The race days are 10th and 11th of Nov. I know guys will be able to practice on the 9th.

I recall the La quinta on the Northside of the track is less than $70 per night. The price of the La quinta on the Southside of the track had gone up, just a FYI.

Anyone have an Inferno GT and GT2? I'm curious on the differences. Is the GT2 just a longer chassis and longer center front and rear driveshafts?

It was a good race weekend at the 2012 Gulf Coast Grand Prix!
It rained overnight Sat so the mains got started later due to that, but we got it in!

Gt Results:

Paul Coleman (TQ) 89 30:10.205
Bill Sydor. 86 30:14.034
Chad kiffe. 85 30:03.857

It was great meeting new GT8 drivers! Andy Liu was awesome and Bill Sydor was such a funny dude, and great driver! Bill and me where about 15 sec apart for most of the race until he had a tire wear out towards the end! Andy was running 3rd I think until he had motor issues I believe. It was great being back racing again! My Serpent was Freaking great!
Thanks to Mikes hobby shop for putting on a great race!!

Paul Coleman came back to the GT class with a BAM!!! It was fantastic to run with you again Paul and Bill. I am still trying to digest the idea of Paul's front positive camber setup.....ha....ha...ha. All my friends from Texas I'll miss you greatly. It is time for me to depart from my old friends and meeting new ones in the Midwest. I am sure I'll see some of you fine folks from the great Texas once again in the future. Indianapolis, here I come !!!!
