This rain is frustrating. Friday was a wash out. Saturday, no word yet from FIA what the schedule will be.

Qualifying may go today otherwise tomorrow before the race. Download the COTA and check out Twitter for updates.

Saw a couple of tweets. Looks like they are running FP3 in the rain. Probably going to head over soon.

We are continuing to prepare the grounds to safely accommodate our guests. FIA has elected to run FP3, however we will open at noon.

We're currently planning to head that way and be there around noon. If it starts to monsoon again, I think we're going to some wineries and a sports bar, no reason to be miserable.

I got my diesel stuck in lot F parking lot last night, so much for psl parking. Fortunately I had a tow strap and a lot attendant pulled me and the guy next to me out with his JD Gator.

Parking lot T closed and instructed to go to Q. Expect shuttle buses to be in place otherwise the ticket sales rep will have hell to pay. Lol.

If they can't run qualifying, they'll use results from FP3 for starting grid.

We are at turn 1 section 2 row 27. Tinkabell and her hubby are at turn 15. Nice people. We are going to get there by 9. Hopefully it will somewhat dry.

Saturday's tickets will be redeem-able for Sunday tickets.

I texted snake to see if he and Enzo were interested, no word yet, but if anybody's interested let me know.
