We need a slogan for the race club so we are having a contest to help us decide.

We will put this slogan on shirts and other items but the shirts are first so I will talk a bit about them. This slogan will appear on shirts first but should not be specific to just a shirt in case we want to use it elsewhere. For example on the back of a shirt you might say, “If you can read this I’m winning” but that would make no sense on a coffee mug and neither would “ TEAM VK56 won the race and all I got was this shirt”

Don’t focus on the Club logo either because that will go on the left shirtsleeve or the left front chest in a small 2 or 3” format as the club identifier. The shirts may end up having TEAM VK56 on the front or back as well as the slogan but this contest is just for the slogan alone and nothing else. The print colors have been worked out already as well and they are red, gray and black and the shirts themselves will be white, black or gray. We will have a design contest following the slogan contest to decide parts of the overall shirt design but this contest is just for the slogan.

Here are the rules:

1. No profanity or variation of anything that could be considered profane. For example “My headers have tough nuts” or “How do you like my engine hose” would not be acceptable. Use your imaginations but keep it ultra clean, this is to be a family friendly slogan.

2. Try to keep it short, no one wants to read War and Peace off of a shirt or anything else.

3. No race type or vehicle references allowed. For example, “Titans rule” or “Follow me to the drag strip” will not be acceptable. It’s all about the engine and not the type of racing or the Titan in specific.

4. Anyone can participate, you do not have to be a member of the club yet.

5. You are allowed to take someone else’s slogan and modify it. For example, if you saw “The VK56 rules the races”, you could change it to “The VK56 rules”.

Just submit your slogan in this thread and if you like a slogan or two, quote it in a post and tell us you like it. We will have to narrow it down to three or four for voting but in the mean time we just want to see where this goes and are going to give it a week before we start voting. The voting will then run for another week and after we have a slogan we will start the graphic design portion of the contest.

Have fun with it, you have at least one week to give it your best shot.

This was posted on another site.



Shift_Happens

This is very clever and on the ragged edge of the rules posted but since it doesn't refer to a part of the human anatomy, we will allow it and I want a shirt, lol.

The club chiefs have been releasing information as fast as we can but we didn't expect the large response we are getting and we are way behind. The only information available right now is in the racing sub forum, just change your settings so that you can read farther back through the threads.

I will add a couple of things that seem to be of concern and I will leave it at that until we can post the club duties and hierarchy. the people who founded this club live to go fast and have fun, that's what we are about and that's as simply as I can put it. Someone posed the question "Are you guys just going to bench race?" Uh....no. As I write this, we are looking into sponsorship for club drivers and we will hold racing events when and where we can.

I personally live to go to the strip and I don't mean clubs, lol. I also can't elaborate on some of the R&D for engine parts going on right now but that is exciting as well and people will find out in due time.

This club is about getting people together who want to race and support racing the VK56 engine in all it's forms. If they stick this engine in a plane and race it, we will support it. If they put this engine in a Yugo and race it, we will support that as well. There is strength in numbers when it comes to doing anything and getting things done for us and that's what the club is for.

We want to race the VK56 and support it and need a lot of help to do it properly. You may have noticed that you really can't officially sign up for the club right now. We are in the process of obtaining a secure server for member information and won't sign anyone up until we have it because we want the member data to be secure. We will not have an official web site for getting together on line, that's what the forums are for. This sub forum is our pit stall and the forums are our pits. In the mean time we have designated a few individuals as Pit Crew Chiefs to get things rolling but there is really no official way to sign up new members yet. If anyone is interested in being a Pit representative, they can send me or one of the Pit Crew Chiefs a PM stating as much and we will make them Pit Crew members. Also if anyone is interested in being a Statistical Crew Chief here in the pits, PM me as well.

Thank you for the interest in the club and keep watching the racing forum for up to date information, we are just getting started and this is going to be fun.

"Perfect, who came up with that one? Is that the final slogan?"

This one's getting some love on another forum. I don't know about the rest of you but I was born to compete and I think the fact that we are always calling our victories "kills" and saying we had a Hemi for lunch and a Catfish for dinner makes us all predators, lol. I also think it opens up a lot of graphics possibilities, claw marks, teeth and so on.

it just came to me yesterday when I was reading this thread... :lol:
We need to think of something a bit more mainstream because this slogan will end up on professional race team vehicles as well our shirts. Funny as some of these slogans are, race teams likely won't want to put stuff like "You've been Jap slapped" or "Cannibalism. We eat rice." on their vehicles for fear of offending their sponsors.
