Apex Cycle of Waterloo and KTM Canada presents the 2011 CMRC Ontario Provincial Championship Motocross and final Amateur National Qualifier (ANQ) on Saturday June 18 and Sunday June 19 at Walton Raceway. www.waltonraceway.ca
1. We can control expenses (we do that)
2. We can cut corners to save money (we refuse to offer less than the best race experience so we won't do that)
3. We can attract sponsors by offering marketing value to them (Battlefield, Apex Cycles, Parts Canada, Scott Sports and KTM are great examples where we have done that)
4. We can attract paying spectators by letting them know the event is on and that motocross is the BEST SPORT IN THE WORLD!! (we do that with radio campaigns, print, posters, Internet , email, etc)
And you can do stuff too…. When you attract a new spectator to show up it goes directly into making the event and the venue more viable AND adds greater value to sponsors (they love to see spectators) which means they will re-invest and maybe even increase their support to you and us. All of this means that we can all benefit from the best spectator turnout possible.
Even if you only have ONE friend … try Facebooking, twittering, IMing, texting, calling, emailing, poking, .. whatever … you get the idea, and tell them about the Apex Cycle Double Header this weekend. Our sport is spectacular, Walton Raceway looks amazing, our toilets are clean and we promise to pounce on the nearest puff of dust, so get those invitations out!!
This event is the final Amateur National Qualifier (ANQ) for the southwestern Ontario region of CMRC (Canadian Cycle Racing Club). Success at the ANQs is critical for riders wanting to participate in the August 15-21 Parts Canada TransCan GNC at Walton Raceway.
The Grand National Championship is a limited entry event which only accepts riders from across the country who have demonstrated their ability by placing in the top ranks of their respective regional qualifiers. In Southwestern Ontario only the top 11 riders in each class qualifier are guaranteed a starting gate position at the TransCan! More can get in, space permitting, but only the top 11 know for sure.
The support of Apex Cycle of Waterloo and KTM has enabled us to offer the two day format which results in longer motos and better track maintenance so visit Apex Cycle to give them some props. For the past 7 years the Walton Double Header in June has seen the biggest rider entry of any event in the country. Not only that, but with so much at stake, it attracts competitors from neighbouring states and provinces for some of the most intense battles and spectacular displays of skill you will see short of the August TransCan.
If you own a Traxxis RC Car, be sure to bring it as there will be RC Car races on a specially built Traxxis track throughout the weekend. Camping will be available on Friday so get there early to reserve your favourite spot in the pits. Summer looks to be finally here so grab some sunscreen and a comfy lawn chair and come celebrate the start of summer with us!
