That's a pretty shit attitude. The fact there isn't ads everywhere has a lot to do with it. The track is basically word of mouth and that doesn't help bring that many people in. It's one thing for someone to tell you there is a race track, it's a different thing to show them a promo video on YouTube and them actually see what it's about. Maybe there should be an annual bike show at one of the rounds?

Agreed, we can only try. I like the bike show idea and it would go real good with the swap meet idea.

Bike show, swap meet, info sessions, etc. Make a weekend out of it and try and get it to be an annual thing. The first year or two might not be the biggest but with advertising across the Maritimes and social media it could turn into an annual staple for all of the bikers in the Maritimes. Maybe do it on an off weekend from races and have a track day or half track day sessions throughout the weekend or have a Street Stock race to show people how easy it is to get their feet wet.

If we had another big headliner like the Jordan Szoke Extreme show going on that could be cool too.

I was thinking we should have an email sign up sheet for the Motorcycle show, people can voluntarily put their name and email down for the monthly newsletter (we have one of those right?) and have a chance to win a seasons Pit Pass. A gate pass is a better prize than say a T-Shirt because most people won't come to the track alone.

Having Szoke come is a good idea. Maybe have a stunt show there as well. Bring in a little of everything bike related. Maybe for the pit pass it could be a pass for two people that way whoever wins can bring someone.

I wonder what the cost for that show is?

Well I thought if you give away one and the winner brings one or two friends then it makes money instead of costing money.

It would be nice to see something like a YouTube channel started back up with race recap and highlights!

I'd be up to buy some Swag (stickers, license plate for the front of the truck, Hoodie etc).
