Somerset 2018

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the Info

I knew changeover day was friday/Saturday. So in the past it would be a problem, but now maybe the promotions work in that area may bring some rewards. In reality with the World Champion and a great racetrack you would think people would be flocking in.

IMO even though it is obviously for team building purposes Swindon are mad not to use him. A Town like Swindon with a World Champion   in the team should be packing them in.

At least they'e trying which is far more than some promotions do.

It’s a great idea to promote to the holiday makers, but there are still people living in Somerset who have no idea the track is there. Surely these are the people the promotion should be targeting.

I' sure they'e tried and tried but it hasn' worked. So trying the transients is the next best option. To be fair the track is out in the middle of nowhere so to speak. I can only think of Cradley and ourselves(Oxford) that were tracks with a lot of fans within walking distance of the track. Obviously upto the late 60s tracks did attract a far more local home crowd.

The promoters need to work on both people who live in Somerset and during the summer all the holiday resorts with info in what to do leaflets and mags and whats on mags with discounts etc. in the holiday camps, hotels etc.

That is good, and as has been mentioned a change of night from fri may help.
