A little late starting this thread.

But, here's the Course Map! Seven, count 'em, SEVEN crossovers! But, you won't even notice most of them.

It looks like I double registered when I went to change my early session to afternoon?

I did, I removed my early session and changed it to "both" and I am only being charged for both sessions and not early + both which is correct, but it shows me on there twice for early. Should have clarified it was changing from early to both, not early to afternoon.

I like the grid/timing set up like this. Not sure why, but it just feels better this way....

I could. The time continued displaying until the next car finished, allowing you to get to grid to read the time.

I like it logistically. People don't have to walk past the grid and start to get from the parking area to the trailer. And it's easier to get around the end of the grid to get to the restrooms. And it gives us plenty of marked spaces to use for grid. And it puts the start right in front of the trailer, making it easy to see car numbers. Just lots of little things that are good about it.

And, if you looked, you could see your time on the display after you made the 90-degree turn after the finish chute. 8-)

I signed up for the late session in Bill's car, but Bill won't be there.
I was under the impression I was co-driving with The Mayor, but he hasn't signed up yet.
As such, I might need to call in a raincheck from one of you generous souls who've offered to share your car... Time will tell.

Steve, you could even drive my Miata, though I'm not sure I can tolerate finishing yet another position down!

Registration closes Wednesday, btw. That being Christmas day... Maybe you should make sure you're registered today, so ya don't forget?
