MotoGP Austin race

Hi there
I was thinking of going to Austin to see motoGP this comming weekend, but I have some doubts:

1) any nice hotel in the area?? not so expensive..
I will be flying into Houston, taking a rental car and driving to Austin.

2) best spot in the circuit?? I was considering buying GA, ground pass to walk around the circuit ans chose the best spot.

Any other suggestion???

Carlos.

Hotels are mostly sold out in the Austin and surrounding areas, there are multiple big eventsgoing on in Austin this weekend including the MS 150 bicycle race, I spent all day today and yesterday looking for a hotel, and could only find in a neighboring small town at about double their regular rate..ticketsfor the event are plenty though...

I remember being at the Indy MotoGP a few years ago and a friend who was wearing a black t-shirt that just said 'STONER' on the front of it in big letters was confronted outside the speedway by a cop about whether he had drugs on him. Sometimes it's hard being a fan of Casey's.

I didn't know that (obviously) - Yep Ago (first & foremost) & Mike the Bike are mine as well

At the risk of starting another Rossi slanging match - when it's all done & dusted I reckon he'll sit pretty comfortably along the all time greats.

Sometimes statistics like that only tell part of the story; maybe taking those figures as a percentage of the number of starts would give a truer picture.

Eg, in Surtees day, there were nowhere near the number of Grands Prix as now, yet also, riders rode in more than one class.

As always, it's difficult to compare eras; where would someone like Stanley Woods fit in?

It all adds to the discussion!

The older I get, the faster I was!
