This just in:<BR><BR>"I want to take this opportunity to point out that your magazine has incorrectly reported why RPM raceclub cancelled the March TMS event. IT HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH MONEY!!!<BR><BR>"I spent all day Monday with Alan Blair and Pete Martins trying to figure how to make that track safe enough to race. We spent countless hours documenting the safety concerns, posted the information to the riders on our BBS. The final conclusion after observing that TMS did not make any changes from last year to address our concerns was to cancel the race.<BR><BR>"To my knowledge Sean Clarke had absolutely no direct knowledge of why we cancelled this race other than Alan reported to Evelyne (Clarke, President of WERA) that we felt it was not in the best interest of the racers to hold that race after having a 'BBS referendum' to ensure the racers understood why we were considering canceling the race.<BR><BR><BR>"I consider that RRW headline/story disappointing. Please follow this link if you would like to read more about how the RPM process and decisions took place.<BR><BR> you have any questions, you may contact me via this email address or Alan Blair-President, RPM at firstname.lastname@example.org"<BR><BR>Marcus McBain<BR>WERA/Expert #95<BR><BR><BR>(Editor's note: The story McBain is complaining about was posted on this website moments before he sent the above reply.
