I see Joe has made it 18 entries for Indy.
He should be a favorite to win!

Looks like just the 18 of us.
Let's try to get to the Adhoc meeting to say hi to each other, and show we are engaged.
Not sure I have met most of you from Central and from the East coast.

I agree with Collin, let's all make an effort to get to the GT meeting.
We should also talk to each other about the future of our class. How about getting together and throwing out some ideas? Maybe we could get a GTL member to come and talk about what they did to rejuvenate their class?
GT1 and GT3 are tied for the lowest number of cars in their fields.
Both are AWESOME classes with many quality cars throughout the country. We need to talk about how to get those existing cars back out and also how to attract more entry level cars/drivers into our class.

GT3 is tied for 3rd lowest entries.
Formula Continental and Formula Mazda are lower.

Also total entries have dipped below 1000 now as people drop out.

I am in getting ready and loaded mode like everyone else. Just finished getting all of my production engine and car customers taken care of.( I hope). I will be arriving Saturday at Indy and will be with Young Racing (Chris Young) in spaces 40/41 in the South Paddock next to the false grid. Please feel free to stop by and chat if you have the opportunity. We ALL need to show up at the GT meeting.

John,
I've spoken with many GT3 competitors over the last couple of years on what I've done in GTLite for the past couple of decades. If GT3 competitors want to talk about solutions, come look me up at Runoffs.

Peter is THE MAN for getting GTL to where it is today, follow his plan and you will see bigger fields.
