    I'll continue the drift off topic with you Jim... I've got a two word answer to more venues... "Demo Racing"..

    I've been involved with several and fans and pilots alike have a grand ol' time. It's not the tooth and nail battles we see at Reno but, generally, it's a lot easier on equipment, and people and it's just downright fun!

    Demos can be put on pretty much anywhere there is a major air show without violating the show box, again, fans and pilots alike love it, if there were lots more attention given, sponsors would like it.. and on and on..

    This is not going to be a good year, or two (hopefully, less than even one) to talk about anybody doing anything that costs them money.. but we can dream!



    PS.. if this thread takes off in this direction further, I can split it into a thread aptly titled, say "addititional racing venues" or something of that ilk... Lemme know!

    Actually, we talked about doing it at last year's CAF Airsho as well. Lots of hoops to jump through for a Demo Race.......lots of hoops. I'm not saying it can't be done, but it ain't as easy as everyone seems to think.
