Fantastic!

Advice to anyone considering attending - find and book a hotel NOW!!! Our block of rooms at the Hotel Corque is sold out. There alternatives in Solvang, Buellton and Santa Ynez, but this is popular time of the year and rooms go quickly. So, book a room and if you change your mind you can always cancel your reservation.

Cheers,
Kiyoshi

We seen recommendations from folks for the Best Western in Wasco. Others have stayed at the Motel 6 in Lost Hills or I5 & Hwy 58. There's not a lot of choices...

It will be like a private track day! About 40 drivers are signed up. You'll be able to drive until your arms start dragging on the pavement!
