We can only hope! The car is impressive! It turns really well with more weight at the front wheels. It will continue to do well as I believe it has more traction then the rear engine IFS cars. Watching them in the tight loose stuff really showed how well it did when it was able to rocket out of the corners.Hopefully tv will detail the timeline of the car being finished tested and doing nothing but winning. Impressive.
Two months ago: LH.... "I'll still run the SA at KOH"I also think it should climb better. Can't wait to see how Loren does in the rocks.
I'm guessing that it's not about those of us that follow the sport, but about the ones that have never heard the words "King of the Hammers"Someone that is interested in and follows the sport knows what the outcome of the race is but has to wait months to watch it? :homer:
Right, so it's more for the sponsors... Getting the exposure, on TV, at a later date.I'm guessing that it's not about those of us that follow the sport, but about the ones that have never heard the words "King of the Hammers"
I was very bummed to not have coverage of Glen Helen. I also feel very lucky that I was able to be at Stampede.
Like some other venues, Glen Helen has a TON of racing there throuout the year. There's a big race like every weekend. Big to someone, not compared to the big motorcross race or LOORS. If Ultra 4 dumped $10k into advertising they'd get like $2k-3k in return. Or less.With where Glen Helen is. I thought there should've been a hell of a lot more spectators there. Socal is the offroad mecca. It's a great place to watch a race with a ton of action at all places on the track. I'd bet 90% of the people there were either drivers, pit crew or friends and family. There was little info on the event and I didn't hear or see any advertising and I live 45mins from the track. I understand it all cost money. I hope the TV deal is what puts it on the map and gets people out to spend some money.
Also the one food vender I saw was packed up and leaving half way through the main race. I did like the camping and pit situation much better this year.
All in all a great event and the racing was sweet.
