Thanks Z, I'll pack accordingly.

Ted, I can always count on you for shrinkage.

Nice looking track but I have a question. Having pit entrance in a high speed chicane looks like a crash waiting to happen to me. Is this much of an issue?? Seems the entrance could be moved up the short chute before the chicane and relieve some potential problems. Just curious. Thanks!!

That has been changed. You enter the pits after the last right hand turn before entering the cicane area. You just run a little wide and run right on in.
I think it really works good.

Sounds good!! After looking at the pics just one more question. When entering the pits thru the chicane it looks like you cross the loop and count a lap before entering the pits. With the new pit lane, does a lap get counted entering the pits??

Yes, the pit entrance has been changed and the timing loop has been extended so that your laps will count when you enter the pits.

The old pit enntrance was never really a problem but it was exciting.

We need to know if there is interest in covered pit space. It will be $20 per person. It would include table space and a chair under the tent. If interested, let me know. We need to determine the size of tent needed.

Also, be sure to get your hotel rooms. There is a discount rate listed above.

It's very quiet in here. Is there a list of entries anywhere? How many so far? Who is planning on attending? I will probably be looking for a pit man as usual, any volunteers?

As of today, the Ramada still has a few rooms. If you are coming to race, you need to call them very soon.

I will have an entry list wed night.

Hey Z, How is that entry list coming along. I hear that Doc will be in the house looking to finish off the year with a victory. I also have heard thru the grapevine that mr. peck has bought another used mugen to compete.

Who's coming next weekend????

Does anyone know how to get in touch with Mr. Gannon?

Thanks
