Me, I wasn't going to enter but I was going to support it as a spectator. The last time I went there was when clubveedub ran the event, then as Dave said they screwed us.

Ay Col. Stop being a dick!!!! You got disqualified at warwick and now you got a bee in your bonnet. Just the same as when you were ringing around the other week digging for info!!!
THE EVENT IS NOT ON!!!Everyone needs to get over it!!!no amount of questioning or answers will make it not not on!! Go back to whatever you do for the other 364 days of the year and let Craig get on with organising Warwick.

Unbelievable - as Jim Richards once said (or close to it) "What a pack of assholes" questioning Craig's intergrity - be careful not to shoot yourselves in the foot and end up with no event at all.
Many people who drag race don't even bother being on this forum - now I know why. I'd say what a bunch of women, but I don't want to insult women.

Could it be that this is nothing more than a business decision, after all, the event is based on business, only driven by passion. Are we getting too emotional about the outcome between a promoter and a venue, if there is no money to be made then its just not viable. Its not a charity, businesses need to make profit, if the promoter can't make profit then it stops.

Its just another perspective.

For example the word sponsor is just a marketing term, these people pay for advertising and their accountant uses it as a business expense. The whole thing is a money making exercise, if it wasn't these events wouldn't happen just the same as music festivals.

We may never know what happened between the two parties because its their business, regardless of what one says there is always two sides, again none of our business, bad business decisions are made everyday and if this is the outcome of one of those, then so be it. The promoter is the one who negotiated and made the final decision, we have no say its his event.
