For the record, I would like to fail your post twice. First to show that I would not pay to see your dumb car show and second because this post is such an epic fail.

Maybe DTP will make a comeback this year now that BC Place is up and running again?

the shows here are completely backwards to what they should be,

either make it a party with chicks and booze everywhere,

or make it so the cars are actually raced and not show-only, with 50 tv's in there.

in Van, our shows consist of, no booze, no girls, lots of TV's.

it fucking sucks

Sad truth is that most of these shows LOSE more money than anything.
Then you have to make sure the vendors and shops are treated correctly. In most cases, the turnout will suck and everything shits the bed. This isn't like a Comic Con in which it could be a family event and where more people will turn up.

Do people really care for these shows? Thats the real question to ask
Will I go? sure, if I get press pass like DTP last year

The police will give you plenty of +1s and have VI checkpoints outside the venue.

I guess we will hafto agree to disagree,

when I went to HIN few years, there were porn stars, and DJ's and even lil john showed up and performed, and the crowd was fuckin nuts! There was even a bikini contest. And the place was completely packed and sold out,

whereas our shows lose tons of money and cant get any reasonable celebraties or import models and no one shows up,

get the difference?

why would I pay 20 dollars to see cars that i've already seen at an RS meet?

Id rather pay 20 bucks to see them in a drifting, drag, road course event,
or pay 20 bucks to have a massive party where all those TV's and subwoofers can be put to some use.


fuck, id even pay 50 bucks if the summer RS meet was at mission, and we had the track reserved all day for us, thatd be way better!

$10,000 Revscene meet or we could just have a meet on a regular street legal night and pay the standard admission rates.

I'd feel bad for the dedicated racers on a night where a group of RSers came out and destroyed the track, but ultimately there's nothing preventing a meet on a street legal night. There would be more, and better, cars to watch run down the strip as well.
