i found this lot out a few weeks ago, this was the e-mail i sent nick about my findings:-
just spoke to the chap who owns York dragway and he was vey straight with me and helpful, gave me a hell of a lot of time too. anyways the cost to hire the strip with no hidden extras like V.A.T is approx 5k, yes 5K!!. OUCH. he gave me a full breakdown of what this covers and some of it is gate staff, pit crew,timing gear,signing on staff, full toilet facilities, food cart, staff for public address(commentators basically) etc.... then they have overheads which he breathed over. i was pretty straight and told him that we probably cant afford that kind of outlay for the number of members we would have interested. instead of putting the phone down he gave me another option as follows:-
because i said we dont have the members to pay for that kinda cost he said to generate intrest and a much cheaper option i should contact him when the season starts next year. now as we are a club we could have our own marquee(spelling) if we want, in our own area which he would allocate on the day before. we would be seperated from the RWYB and all cliosport members would run together with a C** race number. the men upstairs would then publish and update a table after every cliosport race to show the fastest down to the slowest, and to make there be something to aim for for all clios he recommended we have a trophy for fastest reaction time where power is not a factor. we could also have our own barbecue etc should we desire. and all for the usual entry and signing on fee of £23.50 per person.
craggy mate i take it youve been speaking to steve murty then lol
ill have a word with his son mick cos i know him quite well and if we can sort summat out between us it may work out to be a bit cheaper......like i said before its gunna be even cheaper if we have an inter-club shootout...........get a mag intrested and people will come flocking just to get in the mag....were happy , the mags happy and it works out cheaper for all involved
Lets hope PGTi doesnt start to mess up their distribution like before. If theres one thing that put them out of biz the first time, it was the fact that you never knew when or where it was coming out, and when it did, all 3 copies sold out by the end of the day. Hope they learnt from their mistakes! But when it does come out, please post on this forum so everyone can go and find it!
