Thread: Who's racing C super Sport BBE

  1. #41
    I honestly don't think this guy has an understanding of the concept of classes. He keeps saying how SSC "won't be competitive." Obviously it won't be competitive against bikes with endurance tanks and dry breaks and quick change axles. That's why they're in a different class. Guys still grid up motards despite the fact that they'll never catch the top ladies on supersports. You're not necessarily competing against everyone else who's on the track at the same time as you.

You can think what you want, and say what you want. I'll stand by my thought that it is simply geared toward trying to get more people due to the dominance of two teams for years on end now and the perceived thought that no-one else can be competitive therefore grids will decrease, etc etc

    Obviously having more bikes is good, I didn't mean it that way, however, having a class that is by design built to never compete, well now that is STUPID. In a 6-8 hour race, stock tank R6 is going to have what 2-4 more fuel stops? Tires stops will be of same frequency, just much much slower... Still can't touch the bike during fueling so while you're using your VP can to painfully slowly fill your stock tank, just watch the actual endurance prepped bikes put LAPS at a time on your team at each pit stop. Bike for bike on the track the SS 600 versus SB 600 bikes won't have a performance gap to speak of, we've all seen that, but in the pits it will be ridiculous.

    At cresson and Hallet a front/rear change with fuel will cost you 2 laps minumum per attempt.
    Hi "Joseph Schmidt", of your 17-18 posts, all you have managed to say are things that are inflammatory about our racers, our sponsors, and our rules/races. You're not a club member, therefore you have no right to come in here & act like a jerk.
    There is no "Joseph Schmidt" in our member, associate, or corner worker base. You're simply a plant that is here for the sole purpose of stirring up drama. I'm reporting your posts.

    I'm not a plant or anything of the nature, I. Simply a member of the forum expressing my opinion. I never attacked any of you (as you have done me) and have kept quiet since you all decided to come unglued. It's a simple difference of opinion, nothing more or less.

    Dumping on the club we love and the staff we think does a great job is pretty aggressive. You used strong words in your disagreement from the beginning, so it got some folks riled up. It's okay to disagree, but you're right up there with Chris Coffey and Jesse Davis in your delivery. Lol

    Joseph you posted negative comments in a thread started by our Dunlop vendor, you basically called our Race Director and BOD stupid, you accused one of the nicest officials there is of having a "god complex" and in not so many words flipped off anyone who was thinking of running in the new endurance class.

    What you don't know is we love our vendors, officials and racers. They are our friends, family and race support group. While we may at times be slightly dysfunctional we like what we do and how we do it, and perhaps contrary to your belief for fun. Which by the way is not dangerous, having fun is fun. You should try it

    Feel free to express opinions and thoughts but do it respectfully and in the manner in which you would like to be treated.

    Now, who is running in the new endurance class besides Yorke

    We are putting parts back on the bike and moving up to one of the Super bike classes. If 3 or 4 other teams would have shown interest or pledged to be a part of it, we were actually ready to go for that class. Being the only team in a class is no fun, so it is what it is.
