Thread: COTA Regional Attendance

  1. #1

    COTA Regional Attendance

    Who's planning on racing the regional event?

    I was definitely going to do it, but after getting a non-drop DQ (blew minimum weight post 30 min race 3, my fault - still p'd about it) and screwing my season points I may skip and save the cash. Entry fees, tires, other consumables, hotel, unforeseen expenses all help keep credit cards under control!

    If it's going to be a great AI/CMC event I could be convinced to attend.

    Registration opens this Wednesday, the 14th.

    Saturday + Sunday - $1199
    Friday Test Day - $499
    Full Garages - $1000 for 3 days, 20 available

    EDIT: looks like we only get three races, copied from website below
    Race Format
    Tentative
    The format and run groups will be determined by registration.
    Typical daily format for these large events:
    HPDE/TT – 4 sessions/day
    Saturday - Practice - Qual – Race
    Sunday - Qual - Race - Race

    I had really planned on going, but dang $1200 and we only get three races? Maybe I will do HPDE for $300 less?

    Cody - just sign up as an instructor. I'll sign up for HPDE1 and we can drive around yelling at each other...come on, it'll be fun.

    I'm leaning against it. Three races for $1200.00 plus tires and that damn garage price.......Plus last year I paid a few hundred to park the RV even though around me paid nothing.

    I'm about 99% sure I will be there.
    What is everyone's thought on the garages vs parking on our own? With so much space there, we could all pit together in the area higher up by the bridge and have as big a compound as we want.
    What do y'all think?

    I was thinking the same thing. I can attempt to grab a garage, but I'd prefer we pit together if possible.

    Done!!

    But seriously they are just giving a discount to instructors, and they will have a waiting list for that. I love that they are having just one National again but sheesh this is ridiculous!

    I am all for a big compound, that way I can point to it and tell people that’s where the cool kids are.

    I'll be waiting to register due to some other possible family commitments. Even if I didn't have anything else I would probably wait. I would be interested to know the cost for Nationals before deciding as well.

    Having raced over Memorial Day I'll say the garages were great to have to be out of the sun all weekend when it was real hot. But they have doubled the price of the garage from $500 to $1000. Though they give the HPDE people the garage for $800. It's also great to be able to hang out on the trackside of the garage at night. But a group compound is always great.

    I think the deal killer for me is Sook and Martin getting DQ'd in R3 which moved me from 10th to 8th and screwed me out of $50 Toyo $$. Why did Martin get a DQ and what place did he originally finish?
