Laguna is horrible for watching a big race because of the traffic. I was going to go to Indy but I think I may hit up Austin instead. Plus, I've got a freind that lives there I need to visit.

hopefully this helps build american interest, but i still don't get the move. America is probably the least interested in motogp, and we have 3 events?

I hope they allow td's or some other smaller race orgs at COTA. should be a blast.

America(s) and China are untapped markets. Europe, Africa, Australia, Japan, Macau/HK are saturated. India and the rest of Asia may have a billion motorcycles, but none over 500cc and not a whole lot of money to throw at motorcycle racing.

I think it's a Hail Mary that Dorna NEEDS to make succeed (both MotoGP and Formula-1).

They needed something in Texas to give the folks in SA a sense that it's more-centrally located. And, right now, who in their right mind would put something like this in Mexico or Venezuela? Brazil would have been a great choice, though activists may have boycotted for rain-forest deforestation, and no one from the US would travel south. That pretty much leaves the southern/central US.

I'm down for a carpool. I got dibs on whackin' it on the back of Tom's truck, Roger. Id say we should invite Jordan, but he probably won't have enough time in the next two years to request leave...

You have friends?
I remember Laguna for the cops being total tools about bikes and bikers. Heaven forbid you try to split lanes (legal in Cali) and they get on your butt for dangerous driving.
Miller was a joy in comparison. Austin is a closer and more centrally located venue. About time they got a world class track out there.
