I Ride: I don't anymore but can still out ride you!
Question PGP and S/M
did they destroy the s/m race scene?

We where a happy go lucky bunch when it was just Supermoto USA, a great track that cost $$$$$$$$ to rent out split the race scene and now there is not a local one, this makes me sad

Glad my kids don't race anymore, but I miss it too

They where not permited for motorcycles when they started their own S/M series which destroyed the other sm race series which has left the sm race people out all the way around!

Come on man you know I love sm and my kids loved to race it as well, I just could not ignore what has happened anymore IMO (inserts IMO so no one can say I am slandering anyone)

All I know is that I have 1 1/2 days of credit there that I can't use.

You can not blame PGP for SMUSA(nw) falling off. PGP had bikes and cars in the CUP but the council is playing games on the Verbage. Don't forget 2stroke Karts aren't even allowed there. Right now the Council is playing the wait game and keep postponing Hearing dates but I think there is more to this as well but I will not comment on this publicly

A lot of these issues come from Pacific Raceway not PGP. There is a lot more to this then what people know. I am not going to get into it, also don't blame PGP for SMUSA(nw) coming undone as there is more to that as well that people don't know.


People need to come out to PGP on Saturday to sign the petitions and have some fun. Help support our local track and help build SuperMoto back up.

Let's all work together to get SuperMoto back into the PNW and come up with solutions not blame one entity for the falling of SuperMoto. Many variables has caused this not one thing. So we need to work together and get it back and I am going to work my ass off to do what I can to get it back

I really miss smusa, especially the variety of tracks. I'd much rather run a series at many different venues than the same ol track over and over.

I also like parking lot and kinda offbeat tracks vs the buttery smooth kart tracks, throws a little more inconsistency in which for me is what supermoto racing is all about.

Funnest race of the year for me is Evel Knievel days. Great people, crazy environment and running through town just seems so wrong.....yet so right

I thought someone had posted this :( ... Here's the info I got from FB and this is being put on by the Import guys.



------------------------------------------

Last summer, PGP Motorsports Park was one of busiest tracks in Washington for amateur drifting, lapping, and supermoto. It was an affordable location where enthusiasts could spend time with their friends and safely enjoy their cars. Recently, operations have been restricted to four-stroke go karts by King County.

More information about the restriction can be found here: http://pacificgp.com/news-photos/new...perations.html


As expected, many car enthusiasts in the area are upset about the ruling. ImportMeet.com was approached to organize a meet to show support for PGP during these difficult times. Our goal for this meet is to bring out every make and model of car/bike (import and domestic) and have a large meet at their facility. PGP has held so many great events that it's our turn to show them that we will continue to support them. There will be a petition the day of the meet and we will be collecting signatures showing our support for alternative uses on the track.

The meet is FREE to attend is open to every make and model of car/bike. We're also inviting every style (lapping, stance, drfit, VIP, street) and plan on doing the best we can to park similar cars next to each other in the paddock (if they RSVP).

NOS Energy Drink will be providing energy drinks and a DJ will be present. The track will be live with their 45mph rental go karts. 15 minute sessions will be available for $25 with various competitions organized by PGP staff.

PGP will also have a beer garden in their facility with all of the proceeds going directly to their legal fund.

Since we're trying to support the track and only provide positive publicity, we ask that you follow these rules:
No revving
No racing
No burnouts
No littering/stealing

If you would like to help by sponsoring this event please email info@importmeet.com.

RSVP for a paved parking spot (registration closes at11:59pm on the 24th):
