For 2008, the GSKA had a total of 862 paid entries, for an average of 53.9 racers per event. This number is up from 2007 (45 avg if I remember), but not up significantly. There were a number of races that were impacted by rain and I am sure the economy didn't help the situation either. There were a number of regulars that missed many races in 2008, due to fuel prices and the general economy. Hopefully with lower fuel prices and if the economy gets better, I think we should see an increase again in 2009. I would like to challenge every club member to find one new racer each for 2009. This includes reaching out to people that have raced with us before and get them to come out again. I would like to see us top 100 racers a couple of times next year, and average over 75. This is a do-able number if everyone helps out.

I will be renting my kart a few times next season to Jeff Walrich, the video guy, and if he likes it he may be in the market for a kart.

Also, I must take some partial credit for steering (pun intended) Sean O'Connell to our club. He has some car racing experience (Formula Ford I think) and he will be racing Rotax Masters.

Thats great on the numbers...

The up and down entries are going to continue due to having a 16 race series... Thats more races than any other series I have ever run or heard of..
