Parking at Road Atlanta


Firebird Man

Recommended Posts

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

Just for that I'm parking next to you all weekend. With my fart can.

on a serious note - cliques are not fun. I really like how SE does a pretty good job of mixing everyone up from time to time. Meeting people outside your class won't kill you.

 

also - if you insist on parking your entire group together I'd suggest doing so in an undesiriable area of the paddock. That'll make it alot easier to get what you want

Kumbaya My Lord, Kumbaya!

 

Someone's singing, Lord, kum ba ya;

 

Someone's laughing, Lord, kum ba ya

 

Someone's crying, Lord, kum ba ya

 

There you go! That about covers the whole NASA paddock. Find you a place amongst one of these groups and you'll be right at home.

I just want to know the best way to park a rig up on "The Cliff"

 

As far as the rest of it goes, all I ask is don't save half the pit for someone that's not there yet. First come first serve.

 

I can talk Porsche, Vette, Mazda, Honda, BMW, VW, don't know what I'm talking about, but I can wing it.

I had a blast at CMP parked by two Beemers on one side and an AMC on the other.

Next thing you know, you'll be asking us to let AWD cars into the Corvette camp.

 

Fvk you! I don't want none of that rif-raf around my sheet molded compound machine. Damn, I've got standards....not very high, but standards, nonetheless!

Clearly a result of segregation! It is time to integrate parking for the sake of our future and that of our children.

the great thinker (or is that stinker?)

This coming from the guy who just left camp?

Hanging on by a thread.

 

You coming to RA? We need to talk!

 

Threads merged, thanks Ken.

if only I could somehow merge my way into a bit more fundage and a bit more vacation time so I could make this one I'd park over at Lanier Speedway across the street if I had to!!

I'm not saying that SpecE30 is lilly-white. But if you mean near the CMP tower, then the parking map didn't get checked. That was SpecE30 country this last event. Or at least it was supposed to be.

 

I'm not suggesting we need to get all draconian about this, institute an enforcement mechanism, and make parking a pita. I'm just saying that folks need to be aware of the parking plan and it would be good if folks got a reminder when they show up. Folks can then decide where they want to park, but at least it will be an informed decision.

Hard to complain about that. You guys generally have a cooler of beer about in the evening and a pot of coffee in the morning.

I think this is the first thread I've ever seen locked, well except porn threads.

I locked it first (at Fred's request) then unlocked it when he started one of his own. THEN, thanks to Ken B's advice, merged all 3 parking threads together hence the 5 pages.
