I was really looking forward to Gatorback. I'm concerned about the spectating at WW, but glad they are getting the opportunity to hold a big event like this.

Re-read, the promoters, Luongo and crew. I realize DC is falling on the sword for YS but lets face it, every year there are multiple venue changes or TBD's on their schedule. Cmon man.

Also I don't want to hear a bunch of noise about whether this is a proper track for the GP's or not. They already race at some really less than traditional venues.

I know YS ain't paying the bill grin If the promoter says they can run the USGP at Gatorback and everything checks out okay, then a couple of months later the promoter has a disagreement with the track owners, I don't really see what you can do. You just have to move it as close as possible and get on with it.

If that gets f'd up and the rumor doesn't come true about Red Bud I will completely lose interest in that race. I'm close as it is.

Wait, you think YS isnt floating the money for this race for their series? No way DC is paying the for all of it so Luongo can come in and put his name on it. He is merely the minority partner in this thing. Gatorback probably wanted more money, YS balked, DC said since you guys never change venues in a season there is this cool track called WW that could work. Now we argue about it on vital for the next week. tongue

I wonder why Florida Tracks and Trail isn't in the running for every Pro race. Man they spent $millions building that place.

Also is that the height of hurricane season?

I don't know, that's not how GP's usually work, but since it's the USGP and Luongo is Keen to have a race there, maybe he is. I guess we'll find out more in the coming weeks. It's not that I don't agree with you about GP's changing venues, I have criticised them in the past for that exact thing, I just wasn't sure what the deal was in this case

Mannn... if this is really gonna happen, it'll be a helluva time. Gatorback woulda been sweet, wont say I'm not a lil bummed... but we both know WW is a darn good venue. All these flat track franky's will see. Good move DC, very good move

Junior spent millions building WW. It is hurricane season, but that's the least of my concerns.

It sure seems like this would come up in the discussions about the event way before now.

"So Mr unlimited sports person, do you have a lease that runs through the date of this event?"

Something else to think about. Perhaps Unlimited sports figured out that a US MXGP is a losing proposition for a track promotor and used the opportunity of negotiating a new lease to get out of it. Their cash cow is mini o's, so you can bet they will negotiate seriously and come to an agreement with the land owners before then.

You guys have two pages of momentum here, but you should peek here to get the back story.

You just answered your own question;

'Everyone jumps everything'

Jump filled flat tracks are dull as shit. Maybe not much for amateurs, but for seasoned professionals... where's the challenge?

Millville it ain't.
