Calder Park Newsletter Friday 15th April 2005

Calder Park Newsletter Friday 15th April 2005

To all legal off-street racers; competitors; fans and other interested parties.

DRAG READ-OUT NOW COMPLETE
Drag read-outs are almost completed and working very will with the last few adjustments being fixed toady for tonight’s event.

NEW START TIME FROM NEXT FRIDAY APRIL 22ND
Friday April 22nd 2005 the gates will open 1 hour earlier at 4pm with racing starting at 5pm. We are able to race if there is a need until 10.30pm pr 11pm. The finishing time will depend on the number of entries and will be a Calder park management decision on the night. The early start is part of our plan for a winter series to be announced soon.

SMALL PRICE INCREASE
We advise of a increase of $3- to the current spectator entry fee of $17- which has been unchanged for many years, the new spectator cost will be $20-.

PLANS FOR A BETTER RETURN ROAD
Calder park management is planning to improve the drag return road and the system and give you the opportunity to return to the start line via the race track. In the long run this will give you more runs per night.

We are planning to have a time shed on the back straight to get your time slip if you use this return. There will be more on this later, expect changes to start next Friday night.

WEBSITE UPDATE www.calderparkmotorsport.com.au
The Calder Park website has been substantially up-dated with amazing results growing to 336,045 hits in March from a very low base of 20,000 in the later months of last year.

We find the success of our website very interesting and exciting particularly as the most busy days for our site are Friday each week with as many as 29,000 hits on a Friday.

We propose some research to establish what role legal off-street drag racing has on our website and I hope you will all help us with this research.

For competitors with access to the internet, you can now print an entry form to complete and bring with you on Friday nights. This will make entry on the day simpler and hopefully faster.

For entry in the future you will be able to enter and pay on-line and save time on the night at the gate.

TEST OF SUPER VIDEO SCREEN
Next Friday you may see a temporary large video screen facing the grandstand.
This is part of our plan to buy a 40 square meter screen to cover our street racing from the start line to the finish line, we believe this will provide a great viewing experience of drag racing for spectators.

SECURITY CAR PARKING
With the theft of 7 cars from the car park at WSID, we are focusing on this area at Calder Park.

While our security parking is okay, we plan to make it more secure with more lighting, more dedicated security and a card system where you must have your part of the ticket to get your car out of the car park.

Your’s faithfully

Calder Park Management

This is all a step in the right direction, maybe except for the entry fee increase. I mean $17 is a lot to spectate i say. It's a catch 22. You get more ppl racing you get more spectators. But you up the entry fee you get less spectators... Yeah that discount list is a good thing.

Rod,
constructive input would be to provide more incentive for ppl to race there machines. Which is what you are doing with the better return road and time boards. And perhaps provide more incentives for ppl to race, ie competitions, prize money, trophies things like that. This will bring more ppl to race and more of there mates to spectate and more spectators in general to see some good racing. By upping the entry fee this will turn many spectators off, and this will be the rise and fall of calder income IMO.

Just food for thought. $17 is high enough, and if you increased your attendance by 2000 ppl per meet with more ppl racing and some very quick cars attending because of better track conditions you do the math???


Cheers.

Just trying to help.

yeah and if that happens there will be alot less quick street cars racing as it will be a prick to get through the pits....ANDRA rules are a little tighter and alot more picky than they are now...

Its $3 you tight c unts...

Id prefer to pay the $3 and be able to see what times the bloody cars run instead of looking at a big blurr and being able to afford a couple of dimmys.

Great to see they are improving the joint, we need to get the nationals back there!
