Brands Indy-do you want it??

A rhettorical question, we have the track, it's costing us loads to hire it, and I am doing a VERY cheap Brands trackday-so why have I only got 22 entries with only 8 weeks to go??? Don't you WANT to do Brands??

The offer is: get me your form now and I won't cash the cheque or debit your card until September-fair enough??

The other option is: do you want me to throw this open to bikes other than Ducati's and mates of members? Let me know people as I is getting worried..........

John

I simply can't justify the expense of getting there etc just for the Indy circuit, otherwise I would support you.

Ditto Lily's comments, too far to justify for us especially for the short circuit

Understand that Lily, and Nick-it would be very difficult to do it any cheaper since I need 97 entries to break even and I can only have 105 in total! If you can get a Brands Indy trackday for less money then the operator is making a loss.
But-it's the information I need-perhaps Brands is too expensive for a club trackday?

John ..

... all DSC trackdays should be for members of the club who should be allowed to ride whatever they want. I really get annoyed when you start out saying Ducatis only and then when it gets close to the day it suddenly become anyone who can pass the mirror test

what's wrong with the indy curcuit, it's still a day of work and more time on a trackday surely, plus it's a duke day only.
I have no problem with it.

price wise, nothings cheap in this world, go to your local theme park and wastes loads there.
I know what i prefer.

cheers
robin

Understand you point Henry old mate, but most members wouldn't support you I think-I will get loads of flack for even suggesting other bikes are allowed-I just can't win can I?

sorry, however much it was - or wasnt, we cant do this

too close to Cadwell last race, for AK to risk dropping it somewhere, with only 2 days to fix it - and going to work too.

Just back from hols the w/end before, so couldnt get more time off work

Sorry John
