I am.

My buddy Gary is going to bring his R32 GT-R (had black Sentra there last year). A customer of mine named Mike is bringing his Factory Five Cobra replica. My buddy Jarod who was there last year with the motorhome and the G8 GT will be back with a brand new Boss 302 and a '84 RX7 racecar. His wife will be driving as well. My other friend Jamie will try to come but will wait too late to register and be unable (I can see it coming) (N/A NA Miata).

I haven't checked with Lars or any of you guys yet. Are you going, Collin?

It didn't look like Bryan's car was ready yet.

The amp event was originally the same day as petit lemans, but I ended up being cancelled.

I am currently planning on going, and everything looks good to do so as well. I just need to figure out where I will be sleeping this time. I can bug Lars about it again, maybe Ill get an answer from him. lol.

I'm hotel-ing this time with Gary and probably have my nephew on the floor. We're booked up or I'd offer.

Is someone bringing a grill? If so I might be willing to come out and cook.

Its all good, Ill find a nice floor to stay on, or a tent somewhere.
Lars come drive! and grill! ill help out this time : D

On another note, six.
Do you know what the deal is with being signed off from de2 to de3? I currently have a ultrashield with 6pt harness for driver and oem seat with oem 3 pt for passenger. I may be able to aquire a 6pt for the pass as well, but I will not be able to get a seat for the passenger. Would an instructor still be able to ride along? or am I sol?

Also, side note i do still have the oem drivers seat and belts if need be, but I would prefer to keep the ultrashield in the car.

IF I can swing it, I'll drive over for the day - that's a big IF too.

RA is only a 2.5hr joy ride for me - getting away is the hard part!

For some reason I always thought it was a farther haul than that for you...

Sign up for the annual membership and then check the box for HPDE1. Do it at https://www.nasaproracing.com/event/1345


My buddy Jamie just signed up for the event, too. It's gonna be a party.
