A Dummy’s Guide to MotoGP in Austin



The ice cream trailer on the left was pretty tasty and the prices not so track-elevated (it was $6 or so for a medium sized cup with a couple scoops which I think is relatively standard if you hit up any ice cream shop).  There is a new outdoorsy seating area with tables and chairs surrounded by the new trees.



Ducati had the nicest tent if you were looking to buy stuff.  On Friday practice, it was easy to get into.  On Sunday race day, there was a line a hundred deep outside the door to the tent.


Nicky Hayden's MotoGP bike from last year was parked out front.  I'm hoping by the end of the year with Audi having taken over Ducati, the Audi guys can get the bike sorted and at least close to competitive.  We'll see if Audi can work its engineering magic like they have in Le Mans and GT racing.


Yamaha's tent had a lot of merchandise for sale along with bikes to sit on.
