Re: Who's ready for MOTOGP ?

I'm planning on going. I went the first year, but haven't been back. Time for another fix.
Go Ducati!

I got in through Ride Smart, a company that does m/c training on the track.
you can check with them. and check your ticket package, b/c I hear the parade lap is also included w/ 3 day pass.

Here's a pic of what it looks like to reach the finish line.
Is that freakin' cool beans or what!
World Class track ain't hype, COTA lives up to that name!

Re: Who's ready for MOTOGP ?

I'm interested in going if I'm in town, but I'll likely go Saturday if I do go. My Step-Dad has a streaming pass for the season, and we'll watch the race that way I think. Also have to decide between this and an adventure ride, so we'll see.

Re: Who's ready for MOTOGP ?

I am ready! In the past I worked the track, flagging, but this year I'm going to watch on a GA ticket if they still sell them.

Re: Who's ready for MOTOGP ?

This is my 3rd year, I go full snotty, in the paddock building, bus to and from track, hotel. They feed me and fill me with drink as well.



Getting to hang with my baby girl makes it all worth while for this Dad

Re: Who's ready for MOTOGP ?

For those of you riding to the track, there will be a couple of Christian Motorcycle Association (CMA) tents for the free storage of your gear. The signs in the past said Gear Check, so some people assume it was a security check, it is not. The signs also did not mention it is free, it is. Just make sure to come back after the last race to get your gear, don't wait till after the concert, if there is one.

Re: Who's ready for MOTOGP ?

Not sure if I'll make it, I went the first year. Trying for RedBull pass if that doesn't pan out maybe GA. If time permits.

Re: Who's ready for MOTOGP ?

Oh,...last yr, COTA hosted an AMA FLAT TRACK RACE - nighttime racing!

My 1st flat track event, unbelievable skills displayed. Nothing like it.




Hope COTA puts it on again this yr. YUGE success

Re: Who's ready for MOTOGP ?

Me and the wife are coming down for our first MotoGP race. We're doing all three days at turn 15. Looking forward to it. Just a month away!

It's 34 degrees and snowing right now. Time for some warm sunshine!
