I haven't attended a major race since Cleveland last year........ but I plan on going back to Cleveland this year as it is always on my race schedule every year no matter what other races I attend.

Besides....... Thanksgiving at home is boring! We can have Denny's!

Ok, so my question(s):

I'll be attending my first Champs this year, after having run at the 'Birds in 2009 and 2010. Yeah...tweren't pretty, neither...LOL...

Anyways...how does the pit setup work? Show up, pick a table...? Wednesday night, can we set up?

How 'bout Concourse Thursday? Are there different "divisions"? Most Realistic, most colorful, fans' choice, etc.?

Lookin' forward to this one

Oh - and let's hear from some oval guys here Any tire-choice tips, setup tips, rollout, etc.? Gonna be running Tekin RS/Duo3/PowerPush.

Cool

Yeah you pit in your room , the tv acts as your monitor , with a list of the heats and you have sound ...

concourse one for each class I believe that the way it was done in the past then they give us a little pizza party after all winners and pic....

17 more days . . . . .

Umm...well...won't *have* a room at the hotel (and not planning on getting one); I only live like 30 minutes from there Is there any trackside/conference room pitting at all (like at the 'Birds)...? And, yes, I do realize that this is *not* the 'Birds...just wondering if there's any pitting set up like what they do down south.

About the pitting situation...just got a message from Wayne (at The Gate) that he thinks there's a $25.00 fee for pitting trackside/ballroom. Can anyone confirm/deny? Need to plan financially...

I'd wait for Ian (CypressMidWest) to confirm or deny this to make it official.

The price for the ballroom is based on x number of rooms sold for the event, if a certain number is not met then the price for the ballroom goes up. I believe there used to not be any trackside pitting and EVERYONE had to get a room, the complaints led to a compromise of sorts and frankly $25 for a trackside pit-space at a event of this magnitude is a bargain.

I was joking with Kingbee.

In all seriousness I think the $25 is a great deal and I wish my schedule worked a little better so I could do this race.
