Fontana AMA?

Anyone going to the race? I'm hoping to be there.

It would be cool to meet up with some people in the pits or something and see if we can hang out with the MV guys a little, or something.

Of course, I'll have to go see one of my all time racing heroes, Doug Chandler. He'll be there. And a guy I race with once in a while is doing the full AMA year, Ivan Garza. I'm hoping to pump him up a little.

So, anyone else going?

(If I'm late to the game and there's already a thread, I apologize.)

There isn't a thread yet, but I should be there (and hopefully a handful of guys from LA)

I will be there for sure, this is my test run for the complete camera set-up I am taking to Laguna. I recently purchased the Canon L series 100mm-400mm IS AF lens, and she is a beauty!!! I can't wait!!!

See y'all there...

Hey Alvin...Can you get me a press pass???

BTW, there are rumors that our very own FBD may be spotted there, although he seems to be off the grid, as of late...

I wonder what the limits are for track access? With that lens you should be good from the parking lot..

Each track is different.
Some require you to buy an additional pit pass for $15-50 (Laguna MotoGP, Daytona...). Some don't (Road Atlanta, Sears, Fontana)
The pit pass will not get you access to hot pits or grids. Thats for officials, teams, riders, VIPs, and sneaky groupies.

You need a press pass to meander around the track for good action shots. Pit pass is for walking around the pit.
