moto 2 was super cool to watch. GP was also pretty good, got to see the obvious leader battle pull away from "loren-tho", dovi and bautista running someone down for a position change. I've learned some things about how large events run from working there, and aside from the parked helicopter, 5 doctors, 12 BMWs, and 300 staff, Arroyo really isn't too far off, (seriously). I found a gig working as medical staff, so as of now I'm planing on making the trip next year, too.

I've made two trips to Austin this year and I'm pretty much sold on the idea of moving there. Not only is the track there, it's also Silicon Valley SW. Austin will be the second city to get Google Fiber, about 100 times faster than most internet access. They started advertising it on the radio this weekend. I've also been checking on real estate prices. You can get five acres pretty cheap and not too far from downtown Austin. In my current work I telecommute and it would be real easy to do it from somewhere in Austin.

I watched every single race and all but one practice session this weekend & Friday and I don't think any weren't entertaining. From T15 you could see the bikes coming down most of the longest straight into T12. The Moto3 bikes were even impressive. I read that they were clocked at 143 MPH at Qatar and there's no reason to think they weren't going that fast here. And that's on a 250. It was also good to see some of them making multiple passes in the same turn. I could see from T12 thru T15 and into T16. Great show.

On Saturday I made the walk to T11. That's a long hike, but not as long as Sunday when I entered thru the T11 west gate and walked down to T1 and then over to T15. After seeing each vantage point I think a person could do well with a GA ticket. But I want my same seat again next year.

I sat next to one of the WERA guys and behind a former Arroyo Seco track day rider. On Thursday last week I read a post on the WERA forum about a guy that was going to drive all night from Nashville, pickup his friend in Memphis and be at COTA in time for the first practice session. So when the guy next to me starts telling a similar story I asked and it was him.

Anyway it was a great weekend. Some how I got a new Challenger rental car which only made driving a gas (especially compared to my 1-ton). I also want to make it to the F1 race next fall and would like to make it to the V8 supercars but not sure I can get the time off. One more good reason to move to Austin. One bummer is that Austin is about 8 hours from Arroyo. But if I was going to do that it would mean that I would have to get in gear and put a bike together to ride. I haven't been on a track in 3 years.

It was cool to watch Marquez stock Danny. I thought Danny might put up a fight, but Marquez took Danny to school..

Have you had a chance to see a replay of the Speed show? Marc is definitely more radical in his style. You could see this clearly if you stood on grass in T16. So much fun.
