Petit Le Mans 2020

Just ordered my ticket and parking pass. I thought it might be a good idea to get this done early in case they limit tickets as they have done for Le Mans.

I am not sure if I can get my brother to come along this year, he is super busy in Colorado but I know my dad would like to attend. Getting him there is going to be tricky logistically unless he comes here first and rides with me.

Speaking of rides, I will hopefully not be taking my old Mazda 3 this year. It has done the last 7 Petits but I said last year it was going to be its last trip. I thought it would be because I had a new 3 to take, but alas that isn't happening.

It’s annoying that this has ended up so close to Sebring now.

That is why I was never able to make the wec race in Texas, it was only 2 weeks before Petit and I couldn't make it work.

But that being said, will you make both?

I can’t really justify it. Maybe next year. Perhaps Petit and not Sebring. Although one of the advantages is I have a friend who comes over as he works for one of the WEC teams. It was always good to catch up with him at Le Mans and I hoped to do the same at Sebring. But if they are seven months apart and I do need to justify the tent I bought.

Hmmm, yeah, maybe that's a good idea. broad has a annual pass and has only seen two broke F1 Ferraris and maybe Boris Said turn a few laps. Maybe a comp for next year? Same with buying PLM tix now?

I'm still not getting any hopes up for anything and then if it happens; YAY!

I've been hoping my brother comes back and sleeps in his coffin again, but unless shat happens or something drastically changes with my job, the van, with 50 yr anniversary IMSA sticker, rides again!

The SCCA event at the end of this month is closed to spectators. MotoAmerica will allow folks as normal justa wekk after. Seems this would be backwards, ATM, but perhaps it's an SCCA policy?

https://www.roadatlanta.com/events/event-schedule

Ugg, just looking at the ticket sale site, they're calling it MPLM, not PLM...and it looks like they've gone up in tent camping prices, again. Come on, Bib! Pay your bills!

We could change to the title of the thread to 2020 Atlanta GP Plus MPLM @ Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta....

I'm not sure I'm gonna make the Labor day event or not. Already have family plans. We'll see, but one thing is for sure; it's gon' be hot on Labor day weekend!!

scottypinthemix should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
we'll be heading to the 6 hours sat/sun.
not sure yet how many of us.
A lot of our GA bunch live an hour'ish from the track so we'll prolly drive up early each morning.

Haven't even given any thought to PLM yet.
We just pushed our RV rental for Sebring from November out to 2021 in March. Not sure if we'll be making the trip down for November or not.

This year is sh!t.

I think the labor day event will be a good dress rehearsal for Petit. I'm guessing fan count will be down, but maybe some will choose the first event over the second potentially keeping Petit numbers lower too.

The fam booked a weekend at the lake well before the GP was announced so I'm likely gonna miss it. Sounds like camping is minimal at the GP and the schedule is a little funky but I may drive over for a day, get a ticket at the gate, ride my bike around the track and watch cars.

But yeah, Scotty, this year has been the pits but at least the weather is likely our least concern, amirite? Hope you and yours are well!!

Those shirts are in good shape. All my old shirts are in tatters.


I got this email from the track regarding rules for this weekends race. Not sure if the same will apply for Petit

Quote:
As a special note, all guests should be aware of a few measures in place for the safety of all fans, teams and staff in attendance:

All guests will be required to bring and wear face coverings when interacting with those outside of their group
Guests will be screened prior to entering the event gates; initial screening will include questions regarding current health status and potential exposure, as well as a non-contact temperature check
Strict adherence to the CDC-recommended 6’ social distancing will be mandated onsite
Individual bottles of hand sanitizer will be provided to guests upon entry
Multiple handwashing and hand sanitizing stations will be placed throughout the facility
A “Clean Team” of staff will be cleaning and disinfecting restrooms and other public areas throughout the weekend
Both the infield paddock and Tower Paddock are off-limits to guests
No autograph sessions or public gridwalk will be available
No shuttles will be available - all infield parking is free

I guess that's what happens when you wear them!

It probably will, if not be even more strict. Numbers here are really odd right now and hard to gauge 2 months, but I think it'll be similar.

I've been talking with Adam Ellis at the track trying to get a feel for what we'd be allowed this weekend and trying to gauge the safety and reasonable behavior. He claims Petit is still scheduled to have all the usual rules and tickets sold will be honored. There's no plan to refund and lock out fans who've purchased camping passes.

This weekend the full track is open for fans but camping is limited. The mask rule was dialed back from all times in the property to the Daytona rule of outside of your area it seems. He would not let me have anyone outside of my family join my camping area and all campers outside of season pass holders were stuck in the "backstretch" camping areas in your assigned space. The paddocks are closed and they expect again for Petit as well, guess we'll miss the 45 min call to clear the grid this season. Media is even limited and blocked access to the paddock again as per IMSA.
