        Holy cow, I've never heard of this event. Sounds neat! I'm going to have to try and work some things out to make it. Is there is a deadline for entry?

        Any other Formula D teams planning on attending? DA guys? Etc...?

          Griff, I tried to call you and sent you a PM, if you could call me back when you get a chance. We would really like to come but have a couple questions about the event.

                        Bad timing. FD final round is the weekend after. I wish I could have known about this earlier and arrange to go but it's a little too late now. It would be a lot better if the event is in September or the event would be in California.

                        Good luck and have fun for the people who are going!

                          i saw the faq page, thanks, it answered my frequently asked questions perfectly. THANKS!!

                            No problem ...

                            Thank you, everyone, for the overwhelming interest and response. My phone and email have been going insane since this post.

                            I'm sincerely sorry that the misinformation about the event being 'cancelled' was mistakenly put out there, but that's something that the event never stated. I encourage you to keep looking for a way to be at the event - it is certain to be one to remember.

                            I've updated the faq on the site to answer some of the most common questions people have been calling or emailing with.

                            Thank you again for your interest.

                              The FAQ has been updated to address questions regarding:

                              - late arrivals
                              - registration payment
                              - track safety

                              Also, a preliminary version of a radio spot promoting the event can be found at the audio link on the revised front page.

                              Finally, by clicking the event logo at the top of any page, you will return to the home page.
