Yes, I will be there all day Friday/Saturday @ the Porsche Corral/Porscheplatz....I will be hanging around the "Flying Lizards Porsche Team" paddock!

Have it posted on the Babblers calendar. I would not miss this race, last year in Oct was pretty exciting!!

That is exactly what I am wanting to do. Where did you get your tickets? I sent an email to Sharon just a few hours ago. Also where is everyone staying? Sounds like a fun time

We made reservations for Friday night a long time ago at the Beach Resort just minutes from the track. Beach Resort is close to the Embassy Suites on Canyon Del Rey Blvd off Highway 1..from there it is straight to the track.

Hotels fill up fast! We have learned in the past to make reservations well in advance (like a year) to get the best rate. If you plan to stay the night start searching soon for a hotel.

Porscheplatz/Corral ALMS Tickets were purchased online on the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca website.

A0910I3DAY-BCP 3-Day Admission & PorschePlatz Car Corral Pass - ALMS
PORSCHE ONLY CAR CORRAL PASS AND 3-DAY ADMISSION TICKET, vehicle will not be allowed unless it is a PORSCHE into this car corral area, you will be directed to general parking. Space is limited, Maximum 150 cars.

Contact the Laguna ticket office (1-800-327-7322) for tickets or online
Be sure to specify “Porscheplatz Corral” when ordering tickets.

Friday is a good day...kinda quite, see practice laps and good way to meet the teams and car drivers.
If one day...I would go on Saturday to see the ALMS race...Flying Lizards Porsche Team and other Porsche teams.

GERRRRRY!! and Elena....lets hook up on Saturday for sure! Can't wait to see both of you. You have my cell #

Be sure to go to Flying Lizards and TRG (The Racers Group) and Falken Tire, I will be over by the paddock/pit area most of the day and at the Porscheplatz tent/corral area on the other side of the bridge/track.

BTW, I am planning on doing the Porsche parade lap on Sat @ 11:50 am - 12:15 pm around the track, be sure to take pictures, look for me!!
