I wanted to hold an esk8 race in my town, but was wondering how most people went about advertising for it, and logistics. If I was going to host it at a go-kart track, I know someone who would probably let me use their track, as long as insurance and a bit extra was paid for, but also though it might be cooler to host one sort of alley kat style, around my college campus, because that it is a way more centralized location, and I could host it without having to charge admissions.
I was also wondering how to section the race off so that it is fair. I have ridden with people with evolve, and boosted, and they are just clobbered by even a dual 6355 board with max amps at 40, so if some one brought a dual or all wheel drive with huge motors and like 120 amp ecs, ect, it wouldn’t even be a race, quite franking, it wouldn’t be safe because of the speed difference. I’m really curious what the classes are. I have seen that some people just have an open class, a boosted class, and an evolve class, and an open class(for diy) but I don’t like the idea of excluding diy form classes, though it may be the best way.
I was also wondering if anyone had ever seen an alley kat style esk8 race, where there are no regulations, and no real course setup, it is just race from point a to b. It seems like it would be cool. Or maybe this is a bad idea, it does sound like an easy way to get esk8 banned. Perhaps sticking to a go-kart track where they will of course get insurance would be better. What do you all think?
(also, if there is already a thread for this, let me know and I will pull it, just didn’t see one, but would think there would be one)
