The Grand Prix in March was discussed.
Jon Van Hoove from the Wild Bunch suggested that we split the round 1 & 2 apart. Claiming that the cost for racers and families will be too high, causing racers not to attend. Then, in turn will skip the rest of the series and put the other GP clubs in Jeopardy.
As of now the GP schedule stays as scheduled
