I may go for Saturday. Not sure about Sunday with South being Monday. I need tire swap and drive time!

I’m might have decided that I am a fair weather track day person. Spring and fall for track. Summer for mountain riding on and off road. Winter for the sand. 12 months of riding is ok by me I guess!

I'm going the same route. I actually like riding in the rain, but I worry about the other folks, and we rarely get rain. We get that mixed stuff, which sucks.

For those that haven't seen this already.

Wow.

John Cook said:
All,

Due to several factors including high gas prices, high everything prices,
low registration numbers, and CMP raising their prices this year by about 30%
we have decided to cancel our two remaining CMP events and focus on Road
Atlanta, NCM Motorsports Park, and Jennings GP going forward.

We love the track staff, love the safety and recovery crew, and love the
track itself but because the prices went up so much there and they host so many
motorcycle events in general we just can't continue to host events at CMP.

There is a contraction taking place in the track world and we along with all
other td and race organizations are definitely feeling the pinch. We are
well over half full for Road Atlanta but barely have 30 riders committed to
CMP with only 10 days left to register. There is no way we can come close to
the numbers we need, especially since the track has another motorcycle
organization scheduled this weekend - one week prior to our event.

I will send this same message out via email to all our members on
MotorsportReg shortly and will refund all monies paid by this evening.

We apologize for the change in plans but have to do what is necessary to
continue to stay in business. Thank you for your understanding.

John Cook, Owner
Track Day Winner

A lot of changes in our brave new world.

Certainly making it harder for me to get to 400 before I retire.

Yep just got that. Well maybe I should relook at CMP next Sunday. Even if it’s a half day due to rain would be worth it for no crowd?

AND I’d love to see another org taking this spots! Think there will be takers from N2 or PRE?

I doubt it. I never said this, but I hope not. I love having tracks available for us to enjoy the sport, but... The rates they're all charging for the tracks, garages, etc. are highway robbery. Low demand would help with that.

This weather pattern never helps with attendence either. No one wants to sign up until last minute.

John's claim that all the orgs are seeing a drop in attendance backs up my experience so far this year. It makes sense:
  • Gas is more expensive.
  • Bikes are more expensive.
  • Everything is more expensive.
Personally we're going to keep doing days this year. Hoping to ride with as many of you guys as possible. :)

I agree. I missed N due to circumstances. Both CMP events seemed full to me. S was empty. I am sure I am the minority but I would pay more for less people. And I might do a CMP day with MOC for this reason. Also I am picking less people tracks this year like P hopefully a few times later on.

So the email said they are canceling the next two CMP dates. I only see two left on their calendar. So is the 30-31 being canceled too?

Their site still shows both CMP dates (as of right now) but in the email he definitely said they are cancelling both remaining CMP dates this year.

CXL. So that only leaves S as an option that weekend.
