still haven't decided what class I'm goign to run so that will determine my arrival time.
if I run SM, it's in the morning (I think).. I'll be there around 8am..
if I run in the afternoon, I usually show up around 10 or so and grab a few rides from someone to learn the course.
yeah, it's free... just get to gulf greyhound park however you get there.. go to the entrance on the east side of the park- it's on FM2004. basically go south at the stoplight at the NE corner of the track. you'll see a gate over there with a big SCCA banner on it. sign the waiver there and go on in. don't forget to put on your wristband, so just in case you get run over by someone it's not our fault- you signed the waiver.
you can register at the event as well, but they charge a few bucks more, and you have to basically take a provisional spot and hope the grid isn't full. I'm goign to just show up anyway and get in when I can..
I just walked right up and registered yesterday. The attendance was so low, we all got 5 runs and STILL got out of there by 5:30. I was home by 12:30 in the 1st quarter of the stuporbowl, and I even stayed to help to clean up the auto X course after the runs were over!
