    Sorry for the delay in responding; The GTR's finally updated their site with course and registration info:

    Course: The course is just less than .7 miles and fast using 95% of the original race route (previously used Grand Avenue). Previous average speeds approached 24 mph with tops speeds around 40 mph. The race runs clockwise starting on Lighthouse heading west to Central Avenue for a right turn, then a big sweeper staying on Central. Racers follow Central then turn right on Fountain, up a slight hill then right on Lighthouse to the finish.

    I'm looking forward to this race!

    Be sure to stop by the Audi Best Buddies Challenge: Hearst Castle booth at the race expo. We are planning to have a bunch of cool raffle prizes!

    Thought I'd give this a bump.

    Ghost Tree Racing has updated its web site with a video of the crit course.
