Man, I'd be all over that if I didn't live in the Rainforest. I've been looking at the VSCA rules and such. Like you said it's cheap and fun. I already have a sled to run. But I can't justify a 10 hour drive and $750 in gas, lodging, and food for a 15 minute run. Maybe I can get together with some club buddies and talk them into making a track on one of their farm fields when it gets cold.

just so you know you can jump classes to get more riding time if you want...at least in strathcona...my buddy with the scorpion was entered in 3 different races while the buddy with the merc. was entered in 4 or 5 races...not to mention you can run them after the races are complete for more practice etc
