I dunno, you might be right. I know I wouldn't travel to Reno for a 100 hp race class, but I would for a half dozen little planes going 450 mph.Raw speed will not get audiences. Getting close to the action is what gets the audience.
Now... with a smaller, slower class of racing it would be easier to find multiple venues and bring the races closer to folks like me, and I'd easily go a short distance for such a program. Reno, though, and the unlimiteds would still die.
Are we resolved that the death of unlimiteds is inevitable (topic, remember?). Can Reno thrive on Sport class?
