Maybe I'll go back to running the "B" series, maybe I'll go back to running the private series. Maybe I'll just stop trying to better the racing scene in MXS. The majority of people seem to be happy with it the way it is. I'm not, it's a fucking joke the way it is. The only good thing you have going is one series one day a week. And while the racing is better there, they still aren't doing enough to stop the stupidity that takes place out on the track every week.

How's that for a rant?

Please, do a B series, I beg!!! And do it on a European-friendly schedule. Maybe something like 11.30pm-1am CET (5.30pm-7pm ET)

Just take a week off and have a scotch and a cigar(Mountain Dew and a Marlboro?) next monday night with your feet kicked up during the usual race time and you might experience a catharsis. Then, if we're lucky, you'll return all refreshed and ready to ban those types in the future, which is an easy judgement call. Then your authoritaw will be respected since that's obviously the only way. I volunteer to assist you if you think it'll help. You do help the community and deserve help(despite being such a smart-ass).

Back to the original PMS, invite only? I had fun in the "B" series too, even though I was basically a sandbagger because I couldn't make the Thursday night races. I wish I could make more of these races, since I love racing the organized races. They just haven't been working with my schedule lately...

<hijack thread>

Someone needs to twist my arm a little to get me into this iRacing thing. I've been debating it for a while, and if you are gonna do a weekly race I'll be debating it even more. I have never really dabbled with car racing sims though, so I really have no idea what I'm in for.

Fantastic!

I say run it next week but don't race yourself, just keep a close eye on people and be harsh as hell judging things and kick them and ban them from the series on the spot, that'll weed out the douche bags and will leave better racing.

I have to get a new controller though, my throttle keeps sticking (it literally does when I let go of the trigger sometimes).

Oh, and WI up front of the East!!!

If I were going to run a race that I didn't race in it would be the "B" class one. I liked the 250 shootout format because it allowed me to see how I stacked up against the 450 riders on a more even playing field. Plus it would be nice to have a group of 20 skilled riders in the main event if I could just get them to show up. Running that race format without racing myself would be like punishment for me, lol.

The "B" series would be 125's only, but with only 7 rounds left I don't see the point in such a short series. By the time people realized it was taking place it would be over.... At the beginning of the year when we have 78 people show up for rF's A1 I figured there was no way enough riders would show up for a race series with no prizes, no fancy website, and ran by an amateur. There clearly is now, but like I said it's too late to try and get something going. Not that I have enough clout to attract many riders anyways. :(

I love the MXS Supercross series. Just ban the people for a race or two who ram people. And if someone just WFO into the first turn, kick them and do a restart. Simple, then if they return and do it again, ban them for the series.
