Good luck. You will need bundles of it . This town does not support motorsports! I've looked at your videos. Great for participants, but not a spectator sport. Sure not in Colorado Springs. Local newspaper says up to 4000 spectators. Count on
a few dozen, if the weather is great. I've followed auto racing of every sort around the world for 65 years. This one is misplaced!
Jack, thank you for your concerns. We (the organizers) have been fortunate to gain the support from both the PPIHC and the city of Colorado Springs. Although perceptually, it may seem that Colorado Springs doesn't support automotive events, we are working hard to change that. In addition to the tens of thousands of people that fly into the region to watch the Hill Climb, we expect Airstrip Attack to contribute to that overall figure. It's not coincidence that some of the best hotels in the area are almost sold out and are in full support of Speedweek. We will continue to develop relationships with the local community and work hard to provide the best event possible, for both participants and for spectators.
You're absolutely right, TeamRevvolution. Sadly the Springs has a bad history with street racing and the community itself is ofcourse wary. But what you are doing and bringing to them is certainly going to impact the locals opinions. Hopefully this event gains nothing but positive traction! I look forward to coming and seeing this even myself, along with all the auto enthusiasts from the Denver area!
