"I'm really excited about this race," Hayden said. "It is great that Red Bull is committed to the growth of MotoGP in America, and coming to such an historic track like Indianapolis Motor Speedway will be really special to me. It's like my home race. I'm sure all of Owensboro will make the drive up north!"
OH HELL YEAH!

This is totally sweet. I can't freagin' wait. We need to have a massive GTG with RR.net members. SO SO SO happy to see that they have added new turns cause the F1 track was kind of boring. Its going to be a challenging track to say the least.

Here is a better pic of the circuit map. Hopefully this works:

General admission is probably the best way to go, but you have to make sure you get to the grounds really early to save yourself a good spot in the front. Thanks for posting the schedule.

The track looks cool but I think I'll still try to hit up Laguna next year.

(off topic but does anyone know the date of the Laguna race in '08?)

i agree, if i was going to buy a seat though, i think i'd go for the new "Corner 7 Terrace" aparently, that's a new addition because track designers think 7,8,9 is going to be prime passing area, and i'm sure they'll be cooking into 6. stand b, e, corner 7, and south vista are all only $100 for reserved seating good for all 3 days. i dunno, for $25 more that might not be a bad idea.

seems like thats the best deal? If I buy a reserved seating (corner 7)...can you still get into the GA sections? Are they selling padlock passes like they do at Laguna? i'd really like to get down and see the bikes up close... or is that something different?

also anyone know where u can apply for media/press passes?

I went to F1 this year and sat in what they are calling "corner 7" terrace. It was okay, yeah lots of tries at passes but nothing super extraordinary. Now that I know better I am sticking with general admission. Oh yeah for F1, general admission gets you everywhere, you can sit in front of the pits at practice and qualifying. Only for the race is it mandatory to give up a seat if you are sitting in somebody else's spot. At least that's way it works in F1, not sure its going to be the same case for MotoGP. I sure hope it will.

Another thing to keep in mind is that only the front straight has cover from the sun or rain. All other grand stands are open air.

What is this track like for those of you that know? Is it tight? Can't tell obviously from just a map. How long is that straight? Will they reach 200mph? Just trying to get a feel for the size of this track. What are the chances of us getting to ever do a track day there, haha!!!!!

Dorna is pretty much gonna have complete control of anything related to motogp so you'll have to apply for media credentials through them at dorna . com
