Just wondering if there were any other ALMS fans out there? Anyone going to the Petit Le Mans at Road Atlanta on Oct 6? There are lots of car clubs that park infield, any interest in a Supra meet at the event? Noticed a few southest Supra owners responding on this forum and hoped to spark some interest in some great racing and a get together.

I'll keep an eye out for your car. I have been there since the first PLM in '98, and it is awesome. Total sensory overload. Watching a million dollar prototype blast up the hill at turn 1 just about 40ft from you is incredible. Anyone who hasn't been should really go. Blow off NOPI and use the money for race tickets.
anyone interesed go to www.americanlemans.com
or email me and I'll give you details.

Sounds fun. I might like to go. i was invited last year, (I think it was last year) but couldn't go. Let's see if we can put something together. It's only about 35 minutes from my house.

At the last Petite Lemans, I looked for other Supras but didn't see a one. I am going in October. Wouldn't mind hooking up with other Supras at the infield.

To find out info on this go to www.roadatlanta.com they have the schedule and ticket info. It is $65 for a Superticket which is the only way to get admittance to the race for Sunday but it gets you there all days. I think that gets you in the paddock too which I never miss the opportunity to go down there and check out the prototypes up close. I am going. I have only missed one ALMS race at Road Atlanta since they have been putting them on. Great stuff.
As to meeting up with other Supras, the Porsche people have a "corral", so does Corvette and BMW. It would be nice if all the Supra owners could park together for our own whoopdedoo. I usually park in the "infield" on the right just after the crossover bridge into the infield. About 150 feet down. That was next to the Porsche club and across the infield road from the Corvette folks last year so maybe that is a good spot. I also like it because you are close to the track exit and don't get stuck in a lot traffic such as turn five and seven. What do you think?

CORRECTION!!!! SORRY. The Petit Lemans is on Saturday Oct.6th not Sunday. I didn't use to be that way. I keep forgetting. The Road Atlanta website is pretty lame and I went to go check the ALMS website www.americanlemans.com I think (didn't look today) but believe for the Saturday event only there may be a $45 ticket price. Whether that gets you into the paddock I can't recall. They are going to have a IMSA GTP historic race on Saturday. That is awesome. Those were and still are some of the finest racing machines on the planet!!! Toyota, Nissan, Porsche, Jaguar. Sorry for the bad info earlier.

OK here is the info. When you go into the www.roadatlanta.com site and scroll down to the Petit Lemans where it says "sunday racing has been added" you can click there to go in and look at ticket prices, order, etc. Saturday is the day of the Petit Lemans and the Historic IMSA GTP Race. Sunday is the Speedvision touring car race (lots of fender rubbing). Here is the general info:

General Admission (Sat.) $35 advance $45 gate
1 day Super ticket (Sat.) $45 advance $55 gate
(this includes paddock pass to pits)
4 day Super Ticket (w,t,f,sat,sun.) $65 Adv. $75gate.

I believe the only way to get Sunday is to buy the four day super ticket. Saturday is the main event but if you have the time, the speedvision races are close and physical!
If you have any more questions call Road Atlanta at 800-849-RACE See you there!
