Road Atlanta in October

I have October 1-5 inked off on my calendar for Road Atlanta this fall. I know we haven't completed the Dream Cruise yet, but are there any details out there yet, Bruce? I thought I saw something on the Forum earlier in the year, but I can't find it......

Rich, Kathy and I will be heading to Road Atlanta for Petit Le Mans, Oct.1-5. I think Larry and Nate will be joining us. I have mentioned to Kurt the idea of having a Cadillac parking corral like last year. It is a great race (10hrs or 1,000 miles),if you liked Mid-Ohio you'll love this race. Maybe you and some other XLR owners will make the trip.

If anyone was thinking of joining us: Order your tickets NOW (before the 19th) if you want them mailed to you; otherwise, you'll have to wait in line at Will Call.

Be sure to get the infield parking pass if you want to be with your fellow XLR owners!

Paul and I already booked our hotel, which took some time, as many of the closer properties are sold out. Buford and Lawrenceville still has rooms available. The racing teams also stay in those cities from what the hotel clerks are telling me. The drive to the track is only 15 minutes or so. Sounds like a lot of fun. You don't have to go for all 4 days, I think the few going from the forum will arrive Wednesday afternoon/evening and leave late Saturday or early Sunday. Ticket prices are very reasonable. The cars should be a blast to watch and listen to. Quite the racetrack! But even if some folks want to join for a day or even 2 would be a blast! If anyone needs ideas/suggestions on hotel rooms, or need help booking them let me know.
B & K, Rich and Larry, we will see you all there!
Hopefully a few more can join the racing festivities!! Mea

Mea, I'm glad to hear that you and Paul will be joining us. I know you will love the racing and getting to spending time with your XLR friends. It would be great to have some more XLRs join in. Maybe we can get Dave and Cathy to drive down from WI.

I'm glad to see that Paul & Mea will be joining us at Road Atlanta. We would love to see other XLRs in the Atlanta area join us for a weekend of great racing and fun times!

Deadline for Ordering Advanced Tickets Online is at 5:00 PM EST on 09/26/2008
Tickets will be sold at the gate for a little bit more than the online prices. Chalet tickets are almost sold out, and they are not available for purchase at the gate.

I received an email from Andy Pilgrim and he is looking forward to seeing our group @ Road Atlanta. He said to stop by the haulers and say Hi.

It's a guaranteed stop! Will there be any jobs for us to do there? We did so well at Mid-Ohio!

PS Be sure to bring our "Poster Child"!!

PPS Take good care of that Broadview Heights Coupe de Ville, Bruce - he lives just "around the corner" from me!

Reminder to all!



Johnny O once again will be putting on his charity auction. It will be Friday night at 6:15 PM and will be down in the main paddock at the winners podium.



Lots of teams will be bringing gear, parts, all sorts of stuff. Johnny will have all kinds of cool things that will make it a fun event.



Help support the Alzheimer's Association. Hope to see all of you there!

I got an email from Robin with Corvette Racing and they may need our help. Our "Cadillac Crew" did such a good job @ Mid-Ohio with the posters that we may be working @ Road Atlanta. It should be fun.

There is going to be some cool race stuff @ Johnny's auction on Friday evening at the track. All of the race teams donate things like race suits,gloves,helmets and parts from the race cars. Andy Pilgrim I'm sure will donate some of his Cadillac gear or parts from the CTS-Vs. Our friends @ Katech are bringing down raced engine parts. Bring plenty of money (cash or plastic), it all goes to charity. I think Johnny has raised 300,000 in the last 8 years. It is a lot of fun to watch.

track shoes

Just a suggestion...
For those that are attending Petit LeMans this weekend, I would suggest bringing older tennis shoes to wear at the track. Georgia's soil is orange clay and it will make whatever you are wearing...orange. You might also want to put something on top of your floor mats in your car.
