Hey Doug, you should rename this event as "The Words GT-8" before the Panamerican name sticks. That's how good this event is!!!

Sign me up!! I'm glad to dust off my GT once a year for this one.

Last year's event was my 1st race in the GT class and 1st race in nitro. Having only 1 month (in other words a couple of weekend's) worth of experience with the GT before a big race like this, I was a little intimidated to attend such a big event which included travel from Texas. Shortly after arriving I realized going to this race was the best decision I could have ever made. I learned more during this race weekend than I ever could have practicing on my own. Add to that a very well organized event, awesome people/racers and a great track made this event the highlight of my year.

I look forward to this year's event with a little more time and experience under my belt and a burning desire to race. I just can't stop thinking about that awesome sweeper and the layout of the infield.
I know all that have been to this race in the past will not hesitate to come back but for those of you that are new to the GT class and/or nitro world, stop second guessing yourselves and book your flight for this event. You will definitely learn a lot and have a blast running anywhere in the pack.

See you in Homestead!

Wow, I can't belive I can't make it this year again. For those that can make it, like the others have said the facility is first class and the racing is super competitive. It's a bummer that I wont be there but there's alway next year!

The last time I was there to race the new pavement and “long” lay out was used. I have seen video since where a shorter lay out was used instead.

Which one will be used for this upcoming race?

Thanks

WOW! It is great to see so many racers who are coming back to Homestead to race with us again, plus the racers who are planning on racing with us for the first time!

GT racers, you do not want to miss this one. This race is unique and is for GT cars only which makes it special. We will have some of the best racers in the world coming to rub shoulders, trade paint and give helpful advice for you.

Just to let everyone know we have already been contacted by racers from Puerto Rico, Brazil and Chile.

This is going to be something special!

We will be using the full course 13 turn layout. We don't want to cheat anyone out of the complete racing experience of "Excitement in the Fast Lane!"
