I totally forgot about it! I might go on Saturday to watch the qualifyings, and then on Sunday for the race. I'm not sure which classes I'm interested in though, I don't have a good idea about the different classes. Which ones are you going to watch?CD-55 said:
Hey thanks Steve!! Yea I knew about the GTR V8 fiasco....sucks we can't watch em in action.SteveT said:Just checked out the National Grand Prix web site and there will be NO parking at RFK Stadium. They want everyone to ride the Metro, so no corral.
Teej was asking about the classes. The World Challenge Touring and GT will have many BMW's. The ALMS race will be the Prototypes and the Corvettes, Vipers, Ferrari but Porsche ran off the GTR V8 M3's who whipped them last year. The Touring race is a mix of Acura Integra's, Mazda Protege's and BMW 3 Series. This is a shorter track, so it might not suit the BMW power. The Touring race is on Saturday afternoon. I think the WC GT race happens after the ALMS race on Sunday. Jeff McMillin has a very competitive, and well prepared, M3 in GT and if he doesn't win races is near the front. Take a look at their web site for details.
They were, but the organizers wanted $15,000 for the space and tent. A little much. :thumbdwn:SteveT said:I'll be there. Will the NCC have a corral?
Too bad they wanted so much. I know they've been trying to pull this off for a long time and there seems to be inexperience showing. I hope it comes off ok. Have a good trip. There will be pictures.Pinecone said:

I was thinking of going, but my travel schedule changed and I will be in Windhoek, Namibia that weekend.
Have fun, post pictures.
If you have a general admission ticket, you can get a seat. I didn't know and I spent half the day walking around! Then I decided to ask one of the officials there and yes, even general admission ticket holders get seats! Its not covered and it was pretty hot and sunny today, but it was still a a lot of fun. Saw the qualifyings, and part of the Trans Am race. Going back tomorrow.. :thumbup:PhilH said:What did you think of the parking lot...er...race track?
Did you have seats? I'm going general admission. Can you see the track when you're walking around? Seeing as there's no elevation changes I'm not too hopeful about seeing much actual racing without a grandstand seat. Do the big screens show the action well? Was it crowded? Could I possibly think of any more questions?
