Bring a fishing rod. Sometimes they let you fish in lake lloyd while waiting to go on track. There are bass and catfish in the lake and other stuff. We had a great time fishing the lake and waiting for our turn to race at the Runoffs. There is good fishing all around the area. At times you can drive on daytona beach too. I have never driven on a beach so when I was there I had to go do that.

I'll be there serving as the Series Leader/Director for Super Touring 1-3. I wish I was joining the racing action, but glad to be contributing to the event and sport somehow (as much as I often want to walk away from it all, I get dragged back in). We have a great group of people putting this event together. There's not as many cars in super touring as I would have hoped to see, but it should be a great series of races.

Alex,

You should take extra time and track your way back to cali. Find other NASA events or SCCA events or Hooked on driving etc. Drive Sebring and Homestead Road Atlanta , Barber. There is nothing more fun than racing new tracks. My most fun 2 weeks of the year is when I get to race homestead weekend then fish the week in the Keys then racing Sebring weekend and fly home.

It is not a bad idea...
For me every few years or so I'll do an EastCoast swing of SCCA Majors and then do the Runoffs. We just pick tracks we want to race. Sometimes we race a Regional like when we wanted to learn Daytona for the Daytona Runoffs. I like to eat foods of an area so love going to CoTA and eating the Texas BBQ and VIR to stop at Lexington BBQ in NC...PoBoys in NOLA. Then whatever water there I'm flyfishing freshwater or saltwater.

You have more flexibility in venue because your car is dual use. You can look at the online track's calendar and see Oct 30th CHIN is running and you can do that. Chin is also running VIR mid-october and Nov6th Sebring. MVP runs Road Atlanta mid November.
