Bimmercruise 2007 summary

I'd like to thank everyone for coming out today, we had a great turn out considering the terrible weather in Toronto. Luckily we didn't see any rain up at Mosport all day. I'm sure attendance would have been better if Toronto's weather looked nicer.

I'd also like to thanks all our sponsors for supporting us in 2007... without them, Bimmercruise wouldn't be possible.

A big shout out to the awesome staff that came through, even when the day looked like it was going to be a bad one. You guys are invaluable!

Running the show is always a learning experience.... the following improvements are noted for next year:

-June event
-more classes (trophies)
-online (pre)registration
-more entertainment (Live DJ, more models, mobile dyno)
-paved parking lot
-More staff at front entrance (with more pens)

... any other suggestions guys?? I'm taking notes!

You can always use some more cowbell!



Thanks for putting on a great show as always! DJ sounds like a good idea, and preregistration would definitely help expediting the judging process.

Even though this was a minor problem (considering the quantity of cars), I think there is a need for stricter enforcement of speeding on mosport grounds.

Also, a BBQ would make it easier for everyone to grab food (and not wait in a 30 min lineup).

There doesn't seem to be anything that can be done for idiots that don't listen. Example: minutes after asking (during the awards ceremony) everyone to depart slowly , sure enough.. some a$$hole has to peel out down the road while leaving.

I can't have food at the event because it conflicts with the sales at Mosport's Restaurant. Unfortunately, lines are a fact of life.

Ahh, fair enough. I figured that the food issue would infringe on Mosport's restaurant (AKA grease pit).

As for the idiots, it's hard to keep them all down, and it's pretty damn shitty that a few bad apples will spoil it for everyone.

greta event once again Randy, and congrats to the winners! Despite the weather it was great to see all the people who came out regardless and had their rides still looking great even though the roads got them dirty on the way up.

Great event... Better weather would have been nice, but all in all, a very-well organized and entertaining day.

I think the awards amount is good, but maybe add a sound competition. SPL and SQ?
