Guys... it's a show...calm down.... even though some cars look like ASSSSSSSSS to you and I... to a score sheet, they get the numbers needed to win.... that's what a show is..not personal taste, points.... plain and simple..

I like the mosport show as well... as I did say before.... but... you can't please everyone.

Randy,

if you do a change next year.... make a sign, on a pole or something for each class so everyone parks together.... if it was mosport, for example... more room needed, just move a sign and cars.. in a parking lot, you are more restricted for space..... the grass makes for better pics too...

also...

coke zero suks... get diet for us fat falkers! ( yes... you mr. 225lbs )

LOL i was thinking the same thing. Show was great but 1 washroom, C'MON!!

LOL! Randy started getting annoyed with this guy blurting out comments during the trophy ceremony. That shit was jokes "hey do you just want the mic cause you won't shut up!" classic shit Randy.

I knew I wouldn't win anything but I paid the $20 to support a great show and all that. I'll definitely be at the next one and if any help is needed in organizing it, give me a hollar.

Nice event, good job. Had a chance to compete and made it to Jack Astor's afterwards (I wish more people showed up!).

Looking forward to next year. Here is some feedback:

- My wife and kids were getting weary towards the end of the day, the awards were given out 1 1/2 hours behind schedule. With no more food and limited amusements... so they called off the cruise and I drove them home. Had we left on time at 5PM I think they would have enjoyed it. We cruise all the time and attend meets but 7 hours in a parking lot in the Sun took its toll.
Next time bring out ice cream freezer, a slushy machine and catered coffee and you would have a hit.
- I try to keep my car mint, and have moderate but tasteful upgrades. I wish I was advised which catagory to compete in, as I found out later that there were M3's in the E46 mild catagory (M3's aren't mild by any stretch). I should have entered "luxury" or "misc" catagory - I had the only Touring at the event! At least I had some attention and questions from passers-by.

thanks

Appologies for the late trophy ceremony... seems like every year it happens, no matter what I do to correct the problem. This time, it was shear numbers. The judges had a hard time finishing before 4pm. Many competitors locked their cars (after being told not to), only to complain they weren't judged after 5pm!
Next year it looks like I will have to add more classes yet again. ///M cars will be seperated from nom///M, which will help those like yourself. This is great feedback guys, keep it coming... just don't repeat what i've already explained.

Got some more ideas for the show:

SPL Competition
SQ Competition

There's a lot of audiophillies out there.

Specialty awards, when you register for your car, you should be able to register for 2 additional specialty awards, e.g: concourse and best paint, or smething like that. This way the judges don't actually have to go searching through all the cars to find them.


I like the idea of additional categories for M cars, but are you gonna do best m3/M5/M6? Additional 3 series classes are always welcome because there are so many of them, but not so much for the other series'.

Great show Randy! The Dyno was a great touch. Location was good, I mean who would have thought that it would get THAT crazy. I mean, this is getting bigger year after year. Also the cayuga idea is great. Plenty of room and some place to have fun with your modded cars on the drag/lapping. Also adding the M-cars for a seperate class would be a great idea. Beacause a E30 M3 for example has way more of an advantage over a 318is. Had a blast, will help out again next year! Oh btw Randy I have one of your FRS's.

Yes and no, it seems that ///M cars do not always get all the points a non M with M parts gets, because they are considered as upgrades to the non-m car. Or at least that's how I think it works. I might be wrong though.(maybe Randy can shine some light on that)

Judging is hard with soo many vehicles. It is really nice to see some people come out with cars that we do not get to see regularly.

The icecream idea was a good one.

The Mild/Wild cathegory has to do with the level of modifications done to the car. Gary's orange monster (although non-M) is not the same as stock M3 (that does belong in a mild class!)...

It does make sens that the stock M cars are judged for what they are, not for smothing special if they were build that way from the factory...A 318 with ///M motor swap, brakes, interior, suspention etc shows a LOT more effort (and wins points) then a stock M3...

all in all the show was well done, Randy does a tremendous job. next year i'm sure people like myself are willing to help out in any way possible. the one thing i say to Randy every year is i would like to see bimmercruise in the summer, but really that, like the food issue is nitpicking.

A pet peeves i noticed at the show... idiots doing burnouts while leaving the parking lot.. seriously, you're one wrong move away from hitting a parked car and being all over youtube as the next moron that can't drive. All it takes is one guy to make a mistake and shut down the whole show (cops are just waiting for a reason).
