    sometimes I was too busy trying to keep the bike upright to actually see which way those red arrows were pointing.

    I think that's what they where after. Its one thing to pick your own line through those obstacles, its a completely different thing to have to follow a predetermined line / course.

    BMW will let us know..... We're on a need to know basis, as with the whole schedule of the qualifying :evil :deal

    I guess people need to accept before BMW announces, but hard to build enthusiasm for a series of question marks...

    When is the actual Challenge event?

    I was told we get on the plane 11/24 come back 12/2, other than that, it's need to know. Hopefully I get to be on the plane :clap

    That´s the same (and only) info we got in Brazil, that whoever qualifies has to be available from 11/24 to 12/02.

    BTW, there are only 50 qualifiers fighting for 3 spots. For those who complained about the cost, they are charging us about US$ 450 to have a shot. Hotel is extra. You get food and a shirt.
