Racing in Miami is almost as bad as driving in Miami. It just ain't worth it. If it wasn't a 9 hour drive, going to Athens would be a much better option.

Athens is only 6-7 hours. Shoot, you can just head north on 13th street until you get there.

To the OP: Kudos to Zmo for putting on what looks like might turn out to be a decent race. Unfortunately, they picked the wrong weekend -- who in their right mind organizes a race in the SE the same weekend as Athens???

It's not in Miami, these races are in West Broward County / Fort Lauderdale.

I don't think anybody from Jacksonville is going. Collective sentiment at last night's ride was its too far to drive, and it is unfortunate timing.

Understood.

I don't think I can handle racing both days.. Vista View on Saturday, and a big oval course on Sunday...

They've got cat 4/5 mixed on Sat, and individual cat 5 group for Sun.

Come on, its too late now, But we Miami folk have to drive to every other weekend of racing in the FPS series. A weekend in SoFla is better than racing in the middle nowhere for 40 minutes and then having nothing to do until the next race the next day. I'm be there. Of course its a 30 minute drive for me in Miami
