When it is done 1/2 way through the weekend it is normal for 75 out of 150 entries to feel cheated .

#2 .........who ......I ask ........other than the 12 Amain guys in Buggy and Truggy could possibly benefit from running all the buggy mains one after another and then all the truggies . I don't blame the a main guys for not wanting to be up on the stand for an hour straight in the hot sun . However a 150 entry race weekend is for all not just 12 guys. If the is another theory as to how this is good for everyone I would love to hear .Again if that is how the race is going to be run ...fine but say so ahead of time so if people don't like that they have the option not to race and then they can't complain either . I bet the GLORICS reps would love to avoid being asked a 100 questions every 5 minutes too!!!!!!LOL
gotcha - standardized format - either its all buggy then all mt then all truggy, or its all d mains, all c mains, all b mains, all a mains. no flip-flopping procedures between events.
no problemo. I can tell you that these decisions have previously lied in the hands of each indivudal race director. if it becomes evident that popular opinion wants it standardized, one way or the other, then we can discuss it and put it to vote at the meeting.
anyways, i have created a special thread on our board for all these comments where i'm dropping all this information for discussion.
thanks again.

re good points

i have to agree with derek that the glorcs guys have run the series pretty damn good considering the number of racers at each event, the effect the lousy weather has had on the the decisions being made regarding rocket round vs qualifying round format and taking feedback from the racers and applying it to try and make each event run smoothly.

dave also made a good point that there should be some kind of standardized format regarding how the mains are run and in what order. it seems this aspect differs from race to race.

when you are dealing with 100-150 racers average per event you are never going to be able to make everyone happy. just cant be done. all the glorcs guys can do is try and make it more smoothly for the majority of the racers . marshalling will always be a sore spot for some people and when you have the majority of the racers running in more than one class it complicates it even more.

i myself run 2 classes so sometimes it works out to my benefit in that i get a bit of break between my marshalling duties and then sometimes im stuck driving a 30 minute main and then having to marshal a 45 minute main right after like i did at hardcore. but the bottom line is nobody forced me to enter more than one class and i always make sure im out to do my marshalling when required. its not easy to get people to volunteer marshal a 45 minute race if they have already marshalled a 30 minute race in the hot sun plus drove in a 30 minute race .

all in all i think gump and the rest of the glorcs directors have done a fantastic job so far and the amount of work that goes into holding these races is much greater than most people realize. how many of us would want to take on their responsibilities on our own free time without being paid?

we all had a chance to make our voices heard when glorcs provided us with a survey to fill out and if you didnt bother to fill one out then thats your loss.

Lotsa good stuff here !

My feeling is that when a track owner / director submits thier intent to host a GLORCS race - They should ensure that the event will be staged as per GLORCS exceptions.

It is not reasonable to charge premium rates for an event, and provide deficient services.

Bottom line, I think GLORCS is doing an excellent job of conducting themselves through all of the feedback sessions they have encountered this season, and spinning it into a positive for future development.

Personally, I would like to see track owners / race directors rewarded for hosting an event as per the rules - by allowing them to submit an application for the following years GLORCS season. This may seem harsh, but this is the way to ensure compliance.

This is the way it's done in many other facets of event staging / hosting. This promotes a system that facilitates customers (Racers) recieving what they pay for.

SOOOO...What's the excuse this time??Another awsome GLORCS event at GHC and not one American entry(that i know of)
Whats the deal?Do we smell?Or is that you guys don't want anthing to do with GLORCS unless it's on your side of the lake???We support your races by the bus load ,infact I bet that 80% of the entries at FTR were Canadians.I'm sure that it will be the same for the upcoming GLORCS event at Glenwood(BUS LOADS).

So really WHAT'S THE DEAL, are you afraid of getting your a*s*s*e*s wooped again
