Announcement Emmen teams 2017 27 januari 2017
Last year’s teamrace was an incredible success. 31 teams (of 8) all booked in on the day bookings opened and forced us to close bookings same day. We worked out a format where all teams could race and we had a great weekend. However these 31 teams was right at the max for one day.
Over the last months we received several questions from other (English) teams who wanted to race emmen teams 2017. This forced us to look into the teamrace. We decided we’re not opening bookings upfront this year. Instead all last year’s teamscaptains are getting an invite where they have to reply on. When we still have some places left afterwards, we will open bookings for other teams.
We will raffle the available places when necessary. Main reason for this decision is to support the drivers who made Emmen and race several races at our track throughout the years. We don’t want regulars to be left out and being substituted by a team which races once a year. We know all teams last year honoured their booking and don’t want to risk teams being left out by another team who don’t honour their booking in the end.
All in all it’s a measure we don’t like to take because we all like new faces and especially new teams. But not if it means to leave out the drivers who made Emmen to what it is today. The format will be more or less the same like last years. The will be some minor adjustments but more on this later on.
