I have some questions for Mr. Todd James and the RPM Racing League and or RPM Motorsports.
Posted May 4, 2009 by Speed Teacher
We are planning on building a dedicated autocross
facility near Fort Wayne. In order to raise capital we are starting a
'buy a brick' campaign. The bricks will be used to build our "Victory
Lane" area, which will be a nice centerpiece for our facility. The
facility will have autocross-type activities throughout the year.
So, what's it take to win an Evo?
have 50 spots available for people to sell bricks. The bricks are
engraved and cost $125 and can be paid all at once, or $25 per month
for five months. The top three people who sell the most bricks will get
an Evo (around $17k to $18k value). We must hit sales targets in order
to win. For anyone interested, I can explain how it works in more
I am also committed to helping anyone who wants it. I will
help give you the best strategy to sell the most bricks. I just started
and I have been pretty successful so far.
There is also a cash
bonus ($300 maybe) for anyone who sells more bricks than I do. Just to
make things interesting and keep me on my toes.
If you are
interested in being on of the 50 people in this competition, let me
know asap. I opened up the sign-up today and have 10 people already
committed. I expect the 50 spots will be full by the end next weekend.
The contest officially starts on 5/18 and will last for 20 weeks.
If you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to ask.
will be at the Winged Warrior event on Saturday, May 9th if you want to
stop by and help support Riley Children's Hospital. All proceeds go to
the Riley Cheer Guild. It is a fantastic organization.
Thank you for your time,
Director of Marketing
First Question....... Who are the 10 people already committed and how may i contact them?
2.) Is the RPM Racing League a business or an idea? Does it have a Federal Tax ID Number?
3.) If I or someone else 'buy a brick', where does this money go?
4.) Do you or the business have 3 EVO's to give away to the top 3 sellers?
5.) Who are the current top 3 sellers? How do you keep track of sales and how much money has been raised?
6.) According to the website at http://www.rpmchallengeusa.com/main..._home.html" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://www.rpmchallengeusa.com/main..._home.html the 2009 season started in March, have i missed out on the first event? Why is the schedule not posted yet?
7.) According to the website at http://www.rpmchallengeusa.com/main..._home.html" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://www.rpmchallengeusa.com/main..._home.html Tristan Criss won a full day race package in the EVO 8, how can I win this package and may I contact Mr. Criss for details about his experience?
8.) Are all the events taking place at the Kruse Auction Park, and who may i contact at Kruse for details about this?
9.) If you are building a site, where will it be located? Who will run the events? When will it be completed? Who is providing the insurance?
10.) How many Mazda3's or Corvettes does the business own currently for use in the program?
11.) If I "Reserve a spot" for myself or my team, how many events am I or we guarenteed to participate in?
12.) What happens if there are no events this year? Or if the events number fewer than promised? Do I get my money back or a refund?
13.) Do I get a receipt or a written contract after buying a brick, or paying for a spot in the league?
14.) Is there a minimum amount of bricks I must sell to win an EVO, or do i just need to be in the top 3?
15.) Do you provide the bricks for sale or do I do that on my own? If you are providing the bricks, where do they come from and how much do they cost?
16.) Who is engraving the bricks? Is there an additional cost for engraving and may I contact that company for verification?
17.) Why am I being asked to raise money for the business? Wouldn't seeking a business loan from a bank make more sense?
18.) If I invest in RPM Racing League or RPM Motorsports, does that make me part owner and what rights and privileges does that provide me?
19.) What are the benifits to joining this league as opposed to just running SCCA events?
20.) Is the RPM Racing League registered with the Better Business Bureau and where can I find more information about RPM other than the website?
It is my opinion that there are some serious questions that need to be answered publically concerning the the RPM Racing League. It is my goal with these questions to find out more about the RPM Racing League and to make sure that people are recieving what they are asked to pay for with their money. I have no intent to discredit the intentions of the RPM Racing League or Mr. Todd James, however when being asked to invest in something, the details should be public and crystal clear. I hope all these questions will be answered publically and in a timely manner.
