Will there be a spreading of this new class to the Portland community outside this message board? I think (but could be completely off base) that there are people that might be willing to give racing a try if they knew there was a stock class... for a couple reasons, $$$$$ and feeling like they could never make a bike that would be competitive with a few gearheads we know.
It's true! We need to get the word out as much as possible. I wanna see more bodies out there in a big way. This is the link to the OSB page that has the local class listings as well as price breakdowns for the weekends:
Remember that we are not restricted to running in the scooter/moped classes. We also ran in a few of the mini classes last year and it was an all out blast. Those guys were happy to have us and I feel like it really helped me as far as my riding ability. So keep in mind that while OSB has made specific classes for us, we are not necessarily restricted to them... ;D ;D ;D
IMHO, a semi-professional announcement needs to written up and sent out on the PDX scooter mailing list, Lucky Bastards mailing list, facebook groups, ect ect ect.... I think there are a few more people that would be interested if they knew that they dont need a stoooopid fast bike to compete and have fun.
I think you fine folks that are setting this up have done a great job with schedule, and classes and that word needs to spread like swine fever.

As it stands right now, I believe PSRA are still awaiting some last rounds of approval from the Seattle track for their proposed dates. We should have those after the coming weekend. - At which point, the cup series dates will be chosen and piggyback onto the local dates in each city (I think) so that we have a three city challenge where - should you chooses to - you will get to race on 4 or 5 different tracks against lots of different people in one season. ;D Or you can just race locally all summer. Or maybe do a couple away dates - the choice is yours. But - yes, once we have all of that info together in one package of race-happy joy-fun for the NW, I do foresee mass propagandization any way we can get it. ;D ;D

Hey kids. Just got news from PARC that they double booked our July date. As it stands right now, July is up in the air for a track date. MAC is host to the county fair that week, so they're out as well. I will post more when I found out if we can book another date/track.

Obviously this is a dynamic situation, but if everything falls to shite, we could always take our kooky brand of hijinks to the road at the Polini Cup racing in Atwater. Kind of like a crossover Grey's Anatomy/Private Practice episode.
