I think Chris will only be able to do "Regional B" points (down to 15th place, not 40th like normal regionals) but I think it would still be appreciated, especially by those who want to do the BDS next year and are looking for a single point just to meet the second release of entries (first release needs 50 points).

But then if the price has to go up, maybe not worth it, as it's certainly fair to say that the majority of MiniDH racers don't care about points.

Bear in mind a poll on this forum is not going to be representative, as people on this forum are the ones more likely to care about points.  You get plenty of locals etc at MiniDH races who have never raced before, may never race again, and certainly don't spend their days reading about racing on the internet :)

Fair point seb, never thought of it like that.

I was thinking of the chance to get a point on the board for the BDS as there's not much opportunity out there in December.

Yea alot of people will be looking for points in December as the points would go towards their 2011 ranking. I think its definitely a good idea.

However, would it possibly move it away from the 'grass roots racing' theme/ idea? Just a thought...

Doesnt affect me really, as i know im not good enough to race BDS, but thinking of newer riders really.
