Runoffs?  Good idea.  Sorry Chris...not enough notice for me.  Last event of the year would be doable, unfortunately Castrol and Gimli are on same weekend in Sept.  Maybe August?  I don't mean to be a downer on this, but we should have planned this when setting up Gimli's and Castrol race schedules for the season.  There was likely many things in motion that just didn't come together in time.  But I fear this event won't be attended by many folks outside of Manitoba because of the short notice.

Cheers.

Yeah it's a shame about all the overlap this year, but have to play the cards we're dealt.  I'm sure it will still be a good time!

I'm in.  Hearing additional 10 cars from Alberta so far.  I would expect that to grow as we near the June 25th date.

Plus, same weekend as Azerbaijani Grand Prix, the premier race in F1. What a colossal cock-up!  :P

J/K, I'm about 95% certain I'll be in for this weekend.

I'd like to go but unfortunately I was the last person to book vacation and my boss and my juniors all booked the week leading up to the race off.  Good luck to everyone who makes it out.

Fly in fly out?  I bet we can find someone to drive your rig out.

So I registered for the race and got this info in my confirmation:

"Don't forget to fill in and sing your log books prior to handing them in to the registrar."

This should be fun to watch...  8)

I've never been to Gimli before. Is there a favourite hotel that is near to the track?

We are staying at the Lakewood Resort.  There are several hotels in Gimli, and more a little further away.  Type this into Google Maps: hotels motels near gimli motorsports park
