There -will- be a corral for attendees, not sure on the details...I
actually need to talk to the NEQ eventmaster(Mike Caleo) on that
point(LRP offered up to set aside parking, I volunteered to organize
that part, I think Paul Royal did too but I can't remember :-)
Details that need to be worked out include who will be let in, where
it will be, etc...I'll post more as soon as I talk to Mike about it.

What better way to welcome in "The Season" than to spend the day in
the Valley of the
Gods? If you've never been to Lime Rock Park, you're missing
something special in the
world of motorsport. The location of the hospitality area is at "The
spectator hillside viewing the exit to Big Bend with cars heading
straight toward our
guests before negotiating the Left Hander and No- Name Straight.)
This location also gives guests the
quickest access route to the Paddock area and other entertainment
options in the Park.
The NEQ Hospitality tent will include Service Tables for caterers to
supply food and
beverages at individual's expense. Audi S4 drivers Galati and Bell
should be available
for an autograph session with Audi promotional memorabilia.
We are offering two ticket options. Please note these are very
favorable compared to "normal" LRP tickets(and you get much more!)
