Lets just say I'm not exactly happy about CCS at RA right now (as are MANY other racers).
First thing (not CCS caused), my bike tipped over in the trailer on the way up. Just scratches.
2nd, Paper I got said reg would open at 3 or 4 pm thursday. Didnt open until 6.
Now for the races.
Friday. Basically everythign was decent. Got 24th in GTU. Not too thrilled about the 88 bike field. Team challenge didnt start until 4:30ish (scheduled for 3pm). No idea why. They actually had to cut it short to meet the 6pm cerfew.
Sat. Another day going well UNTIL the riders meeting. All day friday and all practices we exited at turn 5. Then some brain child decides EVERYONE has to take a FULL cool down lap and come in on the pit lane to get off the track. Nice WASTE of 3-7min PER RACE. Found out it was to "prevent" cheaters in supersport races. WHY not have a guy down at turn 5 doing tech there for the ss races? Our scheduled 5 lap races turned into 4 laps. Race 12 and 13 had to be run sunday. Finished 33rd in mwss. Only people that lapped me were AMA guys.
Sunday. Where do we begin? Rained at night. Heavgy FOG until 10am. We reverted BACK to exiting at 5. When we finally could start, our races got cut to 3, yes THREE laps for CCS races while Fusa stayed at 10. Then they cut them to 7 before they started. After 2 Fusa races, then they went to 5 laps. Well we now have to make races up AT BLACKHAWK May 8. Races 13-17 will be run then. Got 6th in CCS Thunderbike. Dropped sundays hwss race and switched to thunderbike because one of the AMA guys was being a total ass on the track to am's.
As for CCS, they really need to get people in charge that have a clue. So now we are going to get fucked over at BHF with shortened races to fit the RA races in. Weather problems like the fog sunday I understand, but not teh BS we did saturday. 12 races doing full cool down laps took anywheres from 36 to 54 minutes that could had been used to run 12 and 13 on saturday. No wonder teh grids are shrinking. People are getting fed up with them. Read the CCS messageboard and see how many problems are really there. www.racemotorcycles.com
If there was another org that used the same tracks, most if not ALL would jump ship on CCS and head to the other one.
