Some of the top tier teams look down at the limited classes so what's the difference?The thing I always find funny and slightly disrespectful to elite of off-road racing (which shows the minor league mentality) is that when someone crosses over for 1-2 races in a TT they are instantly a "contender". We see it every year and this thread is no exception.
It should be offensive to the top guys to assume someone can walk in from Rally, Dakar, Nascar, Drift, etc.. and battle for a top spot.
Putting an exhibition driver like Ken Block in a TT for the 1000, and I think the Redline truck gets worse in IMO. I get it, it's marketing and if you have the money not the worst idea to get eyeballs on you, but it sets you back a few spots or more.. But then again we've already established social media is more important than results so maybe it's NET win. IDK..
Good point. I like how you worded it better. I remember not too long ago on this forum, someones opinion was invalid because they were only a 1450 team...don't you mean 'teams' in Top tier equipment?, anyone who looks down on lower classes has no class, ESPECIALLY in off road desert racing
Certainly has worked well for flat track TT. Surprised when he Did TT it stayed pretty mellow on coverage of him. Maybe because Desert crowd is used to other racing stars coming in so no big deal to them and the press. I also think cause the desert crowd figured he would ball it up.We're going to get full coverage on our class 10 and make Travis Pastrana the 3rd driver
