PPIHC Has anybody been?

I will be attending the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb this year and it will be the first time I have ever attended. I have a few questions...........

1) Where is the best place to view the race? I have been doing some research and am leaning tward the Glen Cove area. Any suggestions?

2) What time should I show up to the gate to get the best spot? I am planning on showing up at the gate a 4am. Should I go earlier?

3) What frequencies do the report the check point times on?

Like I said I am new to this event and figured I would try and get some pointers from some local folks. I am open to any suggestions!

Thanks,

It is the 20th of next month and I just found out that I also will not be attending, my wife got a call the other day accepting her into RN school so that means the my pocket book will be too light to go.

I just posted on a scanner forum to see if I can get the freqs for you. I'll post as soon as I get something unless someone beats me to it.
