Help Found Race Simulator Event Space Business

41491680_156643504317047_r.jpegBack in 2009 when I could not find a job, I attempted to create my own job. I started off setting up a Digital Slot Car Race Track at birthdays and corporate events, money from that (and a few jobs I've had since 2009), have been invested back in to purchase and build the Race Simulator Trailer.

During the winter months it all gets put in storage. Instead of doing that, I searched and found some temporary retail space in  Holly Michigan to set up for the winter, as an experiment to see if a stationary location would work better than the mobile trailer setup.

I only have a few hundred dollars right now, so I cannot really afford to lease space.
So I started this gofundme to raise funds to pay the lease on this experimental space.

If this is a success, then Virtual Raceways will either stay in the space leased, or find another permanent location in the area.

The space will be available for Birthday, School, Troop, Church, and Company parties.
It cold also serve as an eSports arena, using my race simulators, or players can bring their own machines.

Drivers can walk-in and race, pending the space being used for events.
$5.00 - about 10 minutes
$? More pricing plans for more time, groups, weekly, monthly, yearly, life passes?!

Every WED, FRI, SAT will be a points race tournament, to win $100 cash.
$10 per points race

The last day of every month will be a final Tournament with the top 10 points drivers that month racing for $1000 cash.
This will happen November, December, January, February, & March -- after that, we will see if Virtual Raceways stays put, moves, or quits.

This fundraiser is also a way for me go gauge the level of interest and support I may get from would be customers.

Every Dollar donated in this GoFundMe, will be good for $2.00 in the race facility.
(Excluding Entry Fees to races with prizes)

First week I have it running, contributors can come race for free, even if its just a Dollar.

If funds go past the goal, I will spend it on separate computers for each cockpit, so they are not sharing computers, this will allow me to run any game or simulator on the cockpits, not just Live For Speed. I can also paint and build out the space. I can also add other game machines to the space.

If it does not happen, then every dollar will be refunded by GoFundMe.
