FEEDBACK ARTICLE: THE IHRA COMMUNITY WEIGHS IN ON THE 2010 RACE FORMAT
Quote from article:
“I think it will be a great show for the novice spectator. The purist race spectators will have to take some time to warm up to it. From a novice fan that hears it advertised on the radio and wants to see fast cars and a lot of noise, they’ll be entertained with. For the purist, I just don’t know how they’re going to take it. We’ll develop a new audience. The diehard fans are not going to have a lot of enthusiasm. The average one-to-two race a year fan that doesn’t follow the sport will be entertained.”
Who do they think is effected by the economy? Are they stupid?
Do they even know or studied there customer base?
The Novice spectator are the very people not coming to the track. In this economy do you think the novise is going to spend the money? Come on guys, this is not rocket ecomonics.
You making changes to cut cost for the novice spectator, the very spectator that will have no money and will not attend. Those very spectators will spend their hard money somewhere else. And in the process you totally destroy your fan base. The ones who make
sacrifices to make sure this is the one part of there life they will not miss.
JUST HOW STUPID CAN YOU GET?????????????
NASCAR has seen the same mistake. changes over the years have made their original fan base mad as hell. Now they want them back. Because the fair weather novice fans spend their money on something else.
But what do I know?
I know what drag races will not see my money!
I'm a fan, a doorslammer fan. The very roots of what IHRA has been about. THE VERY FOUNDATION! - Al Smith
