Hi Mark,

Thanks for your interest. V8 Supercars will likely set up much of the marketing activities surrounding the race in May. I can pass your interest along and make note of it when we are included in the pre- and post-race activities.

Best,

Are you guys meeting up with the G8 clan for this? Any details on where everyone is meeting to start a caravan?

Just bought a G8 on Monday after selling my GTO in June 2011 and can't wait to join a caravan again! Been about 4 years since I've seen most of ya!

I will help in anyway possible with getting as many G8 guys to join in.

Thanks Peeps!

I found a SLP Firehawk and couldn't pass it up.

Don't want to be pushy so if you guys are just doing GTO's that's cool. Just offering to help if we all want to go down together.

I saw somone posted on the G8 board forum. I think it would be cool for all us Holden made cars to get together for the ride in. Hopefully they let us all park together by the track in a paved lot. I'll be driving out from South Carolina via northeast Oklahoma. It would be really great if we could do a parade lap around the track!

If you WANT a Holden corral for V8 Supercars, call this dude and tell him. He should know what to do to get that going:

Then somebody needs to contact AJ and tell him that. Lot P is near turn one and is not paved but is part grass and not as dusty as lot F. Lots A, B, and C are very near the track and that's where most of the corrals were for Grand-Am.

I'll contribute by contacting AJ. I'm a for sure on attending this event with Littlecrunch. Should be a great time as always!

Spoke to AJ and he said that the parade lap wasn't something that was probably going to happen. He did say however that if we wanted to caravan in together and park in the same lot, he would be more than happy to arrange that for us. He also said that if anyone needs tickets, or wants to get tickets together, that he could arrange a block of seats for us as well.

I mentioned up by Turn 1 since it's mostly grass and not as dusty. I think if we start a list of who wants to park together, we could let him know closer to the date.

Don't wait too long. You'll all need to buy parking anyway (unless you're carpooling) since they won't be running shuttles for this race.

Is this going to be like a car corral that some others have had at the track? I just wondered since us
G8 people would like to join as well, and I could let them know where we all plan to park. Will our parking passes no matter where we have them be good at the group parking? Thanks. Jerry

For ours, everybody who wanted in the corral contaced AJ and he put us all in the same lot. Then inside that lot, they had a section roped off for all of us.

We have someone that is suppose to contact the track also, but have not heard anything, I just sent him a pm about if heard from them. So I guess we should set up our own then and see about parking near your area?
