Looks like we should have between 6-8 GT drivers coming from Texas. We need to start 2013 year off strong for the GT class. Can we sign up through RCSign up for this race. Let's start a role call for this race. We have 6 confirmed from Texas with 2 or more possible.

We are not real familiar with this class. I seem to remember that it is single speed only. If there is enough interest we can offer it as an exhibition provisional class. To do this we would need firm commitments from at least 10 people who will actually come and race.

WOW! This is great seeing all the people who are planning to attend the GT Race. We are getting commitments from several of your fellow racers from Puerto Rico, Brazil, Argentina, Peru, Chile and other far away places. This is shaping up to be a fantastic event!

Chad, which race are you guys going to? I assume not the FORGAS race, so the GT race or the Novarossi Race ....... Stay the week and do both???

Paul,

Why did you delete the rest of your post?

Who told you you couldn't use your body?

According to the rules Doug posted, what are you worried about?
