Over Memorial Day weekend several rider's failed to control the use of bicycles, pit bikes, atvs and golf carts by racers, crew and family. After multiple warnings by track security, MARRC officials and CCS staff, the reckless behavior of both unaccompanied minors and adults has forced Summit Point Raceway to add additional security to patrol the paddock and wooded areas during our events.
This will effectively increase the cost of each weekend by approximately $2000 which regrettably will be passed on to the rider at a $10 per event surcharge. Also included in that fee is the increased cost of disposal of old tires, fuel cans and broken awnings that have been left on the property by our participants. (Remember you can return unwanted tires or fuel cans to their respective representative for free disposal.)
This pit vehicle situation can go two ways, one good and one bad. We are 100% in control of the outcome.
IF, and only if, we can prove that we can police ourselves over the rest of the 2019 season, SPR will remove the extra security allowing ASRA/CCS to remove the surcharge. (This is what we hope for!)
The bad ending is the complete ban of bicycle, pit bike, atv and golf cart use at our events. This can happen between the June and August events or at any time SPR Security feels they have lost control of the situation.
Please help us return to the days where we took personal responsibility for the safe operation of pit vehicles by us and our crew.Kevin Elliott
We are pleased to announce the new Pirelli Trackday Challenge as an additional feature during CCS/ASRA weekends that offer a Saturday Practice Day.
Not only will this benefit the participants, giving them the proper instruction and mentoring provided by our excellent staff, it will also introduce them to motorcycle racing with us, should they desire.
Please review the Pirelli Trackday Challenge Overview for more information. Each track day participant will need to complete & sign a 2019 Track Day License Application (free) before participating. The cost for the Track Day is $155 plus a gate fee of $25.The Tentative Trackday Schedule:
After consultation with Homestead Miami Speedway officials, the Championship Cup Series has decided to cancel the April 27-28 event at Homestead Miami Speedway.
ASRA/CCS President Kevin Elliott said "With the interest level in this event lower than expected, it is in the best interest of all parties involved to cancel this event."
Elliott went on to say "All pre-entered riders have been contacted and arrangements made to accommodate them in the best manner possible. We appreciate all the support we have gotten from those consulted on this decision and look forward to returning to Homestead in September and December."
We are working to reschedule the ASRA sprints that had been scheduled for this weekend, the Florida CCS regional event will not be rescheduled.
