I just checked your profile to see where you were from. What IMS are you talking about? I assumed you meant Indianapolis Motor Speedway (home of the "Greatest Spectacle in Racing--The Indianapolis 500"). I guess not, huh? You might have to pencil me out.
of course i mean Indy... or the Tony Geroge show, which ever you choose. not a big fan of his, after he ran off all the decent drivers an cars a few years back for his new "kill-a-driver-today-series"!
that price is very reasonable, considering the event. F1 tickets in europe can be several hundred to a thousand dollars! and compare it to the american le mans series race, that i'm going to at Charlotte on 4/1/00, it's not a whole lot more!

Whew!! Glad you meant Indy. I noticed in your profile that you're from SC (NC?) so I was wondering. One of us needs to give Tony-I'm-a-loser a call and see if we could get a group rate on the seats. We should all sit together, of course. I'll be able to afford $85 by summer, I'm sure. Can't right now, though. bHooper, are you gonna make the call? Or do I need to do it? I suppose we should see how many will be going 1st, right?

hey, this is F1... there was no way i am going to miss a race in the states! as for the ticket, if i have one available, it's yours for face value... no scalping here!
my goal for this year is to go to a sportscar race (or two), the F1 event, and possibly the MidOhio CART race.
i love NC, but it really sucks to live hear and like better forms of racing!
on the other hand, they are about to reopen Virginia International Raceway (yes, it is a road course!), as a country club/scca type thing.... think i'll be visiting that often, once i get my car in decent shape!
