Just got word from Redman that my roadster has been accepted to race, so we will be coming out from Seattle. Anyone have the number for the Ramada? Is it close to the track?

See you there!

Ummm, I think it's a no brainer, if you can make the trip!! The last Rennsport Reunion was fantastic!!! Hershey happens every year, Rennsport only once in a while and who knows if they will do another one!

Cheers, James

I imagine that Hershey will consider switching to another weekend. I think the draw for the swap meet will be pretty low given that both events are on the same coast. Mark I can't wait to see 88 at Daytona!

Does anyone know anything about the La Quinta Inn in Daytona? Expedia has a good deal at that hotel, and it says it is near the Speedway. I don't need anything fancy, but I don't want to stay in a *****hole either.

Thanks.

We're talking about taking the race car and RV down as well. Anyone know if they are allowing RV's in the track?

Can you pull it up on mapquest? I think the LA Quinta is directly across from the main entrance, but I dont remember for sure. Its been a while since Ive been back to Daytona, but if thats the hotel its OK. There were not many ****holes right next to the track last time I was there. As long as you stay away from Ridgewood Ave (US1) the hotels in on the mainland in Daytona are usually pretty nice.

The official answer is, "They don't know yet."

I've been in contact with the folks at the speedway regarding this issue and they are quite frustrated with the organizers. It seems that they are sectioning off the infield for parking corrals and have not decided on the size and location of the corrals yet. The corrals will be segregated by model: 356s here, 911s there, 924s way over there, etc.

They have been getting many calls about RV parking and don't know what to tell people. I've been told that at a minimum they would expect to have RV parking in the West Lot. The West Lot is outside the speedway and it is quite a walk to the entrance.

The organizers are scheduled to be at Daytona on Thursday and Friday of this week. They are hoping to have a decision by Monday on RV parking. Hopefully, it will be in the infield.

I stayed in that little Ramada in back in 1980 for the 24 hrs race. That was a fun time...
