I don't ride IRL, you're correct. I lack the care or the money to do so, and my mom doesn't baby me and pay for everything for me. I pay for my shit myself, with the money I earn from my one 40 hour/week job which is about to turn into two 40 hour/week jobs, so I do absolutely know about coming and being too tired to do anything. BTW, my mom doesn't have a basement, I stay in my own bedroom, and I help pay the bills. You're a fucking idiot acting like you know anything when you've never even talked to me (Thank God for that. Pretty sure my IQ of 6 would drop to -400 if I had to hear your voice)

The year Race Factory ran stuff on Sunday (2014), we had a DRAMATIC fall off from the opening rounds until the end of the series. It was the first time in the Race Factory's history that we weren't still seeing full gates by the end of the series. It was so bad that even Barrington, yes BARRINGTON, was nearly getting top 10s in pro 450 Main Events by the end of the series. In any gaming discipline not associated to racing, weekends are fine because yeah people do tend to have more time on the weekends. But we are a community of racers and riders who like driving several hours to go to our favorite tracks or going to real life pro events in our area to spectate and that only happens on the weekends. In Call of Duty, you don't have the Pro players going to watch professional gun fighting battles on the weekend because there isn't any.
I'm perfectly fine with whatever EMF do because like us at Race Factory, it's their series to run. However, I'm just explaining the difficulties they are most certainly going to have. Doesn't matter what the poll says, weekends were a disaster for Race Factory and there's a reason why we haven't gone anywhere near them in the three years since.
I do remember the large drop off in sign ups and attendance in 2014 (I think I was close to making fast 40 at some of those East rounds and I was REALLY bad then) but I always gave blame more to the tracks and the lack of ams which allowed one lap heroes to make it into the fast 40. I support whatever EMF wants to do because they obviously have it set up in a way that works for them to be able to host it. I feel like too many kids in this community feel that they're entitled to everything they want, and too many of them want to race everything so that if they actually manage to do well, they can say they top 10'd, top 5'd, etc. since they can't in rF. I don't know, I just don't like all the bitching that people are doing over this topic. The EMF crew set it up so that they could host it, not so everyone and their brother could race it
