I don't know what car clubs are going to do, they are dying! Full of old grey headed people (Me included) they need some new blood. BUT HOW?
We should start a survey here on what thoughts are on how to improve the situation and attract new blood.
I have found that most of the better performing clubs carry out a fair amount of club level/type motorsport, however even these clubs appear to be faltering. I attended round 6 of the NSW State Motorkhana series last Sunday week. Run by the Mini car club (One of the better performing clubs that I know (Yes I am also a member of this club as well as Peugeot). The event only attracted 19 starters (13 entrants from the Mini club), in years gone by we would have had 35 to 40 starters at least.
I bet if you could text as you competed in a motorkhana test we would get more starters!
Most clubs these days are doing a lot of multi-day drives around in the bush and weekday events. This is good but how can the young people compete?
Anyone want to comment (With constructive criticism) on how to attract new blood and improve our car club's futures? Or is it too late????
