Lucky bastards. What's your transportation situation for bikes? Does a track day provider run the track days or does COTA hold the events? Have they lowered their prices for next year?

Yup. Barf gathering in Saturday night.

You can search COTA for several threads I have done. Recommendations for food and such included.

Edit.
Added keeping it weird pic.

I noticed today that it is the second race on the schedule instead of argentina like last year. Wonder if they did that on purpose

Seems like roughly the same week for COTA, just the 3rd race of the year.

The wife and I are considering to go to COTA next year as well. Austin is a great town!!! Biggest hold back for me is the almost inevitable MM win.... Nothing against MM, but if I'm going to travel and shell out the bucks for a race would like some suspense!!

With the rule changes we may get it though! Anyway, sounds like you have some good hook-ups so you're set! Only US GP in a sweet town, can't go wrong.

Re-read your post, thought you were doing a trackway there. :face palm

But you're still a lucky bastard!

the MotoGP weekend's proposed Fri nite GNC may well be enough to convince Tuono Joice & me to revisit COTA - Austin's a ton o'fun

the new Michelins & spec software could negate any MM dominance, at least that early in the season

GO DUCATI !!
