The ECTA facebook page does not receive their attention for long periods either.

Anybody have their email address? I'd be happy to follow up if you'd post it (or PM it to me). I used to have Keith's cell, but it's not in my directory anymore.

Is the ECTA still in business?  Last I heard they stopped taking membership dues in Spring of this year??

That would tend to make me believe they were honest in their dealings.  Shouldn't take dues until they've got a venue to offer.

For what it is worth; and I know I will probably get shoes thrown at me ....

It's October and still no word.  I have some very good sponsors that are asking for my tentative schedule for next season, it's hard to put in ECTA events when all I hear is "chirp, chirp, chirp"....

You bring up a really good point.

I've pursued a few sponsorship opportunities, but with ECTA, and lately, Bonneville, what can a racer realistically expect to contribute to a sponsor's expectations for ROI?

Other than dragging your bike/car to well attended car shows, our visibility is crushed due to lack of venues and opportunities.

We mostly do this because we love it, but to drag a sponsor in at this point, with any expectation of return on their investment, would be tantamount to fraud.

 Well, at this point in time you might have to admit there might not be  ECTA racing in 2018? ...It just might be the end of it forever....On the other hand,there's nothing stopping any LSR racers from looking into the use of the runway in Michigen and form their own racing organization...

We're still looking at half mile just to keep Amy in seat time. We are lucky that there are 3 events within a half days ride.....Our goal is still to get Amy over 200 in a mile somewhere could have done it in Ohio if there was some racing.    Dead Horse

I've been really blessed that I have "carved" out some sponsorships from the drag, road race worlds and was able to attend some events this past year that's kept everyone happy except for me.  It's not been the easiest (time wise) to get events in, then I have large time gaps in which events are not...

Loring Timing Assoc. also measures your speed in the one mile, you don't have to run under power for the full mile and a half.

More like 3 days ride for us. Blytheville Ark. is 2 day but they have a weird tire requirement.
