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

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.
