Back in the Jurrassic, some of us young dummies used to go over to Lake Berryessa take a few refreshments, and jump off this rock. The lake was fairly new then, and not too many people knew about it. Before long, the place was crawling with drunken assholes, and people started diving head first into water that wasn't all that deep in some spots. People got up in arms about it, and it eventually became a law enforcement problem.Maybe the Vinatage folks should give up on winning any races, develop a Secret Handshake for those who are truly running vintage machinery, and just ignore the 'winners' of the race. At race end, everyone could go over and congratulate the 9th place finisher. ignoring all those with more money than love of vintage machinery. Whenever anything gets popular, it usually becomes a victim of it's own sucess. Sounds like that's what's happening here.

Hey, it's racing. Competitive bastards compete at everything, including who runs the races. If the Indy 500 could be destoryed then let's not be surpised that a semi pro series which nobody watches is on it's death bed.

So is this what happened here Dangerous? Is there any site or article that could tell us what really happened? I believe MO should look into this. I mean these guys are all day just drinking champagne and chatting up high class call girls supplied by motorcycle manufacturers in the faint hope of scoring an extra point in a comparo.

I have no idea. I just know that a lot of fun activities that a small group of people participate in has a family kind of feel to it, and it never survives if what they're doing gets too popular. I wonder if the guy in 'World's Fastest Indian' were around today, if anyone would have made room for him to compete. The town of Carmel was founded by a bunch of bohemians who would be shunned if they lived there now, even if they could afford it.
