Default OPGP Series???

Anyone have any thoughts? Any confirmed venue's other than Sarasota? Unlimited class looks like it would bring a few racers out, more affordable, safer, not the most money wins type racing. Any input would be great!

Thanks!

I gotta imagine one of the toughest "first orders of business" with any new org is finding a name that hasnt been used yet

opinions on this series seem to be mixed. i'm not about to judge it as it has not yet taken it's maiden sail, but i will say, this far into 2015 (almost march) i would've expected to see some more organization and formalized press releases, announcements etc. aside from sarasota, the race sites announced (fy myers, destin, michigan city and some others) seem questionable. new large endeavors obviously take time and money to get rolling, let's all see how it plays out.

Like it or not APBA LLC had good venues, good boat counts, GMC sponsorship, good TV coverage. F1 & F2 racing that average people could relate to. The canopy classes were larger also. Really should be OPT part 5 or 6, I lost count...
