I do understand what frank is saying. And like I said matt does what is best for the racers, he will come up with something.

When hosting any special event, there is not only a social responsibility of the promoter, but the responsibility of mitigating negligence to provide a facitity / venue that is not harmful to ones health - for an event that is open to the public, and payed admission to attend / participate.

I'm sure the promoters will do what is necessary and have the correct mitigation measures in place for this years event to ensure that the air quality is reasonable.

Having two years of experience with this venue is valuable knowledge - and they now are aware what is needed to provide a safe experience for all.

Perhaps it would be usefull to participants to be advised by the promoters regarding what measures will be in place prior to committing to attending, so they can be assured that they will be attending a safe and enjoyable event.

Next time i see mat i will tell him that i am gonna bring my exaust fans.. they used to be 220v i switched them to 110v.. and they move a LOT OF AIR... so they will be available for use at the big race, if the guys in charge see fit.

I never really say anything on a chat site but i read most of the posts on here, some of you guys don't seem to have anything better to do then cry about crap, and it's kinda upseting when i see people cutting up a good thing, this is a hobby, not days of our lives BUT
"People like me will keep the hobby from growing" Grow up. I am the guy always helping the new guys, lending out engines, radio equip, clutch crap and fuel. Some of you guys won't even marshal after you run, let alone help a new guy

Just my .02
Nobody is crying, people are talking and communicating about a problem. There are many people out there who care about their health.

I remember going to a ISMA Super Modified race every year just across the boarder in New York. It was inside a convention center, on the concrete floor. The concrete was treated with coke syrup.

The fumes were so bad. They constantly had the fire department running carbon monoxide detectors at all areas of the building, ready to pull the plug on the event at any minute.

That building has since been turned over to the natives, and they no longer race there, but that is my experience with engines indoors. I always felt kind of sick after that race. I can totally understand people being concerned.

I am sure Matt, Vic and the other promoters will do all that they can to make it an as good as it can be... I am asthmatic and didn't find it to be too bad all things considered. Indoor race + Nitro cars = smoke. It is what it is.

Generally yes smoke rises. Nitro fumes however are actually heavier than air which is why they settle on the track instead of going up into the rafters like typical smoke. I'm pretty sure it's the same principal as carbon monoxide from car exhausts.

And yes, I had a 2 day "Nitro Hangover" from the race last year but you can bet money that I will be there this year again!
