cool cool....

I will be very curious to see how the race pans out this time around seeing that it's not being put on by District clubs. I would say that ordinary riders have a much lower chance of being able to race this time because of this.

Any idea as to when they plan on making any kind of announcements about it? I would also like to put a deposit down on a rental before they start getting expensive but that would be foolish if Im not going to get the chance to race....

last time the rental we got was perfect! It came complete with a golf cart.

Perhaps some Hilltopper who knows could chime in but, the Hilltoppers (as a District club) were not the ones who put the race on. However, that doesn't mean that they didn't do all of the physical work!

I would think that the average rider should be more likely to get in this next time around with classes down into Novice. Remember that last time you were SUPPOSED to have been an EXPERT.

Still being told the main power that is, is buried in another project. Don't expect anything soon.

The word is that the rentals prices will remain as off-season rates and not be raised just for this one weekend. There is limited space and getting in early is smart.

Yeah, Cuzzin Vinnie was out after the first race, I don't know about if The Big 6 was involved for this next round or not.

I got a phone call last night saying that the race most likely will not happen after all. Looks like island politics and bureaucracy are killing it. "Permits" needed are being delayed and people are dragging their feet. The deposit on my house rental is being returned. Oh well, looks like we got our one and only chance. Too bad it was a lot of fun.

I think that's why everyone scrambled to race it last year.

Bummer - I was really looking forward to participating this year. Hopefully, it will work out again at some point in the future...

that sucks. I started racing GP's this year in an effort to try and get better at the whole MX thing.

I definitely in the back of my mind knew that taking advantage of participating in the 2010 race was probably going to be the only chance for me to compete out there.

The pic of me with the casino in the background made it all worth it....
