Anyone know what the rules are for leaving anything (trailer?) in the paddock overnight? I'm assuming it's a no.
Definite yes. Last year codrus set up his trailer friday and marked out spots for us in kitty tape.

I'll be there, I may or may not have my +1 with me (she's driving on Sat, but maybe headed out that afternoon).

Sweet. Added you to the post above, and also created a parking list so we know how much space to save. I'll be going to the track as soon as it opens on Friday and will save as much space as possible.

Yeah, you can typically drop trailers in the paddock starting 3-4 PM on Friday. I leave my trailer & car there, drive the truck to/from the hotel.

I'll probably be there for Baja Cantina.

Wait, none of you guys are staying for Saturday night party at the track???

Quote:
Saturday night party
The party will take place at the Hospitality Pavilion at the track and blues band Red Beans and Rice will be performing. There will be a cash bar and lots of food. The cost is $20 per person.
My buddy is trailering and I'm driving from San Diego, would be great to meet all of you.

Unless I'm way off base here and all of you are not talking about Miatas at Laguna Seca on October 1 and 2. If you are, then you need to take a look at the official page. Dinner at the track is buffet style and they will have drinks available and live music going.

Dang, just read that a bunch of you are camping out. I was going to do the same, but my friend talked me into splitting cost of hotel (which is still expensive). I would rather spend the money on new bushing set.

I've been unimpressed with the official Miatas@MRLS dinner/party/bbq/etc that I've been to, so I've quit bothering to go. Mediocre, overpriced food, long lines, crowded tables, boring speeches, etc.

Well, then I'll just see you at the track. I've already paid for the dinner/party and after a full day of driving I'll be hella tired, so staying right there for the rest of the evening is quite appealing.

Also not down for $40 of mediocre food.
I will also be leaving a trailer in the paddock. Albeit a bit smaller one than the rest of you.

The last time I went to the dinner we got there 10 minutes late ended up sitting on the floor against the wall.

I mean, maybe they have gotten their collective **** together since then, but until I hear otherwise I'm just not interested.

I talked to IB today. They are getting stickers made and hopefully will be sending them to 18psi in time.

Yes, what everyone else said about the Saturday night party. I've never been, but would much rather be with 15-20 of us at a place with better food than hundreds of wine and cheesers and a band nobody wants to listen to.

1. Ed (+2)
4. EO2k
5. Savington?
6. Kotomile?
7. Aidan (+1 maybe)
9. 18psi?
10. Codrus
11. gesso, maybe +1
12. OneTwo
13. jcmusmc00
14. afm
15. twibs


Who else? We will probably want to warn them.

Parking:

1. Codrus
2. Aidan
3. Ed
4. OneTwo
5. Afm
6. EO2k
7. Gesso
8. 2Slow
9. Twibs

So what time are we doing this? Let's do it late enough to allow time for a shower between the track and dinner.

As far as parking is concerned, I'll be driving my crew cab 3/4 pickup, not my Miata.
