Thinking about setting up a drag race for manual street cars. Who would be interested

I've been wanting to organize a drag race for manual cars. This would be something targeted towards street cars and to give us stick drivers some drag racing fun. I still need to talk to the ABQ Dragway but trying to get some ideas. Here is what I have so far.

I want to leave the classes open to attract a good car count, but with enough interest maybe add some classes.

3 Classes to start

15-16 inch tire class, this will be for cars more setup for drag racing. Slicks and radials allowed. If the car count is right maybe a slick and a radial class.

17+ inch tires. If there is a good turn out maybe do a 275 and smaller class and a 285 and larger. Drag radials and street tires allowed.

Finally an AWD class. No restrictions on tire size or type. I would let them run in the other classes but I think they would have to much of an advantage in the 17+ class.

Make it an 1/8 mile race so people are not slaves to NHRA strict 1/4 mile rules and safety equipment required.

Pro tree

Buy ins of no more than $50, possibly less depending on what people are comfortable with.

Maybe have a mandatory drive to the track, not so much to prove the street worthiness but it would be fun to meet up and drive out together.

All manually shifted transmissions operated with a clutch in every gear.

What do you guys think? Who would be interested?

It would be at the track. He was thinking about doing 1/8th mile because the track would be more lenient with safety stuff.

My opinon, "classes" and rules are what always seem to kill these types of series. I would suggest setting up a street car true stick shift class and leave it at that. That's the only way I see the event getting a decent car count.
