Thanks for the post.   Our alexa rankings are down considerably from 7 years ago, but so are all racing sites.   We still get 6-7,000 unique hits a day (it probably will go to 10,000 by June, but nowadays 25-35% of the hits are from foreign countries (spam attempts).


I think there are various reasons for some decline you notice:
1) We no longer allow any free ads... The truth is it took to much of my time to post ads and monitor them.

2) Younger people use Snapchat, Instagram, etc... Hell, they don't even use FaceBook anymore, and much of the RaceRap audience have grown older and I would say over 50% of them are no longer interested in racing at any level.

3) This is an old site:   NOT IPHONE friendly.   Many people only use smart phones only

4) Yes, racing as a whole has lost it's enthusiasm..   Most of the people I know today barely care about racing.

We have needed to upgrade RaceRap for a long time. We haven't.
Our business is making paint, and we have grown so much in our paint business, we have little time to devote the time we use to.   Sad (not for my pocketbook) but true.

Tamco Paint has grown so much over the last 5 years.   We have some of the most prestigious people using our paint.   Jesse James last 2 bikes, Rick "The arsonist" Bacon, Diel Airbrush (basically every goalie in the NHL helmets are done with our products) Cory St Clair (Cory St Clair has been airbrush for close to 30 years. He has been honored to work along side some of the best airbrush artist in the world.)... Pepsi, Coke, Titan America and many numerous customers that take much of our time.

Hopefully I can do something about upgrading the site, but honestly, I need help from others.....
