B.C is split pretty much north from south between future west(south) and the McQueen/MRC series
both have there good points, but for the most part I find the mrc so far to be a rip off. For a spring series race, wrist bands: FW-10$ Vs 15$ MRC-20$ camping: FW-10$ per night VS MRC 20$ per night
MRC is roughly 15$ more per class. plus they do a half day practice but still charge a full day fee.
future west license is $80 and you get a t-shirt...MRC is $140
also MRC is mandatory transponders.
This weekend at popkum is the most I've ever had to fork out to do a single day of racing.
It started with $140 to get into the grounds....(2 wrist bands plus 2 nights camping) Sunday at sign up..naturally I had to pay a day pass for a license but really $40? plus rent a transponder..oh and then 65$ per class! the fee doesn't go down for each additional class..I only signed up for one. I know a lot of people will say " hey motocross isn't a cheap sport to begin with" but these kind of fee's will kill the sport. I cant imagine having 2 kids racing multiple classes with these kind of fee's. To make matters worse, we were "privileged" with a 2 lap practice...to learn a national caliber track.
Future west in my opinion is a bit wet behind the ears and leans a bit on the side of "family fun" rather than hardcore racing but their pricing is more on par with what fee's should be.
and that's my rant.
