I watch'em some on TV. This would be pretty cool to go to, but I can't commit this far out.

Finals is usually the race to see, but who really knows on this one? It's a first time event so no one can be sure. I don't want to miss any of it.

Their normal race format is 2 completely independent races Saturday and Sunday. Separate qualifying (the morning of the race) and everything. There are no "finals". If you can only go one day, Saturday is probably the better day. The cars will all be fresh and unmolested for that race. The Sunday race often has some beat up cars that underwent massive repairs overnight.

Found the prices. Doesn't seem too unreasonable, I guess, especially for GA:

"Tickets for the event go on sale Tuesday Oct 16 (US time) through Ticketmaster. Three-day general admission tickets from $69 (US) and three-day reserved seats range from $83 to $275 (US)."

You are most welcome. I attended a Supercar race in Sydney a couple years ago while on vacation. It was one of the most fan-friendly professional events I'd ever been to. No separate garage passes, etc. The ticket was all access, all weekend. And the racing was incredible.

And I'm definitely in, as are about 6-7 other friends of mine.

This is what NASCAR needs to look into as for racing. I love watching this type of racing including in the rain. Like F1 this is racing at its best! Sorry had to vent a little.

Is the plan for everyone to purchase tickets for the same section/price?? I'm sort of a new guy around here and it seems kind'a like everyone else knows each other somewhat. Of course I'll be an 'old guy' by next May. (actually I'm already an old guy but that's another subject.)

The track is only a little over an hour away from me. I need an excuse to go there since it's so close.

General Admission so we can move around freely is the best route. Pretty sure a few more Louisiana guys are going also.


Looking forward to it. I probably will be living in Houston by that time.

Not sure if I will attend, but there seems to be a good group of the G8s going, too.

http://www.g8board.com/forums/showthread.php?t=64036

It would be neat to organize a way for all GTOs and G8s to meet together for this. I know a couple of guys from the Chicago Holden Connection were planning on going, as well.

Anyone on the G8Board want to post up there, or see if they have details lined up? I can share the information on the CHC, as well.
