Talking IIC Returns - October 2-7, 2016

"I am proud to announce the RETURN OF THE INTERNATIONAL INDOOR CHAMPIONSHIPS.

It has been a long and difficult road but hard work pays off and we are BACK! Oct 2-8 2016 at the WESTGATE HOTEL AND CASINO.

The WESTGATE is located just behind the Riviera and was the Hilton in its previous life. It is an beautiful hotel and casino with tons of shops, restaurants and stuff to do and located directly on the Monorail.

The place is very lively. An awesome casino with 2 bars right in the casino, many restaurants, a coffee shop right in the lobby and the hotel rooms are very nice.

We have 2 levels of hotel rooms. The Premier rooms and the Signature rooms. Both levels are fully remodeled and both come with a small refrigerator. Reservations can be made for rooms at 1-800-635-7711 and the room code is SIIC6R. For those of you that will be bringing the family to the IIC, the Pool is awesome! Very large and spacious with cabanas, lots of lounge chairs and a grill and bar right there.

A very convenient way to get up and down the strip is the Monorail, which runs from the Westgate all the way to the MGM Grand and it is awesome. It loads right outside the front doors of the Westgate and takes you all the way down the strip in 15 minutes for $5. Way better than a taxi. I took a ride and it is great. It makes stops along the way to get you close to any spot you would like on the strip.

DEADLINE FOR OUR GROUP RATE IS SEPTEMBER 10TH. DON'T WAIT TO BOOK YOUR ROOMS AS OUR BLOCK WILL FILL UP FAST.
The hotel booking code will not be active until next week and I will post that as soon as it is live. But for now you can start looking into flights and make plans to join us in Las Vegas for the 11th running of the International Indoor Championships.

Scotty"

For this years race, we have had to make a few adjustments to the schedule. What this means is that the finals will be run on Friday instead of Saturday. So that means we have to shift everything to the left by one day.

Here is how this years schedule will work:
Sunday October 2: Registration and Pit setup Noon-5pm. Drivers meeting Buffett Dinner 6pm
Monday October 3: Practice
Tuesday October 4: Practice
Wednesday October 5: Qualifying
Thursday October 6: Qualifying
Friday October 7: Mains

You can now book your rooms online. In addition, you can choose from more than room style if available. To book your room online copy and paste; https://resweb.passkey.com/go/SIIC6R into your favorite browser or click here.

If you would prefer to call the hotel and talk to someone you can call them at 1-800-635-7711 and the room code is SIIC6R.



P.S. Thanks for starting this Still Bill!

And seeing that I live in Reno (Biggest Little City) these days, I should be able to survive a week in Vegas (Sin City).

Hoping for a traditional WGT class; but, will understand if WGT-R is the new standard.

If that's true that's the same week as the off road nitro 1/8th scale world in Vegas.

Not sure if I'm going to be able to make it Haven't touched an on-road car in over a year and only recently started driving off-road again. So I'd likely be a menace on the track.
