, Your thoughts are in the right place. I am suggesting that SCCA appeal to Toyota or Kia or Hyundai or what ever company wishes to gain exclusive exposure of that race.
Only problem is that I suspect that Toyota has to buy TV to broadcast something like the Toyota celebrity series. The beauty of SVWC is that it exists, is highly promoted by SV and a manufacturer could sponsor a car with SCCA and get a lot of coverage for the cost of a car that got it's fenders bent on the transporter. I guess the car would be called the SCCA, John MacKechnie, Keith, Bob Jones.............Steve Johnson Toyota.
I also agree whole-heartedly about the rental driver situation and having to have very rich parents, case in point, the young 17 year old that drove in the 24hrs. this year. It is that cycle of being the richest not necessarily the most talented (nothing expressed or implied) I would like to see changed, and like the XFL players there are a ton of drivers who'd pay there own way to the race ECT. just to have an opportunity to drive much less get paid. It is forums such as this that will effect change, not just resigning to the way it is. Thats what being a CLUB member is supposed to be about.
Yup. I agree.
I think it's an cool concept with a million problems to work out, but it could be neat. Of course, any additional ideas are welcome. Feel free to email me.
