Default Rolex 24 Jan. 30-31st

I will be attending the rolex this year and hopefully can run into some other users on the site. Tickets can be bought here....


I am going to be doing the "Taste the 24" which is great food and beverages held in the Private stands.

If you can't use the tickets don't let them go unused, haha! I'm close enough to go at the drop of a hat.

Oh okay


There is also the pre race this weekend where it's cheaper and less crowded. You have a bit more access and can bring your car into the I fields of the stadium. Might go to that too

I'm planning on going and camping, so long as I can get everything arranged and they still have general tent camping spots available. Haven't bought tickets yet, but it's probably going to happen. I'll make up my mind by tonight.

Post it on the thread so I know. Today was awesome. Less crowded, park anywhere, and enjoy the sounds of racing. Pics to follow

I have this feeling that this Porsche is going to win. He looked good and fast on the track.

And the steel is late. And I just go an email that the seat is delayed 10-12 days.

Trying to choose between rush an untested car into an enduro or target the next event instead. Those photos make me lean towards the latter.

Default Taste of 24

Going to Taste of 24 also. There are 6 of us. Looking forward to seeing the new Ford GT. Let me know if everyone wants to meet somewhere.

Thanks,

Taso
