You understand that since you are currently a race winner and regular  
podium finisher, that your opinion on getting trophies every race may  
be a bit biased?

Uh, that was my point, thanks for making it again? Folks not picking  
up trophies they earned every weekend.

Well, that also reinforces my point that bringing them a significant  
group of "customers" could get us more leverage than we have with a  
"club" that doesn't care. So, uh, thanks for making another point for  
me, again.

If that's the case, then why don't we have per-race trophies? The BOD  
ignored the drivers? Then where's the hue and cry from the masses to  
lynch the BOD and bring per-race trophies back? The only people I've  
heard demanding them here are folks always finishing in the top 5 who,  
you must admit, have a vested interest.
