Georgia ½ Mile Private Runway Shootout September 22nd, 2012!!

4 August 2000
Atlanta, Georgia USA
This is the same event as the Carrabelle Airfield event in Florida. This time it is in Georgia and e have 3 NSXs participating.

A few people have expressed coming along just to watch so I wanted to make a post for them. I am not sure but I think most people will be leaving early in the morning to drive up there for the event EARLY (6:00AM) but I think the event starts at 9am for spectators. It is a 1.5 hours from Atlanta and the drive is pretty nice.

So who would like to join?
