I was thinking about the trees but missed the ground cover!

Also no icicles....

Ok, 8th it seems.

RX7Mandingo should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
What's garage access like at RA? Is it as open as Daytona is, or if needed can you get special garage access passes?
Since I'm coming up early Thursday I thought it'd be neat to check out the Mazda IMSA car and see how friendly the drivers and crew are.

Flight has ended up being the 9th. So that’s a bit of a pain. Less of a scenic journey and more of a blast down there. Still, worse things happen at sea.

Open paddock, it's a hill down to it but good walk we usually do at least once.

Mazda had usually been the most open, they used to actually have an open walk in to their "garage" area between the cars instead of being fenced outside it. It's mostly the Weathertech cars on the inside of the track with the Challenges, Porsche and Mx-5 cars on the "support" side. Many of the teams have their swag tents by their haulers too. No garages at Road Atlanta so all hauler and canopy

Yeah, it's a bit of a drive. Was most of the day from SWVA to Atlanta and think it was 5ish from Northern Virginia to Blacksburg.

Looks like 11 hours. Going to do it 8 hours Wednesday, followed by 3 hours on Thursday.
I'll probably be doing a lot of the driving as Dad will be a little jet-lagged. Probably be an early start each day too.

My brother has confirmed he'll be there Thursday evening. He's planning on parking outside so he'll be traveling light, as we'd expect. I'll have some extra gear for him as needed.

Camping in the tiny bivy sack under the rear deck of the Apache? Didn't he have that little sleeve tent with a couple sticks years ago?

Probably smart to get to the track during daylight hours. I really don't know what crowds will be like this year with the race weekend so much later. but arriving after dark to a new place only adds stress. My first Petit (back in 2003) my dad and I met at the track after both driving from different places. I had to wait outside the track and watch night practice for a couple hours while he made his way to the track. Then we had to setup camp in the dark, not a lot of fun after driving all day!

Last couple of years with Peach Pass have helped tremendously! I'll have it again this year and am hoping for the best.

This is the exact reason I'm leaving Jacksonville at 4am Thursday. Luckily I can hop on 285 to bypass Atlanta and hopefully miss all the traffic

Go around on the east side but 285 is traffic, and then 85N is always slow just to warn you.

O yeah I'm coming up 75n then picking up 285 around Atlanta to the east. Google maps is saying the drive should be 5.5 hours from Jacksonville. Leaving at 4am hoping i can get there and setup and still be able to see most the on track festivities Thursday, and maybe do some chefing
