Anyone going? This year should be entertaining for BMW owners, as they have parade laps scheduled along with some other things.

Hey, I'm about 50/50 right now. Hopefully I'll be going but due to how late it is already its gonna mean an hour from the track for the closest place to stay. I really don't wanna miss it though. I have gone the last 2 years and its a great race. How about Road Atlanta? That has to be my favorite. What are you plans for that one??

I've been going to Sebring since I was 4 years old and haven't missed a year since, so it's a big deal for me. Hope to see if you guys can make it!

I don't park my car in the corral, I park it in the paddock. I tried the corral the year that the car first came out and no one knew what it was and people kept laying all over it and rubbing the car, I guess they wanted to make the car file sexual harrassment.

The coral was a little bit off the beaten path, on the outside of turn 17, on the other side of the car bridge from the main gate into the paddock. A tent, small grandstand, and a decent showing of bimmers on Friday and Saturday.

I thought I saw a large gathering of BMWs there. I didn't get a chance to see them though.

However, after the race I did get to drive on the track.

Did you guys see the big photographer's platform directly across from you on the other side of the track? It used to be where I am every year, in turn 15/16, it's called the Stairway to Heaven, really cool to go up it.

About the corral. Do you have to sign up for that? Is there a fee?

You have to be on a guest list from your dealer for the Porsche one. I am not sure about BMW.

It was a different ticket that you had to purchase for Sebring (which really was just a sticker on a regular ticket). Take a look at the following links for more info:

What if I don't want all the other stuff and I have a place to park, can I just do the parade laps?
