Nah I only get 1 bag of 23kg, think
We're flying continental. With a stop in houston

Odd, Arluck told me he wasn't going to be able to make the IIC this year and now you have him building the track?

You can get a great idea of what you guys are all in for.

Make it a blind draw team event. Weigh people when they sign in and make the teams all weight about the same. You pair up the lightest with the heaviest, second lightest & second heaviest etc. That makes it a handicaped race and a mixer all in one.

Check the Continental site Luke - you may get more allowance than that

I've just finished packing my r/c gear for the trip. Comes out at 15kg in the case + racing t-shirts + iPod speakers. World GT...it is the way forward

The remaining luggage allowance has already been claimed by Fran

PDW - Fran admires your one stop trip, but politely points out we'll be in first class for the Detroit-Vegas flight

Cheers, Mark

That is funny because as soon as I read what Charlie said I thought to myself, I guess Charlie is going to build it this year.

Looking at the Confirmed Entry List, I see 3 guys in mod foam TC. Didn't there used to be more? Surely they can't run the class with 3 entries.

Mine's come in at 16kg, so plenty of space for shopping!! Chris still has has her total allowance intact, but it's liable to be breached on the way home, not the way out!!

Tell Fran that she has you well-trained - no way you could treat such a first-class lady any other way!

Next time we meet it will be to set up Team GBs pit space. I am really looking forward to this!!

Must be even or lower then the roof and does not matter if they are painted or not. You are better off keeping the wing lower then the roof or you will be doing cutting to get it even if it is taller.
