This is a Q&A thread. I know a few of you have questions that get lost in the discussion thread. Please let's keep this one strictly informative only.

Thanks,

Chris

Nevermind Junkie, I found the information myself from the Holiday Inn's website. This link will show you the restaurants within 10 miles of the host hotel for anyone else curious like me.

For those who are driving the cars to the hotel/show do we know of any do it yourself car wash places near the hotel? I am still in the air if I am driving the Camaro or bringing her in the car hauler.

Jeff, what about flying out and just attending the fest without your car??

There will be plenty to do even if you don't drive. If my car isn't supercharged by then I won't be taking it either..... just an idea.

I'm rationalizing it this way, I'm saving a lot of miles by not driving it every day during the winter so all the miles to Georgia would be equivalent to someone driving theirs year round. See how that works!

A lot of us are bringing grills for late night munchies after the sponsored dinner at the track..

The mall is close too, tone so food places around. I don't know when somone would have the time to go to them though. Friday night meet and greet is held in the Hotel's Bar and Lounge that is attached and they have great food. Saturday food is covered at the track for drivers and Sunday is awards breakfast

We will start discussing the 2011 Fest In October of 2010

We are taking 300 drivers maybe more, we are working on the logistics of that. We want everyone to have enough track time..not just two passes..so as soon as we get a little over 300 drivers we are shutting it down for the driving portions. As many spectators can come as they want. The list is at 270Plus now but "garcmol" is going through it to see how many of those are actually going to get on the track.

Good idea on him flying out. Bad idea on not bringing your car without a supercharger. You could still bracket race or autoX without a supercharger.

I was absolutely AMAZED when Angelina and I went to Oshawa in October. ALL of our 'girl stuff' and her cleaning supplies fit nicely in the trunk.

Lots of room!

From what Junkie has said this parking lot is huge! It's a convention center. I have not seen it for myself but he said we should have plenty of room AND there is security too.
