It's either the Jacob Javits Center or Madison Square Garden.... I'm a retired NYC employee and I've lived in Manhattan, I know it very well.... If you know NYC and read the post you can pretty much figure out it's the JJ Center.... I did make a positive and helpful comment... If you want the NYC metro area pick one of the venues on the outskirts of the city....
What you said are all good points. I am still working on the venue so I dont want to say where it is yet. I have considered the problem of bring all the gear to the track. I have to ways to solve this.
1. Shuttle service from the hotel. You can bring everything with you on the shuttle. I will drop you off at the location and pick you up at the end of the right out front.
2. I am planning on having security in the pit are. Leave all you heavy gear at the track and just bring home your car and basic tools to work on the car. There is no need to bring everything back and forth with you.
Let me just clear up the whole ROAR debate going. I am doing my best to plan this event during a time when there is no other major event going, ROAR or not. I do not care for the way ROAR is being run right now so my concern is not on them. I am looking for the first quarter of next year, maybe febuary. We'll see what happens.
And to answer your question, I am racer and have been for about 10 years, so I know what everyone brings to the track.
Keep the comments coming guys.
