We don't go to PBIR anymore because the membership never supported those events, and the unfortunate financial reality is that losing money on events can only go on for so long. As for Homestead, we (probably) aren't going there this year because they haven't (yet) had any good weekends to offer us. Everything available had major conflicts and that's another risk we can't afford to take because many Homestead events over the years lost money too. If anyone knows of any groups that might want to split a weekend there, I'm all ears... preferrably vintage or a marque club or karting or similar, not a group offering something similar to what we provide, although I'll certainly consider any opportunities at this point because of course we do want to continue to hold events there.

People vote with their entries and over time those votes have been primarily for Sebring events, especially in the spring and fall (interestingly our winter events at any track have never done well despite great weather, which is why we don't do those anymore either.) But this is pretty simple really: all of our weekends need to, at a minimum, pay for themselves and pay their share of the many yearly expenses... but generally we have no problems that more entries across the board won't fix. So please help us grow, and then we'll book every date we can possibly get. :wink:

You can always come play with us at Road Atlanta and Daytona later this year! Thanks for asking,
