Great time in Ohio moto, two new race tracks in three weeks. Route 62 Labor day weekend and then East fork yesterday. I would say 90% of everyone in the gate for both tracks had been there before for practice. (those are scientific numbers so don't bother disputing) But having an actual event is very different then open practice. The Fork (As it will be referred to from now on) sure looked nice, and with 329 entries I would say a lot of riders were looking forward to it. It was obvious that the crew had put a lot of time into the place this past week getting ready. So here is how I seen it. And we ALL knows that's all that matters. The Good: 1. Signup: It was quick and easy if you were smart enough to print off the entry forms poster here on PitRacer. I did and it took 35 seconds in the tent. 2. Morning prep: Sunday morning we very good. Again, as in other postings, it could have been deeper and more water but it was fine. 3. The track changes: The new finish line was placed PERFECTLY to keep the races going. MANY other promoters need to take notes on this one. Rest of the track was racy but kinda one lined. (We will cover that later) 4. Event Staff: From the front gate, signup, Starting gate, announcer... Heck, even the lady that made my cheeseburger was pleasant to deal with. The Bad: 1. DUST: I assume intermission was cut short because of time but with the wind blowing towards the crowd, you have to get a handle on the dust down that jump filled front straight. Two water trucks and the track got a mist of water at half time? I heard the trucks had issues, not sure if that's true. IF so, you got to have a plan B for this one. 2. LATE: We were race 22 of 23. Got off the track for the last moto at 7:07. We all know why it was so late. WAY TOO MANY CLASSES.... Now we are just pulling classes out of someone's butt. What is the hell is 85cc 9 to 13??? Half mini jr and half mini sr? 4 85 classes, 3 65 classes and 5 50 classes. NUTS 3. LATE: Started practice almost an hour late. Yes I know the staff knows that but not a good way to start the day. 4. Spectator amenities: Had to lump this one together. No place to sit down. With the whole place being flat. A raised viewing area (a levy) so you can see the track if for sure needed. Port-o-johns... we all know these things are terrible but it makes it worse when they run out of paper before intermission. Trash cans. All where overflowing by early Sunday morning. Parking. Man there were vehicles everywhere. It may be time to level the pee wee track (and please build it somewhere else) you need that prime area for parking. The UGLY: Not the tracks fault. 1. SCUM BALL PARENTS BEATING ON THIER CHILD FOR WHAT HAPPENED ON THE TRACK. Now this is second hand news so i will not use names since I do not know for fact, but I heard some "parents" where dragging their kid around by his helmet and basically beating the crap out of the kid. Listen up, you are at a motocross track in New Vienna Ohio. No one was there from the factory's offering long term contracts to anyone. Let alone, a CHILD in the 50 class. Your son is a good little rider. Let him enjoy racing. I did hear that they were thrown out of the track so it must be true. Good job East Fork crew. To end on a better note. I am sure both the Fork and Route 62 will get better and better with the experience they gain from each event. Thank you both for offering RACING in Ohio. Now, just eliminate half those classes so we get more then 3 laps.
