To all,

We are proud to announce that the entire media team from last year has committed to returning to the Great Texas this year.

We are so glad to have Jeremy Leonard of Sail Revolution back as the leader of the media team. We are also happy to announce that John Williams will be in front of the camera again. Behind the camera, Jorge Trevino will be helping out. And all the way from Minnesota, we are glad to see that Karl Brogger will once again be joining us.

Here is some background on Jeremy, John and Jorge that we put together last year, http://www.greattexas300.blogspot.com/2012/03/meet-live-streaming-team-for-great.html

We will once again be live streaming the race. We will have two personal watercraft to follow live from the water. We'll have lots of GoPros on the boats. Expect a big show this year!

Steve Piche
Public Relations, Great Texas

with advances in AIS, it's a wonder they don't have them on portable VHFs which might help with the tracking if the GPS units have issues...

Might have a bit of a pickle for making in down..... Getting married the following weekend, me being in Texas the weekend prior might go over like a lead balloon.


Thoughts anyone?

Hell of an opportunity for a bachelor party.

Yes.

And I'm pretty sure a Mexican bachelor party with the GT300 crowd has "The Hangover III" written all over it. It'd be either a really good idea, or a really, really bad idea.

It only a bad idea if the rest of the media crew brings along the video gear.

Oh no, absolutely not. That's against man code.

Set the bar low, and continually fail to achieve it...

She told me I can do what I like. I question the level if appropriateness in going though. Everything is going to be at her parents place in the country, so there will be plenty of work that needs to be done prior.
