Someone failed to notice the conflicting dates when setting up the Wildflower ride this year.  I had to choose and I decided to go to Wildflower and RIDE rather than watch.  I can record and watch later.  Actually I may be home in time for the main GP race.

HA! Yeah I could ride the next weekend.  This only comes once a year.

I believe it is aired on the SPEED channel so you can probably record it if you have the appropriate DVR.

Great video.  I remember it well.  Dingaling, jumping the start like that. I bet he got screamed at.  But you know he still finished pretty high up considering he had to restart =D

Hi,
       Need my butt kicked for not making it over to the Daytona 200!  :great:

 I live about 40 min away, of course the crowds are legendary! ;D

I've been to both the mgps at cota. Both times on the front straight. This year I will be somewhere near turn fifteen.
I say somewhere because I purchased a ticket at the starting line last year and got a ticket right on the finish line. Who knows what they'll give me this time.
I will be on the Conc me thinks, I live an hour from the track and can't carry much provisions on the 'Hawk. So I found out last year.
Look for me, every so often I'll stand up and scream " FUCKIN CONCOURS YEAHHH!!" or maybe woooo

I would love to go again. I took my wife and two sons to see Ben Spies (from Longview, TX my home town) racing his last year in MotoGP. My 18 year old son (now 20) also went to the first F1 COTA. Both of these events were fantastic memories and every event sounds almost boring in comparison. Seeing the Greatest Show on Earth with F1 coming to Austin and then 2013 seeing the MotoGP race was on my bucket list.

For F1 we sat in the grandstand at turn 15, and was the best seat in the house because you see the racers at top speed on the backstretch heading towards you about 400 feet away and slamming the brakes for turn 12 and the S turns through turn 15 at the slowest point on the track.

For MotoGP we were at the top of the hill on turn 1. Closer to the live action on the awards and pits but less action until the end.

At MotoGP the best parking lot was full of motorcycles and they got special free parking. Now I want to roll up there with my C14 and roll with the big dogs!

Maybe next year...
