I think the handout traction compound is to control the smell, I dont think the tire cleaners will cause much of a problem.

Using Buggy Grip for cleaning? That sound like "Ba Bye"...

Ok quick on break at work.

No body height rule. The wing must be lower than the roof of the car. and the car must meet the ride height rule

Cleaning tires ok. Motor spray is fine to clean your tires.

Added room for pit spots?
No, we have limited room and we are above what we set for capacity.
every one will have enough room to work on their cars.

Time to get back to work before i get fired

Boomer-

Just a general question about practice on wed. One of the guys sat down last night and figured it would take about 7 hours to do one practice round, 5 min for touring and 8 min for 1/12 with 3 min between rounds. With a 2 pm start how are you going to fit 2 rounds in.

Just curious.

The Math is a little off but, To answer your question, yes it will be a late one on wednesday! about 5.5 hours a round. We can not get the ballroom any earlier. We (The Staff) get 10-12 hours to get the room ready with everything from laying the carpet to getting pits ready.

we wanted to offer enough practice to everyone and this is all we could do.

Boomer,

If a round takes about 6 hours, the mains should take about the same. If we are starting the mains @ 8am we should be done (not including awards)around 2-3pm. Am I correct or am I missing something?

Still haven't made airplane reservations and trying to figure out it I can make a 6pm flight on Sunday.

The races will not be as fast as practice.It will probably take about 7 hours for racing. Also take into account Trouphy,Raffles. It will still be somewhat early on Sunday.
I have said it earlier in the thread but why rush. Enjoy, If you are able to stick around. why risk missing your flight. Sunday is a crowded day at the airport. So you gotta get there early.

Just my 2cents.

Sunday is horrible at McCarren Airport in Las Vegas. It is not uncommon to stand in the security line for an hour on Sunday. I fly into, out of LV quite often and on one occassion the security line wound throw the airport and out into the parking garage. 3 hours later I get through it, only to have missed by flight by 5 mins! Of course this was the Sunday after CES but still be prepared and if possible stay Sunday night and leave Monday morning. Hotel rooms in Vegas drop significantly on Sunday night.
