REGISTRATION IS CLOSED

Yet again The Mid Ohio Sports Car Course has offered us a S2000 car corral and the chance to give the Indycar Series drivers a ride in our cars for the pre-race parade lap before the Sunday Indycar race on July 30. They are allowing me to invite 25 cars maximum to join in for the weekend, which will include at no cost (per car):
- Two weekend General Admission tickets
- Two paddock pass wrist bands (good for the entire weekend)
- Parking for your S2000 (and only your S2000)
- One event t-shirt

This will be just like the past few years - no decals or advertising before the race weekend. Just a chance to show off our S2000s in a Honda sponsored race.

Please PM me the following information (and if you format it exactly as written below, it greatly helps me cut/paste into my spreadsheet):
Name
Address
best phone # to reach you
shirt size
plate # (this makes it easier to get your car in order for the parade lap)

For example:
Homer Simpson
123 Fake Street
Springfield IL, 54321
770-555-0001
XXL
ABC 123

I'll assume you'll want the chance to drive an Indycar driver around for the parade lap - weather permitting...

Everyone keep the following in mind concerning the parade lap;
I and Mid OH are inviting more s2000s than we have Indycar drivers - so NOT EVERYONE WILL GET A DRIVER OR WILL DO A PARADE LAP.
Do the math. If you don't understand what i just wrote, then read it again. I don't know how i can make this any clearer. If you have questions about the above statement, then please ask them in a post below. Myself or others will gladly answer any questions for anyone who hasn't done this before.
i'm not trying to be a dick about this, i'm just being upfront about the fact.

To be considered for the lap, your car MUST:
- Be very clean
- Not banged up or in rough shape
- No roll bars, roll hoops, cages, etc...
- Have your secret compartment lid in place - this is for the Indy driver to sit on, and your passenger seat. Some drivers invite their wife, sponsor, or someone from a charity.

A couple of more rules regarding the lap:
- No passengers
- Age 18 or older with valid car insurance
- No passengers
- Willing to sign a waiver from Mid Ohio
- No drinking booze before the lap
- No passengers

Sometimes in the past, we get some VIPs to drive around too, or they'll let you go solo - but neither of these options is guaranteed to happen. So i cannot promise everyone will be able to drive on the track, either with or without anyone.

You don't have to be able to come all three days. Anytime during the weekend is fine. If you car doesn't meet the specs listed above, you can still join us anytime during the weekend, but you won't be able to do the parade lap.

I don't know where our parking spot will be yet, but i'll update that info once we get closer to race day.

I will place tickets in Will Call at the track. I don't mail tickets.

T-shirts will be handed out Sunday morning before the race starts. Usually around noon

The remaining spots are for folks who have not done this before, or haven't done this in a few years.

The remaining spots are NOT first-come-first-served. So put your name in the hat even if you think you're too late. Until I close registration; you still have time. When in doubt, put your name in. I'll keep this open for a couple of weeks.

If i think of anything else, i'll add it to this thread.
If you have any questions, ask them here in this thread because i don't online during the day too much and some others here can answer most of your questions.

Mocky started another thread for related discussions during that weekend. https://www.s2ki.com/forums/ohio-s20...hread-1174106/

a couple of you asked me to remind you when this thread opens up, but i've cleaned out much of message list, so i'm not 100% sure who you were. Sorry.

our parking spot hasn't been finalized, but Mid Ohio said there should be room for some other S2000s to park. Assuming they have an infield parking pass.
