Can't believe someone would do that to a fellow racer! That makes me really mad even though it's not my loss. Hope the car will be found Anders.

Not selling beer in the courtyard had something to do with that I think. The only problem I have with the race is how awful that hotel is. Words can't describe it. From our door not having a latch on the frame. To the chairs in the room that were breaking. The missing fridge and the rust spots on the floor where it use to be. The fridge they brought us that wouldnt stay closed. The TV the blew up the first time we turned it on. Thats about all I can remember right now. Brian might remember more.
Wow! I thought I had it bad with having to buy and replace light bulbs for some decent light. One of the two chairs did come apart, but I'd blame that on my 255+lbs trying to "swivel" it from one pit table to the next.

Cigarette smoke coming through the bathroom light fixture from a room on the opposite side of the building was interesting though.

Wireless access was a plus! Until I realized I left my laptop charger in VA. And to think that an HP would be so non-standard that two different "universal" chargers couldn't fit the plug...

I'm used to adapting in life, so the qualifying/racing "issues" didn't bother me much. I didn't hear shouting more than I do at our local club races, but if it happened as stated, I certainly wouldn't condone it. However, I just remembered a few more items concerning the hotel.

I must have called four times over two days to get my remote batteries replaced. I ended up using my own spare rechargeables. They also told me AFTER I had unpacked and setup that my room was "marked" as one with a non-fixable heater. After naturally refusing to move (my own choice) I received extra blankets the next day following the last cold night before it warmed up mid week.

Thanks again for the comments. The Thunder crew and myself felt this was the best 'birds yet in all aspects. No complaints here.... I just added some more pictures on the Snowbird site. Enjoy!
