    If you actually look at the area being proposed, I can't see it causing as many problems as people anticipate. I spend a lot of time on Anchorage Rd and the amount of ATV's in the area as it is should be taking into consideration here!

    I have attended many of the races on Bell Island and find the ferry to be an absolute nuisance, especially the most recent race when people didn't even know if they were going to get back across to Portugal Cove.

    I also agree that this is a family oriented event, I take my young children with me and my eldest absolutely loves it, even looks forward to going over just to watch them practice.

    I am 100% in support of this proposal and would help in anyway I could to help it get passed!

    'Those in favour reportedly argued motocross is a family-oriented sport no different than minor hockey.' Except for the minor detail of having 100 internal combustion engines brapping and screaming all day long. I can also guarantee you not all these machines will be trailered to the area, many will be rode to the track, whether it be along the highways, roads and behind peoples' homes and through farms from all directions, as the parents will be at work or otherwise such as not owning a trailer or pickup truck. An extra 3-4 minute ride on a dirt bike along the shoulder of the road is considered a pleasure ride. As for the decibel limit (noise) on exhaust emissions, those rules have been standing for dirt bikes, ATVs and snowmobiles (and cars/trucks/street bikes) for decades and decades, but yet many are altered to make incredibly annoying loud noise (for the sake of noise) and the law is simply not enforced like most laws in NL, so good luck with the statement, '...the fact the bikes are only permitted to be so loud.' It means diddly-squat in all practicality.

    All the best Chris!! I really hope this gets the go ahead. These races are very well organized and great fun for the family!! I fully support a track somewhere close to town!
