US GP Tix and Parking info - ALERT!!

Received these, thought I'd share. Most importantly for those of you that are planning on attending read about the parking and traffic flow.

I'm off to play with the boys of RA!!!! Love, Sara

If there is one thing I have learned about sporting events, especially going to my sisters during the nascar bristol races where they try to cram 160000+ people into a tiny little town, never follow the parking directions they give you. They try to stick you into overflow roads where they can contain you and not back up better roads that allow easier access to and from the area.

last year they sold out and they will again.....

and with Laguna Seca... the only way in is where they allow.. the roads are not there...theres only a few. Traffic was rediculous last year and will be agian...maybe not as bad, but it wont be a leisurly stroll in. Bikes got in in aobut 20-30 minutes last year then a 15 minute walk and cars were two hours to get in and then a 15 minute walk..... The shuttles should aid cagers speed in a ton, bikes prob wont change. Again u can expect 900 cops on duty at all times dying to hit up sport bikes with tickets.... Only place ive ever ran from the cops was there....Dont get in the position....NOT GOOD.

Moto GP Laguna Seca

If you get there a day or 2 before, you can definately plot your own route. I usually get there on a Thursday and leave Monday morning so you don't have to deal with the traffic. Hope to see you there
