Can you imagine a showdown with all Boosted IS300? I'd fly out to see that.. charge admission to see it, have the performance pay to set up booths, Everything IS300 related..
Have each major IS300 compan player fork over a sum for the purse. Then have the boosted IS300 just go at it, 1/4 mile.

Damn that would be awesome..

would you also be willing to pay the travel expenses for EACH boosted IS to get to their desired location??
Its like any competion, there would be some sort of entry fee. I didn't say I'd sponsor it, I'd fly out to see it..

That would be sweet, but that is a long ways for ppl to get to, considering most boosted IS's are located in the midwest or East coast SEMA being in Vegas would be a trek in a half for most ppl. So if that were to happen I am sure most ppl would want to ship the car there, then there would need to be somesort of transport, and a lot of planning would need to go into it... A LOT.


But if enough intrest I would be up for that.

Yeah.. we can ship all the East Coast Boosted cars to .. ahem 'San Diego, CA' at my .. ahem... garage .. yeah thats it.. :D
Well, I have a vacation time in Vegas, at the end of the strip, WorldMark. If enough people would be interested, I'll look into getting a few rooms, maybe a Penthouse, etc..

It would be best to be in the area of the most boosted IS's which of course is the mid atlantic, b/c PFS/SRT/TBKO are all within an hour of eachother. SEMA would be sweet but after spending all my dough for boosting my IS, I'm poor!

There are around 20 or so in the northeast alone, and a few in FL

I will talk to Vision Entertainment. These guys are instrumental at securing venues, they will want a big cut of entry fees though...

I suggest a summer "Tour" if you will, see how this goes and then have a bigger event at SEMA '04.

Hell, even let us soon to be boosted folk in!

I spoke to a co-worker of mine who is a member of the Porsche Club of America (North East Chapter) He was interested in running my "TURBO IS" - TSopranoMB :roll: before my turbo deal fell thru, last summer.

He is still interested in a friendly race of course with a group of F/I IS300's vs Porsche at Watkin's Glen raceway near Elmira NY.

He said that it would cost a lot of money but would be a fun weekend activity to rent out the track and run some cars head to head GT Cup style (No 1/4 mile Bullshit) After we have the manditory training & video and assuming drivers bring a legal helmet and gear etc, etc.

IT would probably be about $1200-$1500 per driver depending on if we get a good turnout. We are still working out details and Lexotic's boost schedules to plan the activity.

This would be a great early next spring meet. I'll be ready to take down a couple porsche's then.
