Exclamation Laguna Seca SBW gathering.

OK,
We're just about 6 weeks out from the event. Let's try and get some sort of body count on whos planning to make it. This way we can figure out what kind of festivities can be planned.

I have 3 RV's coming down and likely another 4-5 riders. We have sites in the Chaparral campground above turn 5.

Please post a note if you intend to make the race, with how many other folks in your party, and where you intend to camp.

I'm driving the RV down with my wife and little girl. One of my buddy's is bringing a fun mover and another couple is bringing the pick-up/camper with their little race fan.

I understand there's a big contingent from Bakersfield coming up and quite a few from the Bay area.

Nice thing about the RV, I can carry lot's of finely crafted adult beverages & food

Cool

I and my husband will be there for Saturday and Sunday. 6 weeks?!? That's WAY too long to wait!

I will be driving down in a rental getting to the track about 0030 on Friday morning.

I have no idea where I will be camping. Any reccomendations? I will be sleeping in the car or a one man tent .

I am going to be there ALL weekend and cannot wait. I hope the racing is as good as it was at Road Atlanta two weeks ago.

You'll need to contact Laguna pretty quickly to see about pre-purchasing "F" general camping. Also you need to hit the gate, with a ticket and camping pass before midnight, 'cause they close up the gates (according to published info)

You can contact Laguna at:
(800)327-7322
or www.laguna-seca.com

I recommend you call them, with credit card in hand

Do not delay.

See you there.

I already have camping pass. Bought it when I got my tics. Also, when I asked the lady she said the gates would be open all night. Maybe for this race they break the rules. If not. I am in the backseat snoozing until they open in the AM.

I assume you already got your passes and tix. The camping info and track location map should have been with them. If not, you can get PDF files from their website. The general camping area is over by turns 10 & 11.

I never know how tight the staff will be about the "rules". Sears Point staff told me emphatically, that "Gates close at midnight!". Naturally, they were open all night and the gate attendant simply waved folks through. Go figure.

Coming from the east coast, you're going to be pretty zonked, so please be careful driving! I'll try and finalize locations with you and you're welcome to stagger over in the morning for a proper cup of "sailor's coffee"

HOTCARL: is your crew camping at the track? If so, where.
Thanks,
