I'll be off in a couple of weeks with with quite a few other people (366 at the last look!!) to the first round of the 2014-15 ETS series.
Rounds 1 & 2 are indoor carpet meetings.
At first glance, out of the 366 entries only 50 people are doing more than once class.
Entries numbers for each class are;
64 - Formula 1
123 - Modified
182 - 13.5 Blinky
We've already been warned that the race days will start at 7am and run through until 11pm for Friday and Saturday.
We're definitely hoping that Finals day ends sooner, or we'll be walking back to the UK
I hope some of the US drivers can make it over to some of the later rounds.
I worked out that the total cost for each of us in our group from the UK (6), which includes parking at airport, flights, additional luggage charge, car hire, hotels, entry fee's and extra tyres comes to less than...... $400!!
You can probably double that for us to do the Hudy Arena gig in June/July time but that would also include food etc.
If you can afford the extra for the international flights I strongly suggest you try to make it to one of these great international meetings.
I'll try to post info and photos etc from the Sport V hotel where it's taking place, but if it's anything like the other meetings, once you get a few hundred people trying to access WiFi etc it tends to become a bit difficult.
Last years track, I think it may be slightly bigger this year;
