Robbie-
I just registered for the event and paid for a garage which was $250, not the $100 quoted in your post…. (is this the correct price?)

Please confirm garage rental is by the BAY, not the CAR (this is confusing to say this way) I will be having two cars in my garage I just rented.

looking forward to the event!

Garage pricing has been fixed. It will refund you the excess you paid.

The garage rental is for one spot within a bay, which fits two cars side-by-side. I dont think the garage spaces are big enough for tandem parking like Laguna or Sonoma. Its been a while, but here's an image... But if you want to try and fit two cars in that one slot, you're more than welcome too.

Don't refund me. I want a bay for two cars please. Typically garages are rented by the bay door, not the car which is why I asked.

Thanks

Robb,

I should have known that with your keen eye for the obvious you would pick up on the positivity in my post.
Your post stating that the last race had a 100% stated chance of rain with no actual rain at all. Combined with Sonoma race last year with a 60% stated chance of rain and it dumped rain proves the under lying message of:
The higher percentage stated chance of rain, the less likely it is to rain!
So when I posted the 90% chance of rain you knew what this really meant and that it really was a back handed positive post.

I can't sneak anything by you!
