Cool, so it's ok if I want to register a 2nd number?? I've got 2 cars (and 2 pt's), and may well want to run both during practice, so it would be a whole load easier to reg both numbers - otherwise i'll be doing my bit for double sided tape manufactures!!

I want to try an watch the races live on liverc if possible. Where can I find out the approximate times of each race so that I can calculate when I can watch it in Australia?

The local time, in Florida, is considered -5:00 Eastern Time (US & Canada). I hope that helps a little bit.

Thanks mate. Looks like I'm 16 hours ahead. If it starts 8.00am is Florida, it will be midnight in Sydney I think I'll just watch them in the mornings

I just watched the video from practice day. First thing that did strike me was the track layout. After attending previous WC in Holland, EC in few other countries not saying even comparing to our national events : THIS TRACK ( to be polite) lacks a lot. Layout is so simple that the cars look like they were running on a toy track not professionally prepared track for WC.

there are only same type turns. No roundabouts , no fast chicanes that lead to 180 turn etc. no changes of rhythm . For almost 1/3 of lap you go with almost full throttle ( i doubt that there is a grate need to reduce speed at the end of straight)

Races where we ( localy) make lap times under 10sec are generally considered really poor or super "local club meetings". Track that lacks variety of types of turns often is a open door for drivers that for some unimportant reason prefer this certain type.

Summarizing I did expect more from the track. Happily I had to withdraw this year because of birth of my daughter. Otherwise I would probably be unsatisfied and felt that lot of money had been wasted. Seeing this track , I suppose it would have been better to run this event on controlled tires on asfalt track. It would be more interesting.

Looked like a "club" track to me too.
Dimensions seem to be much smallaer than 2012 too.
We want dots, zig-zag, 180deg turns, 200ft of straight, and more than 50 drivers next time !

Definitely very small and not very exciting track.

Who knows though, might bring some exciting racing, don't write it off yet. (Hard not to though....)

He's not wrong though is he?

It's not an exciting track and it's a lot smaller than I'd have imagined.
