    7 - Road Atlanta - Full - 12/05/2011

    The first possible issue I see is that Halloween is our second race. If anybody will still be out with their son or daughter at 10 PM EST (or out trick-or treating) let me know, but I fully plan to run that night.

    I hand picked the first race because it is a track familiar to most of us, that has some wide passing lanes. After that, it's randomized.

    Therefore 1 race per night? How many laps?

    20-25 depending upon track length.

    If I add in the Nordschleife (something we were considering last night) it would obviously be like 6 laps. But these are designed to get us around 45 minutes of racing time.

    What about 11 PM EST for Halloween? By then it will be completely dark on the left coast.

    I didn't know you work nights. No, not at all, is that a somewhat abnormal thing working nights though?

    I don't know about banishment, but I have a 3' length of garden hose that does wonders for worker morale. I'd be glad to let Hellisan borrow it.

    I work a night every 10 days.

    It's ridiculous but necessary.

    I used to work nights one week out of every 4. Kept me and my ex-wife alive.

    Working nights sucks... I don't have a set schedule at work, and it involves a mix of days and nights. It sucks, because it makes it hard for me to sign up for events like this.

    I'm definitely in. I can't miss another race, I had to cry myself to sleep last night.

    My index finger is getting better so I can at least use the throttle. I may have to use automatic though because my thumb still hurts like a bitch.

    I still have to figure out how to work in the Nordschleife. I know one thing, we will have a run-off so that there are no first-corner screwups... Any ideas? Extend the season? Cut out another race instead? In that case what would be the preferred one to cut?
