Pitting is outside for the most part, and yes! The 'big tent' is fully enclosed. As far as hydro is concerned, you won't have a problem!

The bottom line is that it is an awesome race, and you wouldn't go home disappointed. The overall set-up is terrific! Can't guess what the weather will be like, but can tell you that we all wore sweaters last year. It was exceptionally mild.

Hope you can make it to the race!

I might be wrong but I dont think there has been confirmation of the big tent yet for this year???

Dont get me wrong ... I am not knocking this race guys and I will probably be going BUT, with that said ... these guys are coming a long way and spending a lot of money so I think trying to be as honest as possible and leaving personal opinions out of the equation is important ... just my opinion

With one week to go looking ahead to the weather reports is saying daytime highs of about +10C and with all those bodies in the tent last year it was pretty comfortable to sit in there. The smoke in the tent was not bad as most people were tuning outside the tent. I think it's worth the trip just for the experence and the people and half bad either!!! Long story short....Come on out!!!
