if the promotor struggles to make the event exciting, the punters will either not come, and if they do and are not satisfied with thier experience, they won't be back.
if there is nothing to keep the kids entertained, they won't be back either, and thus another generation of spectators/competitors/marshalls etc are lost to another pastime.

I think personally they just need better advertising and promotion so people know there is a race on its as simple as that to me.

In answer to your question, no, Timaru [Levels Raceway] the lap record was set by Kayne Scott 3 seasons ago in a Holden and was only beaten this weekend by Angus Fogg. Last year Andy Booth won Race 2 after catching and passing John McIntyre.

The weekend was one by Kayne Scott, 2 scratch race wins, and 9th in the reverse grid race, proved more than enough to extend his Championship lead over John McIntyre.

Youlden had a shocking weekend, which saw him start from pole for the reverse grid race. Luke started on 4 brand new "Stickers" tyres, and ran away to win comfortably, however both Baird, Fogg, and Edgell were running faster lap times but unable to run Youlden down a long safety car period did not help McIntyre or Scott get through the middle order and finished 8th and 9th respectively.

Not a truer word has been spoken...... To get people you do have to advertise but to keep people you need to make sure they are entertained and not have long drawn out spaces....

You have to look at indy or any V8 supecar meeting where there is something going on all the time...

And you look at V8 Supercars and they have 1000 times more threads than NZV8's... quite simple, NZV8's is to V8 Supercars what provincial rugby is to Super 14.... and the number 2 always gets the dregs....

Good to see Mr Edgell moving up the field after the massive crash at Pukekohe, Motorsport gets the rating on TV for the NZV8's so now just need to get the punters to the tracks. I think we need a radio network and TV network to promote the racing at that level which will slowly move people from the couch to the track.

The sad par is that they only bits from the weekend that made it to TV3 news was a piece on a pommie driver in the Toyota Class and a crash in the V8 race. No results, nothing, nadda, zip.

The scrapbook of the Timaru meeting made out of the Timaru Herald which is part of the Fairfax Group indicates that there was about three full size newspaper pages of cuttings generated over the week of the meeting. These releases generated by the Herald were also circulated via the NZ Press Association.

The questions is why is some this material that is all ready within the largest newspaper group in NZ not released elsewhere.

Promotion included Newspapers both mainstream and community based, TV and Radio throughout the South Island, a Street Parade through Timaru, Driver signing sessions at the Caroline Bay Carnival. Ticket giveaways on the local radio stations, School visits by drivers.
The District Mayor promoted the event and stressing to anyone who would listen about how important motorsport and the circuit is to the economic well being of the Sth Canterbury community. The Deputy Mayor was taken on hot laps of the circuit all of which was reported by the media.

Kids activities included bouncy castles, a trapeze that adults were too scared to use (kids had no fear and it was busy all weekend) Noddy car rides etc, etc.

Displays included the Hot Rod fraternity at large and even a pipe band was in attendance (many South Islanders are of Scots descent)

In real terms I do not think that much else could have been done to get people through the gateway short of the local police driving through town and arresting anyone found on the streets and transporting them to the circuit.

How one gets Auckland based media companies more concerned about the plastic parts of out society rather than the real thing to follow the sport with similar entheusism as the supporters..............

I have not seen the figures yet but there are allways two sets of figures, the one that the media use which includes all corporates, crews and freebees along with the paying public and the one that I prefer to use which is how many actaully paid at the gate to get into the circuit. By the looks of the embankement and car parks on Sunday I would suspect the figures would be around 9800 and 6300 respectively for the Sunday. The newspaper said 10,000.

Truth is that Timaru year in and year out normally has the greatest number of spectators of any circuit in NZ outside of the V8 Supercar meeting. The Teretonga January meeting is normally the other big crowd puller of the season.

Many circuits quote figures made up from totals on the park for every day of the meeting including test days hence figures of 20-25,000 etc that you sometimes hear bandied about

The crowd numbers at this meeting over the past 20 years or so have remained pretty static on the Sunday, Probably have increased slightly on the Friday & Saturday as a result of the timetable and programing some races onto the Saturday. This year there were less Corporates and Doris's hanging around the pits.
