The Border Counties has been postponed, and now can’t find a date. Pic: Jakob Ebrey I’ve just moved house, bear with me here, and I was terrified to see how many items of clothing I own. So much so, I’ve been driven to a cull of selling and charity-shopping old items in a bid to feel less disgusted with myself. That’s about as weird an intro as you’ll ever get to a rally column, but I promise, it’s relevant. And here’s why. Sometimes, it takes a chain of events – like my clothing crisis – to realise that something is wrong. I have a serious problem, and so does rallying. There’s too many multi-venue events. For rallying, that is… A host of events last weekend were postponed, including the Mid Wales Stages, Malcolm Wilson Rally, Donington Rally and Bovington Stages. Like my clothing issues, those events, indirectly and completely by accident, have simultaneously demonstrated and found out why there’s too many events … [Read more...] about Why rallying must cut the number of events
LAWRENCEBURG, Ind. – Wet grounds and a less than desirable weather forecast has forced series officials to cancel Saturday’s USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship event at Lawrenceburg Speedway. “As much as we want to get the season started, there is just no way to get our facility in racing condition for Saturday,” Lawrenceburg Speedway promoter Dave Rudisell said. “Unfortunately, the forecast calls for rain every day including Saturday, and we’ve already had rain every day this week.” The event was to have been the 60th series event held at the southeastern Indiana dirt oval, one of seven venues to have reached that mark. The series will return on July 22 for the 31st annual edition of Indiana Sprint Week and on Sept. 29 for the Fall Nationals. Additionally, the USAC P1 Insurance Midget National Championship makes its lone visit of the season on June 2. The AMSOIL National Sprints get back on the trail April 21 at … [Read more...] about Lawrenceburg USAC Sprint Car Event Canceled

August 2, 2017 The use of custom web forms on your website generates much valuable information from the registrations for your upcoming event. Most registrants will tell you exactly what you want to know in advance, allowing you to do better planning and purchasing. You can get information about their car, engine, transmission, category, and which activities they want to participate in. Many motorsports events have several activities during the event. Typical activities include car show judging, drag racing, autocross and a swap meet. When you use custom web forms, you can find out how many pre-registrants will attend each activity. You also may want to sell other services, such as reserving golf carts, or getting legal terms and conditions signed in advance. This example form from the 2017 F-Body Nationals will give you the general idea. The information you gather will help you with space planning, staffing and other logistical concerns. It can … [Read more...] about Custom Web Forms Improve Event Planning
