I signed up a couple hours ago but haven't received a conformation email yet.
For those of you in SoCal, I signed up for the 9am slot if y'all want to try and go at the same time.

Too far away for me to make it there and back in a day. Wish it were closer.

Got my confirmation for 9am Dodger Stadium. DreamInPixels, looks like I'll see you out there! I got maybe a couple hours drive but I'm sure it will be worth it!:thumb:

I signed up for 11am. We'll have to meet up.

I wonder if the Pats will be practicing that day...

Well I guess that puts the July release date to rest. It says that "drive the ST before anyone else before it's out" The last event is 8/11 so looks like end of August will be the earliest we will see ours.

I saw that too. O well. At least it gives more time for everyone to save up for a nice down payment. (and some of us to learn how to drive manual.)

Guess Ford thinks that those of us who live in Southeast are NASCAR buffs with little interest in European-styled, smaller, affordable performance cars. Atlanta metro is bordering on a population of 6 million people - and our closest event is DC (640 miles)! :?:

Stinks it is so limited to the coasts.

Hell, I help build the things and there isn't one near me.

This is very cool. But frankly I am little disappointed that there is no middle ground. I would at least expected there to be something in MI or OH.

Oh well... Their marketing data must point them to those places.

I'm signed up at Izod as well, for 2pm. Just shy of 1100 miles from home.

Here's hoping that the link to contact them and that they actually listen will bring about additional locations. Would love to see something in the southeast somewhere. Sebring would be my first choice, but Homestead, Daytona, even as far as Road Atlanta would be doable. Heck, how about the Walmart parking lot!

The location I'm at is a football stadium. So I'm assuming its going to be in the parking lot. Autocross-like course anyone?

I wonder how many people will end up in each time slot. I'm hoping not too many people will be up early.

The locations were definitely chosen for the big open parking lots. I hope they have something cool set up.
