    Go every year. Tickets already bought in the presale. Great track and great city. If you want good Honda/repsol gear, get to the Honda tent the first day and early as common sizes seem to vanish the first day, especially the Gas gear.

    I might consider it as I have never been to the Texas race, Best place to Sit? Prefer corner! Lots of action!

    All three times I've gone I sat at Turn 12 grandstands. It's the end of the back straight with a great view of the entire section just before the carousel. To the right there is a jumbotron. If you're high enough on the stands you can see over to the other side of the track and get glimpses of the flowing section of turns 3, 4 and 5.

    Back at you Thrasher!

    This was always my favorite place to be at COTA the first 3 years of MotoGP there.

    The 2014 F1 event was kind of fun too, but nothing beats 2-wheel racing, eh!

    Our parking was pretty awesome at Indy also. That building is packed full of the Brickyard Museum car collection.

    MotoGP Austin is in April every year, so you shouldn't have made other plans...
