I sent David my contact information and will keep this group informed on what he sends.
Hey just wanted to say thanks for the interest you guys are showing for the event, it should really be worth the drive.

I posted some additional ticket info yesterday on the main site. Diane and I are getting together tomorrow to get organized and make some additional plans. We will also be setting up a sign up list on the main site, and I will let you know when that is up so you guys can get your names on there.

Thanks again for getting the word out.

David

I can't tell exactly what time the races are?
Do we drive down Thursday evening, Friday morning or when?
Come back Saturday evening or Sunday morning?

We do need to get some hotel rooms booked fairly quickly.

Any suggestions?

Both races will be on Saturday. I believe qualifying and practice will be on Friday. We are going to try and put together a cruise and dinner friday night, so if you can make it down Friday that would be good.

Give us a couple of days and I will put together a list of hotels close by the track that also have restaurants around.

I have a list of hotels provided by Road Atlanta today, but am having trouble putting it in the thread in the format they sent it in. Give me your e-mail address and I will forward you their e-mail with the attachment. I would suggest booking as soon as you can, because they probably will probably fill up for this. If you have problems finding anything from the list, let me know and we will find some additional places to try.

Also, I added a sign up list to the original post on our initial thread, so if you have any names of folks that are coming, please let me have them to add to the list. I am trying to get the list updated as soon as we can to show we have the 25 minimum to secure our own parking area.

Thanks,

David.

OK, I've got to hurry up and get Bertha finished and back together. I don't want to miss the trip down there.... I've seen that black ZL1 in my mirror a few times, and I don't think it will have a problem keeping up with any of us...

The best place we stayed on our trips to Road Atlanta was the Hampton Inn in Buford. Lots of restaurants next to it along with a huge shopping mall for the girls.

I just made reservations in Buford GA for April 19th thru 21st @ $99 per night ($94 with AAA membership) at Spring Hill Suites. Hampton Inn next door is sold out. Call 678-714-2150 for reservations as they still some rooms left. Mall of Georgia is across the street, which is supposed to be biggest mall in the Southeast. I suppose the girls will be going on this trip...

I want to be ahead of Dan if we get to take the Camaros on the course. I don't think he'll hold it wide open coming down to take turn 12...

Try again on Tuesday. They told me earlier this evening that they had "limited availability", so apparently they were very limited....

Try the following in Buford at the same exit: Courtyard, Country Inn & Suites, Wingate by Wyndham, Legacy Lodge & Holiday Inn Express.

Let me know if you need help with anything. Mall of Georgia is about 3 miles from my house, so I may be able to help you out with checking out hotels, etc.

Road Atlanta Hotels

Just FYI, there is a very nice Resort close to the track called Chateau Elan. I called this morning and we can get a group rate there (5 guarantees min.) For $ 189 plus tax. I know that is expensive, but it is a really nice Resort/Spa. As of this morning, they have rooms available. Let me know if you have any interest in this and we will work it out. Also check out their website so you understand the cost. This group rate is about $ 80 per night off the normal rate.

Does that mean we can stay there? How big is your drive way? Rooms hard to find.

Well, you can share a room with my son and 5 year old grandson, or a room with my daughter, fiancι and their Rottweiler

That means I will help you find a reasonable room

Here is the schedule listed in the Grand Am website. This is subject to change, because it is not posted by the track, who actually is running the race:
