Well, where do I start?
Let me begin by extending a genuine thank you to the gentleman who brought GLORCS to life many years ago, and gave us ALL something to look forward to every summer. Without you guys, and all your hard work, the series never would have made it to where it is today. I want to thank you for granting me the opportunity to carry on what you worked so hard to establish. On behalf of myself, and everyone else who's participated in GLORCS over the years, I want to say thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
As many of you now know, I'm taking over the operations of the GLORCS series. You may ask yourself why I would do that, so I want to explain. Like many of you, I'm just a guy who's passionate about 1/8 off-road racing, and I want to make sure that we ALL have races to attend, and varying series to compete in. Iíve picked up a very tired bird with a broken wing, and intend to mend it, so it can fly high once again!
I intend to make changes to GLORCS, and those changes will be positive. I won't sit here and tell you that everyone is going to be happy, but I will sit here and tell you that most will be. How do I know this? By assuring each and every one of you, that the goings-on, procedures and policies of the series will be more candid, and will be modeled after the racers wants and needs.
When racers are happy, attendance goes up. When attendance goes up, the races are more attractive, and the tracks are happy and make more money. Everyone wins! This is not my opinion. Itís a fact! A series run by racers, for the racers. Nothing less. Itís my goal to get registrations up to 100+ per race, like they have been in the past, and I see no reason why we canít cooperatively make that happen.
Although there will be structure and policies in place, the foundation of the series' future success relies heavily on YOUR INPUT. Continued efforts will be made to ensure that tracks are happy, racers are happy, and conflicts with other series are kept to a minimum or eliminated completely.
Good friend and fellow racer, Jordan Krupp, suggested that I host an open meeting to discuss the series, and bring forth peopleís ideas and opinions. I think itís an excellent idea, and Iím going to work on making it happen over the winter months. Just one small example of how a racer can help to make a difference by bringing a good idea to the table. Thanks Jordan!
Count on seeing the 2011 schedule very soon. Iíd like it off my plate, so other things can be worked on. Although not guaranteed, Iím working to bring the series back to 7 races, with the 7th being a final. In doing so, care is going to be taken to respect the other seriesí schedules as well as club racing at participating tracks.
I could ramble on and on, but I guess I will leave it at this for now. If you have any questions, please donít hesitate to post your question(s) here. I will do my best to answer them for you as quickly as I can. Please remember that I am still learning, and am only in the early stages of this transition, with lots of work left to do. Iíve had many people already volunteer their help, and I am very grateful.
I want to thank everyone in advance for your support, and above all else, I want you all to know that this is not my seriesÖIT'S OUR SERIES!!!
