The preparations for the 2nd Annual International Grand Prix at Homestead Miami Speedway hosted by Homestead RC Raceway are well under way.

Entry forms are available for download. All racers will be provided with free covered pit space, pit table and chair. Arrangements have been made for preferred parking inside the Homestead Miami Speedway by entry through a VIP gate.

The Homestead Miami Speedway track crew is helping Homestead RC Raceway to prepare our racing surface. They are doing some of the same things they do on their 1 Ĺ mile track to help with tire wear and improve traction.

The RC Car Race Track area for the Intíl Grand Prix will be prepped with abrasive materials to minimize sharp edges on the surface. Next the surface will be further improved with the actual burning and rubbing in of natural rubber.

When this is completed several well known racers will test the surface to make sure we have a quality racing surface for some great racing at the International Grand Prix.

With help from you and Dave plus a lot of other great people we are pretty sell sufficient now. Our p.a. and scoring system are working flawlessly. Dave can travel much lighter if he would like and leave the trailer, p.a., and scoring system at home. Just make sure there are some "Red Cups!"

As a side note this Wednesday and Thursday we are going to Homestead Miami Speedway for Indy Car Spring Training. They are going to let us watch the Indy Cars test from 4pm to 10pm from the air conditioned fourth floor viewing area. This will be so awesome to watch these cars going over 200mph at night. I can hardly wait!

I think this is going to be shown on Speed Channel tomorrow night as well for anyone who can't make it down to warm and sunny South Florida.
