Hey guys. I recently came across your site and thought I could get some advice. I will be bringing a 22ft Die cast track to Central Pennsylvania Collector Con August 2nd through 4th. I will be running tournaments during the convention and afterwards in the hotel for the after hours folks. I have never been to an event like this or seen die cast racing at an event. Do any of you have experience at an event like this and could tell me how it typically goes?
For daytime hours I am picturing just having a seclection of standard production hot wheels cars that people either pick or are randomly selected when each person signs up. I am thinking 30-50 cars in each tournament, 3 or 4 tournaments a day, with fun little prizes for the top winners. One of the tournaments would be for ages 10 and under and the rest would be for all ages.
For evening time I was thinking people could bring their own cars to race and maybe have a small buy-in tournament that pays out the top three places. For this one I figured I would follow some of the tournament entry guidlines you guys have here.
Any thoughts or advice? Any of you planning to go to this event?
