First, let me say I like just about everything about MMX, we have a blast racing our Rotax there, and they do a first class job of running the races and facility. Plus the Juan Taco truck shows up for lunchYou can blame that directly on mmx themselves. Between them charging a arm and a leg to go there, and basically turning away almost every 4cycle person in the area they have made it well known we are not welcome.
Pitt is a New Castle wannabe and will soon be a rental facility. I hear they are cutting back the local schedule for this year (2014). Practice time was substantially less this past year and kart counts took a dramatic drop. Personally I don't think they cared because the real money is in the rental business as I have been told. The facility is better than ever (minus the bumpy track). But the quality of local racing has been diminished. I hope I'm wrong, but if it gets any worse than last year, then it's time to find something else to do. If you go to the website you will be sure to find plenty of info about the rentals. The sign at the end of the road says "Rentals Today". Not hard to see where they are putting their effort.As I mentioned at one point before, top notch facilities are not going to welcome a small series like the gold cup. When you have a multi million dollar facility they have to pay the bills. I guarantee they make more off their rental karts for the week than if the gold cup came for the weekend. Seriously. They could barely care less if they even had local racing because the rentals are doing so well financially. Notice new castle was not on the schedule as well. That is another facility that is expensive as well. With the numbers dwindling at man cup I assumed it wouldn't be going back to new castle. I don't blame WKA at all for going to places that are more affordable. In the end it hopefully results in better awards for the karters. It's an unenviable position trying to make a scheduling that is : quality tracks, spread out geographically, and tracks that are affordable so they can turn a profit. As much as many dislike going to camden constantly i'm sure it is very cheap compared to most. Kershaw and Pitt are about as good as it gets in the current state of the gold cup I would think as far as facility.
