Why don't they have racing this weekend? Just so there not competing with Havelock? Or is there something at the track as well?

Just Havelock... Any racer is going to chose to run over listening to a bunch of washed up singers.

as far as I know that is the reason...do they really think Havlock will keep that many fans from comming?  I HIGHLY dout it....I for the most part agree with what KD does..but these off-weekends for random fairs and crap...is stupid..expessly conserding how many rainouts they have had

It's time to add dates....I don't think any fan/driver would disagree.

Season is way to short for this to contiune happning.

Its going to be hard to move up in the points with only 5 dates left. I feel like I've done nothing for the past 3 weeks and that is frustrating.... I'm all for added date, but they don't have time at the end of the year. We are running into late September. time after that is invitations.

So please, forget about the stupid hillbilly fairs next year and lets race!!!

Here's what I suggest they do.


Run this Friday.... Run 1 Wendsay....Run during the NCATS...like how Barrie does..make a day out of it even if they just run Features for the home divisions.

because the way it's going....I dout they will even get 5 more nights in....more like 3...

Apparantly the Havelock Jamboree does affect attendance. Mark Rinaldi mentioned it on the Brighton board.

I'm sure it does somewhat....but with all these rainouts there losing more money.

say Havlock they lose 10% of there normal attendence and that much money.

but with all these rainouts there losing 100% of there attendence and money....and then you have Havelock off and you lose all that again....you change it and race, you might lose your 10% but it's better then losing 100% twice.


speaking of tonight....it's getting real sunny around the Pickering area..and looking at the radar the rain is breaking up....think they might have droped the ball tonight.

This is starting to get pathetic. There is a chance of rain so we call the race. I live 10 minutes south of the track and it hasn't rained here for quit a while. The Weather Network says it is sunny with clouds in Peterborough right now ( 2:30 ish ) and there is only a 10% chance of rain in the evening and overnight. This is two times they've done this this season. I know the early rainout a few weeks back it was raining in Peterborough at 7pm so quit a few of you said they made the right call. They didn't, it never rained at the track. Some of our crew didn't know it was called and went. They went to the casino for a few hours instead and they said it didn't rain a bit. I know the weather has really been awful this year, but cancelling this early is brutal. Racers are racers, rain or shine. I don't know many that don't go because there is a chance of rain. The pits had quit a few cars at CCS for the first Kawartha/CCS late model race and it rained like hell almost all day. The race did eventually get rained out but we were willing to take the chance on racing. That's 7 hours of driving for nothing. Oh well, we wanted to race. The forecast last weekend for the ACT race at CCS wasn't the greatest either but they raced. Since the July ACT race I think Kawartha has only raced once, and I was working. I haven't been to the track in over a month and to be honest, I haven't really missed it. It may be age, it may be because it ticks me off that the races are rained out so early. If I had a car or were a sponsor I would be pretty upset with the Kawartha management. Back when I raced at Peterborough in the early 90's they would never have called the races this early. How and why has it become common practice to rain these things out so early? It makes no sense. If you are worried about attendance, take the odd lump Skip, you can't have good crowds every night. By cancelling in this fashion you are ticking off the racers and the diehard fans that are eager to get on with the show.

A BIG THUMBS DOWN TO KAWARTHA ???

Lots of guys are driving long distances to get there. So when you have teams loading up to go at 11, you are forced to make the call then. And the way it was looking at 11...

PERFECT time to reschdule for FRIDAY!!!!!

Seem we got cheated out of our 50 lapper. No mention of reschduleing that. Next Aug 22th schedule is up and of course its the damn legends in there. Wish they would cut those stupid go-carts and give their regualar classes the longer races promised for tonight. Wow I hate those stupid cars and how they always get in the way.

Kids, they are toy go-carts with a stupid plastic body on them. Take em to the amusement park with the kids where they belong. Want to race, build (yes yourself) a real car, and fabricate a few things youself instead of buying a go cart in a box...

That feels better...
