A question for Vic. riders,why is their so little support from you for RR at Winton espically for FX? they get a few entries from you but considering you are regarded as the second biggest state re riders I find your attitude very disappointing NSW and SA provide the bulk of entries you are a very insulated lot who seem to enjoy being lead by the nose and cannot or will not think for your self.
In Victoria right now they nearly have a race meeting on nearly every other weekend so their is lots of choice and people usually commit to their club championships which leave them with not a lot of funds to do other events. Plus we do not have a database of active competitors in Victoria so actually getting entry forms to them is difficult. Having spoken to a number of Victorian competitors they nearly all say the same thing and that is; 'there is that much racing on in Victoria that most of the meetings are suffering and don't have many competitors entering either'. I have seen this happen in Vic before, they go through cycles of boom and bust with either to few local events on or to many. We are not alone on this front either, very few Vic's are travelling to enter the ASBK either.
Still it is and always should be the choice of competitors to race where they want to and if right now if the majority of Victorians would rather do local club racing then that is their choice and that should be respected.
