Here's an update on the Track Day with answers to most of your questions:

We have the track from 10am to 6pm
We are on our own for lunch, no BBQ or cooking is allowed at the track
Drivers 17 years old must have their parents sign a parental consent form
If you get 2 tires off the track, you'll get a DNF for that run
If you get 2 tires off multiple times you're day will be over (track rules)
If you get 3 tires off the track, the track officials will talk to you... any other tires off will result in you not being allowed to run any more that day.
We are still working on timing equipment, otherwise we will need volunteers for hand timing
Tech inspection and hanging out on Friday night (7/29) at Bill Coffeys house starts around 6pm... no BBQ, we'll go to the restaurant down the street to eat
No passing allowed
So far, the track insurance does not allow instructors or passengers, we're working on getting an additional rider on the insurance policy, but assume for now that no passengers will be allowed (bummer).
Since no passengers or instructors are allowed, we will be allowed to have a few sessions (parade laps) where you can follow an instructor and they will show you the line around the track.
The hotel that we've arranged for lodging is called the Cabot Lodge. Book your room and tell them you are with the Florida Z Fest and you should get a rate of $71 per night or better. Their phone number is 352-375-2400 -or- 800-843-8735. They offer a complimentary continental breakfast and a complimentary evening reception. The cutoff to get the discounted rate at the hotel is 7/19.
