Just spoke with Eggie the Race Director of Barceloneta and he said the local TV stations are running commercials for the event.
We may actually get a pretty good spectator turnout, might help grow the GT class even more in Puerto Rico because of it.







If any of you still thinking of attending you have some time left to join the party.

There's 23 days to go until the start of the 2012 GT World Championships!

Yes that is correct. There is TV ads, newspapers, etc. The most read newspaper is sponsoring the event and will be there for race coverage.

Well guys there is still time to race with us in the most important race of the year for GTs.

It will be kind of hard for me to attend that SWCS race when I will be in Barceloneta, Puerto Rico running at the third annual Ipanema GT World Championship that same weekend. Going to have fun in the sun, see plenty of hot chicas, eat some great local foods, see plenty of terrific sites in-between time, and try to bring the GT World Championship back to the states (currently held by a racer that runs at the Barceloneta track).

You go it right, the competition will be even stiffer with some of the fast guys from the other categories getting into GT. In the last race the track record was again broken so to have the TQ one needs to get into 13 laps. To have an idea the Sedan guys do 14 laps. About the hot chicas you can bet there will be some great looking girls there. I know there will be some models from one of the race sponsors. Plus we want to keep the GT Championship here in the Tropical home.

Good Luck to all at the Ipanema race. Do you have a updated list of drivers who are entered and where they are from/chassis/engines.

I know you want to keep the title in Puerto Rico, but, you can't stop us from wanting to bring it back to the mainland. It will definite be some good racing and good on-track battles when the flag drops.

Looking forward to see you again, my friend!! Heard that you have gotten much faster and are blistering the competition lately. Heck, you were fast enough back in December while I was down so it looks like I have more of an uphill battle to hang with you now!!

Hey, are you going to have some of that "home brew" with you? I think that is part of your secrets to racing!!
