Cool Primm Motorsports wants to give away a New WRX!!!

We are currently looking into the legality, legitimacy and probability of holding a product promotion and giving away a New WRX. We still need to make sure we can legally do this and that we can generate the revenue to fund it.

Currently all we know is it will take something on the scale of anywhere from 500 to 1000 participants to generate the revenue.

Also we are taking suggestions on what kind of products members would like to see in this promotion.

Please do not let this thread run out of control.

Sincerely,

Dante Primm

um, little die cast WRX models? that way, if we don't win, at least we can all get a WRX for $10.

Well, seriously speaking, I'd be willing to consider buying a set of pedals or mudflaps or something I suppose.

RALLY-X!!!!... may the best man win! let's see.. 50 dollars an entry per person times 500=25,000 dollars. damn, we're spot on. Can anyone say kansas City? US meet? my car will be coming on a truck... hehe.

but seriously mudplaps or anything around 50 bucks would work (Dante, make SURE you jack up the prices alittle though since this IS for a WRX)

sweet,
bret

We are looking at a product package that will generate about $50K in excess revenue. Half will go to the car (New WRX to give away) the other half will go towards our rally fund. I just wanted to be upfront about all the money and where it will go.

sincerely,

Dante

I like the raffle idea... I'd be in, especialy since I couldn't get a scoobie, and had to settle for a used Honda del Sol VTEC, which I do like, but it isn't a Subaru...

Well it would be very easy to say here is a $100 raffle ticket and we are only selling 500 of them, but the reality of it is that would not be legal. To stay within the legal spectrum we need to supply a product pr package of products and use the profit from the sale of said products to purchase the giveaway car. This must be carried out as a promotion not a contest; contests hold a completely different set of legal rules.

Great idea, a couple of quick points though... 500 participants into 50,000 us is a lot of money per raffle ticket.

I'm concerned you'd have to pay a lot in taxes, so this'd drive the cost up even further (I'm not a tax man, but I've seen prizes being taxed before)

The most likely way is to organize an event like the RallyX mentioned above. It's a bit of a hassle, but if you're talking about a big prize, and big money, you need a big event or a number of smaller events - not just a raffle.

Just my $0.02 (think of it as a deposit on my raffle ticket!)

How about RallyX lessons as the product. Each student gets a ticket for the draw?

How about selling a pack of gum for $100 each? Free raffle ticket included.

Or maybe a Primm Motorsports decal or something..

Set yourself up as a not-for-profit organization, perhaps The Church of Subaru, Primm Chapter.

Or you could open up a branch in Las Vegas or Atlantic City where a strait up raffle would be legal.

Why dont you have a couple packages that one could buy for 150 or something, like F/R strut bars, Brake lines and pads, Intake and plugs and wires, other things like that, so that someone who has some of the items, can choose another package. Then people would be interested in buying, and get the chance to win the WRX as a bonus, instead of just buying anything to get a raffle ticket. You can also have different priced items but they all have the same chance of winning, to keep it fair. If so, ill take the Brakes package...

Im a buyer for a manufacturing company and I own a jewelry company. I have a good idea of what it takes to create that kind of revenue.

Have you thought about promotional pricing from your suppliers? I get from 50% to 100% off on partnership promotions. If youre trying to raise money through a promotional sale, i.e., product line, OMP, Corbeau, AP, etc., may be willing to give you special pricing. They may also be able to provide expert advice on their best selling products. That will allow you to lower the prices for increased sales or keep them as is for higher profit (reduced is better). On the down side, you may be required to offer chances to win with no purchase necessary.

The raffle may be a viable option. The down side is that it doesnt really promote a product line. Tickets are sold as stand-alone. No products get sold.

Your lawyers can best tell you what you can do from the legal perspective. As a purchasing professional, I strongly recommend that you pursue the manufacturer partnership promotion. This will help promote your corporate identity and generate long term sales.

Personally, looking at your line of products, Im interested in what you carry that is relative to my street performance and what you have that supports SOLO I and SOLO II. For example, since you offer Corbeau competition seats on a special order basis, why not offer the whole line so people like me who drive every day can compromise with the A4?
