There are good car shows and there are bad car shows. Sometimes it’s poor organization. Sometimes it’s the weather. There are any number of reasons for a poor turnout at an event.
Of all the car events MontrealRacing.com has covered over the past two decades, one stands out as being the worst. That event was…..OUR OWN SHOW LOL.
In 2005 MontrealRacing.com organized a Dyno Day/Meet at Autodrome St-Eustache. Actually, it wasn’t even inside the track but rather in the parking lot and inside Trac Racing. A total of about ten cars showed up and several were friends and family. Basically, everyone who showed up got some sort of trophy.
It was an embarrassing first attempt at organizing a car show. But you know what? If you don’t fail, you don’t learn anything. This was a valuable learning experience.
