Racewars X Track Rental - Yes or No?

Putting it lightly, its been quite the year. As I'm sure many of you have heard, Atco may being going the way of Etown at some point but details are limited as to when/if this will happen.

The purpose of this thread is to understand from the racer group if you'd like me to organize a track rental this year. If there is still enough interest from the core group of folks who race, then I can work to get that done but here are my initial comments/concerns.

- We go for Atco with the risk that the season is cut short and we don't get the rental off.

- We look to try another track (Island, Cecil). I have not looked into the rental details for those two tracks so I do not know exactly what to expect.

I'm confident I could cobble together enough racers to make a rental happen outside of the BOA group but the effort was always to get our core group together. I do not have interest in setting up a rental if 90% of the racers are people I do not know.

Thoughts, opinions, etc.?

Depending on when it may be, and how my schedule is, I could go.

I would do either Island or Atco, but I think Cecil is too far for me to street-drive the car to, race, and drive it home on the same day.

So, my vote is yes to the idea, and depending on when it is, maybe to participating.

I'd go for the Lulz not to actually race

If Matt doesn't go, I'll take his car myself

A farewell to Atco might be nice.

Brian- Thanks for continually doing this! Had a blast last year as always. Would be in for this at Atco or Island. I'm 20 minutes from Island so I'm partial to that!

Thanks for the responses. So far I see 2 solid "Yes" answers for racers and general interest to attend an event. I'd need to see a lot more racers to get this going so hopefully others will chime in.

I bet he will be happy to hear his BIL and sister got him a V drag pack too as an early Xmas present! He is a lucky guy.
