The inside straightaway boards are removed at turn 5 eliminating turns 1. 2, 3, 4 and 5. You ran the long course last year. You will run the long course this year.

So there is no confusion we will race on the complete course all 13 turns at the Pan Am Int'l 1/8 GT Grand Prix.

Hi Dee,

We are glad you are coming back to race with us again. We sure enjoyed having you as our guest last January.

We will have registration online again this year. It will be set up so you can enter the race, order extra pit space and pre-order your souvenir t-shirts so you can have the correct size waiting for you when you get to the race track.

I need to go over a few details with Johnny to make sure we are on the same page. If everything goes according to my plans we will go live with the online sign up registration October 8th.

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

Ricci, we have already had a World's. Everyone gets too serious and forgets to have fun. The Pan American Int'l 1/8 GT Grand Prix is a lot better! Dust off your GT and have some fun with us!

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!

Thanks Daniel, we are glad you had such a great time last year. We look forward to having you race with us again in January!
