Indy MotoGP this weekend

Hey guys....I will be in turn 2 working all weekend. My company has taken the old Ducati Island location for displays/hospitality/service/parts/etc.....

If you are at the MotoGP, come by and say HI.....Unfortunately, I couldn't bring Gina and am relegated to driving a cage all weekend....but come say HI anyway.

Anyone going to the AMA Mile Dirt Track Race at the fairgrounds????

The weather looks to be fantastic this year (finally, after hurricanes or blistering heat in years past).

See you there...

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

I'm riding the Brute out there from Chicago on Saturday. What's the name of your company? I will definitely look for the booth!

We'll be hard to miss, as the entire turn 2 area will be filled....3 tractor trailers with full canopies as well as other tents. The Grandstands in that turn are reserved for our customers. It's our 50th anniversary in the US this year, so we're celebrating!!

Just ask any of the other staff to point me out when you get there.

John, I doubt the cameras will see me...but I'll wave and smile anyway!!!

Awesome. This will be my first GP so I'm pretty psyched. Will my gen admission ticket get me over to you?

That ticket will get you everywhere except inside the pits and the Museum.

Photo from 1st Indy Moto GP.

IMHO the Ducati grandstand area was the best place to be. So close to pit out you could feel the exhaust pulses as the bikes passed by.

3 sec. YouTube video: http://youtu.be/40Gx61JxWxU


Great viewing from the exit of T1 thru to T5 plus we had the big screen just over our right shoulder 1st year, left years following.
Lots of good photo ops too.





It’s just a short walk to the museum or the venders in the garages. It’s a bit of a hike to the manufacturers, venders display in the in field but you got to go there if only to ogle the girls.


Because Ducati decided not to do the corporate thing and we had planned on going to Bub5 we decided to skip the Indy Moto GP this year. Now I’m sort of regretting that decision. However, we’ll be going to Duck Fly South next month and Bub5 next year so it’s all good.

For those of you going don’t miss the flat track races, very entertaining.

Linda was the red and I the white panels at the top of the left hand side of the “U” as viewed in the photo. (Upper right hand corner on the “U” when sitting in our seats.)

If you spent any time in the hospitality tent during the first four years you probably saw, spoke to my wife. She’s volunteered there and at gear check every year.

This was her now famous Indiana in front of the tent in 2010.

We spent a lot of time in that area. Interesting we were so close...but no cigar!
