    Do you guys follow up on people who have previously registered and are no longer members? Might be worth gauging opinions of people that have done car club, but no longer do it due to whatever reasons?

    that's exactly how I feel - racers and ricers are two different breeds and you can lead a horse to water etc...........

    You need to target people that havnt gone down a path yet, maybe put leaflets at the test centre or something, claiming its a great way to improve car control and safety or some such

    Getting pumped up nippers who have just passed their test would be a good shout actually. They'll quickly realise they know fuck all about handling a car and would hopefully prove to be a good learning experience for them, as well as steering them on the right path away from ricing!

    Because I'm a boring cunt and I love the club so much I did some stats:



    Top graph shows how many members have competed in at least 1 championship round for that season along with how many rounds that season had.

    The 2nd graphs comes from a chat with Ryan about a feeling I had that in the past there was a greater amount of competition. It shows the average % of rounds completed by the top 10, 20 and total field. I think if we could get the top 20 competing over 90% of the rounds again tat would be great.

    Data available to the committee should you wish to discuss or if you want some other figures looking at.
