Hi All,
Today at the Autodrome I spoke with a lady representing a company bringing a round of the 'Beetle Fun Cup' to Dubai. She was very open to us participating as a track side attraction.

In order to follow up I would like to put together an introductory pack outlining the events we have participated in in the past with some supporting pictures and figures.

Can you guys help out with -

1) A list of the events we have attended in the past and any future events we already have confirmed
2) A list of any media coverage we have received
3) Any statistics, total site members, number of event participants (including club summer series and drift events) any sponsors etc

Lastly, what do we expect/need from a event organiser assuming a day time event.

Duane.

Hey Duane,

Good work, it seems that all of us are in some way pursuing options to get the exposure we need.

You have all the detail on the events as posted by the other guys and at some point we should make an e-scrap book on the events, or consolidate them on this site. That way we can refer everyone to the site.

In the interim, I think it would be fair to state that each of our events has attracted around 30 enthusiasts, and has been very well received and attended by the general public.
We are always willing to do these events either as a 'display' or if the opportunity arises, as a competitive event. I am not sure the details of what this event is, but lets look into it.

Any event that we do, particularly with regards to a ONE day event, as minimum we would need.
Drivers Stand or raised platform of some sort.
Decent tarmac surface to prepare
Track design
Available power for charging and timing equipment
Sufficient time to prepare all of the above.

Outside of that, we can pretty much provide everything else. At a worst case scenario, we dont even need anything as complex as the Automodex track, we can use road domes/plates etc.
If they want a VISUALLY attractive, complete event, we can look at sponsorship money coming in from their event sponsors, and then we can go all out.

Regards

Mister-e,

The road domes will need to be procured by the funds raised from the Dubdrift Membership fees. smile
I would prefer it that way, as then the equipment belongs to US, and not some sponsor.

I am waiting for the final quote to build our Meydan drivers stand extension, and then with the balance, will be ordering 25 of the road domes. ...

Understood.

Just an idea.
Can't it be discussed with the sponsor that it should be purchased with the sponsor money as required investment and that we will take care of it?
The sponsors can put as many stickers as they want on the road dome system.

Hi,
Heres the event -

http://www.funcup.ae/

I had a conversation with the one lady at the Autodrome and have just followed it up with an email outlining what we can do and what we need to do it. So very early stages, but we don't ask for a lot and I recon we can add a lot to an event like this.

I will let you know how it goes and thanks for the previous event info which I have included in my mail.

Duane.

Lance, I had thought the same thing, but obviously that is dependent on how the event is to be staged.....

I see the funcup in Dubai is a 6-hour race......perhaps we should follow the exact same format, starting and finishing at the exact same time.... cool

Hmm, I think that's not such a good idea.
According to my humble opinion, people likes to watch the start and finish of a race. picknose
Then the public will have to choose which start and finish to watch.
Better separate those to maximize the attendance of each of the event.

would be cool to do a mini fun cup! all running beetle shells!

i reckon you could run the same format as for the great mini endurance race (90 min) and stage it during the middle of the funcup when the audience is getting bored with the big car racing!

the other option could be to run 2 sessions (60 min) one mini beetle fun cup and a GT enduro twisted evil

As far as spectator interest is concerned, I would think a series of shorter races like Automodex format would be more entertaining for everyone. People will stay and watch a 5 min race, but completely lost trying to work out what's happening with a enduro.

It was really great to see people clap and cheer at the end of the races at Automodex. Creates a vibe.

Yep.. I think the same format as the Automodex would work better than an Enduro Cup..

With 4WD/2WD Touring and Drifting on the side to offer a different scene. very happy

you have a point there greg!

i suppose you could do a couple of short demo races in different classes and have some drifting - but i reckon it would still be nice to have a feature event such as the enduro which is more inline with the theme of the day! i think the organizers will be more inclined to have us part of the event if there is some thing closely related!

if the organisers go for idea, maybe they could lone us a LCD for the day, which we could connect the laptop to show the live timings for the enduro event! at least that way people could come and go and easily monitor the race progress - we would just need to slap some numbers on the cars to make it easy!

the problem you are talking about goes for any long event - but i reckon its easily overcome!

anyway lets wait and see if they keen to have us there very happy

I was joking about a 6-hour Race.....you would have to be nuts to take part in that....Although there are two annual 6-hour races I know of....that seem like fun.

The LCD idea ia a good one, but even better than that is a lit scoreboard, which is available from the guy who sells the lap timing gear. It shows the running, competitor names and times etc....very cool... but out of our league....

The Funcup is in Jan, so we have some time to organise.

andy

my thoughts behind the enduro event was 60-90 minutes not 6 hours laughing

6 hours would be hectic - can you imagine the amount of battery packs that would be flying around.....

1 pack runtime +/- 15 min at full pace

24 fully charged pack to complete the 6 hours

granted you could charge as you go but it would still take roughly a hour to charge 1 pack....so you'd still need a minimum 4 packs constantly charging...with no cool down time on the packs..... wilinili

naturally all this multiplied by the amount of competitors.....

i'm having visions of the octopus charging station on bongs car at the one al ain session lol
