Circuit of the Americas

The designers hit this one out of the park. Truly a beautiful racetrack. I NEED to ride/drive it. If you're thinking about going down for MotoGP, or any other race, I would highly suggest it. Plus, downtown Austin is really fun.

If you're looking at Reserved Seating for MotoGP, go with either Corner 15 or Corner 1. I think I'd go Corner 1 myself. Because you can see the finish line and it's elevated so you can see a large portion of the track. They also had private suites that looked to seat 20+. Not sure how much $$. But, they looked pimp.

I'll be posting photos from the weekend on my facebook page if you're interested in seeing the views from General Admission seating areas

Very interested to see photos from the weekend.

So you were down to watch the F1 then? I will be there next year.

Stuff the GP bikes, I want to see something that goes around a track very, very fast.

Hayden was down there for F1 and said it will be by far the nicest track GP races

Yes, I was there all three days. We went to every GA seating area. It was a great weekend. They had a few small bumps. But, I'm sure they'll learn from every event

Sorry about that.

All the photos that are up now are from turn 11. I've got about 1000 more to go through. They are from turn 1, 19, and 7
