Midway is the closest one to the track. There is also Ohare, which ever one fits your flight needs. There are many motels, hotels to choose from. The Manor Inn is close with a few places to eat close by. There are some about 20 min. away by the hobby shop with many places to eat and stores if you need something while you are here. Here is a link to our web site with info, leisurehoursraceway.com

Thanks for the updated post.

You can count on the IGThobbies.com Team from Texas to be there, 4 or 5 of us.
Please post the final rules for the class if possible.

Thanks

I forgot to add that the ofna DM1 is allowed to run in GT even though it has a flat chassis.

Glad to hear you guys are coming up as well. As Mike posted 20+ cars last year and as I said, I had a great time. Looking forward to racing with the IGTHobbies Crew.

RCMIKEL......

With the advent of the TEAMC GT car models on the market, should the 'chassis must have kickup' verbage be tossed? Ofna has always been allowed.... There's another 'exception' in the mix. The TEAMC is a flat chassis too.
