    they sold out to makes and models... but if you get there early enough you can get in for free... starting last year they did the 10 bucks thing... the other times were free.
     
  7. I'd imagine you'll get quite a few ALMS racers there as Sebring is this weekend, and then they race in St. Pete the weekend after this event.
     
  8. not really, at least in the past (i've only been twice before), they only had 1 ALMS car, it was the champion audi r8r
     
  9. I'll be in attendence!
     
  10. so will I
     
  11. I've got a friend in St. Pete who I hardly see. Maybe I'll go as an exuse to hang out with him afterwards.
     
  12. if ScorpioFerrari goes, we could make it a SC.net car show get together.
     
  13. We never got a chance to do that last time. I kinda lamed out on that one because I hung out with some friends instead. That'd be entirely up to him though; whether or not he wants to hang out with me and my stoner friend until I'm ready to drive back toward Orlando. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
     
  14. as i recall, you said you lived around 15 min away from him. if you drive him, he minas well go, free trip <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/wink.gif"></A>

    I might have to leave as early as 4AM to get there around 9 or 10 so I can get some shots of cars being unloaded or driven up to their spots.
     
  15. You going to the Jetport reception?
     
  16. I would, but since i only work 1 day a week, IE Friday, I can't. I was able to take off for amelia island (by lying) but not for this. work 1-10 so... But i'll be there as early as I can on saturday and stay till around 6
     
  17. I'm taking 2 of my Z cars look me up, I won't be hard to find.

    Roger
     
  18. what color? we could meet at your cars... but i'm gonna be taking a lot of pics the whole day- especialy between 12-2

    PS- is one of the cars dark blue and with a supercharged V8?
     
  19. That's mine. Did you take that at FOS Orlando?
    I'll also have the Primadonna (White car) there.

    Rog
     
  20. yep, I took that in 2006. Alright, i'll see you around that car.
     
  21. hey disord3r, I could actually meet you on I4 or near it at a rest stop, I should be passing orlando around 6 or 7 but i dunno if you are leaving that early, to convoy.
     
  22. Well last year was the first time the ALMS raced there, so maybe they'll have more there this year.
     
  23. That would probably be way early for me. It only takes me about 1 1/2 hrs to get there, so I'd likely be leaving around 8:30 or 9. I wouldn't even be awake when you're passing through. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
     
  24. so when should everyone meet by that blue Z? I guess around 1ish or 2ish
     
  25. if i do meet ya'll, its not really gonna be for long, id rather be solo and getting pics like I usually am.
