Parking at Road Atlanta

Recommended Posts

Firebird Man

Looking at the map I see AI is up on the hill, what's the preferred way to park a rig up there?

Last time there I saw some straight, some at 90 degrees to the track.

 

Once I unload I could back my 20 footer up to the rail and unhook the truck, park the car on one side and the truck on the other, makes a decent pit but takes three slots, but long ways it takes up about the same and is a PITA to get in/out.

Any power up there?

 

And what is FFR? Fred and Falcons Refuge?

FFR is Factory Five's.

 

If you need any help moving your rig, let me know, I still have my CDL Class A and love to practice.

This is a fair issue to address. That last thread got locked prematurely.

 

For many of us the most important thing about a race weekend is the socializing. Maybe if I was faster, the racing would be important too. An important ingredient to socializing is being able to park with your in-class buds. Well, unless you don't like the others in your class.

 

At CMP last week the SpecE30 parking area was changed such that it was put near the new false grid. But by Friday mid-morning there was no more space there because most folks didn't pay any attention to the parking plan and there was no control measure in place to encourage them to do so. The result was that only me and other SpecE30 enduro types arrived in time to park where we were supposed to. So most of us were 300yds away, which is no way to create social critical mass.

 

There's going to be times when you're an early arrival and you blow off the parking plan because it just doesn't work for you. But that should be the exception, not the norm.

 

The parking plan keeps social groups together. It's a good thing.

 

Re. Control measures. Maybe the registration office can ensure that every arrival is handed a parking picture. And both Registration and Track guardshack and look each Thur and Friday arrival in their beady little eyes and say "Be sure to look at the parking plan".

Please can some offical from Nasa, maybe jim or Julie, maybe Will or Nevit, maybe Brandon... someone please direct people who do not know how or where to park. I suggest color coding badges so that everybody who are friends can park and pal around together. Do this at the main gate.

 

 

 

Thank you in advance.

WTF? You have me lock a thread about parking at RA and then you start another one?

Just for that I am gonna unlock the one I locked

 

McM

Take that!

 

P.S., I think only those ACTUALLY racing at RA should comment on the parking issues.

I got to CMP on Friday afternoon only to find that the there was no space at the GTS inn, mainly due to being over run by spec e30 cars. So, I parked across the way, next to some AI and other cars and met some new friends, imagine that.

 

I vote that Fred be in charge of parking. He can pit people together who would not normally socialize with one another. Just imagine a world where Porsche guys spoke with Miata drivers, and AI guys socialized with fart cans (I mean Honda's). All of a sudden, the world might just be a better place with much less "auto" racism
