Darrin and Mike why don't you look at busting up the clone class to two races and put them apart and maybe some of the med racers would add some weight and run heavy.


I think if we saw 15+ clones every week we would consider splitting them up.

I know that is something I would like to see happen (splitting up the classes) for more seat time

I sure do not agree with spliting the clones up into different segments , I thought the main purpose of clone racing was to have a full field that everyone would have somebody to race with ? I think the track will safely hold at least 30 karts in a race and untill that time I see no advantage to splitting classes.

again this is just my opinion

My thoughts exactly.

If club will shut down national classes, it will close the door for new kids to grow above local racing level. And for what? For bunch of adults to have fun racing in big classes?
Barnesville track is ideal for clone, but it is the only track in GA...


Barnesville is a track that will teach you how to race anywhere. If you learn how to pass and go fast here when you get to the high speed non technical tracks that everybody is in love with now you will be even faster.
John likes the clone for the shear numbers and there are alot of people like that. I like the faster stuff, even if there are less people. The yamaha for the money is still the way to go. Open tires, clutch and carb you can tune. I might end back up on one yet. Would hate to see the club do away with options to race just because at this time the clone is the big ticket. Tag/yamaha might not have the numbers but it should still be offered. With the way the prices on the rotax and tag are right now and the economy for a 2-stroke racer the yamaha is looking mighty sweet. two full set ups for the price of one tag or rotax. Plus they give more of a kick when you drive. stock yamaha 695.00.

Just me thinking out loud.
Very Happy
Allen

Allen, that is part of the reason I like Clone, but at my age, I do not want to beat myself up on a Tag and Rotax on a small track like Barnesville. If we had a big track, I would consider the faster class.

I too would love to see Yamaha come back, great class. I would still prefer HPV. Very good speed, very low maintenance.

Please do NOT split up the clones until it grows to the point where safety becomes the primary concern. We race all around the SE and from my observations, the clone class at B'Ville hosts the biggest fields of any sprint class from North FL to AL - and thats a pretty cool distinction IMO. When the clone class grows to where it needs to be split, maybe "expert" and "novice" class might something to consider instead of light and heavy.

As a side note...I liked the frequent announcements of keeping tabs on what class was up next. Made it easer to judge how much time you had left to work on your stuff between sessions. Good times yesterday. Thanks. SF

"Connor would be learning much more by racing in Clone Jr1 or Yamaha Jr, just because there are more kids running there."

darrin, i couldn't disagree any more. if you want connor running nationally, running clone at home isn't the way to improve. if you want him to improve, put him in a mini running with angus and michael. it doesn't take a huge field, just other fast local kids pushing each other. we sure are happy we get to run with michael at home, and even as it's just the 2 of them, they push each other and improve. if michael would have spent last year in a clone, he probably would have been at the back at FWT instead of top ten!

Wow, This race will be Sick. Lets just make sure we respect each other this weekend. This is new for most everyone. If it goes off well, I am sure the Board will do it more, but if over drive and take each other out, no one will be happy.

I know I am looking forward to racing on Saturday.!!


Is this for Kershaw/Camden SC??? c
