Wont be happening for me. Looks like March will be a trackday month in 07. I will gladly drive 11 hours from DFW to race at Barber but not that "racetrack"

According to mapquest, it's about 11 hours for those guys as well. I realize it is a long drive but it will be worth it. Great place to go racing. Thanks BOD for adding a new track to the schedule.

C'mon Christopher-your bike would looooove that track! /ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif

HA! only 6 hrs for me... but then again, I've got 6 hrs to Hallet, 6 hrs to TWS, 3 to MSR... and 1 to OHR... I gotta move to Dallas... I think the saveings in GAS would pay for the rent difference!!! lol

Curious? Was there any chance of an event to be held at MSR Houston?
It would be nice to have a race in this market. If possible.

Look at the bright side, the 1000 mile round trip to NPR will make the 1200 mile round trip to Hallett seem much more reasonable. And never mind that it's twice as far as MSR (that it's replacing) for me.

Hey, someone's gotta complain. /ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/wink.gif

I *do* appreciate the BOD and everyone taking care of this and getting the schedule out early so we can all get our planning started early. THANKS!!!

NPR will be a major roadtrip yes, mileage is REALLY far for me, but the real bite will be the almost week it will take to be there to set up and tear down. And I don't even get to have any 'fun'.

Iím from south Texas and the nearest from my home town is TWS (8 hrs). Itís becoming more difficult to attend an event due to distance. My friends and I were planning on getting an endurance team together in 2007, but two races at Hallett and now Belle RoseÖ I was really hoping MSRH would make the schedule.

Thanks a bunch for getting the schedule up so early!!!!! Yea, NPR is a drive, especially for Leo and Kevin, but, the way I see it, we have one of the largest (if not THE largest) number of tracks to run on for any amateur group in the country (this doesn't count the WERA National Series). We should be grateful that we have the opportunity to ride so many different tracks.

I'm not looking forward to the drive, but I'm sure it will be worth it. One word....carpool!!!! /ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif

I would love to go to NPR. And it's more like 8h from Dallas. I made Frisco..New Orleans in 7 1/2 before...

Can we move the date up by a week, though? I'm in Brazil attending a wedding that week end. Besides, it's St. Patrick's Day week end /ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif

Seriously, what sucks for me is that there go any championship hopes already as missing a race means you're out. What about that rule someone proposed last year: count 9 out of 10 or something along those lines...?

Anyway, thanks CMRA for posting the schedule so early! That does help a great deal.

If BMR attends all events in '07, our travel distance works out to a little over 7,400 miles (round trip). Drive time (not including stops for meals/fuel) gets close to 150 hours behind the wheel.

If one lived in Tulsa, NPR looks to be about 11 hours at 650 miles. At least racing out of Tulsa, it would add up to about 6,100 miles for the season. (Damn those 75 MPH turnpikes!)

Depending on where one lives in Dallas, you'll travel around 4,200 miles and drive for about 75 hours. That is if you live right next to the interstate. If not, you can just add 10% to the mileage and about 25% to the time. :p

If you attend all the races this season, your looking at somewhere around 11,300 miles and close to 200 hours of driving. /ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/eek.gif Unless you travel REAL LIGHT and FAST... then you might get it down to less than 175 hours. Who knows, you might even get into the high 160 range. Mapquest says it will be closer to 185 hours worth of driving.

I suggest a lot of Red Bull on the drives home. /ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif

Eric, it wasn't the road conditions that kept us from going last year, it was because there was no place to stay. All of the motels/hotels were full with Katrina evacuees and workers.

Yes, there will be an endurance race that weekend.

Sherman,
We should get together and compare notes. I have similar numbers, but I added it up for Dallas, Houston, San Antonio, Austin, Tulsa, Ok City, and Little Rock. LR is the only one that has as much driving as San Antonio. (And Leo, I didn't include Clovis, NM. Nor did I include Minneapolis/St. Paul for that matter. :rolleyes: ) Anyway, LR has about 100 miles more driving than SA next year, about 7150 to 7250 total miles. Ouch. All the other Texas towns (in my list) were under 5700 miles, or 1450 miles less than SA.

And yes, I would like some cheese to go with my whine. /ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif See everyone at TWS.

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Originally posted by David Branyon:
Sherman,
We should get together and compare notes.</div></div>It's all those darn "variables"!

For example, our team's Skunkworx (where the trailer is usually parked in between races) is in the far northwest part of Little Rock. Since our secret location is just a couple miles from a "unnamed" interstate, It cuts down on some of the travel time, but not necessary the distance. Also, due to our far NW location, the only event it is a benefit to is Hallett, since we are much closer to I-40 than I-30. Kinda like the difference between living in Rockwell versus Dallas. Just not quite as far.

For many of the events, our "angle of approach" (which interstates we use to arrive at the various tracks) is very different than those from OK and central, south or west TX. The good part is that due to increased state taxes and federal highway grants, both I-40 and I-30 in AR are being resurfaced and even widened in some cities. This means less travel time. The bad part is that there are many dozens of miles of "one lane" interstates on both I-40 and I-30. This means MORE travel time (and a hope everything is secure in the trailer).

Those are factors that even "travel" software (i.e. MS Streets and Trips) can only guess on travel time and distance. Even when you "update" all the construction and use a GPS. What makes it even tougher to estimate is the "variable" of having a bike in the back of a pick up versus pulling a 24' trailer (gas or diesel?). Needless to say, the Pick up is going to get there a lot faster that the truck pulling a 24' trailer. One would guess those hauling smaller trailers fall somewhere in between when it comes to travel time.

In my constant quest to determine these factors, trying to figure fuel mileage, best weight distribution in the trailer and so on... has basically driven both Jonathan and Pierson crazy. Tony just laughs. My point is that finding the quickest and most economical way to get to these events can easily translate into more than $750 in fuel saving in just a single season. How many tires would that buy? To throw a wrench in all this, are the current fuel prices. With gas costing around $2.00 a gallon and diesel around $2.50, which one is cheaper to haul the trailer?

From a time standpoint, the diesel beat my lil' Hemi every time. Using the diesel can cut around 10% off the travel time (diesel at 70 mph avg. vs. gas at 65 mph avg.). It also gets 2 to 3 MPG better than my gas burner (little difference when diesel get over 70 mph). But with the gas prices dropping faster than diesel, it is sometime could be cheaper to take the gas burner. "Small" and "insignificant" stuff? Only if you think $750 or a $1,000 over a season is "small" and "insignificant". Still, the fuel cost differece is greatest on the "long hauls". This also means that the travel times are greater too. To Oak Hill, it could just be minutes. To NPR or TWS, it would likely be an hour or more... each way.

If gas and diesel prices go up again, you can throw everything out the window (just don't get caught littering).

Attending all events, Austinites would have driven 5128 miles in 2006 and will drive 5658 miles in 2007. Endurance only (skipping OHR rounds) comes to 3688 in '06 vs. 4218 in '07. 2005 was about 150 miles less than '06 in either case.

Attending all events, Austinites would have driven 5128 miles in 2006 and will drive 5658 miles in 2007. Endurance only (skipping OHR rounds) comes to 3688 in '06 vs. 4218 in '07. 2005 was about 150 miles less than '06 in either case.

Never thought about calculating all the hours but we've been doing most of the endurance series since 2002 driving from Kansas City, Missouri...most of the D2Cycles/Howlie Boyz/Longneck/Silverback guys are sick of Army stories by now...I guess that means we need to take a break and race at the local tracks! ha ha

Sherman - if you are bored, what would a full season be from Kansas City Missouri?

Thanks,

Dean,

There are no local KA tracks that compare to CMRA tracks...otherwise we'd be racing there. You just need to move the wife, boys, and the whole D2Cycles crew to TX.

At least you were infantry....artillery stories are really boring. Good times at Barber BTW!

I just looked up the dates for Texas spring break and it is from the 10-18. I am bumbed, I don't know about all of you but I have a vacation planed every year for spring break. No mater what happens I will be at NPR racing. I just thought this was a bad date considering that many riders have kids and have family vacations plained as well. I was wondering if anyone else found this to be a problem. It is cool that the race dates are out so early. Thanks BOD.

Danny, that is a bummer, but not all schools in Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Arkansas and New Mexico have the same breaks and holidays. Not every racer has kids either.

We have to put the schedule together based on available dates at all of our tracks and try like heck not to put a race on top of another race weekend of a competing organization (such as AMA) and national holidays (such as Mother's Day).

The schedule has been posted since September 22 and it seems like that would give everyone plenty of time to plan their schedule for next year.

Why not plan to take your spring break vacation somewhere in Louisiana? /ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/wink.gif
