Default Petit Le Mans, who is going?

So I'm seriously contemplating coming to Ammurrica for the Petit Le Mans at Road Atlanta in october (17-20 I believe). Anybody else planning to go? We should meat

Shuiend/Lars: you better be there

I'm not seeing that on the schedule. Is it Sprint Cup or Nationwide?

Petit is a great event. I go most years, though I'm not sure if I will make it this year. If you are planning to camp, get there EARLY--as in when the gates open--to get a good spot. Camp sites will fill up quickly.

I am going to try to go. I have a wedding at the start of the month so I will have to see how much money and time off I can get.

It is not 100% a cost thing, it is also being able to get the time off from work. Since it is during the week I am not sure if that will be doable.

Question- do venues such as this ever have RV hookups, or is it understood that you will be dry camping?

Different tracks have different amenities. Road Atlanta does have a few RV power hookups. I do not think they have any sewage hookups.

Road Atlanta has power hookups but no sewage hookup. They have a few shower facilities spread all over the place. I will be there, but not camping.

yeah, no ****... got there thurs night last year to pop up a little tent... in the woods on un-even ground. The Hang-over was terrrible sat morning. Saw your trailer last year too - missed you guys though.

I don't know if I'm going yet... but I compare it to the Talledega of Road Racing... party starts Tuesday. Screw the tent and ants this time, my rolling 'RV' Excursion is big enough to camp in

Probably just a bag with enough **** for a week. If I could hitch a ride and/or join the camping fun that'd be awesome.

One of the showers even has hot water. But I'm not posting which one that is on a public forum... If the secret gets out, I may never get in.

If I camp--and that's a big if because my house is right up the road from the track--,I'll probably do so in my trailer. It has a/c. Plus that might motivate me to finally install the stereo. I was also considering a projector and xbox.

There is a chance that I may not be going out. I am scheduled to go on a business trip to St. Louis in October. Unfortunately I have no clue when they will actually decide to have it, and knowing my luck it will be that week.
