If you're planning an event where car enthusiasts will be in attendance, ask yourself-are you and your organizers knowledgeable about the sorts of cars-and owners-that will be present?
Are you moving your event further up-market-attracting larger sponsors, better-quality cars, perhaps turning what was a day into an entire lifestyle weekend based around cars that count, not just counting cars-and looking for another degree of sophistication to achieve one or more of those ends?
