We all want to keep racing affordable, right? INVITE A FRIEND to this
event. There are a couple of things we as track operators do in order
to make racing more affordable for you the rider.
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, Two Wheel Motorsports, Parts Canada, Scott Sports and
Kawasaki 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 us and you. All of this means that we can all benefit
from the best spectator turnout possible.
*Even if you only have ONE friend* … try Facebooking, IMing,
texting, calling, emailing, poking, .. whatever … you get the idea,
and tell them about the Two Wheel Motorsport 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 Motorsport Racing Club).
Success at the ANQs is critical for riders wanting to participate in
the August 11-15 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
*The support of Two Wheel Motorsport of Guelph and Kawasaki has
enabled us to offer the two day format which results in longer motos
and better track maintenance so visit Graeme and Ron to give them some
props*. For the past 6 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
So grab some sunscreen and a comfy lawn chair and come celebrate the
start of summer with us!
