner of STT as well as Mark Sheldon, SE director of Sportbike tracktime, have been permanently banned from GeorgiaSportbike. Anyone posting up anything related to STT's trackdays on this website will also be banned.
Now, with that being said, here is the reason why:
As most of you know, there is no love lost between Monte and myself. Let me say this again, BETWEEN MONTE AND MYSELF. My beef is with Monte and the way he treats other trackday orgs. This has been hashed out here as well as other boards, so i am not going to go into that as that is not what THIS is about. That has always been and always will be between MONTE AND ME.
As some of you know, my oldest son has been corner working for approx. 8 years, doing WERA, m/c trackday events for many organizations including STT, as well as car events. Andy Clark his name. He was also voted Cornerworker of the year a few years ago for his outstanding work. He has always taken his job VERY seriously, mostly because i drove it into his brain when he first started doing it that our lives depended on him doing his job and doing it well.
As of today, Monte called FBF, the cornerworking co. Andy has always worked for, and called Andy out by name and has banned him from working any future STT event. I personally spoke with the owners of FBF last night and was assured that Andy had done nothing wrong and that Monte gave no explanation, and was assured that Andy is still one of their favorite workers. I also emailed Monte, and have gotten no reply back with any type of explanation. Just another prime example of the "business model" Monte Lutz really is. He doesn't have the balls to come to me with any issue he has with me, so he basically takes his hatred of me out on my family, my college bound son that depends on the money he earns working these as well as other events to help him through college..............yea, pretty stand up guy that Monte is, taking money from a college kid. I honestly didn't think my opinion of the man could get much lower, but, it just did.
So, i have no other explanation of WHY Monte chose to hurt my son other than "BECAUSE HE CAN". So, as admin of this site, Monte as well as Mark have been banned from here, BECAUSE I CAN do that. If anyone wishes to discuss STT trackdays, there are many other forums i guess you can go to, but on THIS sight, it aint gonna happen anymore.
Monte, Mark, as well as many of you guys that are "coaches" have been "advertising" STT like crazy the past few months. I haven't said a word, even tho Monte approached me back in Feb. when we brought the site back, and wanted to trade out "track time for advertising rights" on the board. When i told him no, that he could buy banner space just like any of the members here did, the man didn't even have the balls to reply back to me, yet continue to pimp his events here. That comes to a stop, effective immediately. Marc, Derrick, Cliff, any of the rest of you guys, don't make me have to ban you as well. You guys are part of GSB, but as of now, STT is NOT, i'll put this in the same way Monte did when he sent out the email to every one of you "if you want to continue to be a part of GSB, any mention of STT on this site will get you removed from GSB (sound vaguely familiar?).
Again, it sux that it had to come to this, but Monte left me with no option. I'm still completely amazed, even by Monte's standards, that he would stoop so low in a shameless attempt to get back at ME, to basically attack a member of my family, and that's the way i see it.
This is not open for discussion or debate and if anyone wants to start drama on it, you're welcome to the door with the EXIT sign above it. I hate to "pull the admin card", but as Monte so elegantly sent his messege to me, I CAN pull it, and i DID.
