I bet you draw a lot of attention there if you mention that F1 to Manual conversion you just successfully made =) People wanting to try it for themselves will line up...

I hope to be there again this year either pit crewing for a couple vintage Italian racers or showing my Lancia or combination of both.

Some video I shot a couple years ago.

If you're talking about the Hampton in Homestead then yes. It was fine and there's Courtyard by Marriott right next door. Both about the same. Ferrari club stayed there two years ago I think.

Thanks for the feedback. I was looking at Hampton by medical center. Homestead on the water looks much nicer

Yeah but it has several times and it's usually just fine. High humidity AND temperatures are a killer though. I've been there for that ... not pleasant. It'll be an expensive waste of time and money it it's brutally hot. I'll stay in my hotel room. Temps look good so far ...

Weather hasn't cooperated all week but is set to be beautiful this weekend.

If you are traveling in from out of town road and bridge construction has made driving into town a little tricky in spots. Keep an eye on All District 11 News or https://twitter.com/511papittsburgh?lang=en

Safe travels to all.
