I booked a room already in downtown austin, over by 6th street (think: Division Street with live music at each bar/every other bar).

Hoo Hah!

Round Trip tickets airfare is about $400. So, start saving your pennies kids.

Sweet 2 hour drive for me.

I fear this may indicate the loss of the Indy round in the near future. Attendance has been down year over year, and many of the riders still do not like the racing surface. And after putting Stoner out for half the season and dropping Hayden and Spies on their heads in that nasty back field corner, IMS might be making even less friends at Dorna.

Hopefully I'm wrong and we can still keep Indy for years to come.

Let's hope Indy stays around for a long time. Only time will tell.

I'm still on the fence about going. April is looking busy for me next year. I'll be there next month for F1, though. I'll try to scope out some good views in General Admission
