I went to the snowbirds this year and managed all my stuff in in one bag.
Too ship your stuff one way on DHL its approx £120 .Im contemplating shippping my gear back home as i plan to stay in USA for 3 weeks and will be a bind lugging the stuff around for 3 weeks.
Made a note that it is no longer just Virgin that fly to Vegas direct
I managed to get my World GT kit down to 15kg last year, and that included racing t-shirts. I thought this was the cunning choice of a control tyre class, but I've since got a Touring Car bag down to a similar weight. I needed to be brutal with what I left behind.
The only thing I couldn't take was a Tyre Truer. Only needed it once, and Scotty was good enough to hook another UK racer and I up with an IIC racer prepared to share theirs.
As we were travelling on for a few weeks, I shipped my kit back to the UK. There is a UPS shipping point in the Riviera Business Centre just up the corridon from the ballroom. Thay also had a box and tape available, and I the guys pitting near me couldn't believe how much kit could fit into that box!
Failing that it would be hand luggage (seen it done before!)
Unfortunately I cannot make this year's IIC
Trust me if I didn't have a prior commitment in the UK for finals day, I'd be booked and ready to go already. Scotty and the crew put on an awesome meeting
