rent lime rock for $3500...

Postby lunatic_magnet » Sun Mar 17, 2013 8:57 am

just saw a story where lime rock is for rent for club events, up to 40 people for $3500. less than $100 per person for a whole day of autocross on your own track, not bad at all. i don't think we'd have the numbers to make it happen for us, but it's a cool thought.

Registered members to the board: 346
active members within the last three months: 50 - 60 ( i didn't feel like counting, but the stats are here : memberlist.php?mode=&sk=c&sd=a#memberlist )
NEC-F supporters: 23 ( of those 10 have not been active on the board this year )
there's generally 20 - 30 regular contributors at any given time. Probably about 15-20 "hard core regulars" that have either been here from the start or joined along the way and stuck around.

Getting numbers out to a FREE event takes a lot of planning and promoting. A paid track event... lots of people would say great idea at first, then when planning comes fewer people would be interested, then when money time comes you end up with even less.

A guy can dream....always wanted to run any car I've ever owned on a track.

And plus $87.50 per person? For something like this it's hardly breaking the bank. The autocross course in RI is $140.

Your only hope at a CHANCE of making this happen is to include many other groups of cars. Like Jay said most will say ok then back out later.
