For all of you making the trek to the US GP, I ran across this article recently on places to eat in Austin:

Raux,

The first GP there were several of us that went down and we all stayed in Elgin. Since then I have gone to 2 more race weekends and stayed there each time. The in and out from the track will be very easy coming from the direction you will. I think you have made a great choice staying there. Granted, it isn't convenient if you want to do shit IN Austin, but we just saved the drinking until we got back to the hotel!

And there are a couple of very good BBQ joints in Elgin.

I am green with envy!!

I was just going to post and ask the best way to get in from the east (Elgin.)  Are the parking directions into CotA, and Duc Island specifically, marked well?  Prior Planning Prevents (really bad) Performance...

Raux, I'm at the Holiday Inn (at Mark's suggestion,) where are you guys?

I don't really feel the need to go mixing it up down in Austin... it just seems like a bad idea.

Same hotel.
Likely just going into Austin Friday night for Ducati party only.
It's pretty easy from the east and Ducati package parking is in the track behind the tower. Not hard to miss.

Sweet!

Just got my CotA Duc Island info email.  I just automatically thought I wouldn't be able to the parade lap thing because I don't have full-up riding gear... nice to see what I have will work.   waytogo

Looks like the long-range forecast calls for decent weather for the trip Friday, maybe some showers on Saturday, and again for the trip home Monday.  Oh, well... wouldn't be the first time.

Hope everyone has a blast!  We had a great time for the inaugural race. But this time, as for me, I'll be stuck watching the MotoGP internet feed live from the comfort of my living room… where beers are a "free" and my parked car is a mere fifty feet away...

Had to do it.  Sorry   Evil

Seriously, though, y'all have fun and be safe.
