Ha, none of that for me, I'll probably be one of the few people who can say that

Well, if you can't walk, you may be able to get a ride on one of these. I am certain the drivers will be sober:

I'd be interested in meeting anyone from here. Friday night might be a good time, right after the races end.

On Thursday after night practice, they'll be showing Le Mans (the movie) on the big screen by the midway. They also show the race broadcast on the big screen and it's a good way to check up on how things are going Saturday night when all you can see is one turn and headlights.

And speaking of the midway and following the race, when I went to testing I noticed they were installing speakers on the light posts along the midway so it looks like they will finally have some sort of P.A. system in place other than just behind the pits.

Never had so much hassle trying to get tickets, seemingly they are incapable of selling to non-US addresses even though I'll be picking them up at the circuit anyway. Physically won't let me continue without a US address!

I'd agree that Friday after track activities would probably be a good time to meet up. Should we meet at a campsite somewhere, or a public area somewhere? I think meeting at the manufacturers exhibit area and then going for a paddock walk and checking in on the activities of the mechanics would be a good time, what do you all think?

And just so that no one is too surprised. Away from the racetrack I am a fine, upstanding, responsible member of society. However, (and this is especially true at Sebring, and there are folks in this thread who can attest to it) I have been known to let my hair down when camping at the race track. Please do not be overly offended if I slur my words or stumble a bit.

Hey guys been to VIR the past 4 years and made it down to PLM in October and this will be my first trip down to sebring. We have the infield parking pass and im just wondering where is the good spot to set up shop with the chairs before the walking and is there any screens around the track?

I can attest to this being a true statement!

It's called being Hard Core (or crazy, possibly obsessed).

Are you camping, or just parking? Just asking in the event you are also trying to determine where to camp.

As for where to put your chairs, there are a few spots to consider:

Turns 3-4-5 area.

Turn 7, the hairpin, across from the hotel.

Turn 10

As far as I recall there are only two big screens, one being at the Spring Break party area, the other being at the aforementioned hairpin.
