Yeah I don't know too much about quads. Okay 1 big quad class and sportsman quad. Bingo!
I know bikes have age groups, I like that so I kept it. He he he!
I did some crazy stuff like totally eliminate Baja bugs open and 5/16 and class 12. All 3 of those are epic classes but holy cow I think there's just way too many classes.
Heck I'm a whack job but racing in TT with 35 other trucks is very tough. I like that. Racing in a class of 5 or 6 is still tough but holy cow I can't even tell you how hard we worked just to get 14th and 17th at the 500 in TT. I think everyone should have the chance to experience that kind of competion.
Can I ask why we aren't combining TT and CL1?
Don't say it's because they're already both popular and highly competitive. Didn't Pistol rip his truck body off and run as a CL at LDC or something???
HOW ABOUT...Unlimited budget open class (TT & CL1's that have a build price of $XXX,XXX and higher) and limited budget open class?? (TT's and CL1s that fall short of that made up, non-exhisting number that I made up and didn't even type out above??)
At the 500 Class 1 had 19 entries. That seems like enough entries to carry a class on it's own. You can tear the body off a TT and run class 1 or you could bolt a body on a class 1 and run TT but for the most part buggies and TT's take a very different approach to covering ground in the desert.
This is gonna tick off a bunch of peeps but we really don't need 7 different classes running some form of a 40 year old vw engine do we?
1/2 1600 and class 11 ought to be able to cover it.
Bottom line is promoters make money from entries. You wanna race and pay money to do so, then there will be a class for you. It's a lot like Bonneville, well it ain't that bad but very similar.
PS. My favorite race class is 5 open. Man those cars are cool!
I think we could get it down to 5 classes, and have better payouts and more fun for everyone.
TT (unlimited, including tire size, fuel induction, turbine engine, whatever you want, class 1 cars race here too).
Mod/Spec (6, 8, 7 open, super 8)
Buggy (10/12/1600/4/5 unlimited) basically Buggies all run together
Production - stock full, stock mini, 7S, 1450, 5-1600, anything with a Stock body
Sportsman - 9, 11, utv make the tough guys earn it!
Turbo, supercharger, diesel, electric, turbines, etc. should be allowed in any pro class.
While I am not as concerned on the number of classes, What I would give to have them all numbered the same and called the same in each and every series and all have the same rules among them...
