Quote from: Myst1cPrun3 on May 01, 2019, 11:10:12 pmThe point I was attempting to make is so much the fact the track being closed as to the reasons behind it.

As for money requirements, it all really depends how far you want to go, however it is extremely difficult to get the funds for anyone to have a bash at entering anything more than a national stage. The British talent Cup boasts some of the highest rider running costs around, as it was something I did debate when it was being founded, but saw the cost and just closed the laptop.
If you're only wanting to do club racing, (I'm talking novice - ameatur, even below semi pro)
Then the cost is slightly more maneageble, however its debatable how far one will get on a career, if that's even a goal.
And to be honest, club racing at this level has seen an influx of newcomers, and the paddocks are much fuller than they were 5-10 +years ago, with the newcomers classes I've seen having at least 10 riders each, with some as young as 12 in them
I'd say the VERY entry level is growing, but after that it's iffy, the only reason I called this topic 'the death of club racing' is because of the future implications of getting lawyers involved to overturn the signing of an indemnity form/contrac

fab racing and bsb's partnership isnt doing anything to help the clubs like thundersport and bemsee either. the costs are astronomical and usually the person who wins btc ends up riding in moto3 for a year only to never be seen again probably because theyve been milked of all their savings and are now in alot of debt. its very sad

this is bullshit though. riders know the dangers, they shouldnt be allowed to compete if they dont acknowledge they very well could die in a crash. everyone who races knows this. but theres always one dickhead who just cant let things go, cant allow people to enjoy their hobbies, this track looks the bollocks, id LOVE to ride around it. guess i cant until this prick drops the claims. i mean who the fuck in their right mind crashes and then blames the circuit?!?!? ok, yeah, if its really REALLY bad and EVERYONE is complaining then fine, something needs to be done. but you dont ever go as far to get legal action taken against a track because of your own error, thats just selfish and ignorant, theres alot of those people in bike racing unfortunately but not to this extent!
honestly people like this make me sick, its not just the circuit that suffers, its the competitors since im sure there are some who only do aintree, for whatever reasons, it could be their favourite, they could be local. anything. shutting a track down because you want some money from an accident regardless of it being life changing or not, is a cunt move to make. theres insurance for racers out there, he clearly didnt have any and after seeing how much he couldve got he probably cant help himself. pathetic excuse for a man. hes not just taking away from competitors, hes taking it away for the owners, the marshalls who im sure do it for free just so others can enjoy it, and the spectators who im sure there are a bunch of them who love aintree and probably go to every event.
i know its not the right thing to say but i really wish this guy gets alot of hate of alot of people for causing so much shit. ive had big crashes, but ive never blamed it on the circuit, and always taken responsibility where due. some things are unavoidable but those situations are unavoidable in general. shit happens, you get unlucky, thats life. fucking man up and deal with it instead of fuckign other peoples shit up just so u can get some money from it. gross. i really hope he doesnt get fuck all for this cos itll only become a trend and theres always gonna be the next twat waiting to make a claim against a circuit.
Uk am racing is dying for other reasons besides some tracks being closed.
It's too expensive. To get anywhere you either have to be the next casey stoner, or have a LOT of money. Teams in bsb are asking young riders for silly amounts of money plus crash damage just to join their teams. 20 grand PLUS CRASH DAMAGE. thats almost someones yearly salary?! Sponsors dont want to sponsor because businesses are struggling. Riders resort to doing not so legal things just to afford to carry on doing what they not only love but are REALLY good at.
I've seen too many talented riders go nowhere because of this. sponsors just don't want to know. teams are after the money instead of actually supporting an up and coming rider. Teams are even literally scamming people. None of this gets publicised because its very very bad for bsb and Motorsport in general. People are having to be so careful whilst reading contracts n shit... shouldnt have to. things like if rider leaves team at any point he still has to pay for the rest of the season, some teams have even taken payment upwards of 20 grand and literally disbanded the team giving the rider nothing back.

thats whats killing am racing. if u can only just afford club racing, you might as well give up now because unless u got a BIG wod of cash sitting around somewhere, you're going nowhere. end of.
I know this because the guys i know dont have millions (literally) you are not going anywhere.
British talent cup. Scott ogden gets pole and a win. i raced against that kid. never beat him, but he also never won the championship, i think he finished third in the championship i was in, which was a junior class at the time 13-18 year olds.
the other riders? well ones parents own HM quickshifter, and is riding a thousand AND a 600 across the nation (he also did not win the championship, or any at the time of writing this). the guy who won the championship? well, hes in British Talent cup, capable of winning, very talented rider. very fast.

i know i speak alot of semi professional racing. but its still the same for any am racers who aspire to be more.
old saying but still stands true today: Its not what you know, its who you know.        And also how much money you're willing to spend. (because even people who know the right people still dont have enough money to convince them to give them a ride for a year)

General Discussion / Re: Rendering code rewrite
April 26, 2019, 04:29:41 pm
Quote from: PiBoSo on April 20, 2019, 08:38:30 pmThe parts of rendering code still using the legacy fixed pipeline of OpenGL are being rewritten to use the programmable pipeline instead.
The reason is to try to solve the poor performances on Radeon cards.

Sadly, results so far have been disappointing to say the least...
Only 12 fps more, a mere 10% improvement.
My signature is more relevant than ever  :(
might jsut be me but i really like the warmer look on the higher fps photo, not sure why its different but i really like it. i think u should keep that lol

also, as long as its possible to maintain over 60fps you'd think many would be okay, since i doubt many use or even care about a racing game at higher refresh rates, i know id chose lack of tearing over a 3 digit number lol excluding freesync etc.
yessss come on u c***s!
Quote from: Myst1cPrun3 on April 02, 2019, 02:58:24 pmIs the championship standings going to be posted somewhere?

That's great news.  :) 
...about racing starting again - not the bit about the track nearing a release - that bit sounds optimistic.  ;D

Less so today than yesterday though.  Yesterday's step 1 was selecting all the hedges I'd done the night before and punching delete.
Between some poor UVing and having a bit of a funny shape - was going for the 'flattop' look that they cut them to at OM 70-odd percent of the time.
...but it wasn't really doing it for me - hence delete-all.   ::)

Last nights efforts are looking better.  Only done memorial and mountside so far and they still have that obviously-an-extrusion look but as base geometry goes - yeah, looking kinda hedgy.

...and should look even hedgier with the shaders applied.

looks sick m8
