Pole Position- SpeedSF's Patrick Chio

Date

December 17, 2015 by Jennifer Ghidinelli

Patrick_Chio.jpgThe San Francisco Bay Area is chock full of motorsport enthusiasts which makes for a large, but competitive market for event organizers. You'll find all of the marque car clubs, the major club racing organizations and quite a few do-it-yourselfers. But Patrick Chio and his team at SpeedSF somehow manage to cut through the noise and run very successful HPDE and Time Trial programs.

Patrick first grabbed our attention with his awesome promotional emails. Great images, a clear, concise message, and simple design really made them stand out. And they're effective- a lot of the run groups sell out and SpeedSF has gone from hosting 4 events when they first started with MotorsportReg in 2013 to hosting 22 events in 2015! I asked Patrick to share the secrets to his success in this uber competitive market.

Date

October 21, 2015 by Katie Moosman

Volunteers are the unsung heroes of our events. They join us unpaid and at the crack of dawn all for the love of motorsports and this incredible community we're a part of. Let's give a hats off to these wonderful folks and start making their lives (and yours) a little easier with online registration. 

Many of our organizers have brought their volunteer programs online and joining us this year with several big volunteer events was Circuit of the Americas. They recently wrapped up their first event for the Lone Star LeMans with over 300 volunteers and are getting ready for this weekend's Formula 1 race. To see how you can use MotorsportReg.com to register your volunteers online, check out how we structured their event below.

Let us help!

Back in 2013 we added a few new additions to our email lists and posted this opt-in box in a few places in MotorsportReg.

Email_Lists

We're using these lists to directly help our organizers and participants. Over the last year these lists have grown like crazy! And more of our organizers are taking advantage of them and seeing great results.

Last minute track specials- 27,000 subscribers!

This list is specifically for attendees looking for a good deal on track time. It can be used by organizers on our Premium plan offering a last minute discount on open track days or HPDEs. We send it to everyone within 300 miles of the venue and generally reach 3,000 to 4,000 people. Below are some of the actual results after sending out an email blast:

Feature Updates - August 2015

Date

August 26, 2015 by Brian Ghidinelli

This week I'm near Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin - not to attend an event at Road America (drats!) - but rather for our annual team meetup in Lake Geneva. As a fully remote team we find a late summer week to bring the team together, review our progress and refine our plan for the future. It's a chance to replace phone calls and emoji with face-to-face conversations and meals that leaves us energized to keep pushing forward.

Last month I listed a number of improvements for my programmer friends but I'm back with a larger-than-normal list of improvements and fixes to MotorsportReg, including a sneak peek at a major new feature.
