Ok, i'm gonna throw my 2 cents worth in here. I was a supporter of the hornet class when it first started. I had friends with kids that raced in it, and i thought it was fun. That was when there were 15-20 cars. I think it's prolly time to combine the classes. The point of the hornets was for the kids to run with other racers who had about the same driving level. What's the difference between running them both on the track at the same time and scoring them separately, or just letting them all race together? You still have the same risk of a 12 year old being on the track with a 40 year old. I can honestly say from my experience working on these cars, they suck to repair. Any kind of big wreck opens them up like a can of tuna fish. I do agree that there needs to be an affordable beginners class, but I would much rather see them running 4 cylinder mustangs and pinto's rather than front wheel drive cars. If they combined the classes, you could start allowing the 4 cylinder rear wheel drive cars. I know, I know, then there's the thought of "well, then everyone is going to have to buy a new car to be competitive" well, lets face the facts, the people that are in it for the fun and don't care if they win won't go and spend a bunch of money building a new car, because they do it for fun. Just my 2 cents worth, not trying to upset anyone.
PS I used to hate the idea of Mods, but over the last couple years it's grown on me. I'd like to see them at Oakshade.
