News: Polini Cup Race Series Cancelled

This news from Louie at SPI Parts:

Hello Polini Cup Racers
It is with a heavy heart that we have decided to cancel the Polini Cup events for the rest of the year.  We are not  a race promoter but began last year planning  the Polini Cup event because of the demand from our customers.  Last year the attendance was great but began to taper off at the end of the year. We have also seen online in different social sites that many of the people don't have the resources to allow them to continue to race or have posted negative statements that have inhibited  the growth of the event.  It has been a great event for us and we have enjoyed meeting all of you.  Thank you to everyone that has been so kind to all of us here at Polini USA.  Best of luck to everyone with their future racing endeavors.  We look forward to continuing to support racing.  As the interest improves we will remain involved.

Bummer! Racing in the USA is hard to sustain because those who are interested in racing don't often live near each other. The cost of creating & maintaining a scooter, traveling, and finding the time to race can be too much. I hope that the other race series can attract and retain plenty of racers in order to keep it going.
