It was 4 weeks prior to FoSC and offered twice the track time for double the entry fee. Incredibly, all but 20 Group N guys said, "I'll give it a miss and do FoSC instead." With just 20 EOIs, the category manager had no choice but to reluctantly refuse the offer.

Once again, I don't really know what you're on about. Maybe you should voice your own opinion on the subject, rather than criticising others who do . I'm sure that their are about, oh, 400 competitors from this year's event who would agree with me - "why should we get same/less track time as 2008 event in an expanded 2009 event, when we were the reason it is being held again in 2009?"
Also, as a spectator I was clearly stating what I would prefer to see. I am paying my money to attend something I want to watch. If I get a choice on what I want to watch, or a say in the matter, even better.
I would love to hear what you would do, or how you would like to see this situation unfold.
PM me if you need me to to explain myself in finer detail. I can take you through it step-by-step .
By the way,
