Had a blast this year, although now I'm spoiled after sitting in the suite.

I was planning on going this year but had an economical emergency on the ranch. So i spent a couple of bucks for VideoPass on the motogp website. Kinda cool i can "push Pause" on Lorenzo going down the straight at 200+mph. ;-)

Apparently they changed the date to make us wait longer....

They also put two weeks in between Argentina and Austin... Smart move!

I see... Well the good part about being about 50 seconds off the superbike pole is that I really don't need to test tires...

I would appreciate any help in where to sit etc. I was looking at packages etc but WOW..

There are tons of places to sit for just general admission. After turn 2 there is a hill that follows the track until turn 5 or 6. There is a big tv on the other side of the track to watch the race also.

GA is the way to go on a budget...

Spend most of Friday learning the circuit and checking out the views. The bikes run all day in 40-60 minute sessions, so even though they are not racing, you can get the idea of where your best view is going to be.

Spend Saturday shopping, autographing, people watching, etc... Saturday is not as packed as race day, but there are plenty of people.

Spend Sunday watching races. Go to your spot you found Friday and camp. Bring something to sit on (preferably water proof) and an umbrella (or lots of sun screen).

Also you can stay in a hotel anywhere around the circuit, so don't buy into Austin proper unless you plan to spend some time there. You can get a hotel in Round Rock, Pflugerville, Elgin, Hutto, etc... They are all about 30 miles away but can save you a lot of money. Also parking is expensive, but worth it, especially if you get the full three day pass...

Or spend all three days corner working and get up close and personal with everything!
