Yes. I'm following Formula E this season. Heading out to Long Beach in April to watch the race out there.

I can't wait for the season to begin. It seems like Ducati is getting better and Yamaha definitely has something to prove this year. The field is packed with 28 riders(i think). Suzuki was in the top 10 in testing which should give them some hope. I'd love to see Vale take another championship but he has some serious competition.

Ryno that what we usually do also. Ride down on Friday. We go with another local motorcycle forum as they usually buy a block of tickets and ride down together. Anywhere from 10-20 of us.

Steve, where are you staying at in Indy? We will be at the La Quinta on Washington downtown. Short walk (4 blocks) to the monument circle.
