definetely reserve you room now and make sure you have confirmation via email and by phone.
as for renting the bike, HW1 is a must.
however, if you're not going to be camping at the track, parking a bike can be tricky. If you don't get to the main parking areas early enough, you may very well end up on a hill with the ground squirrels, dried grass, rocks and that heavenly sun.
Or you could leave the bike in town, take the shuttle to the track and not have to worry about parking your bike, or wether or not you'll be slidding your bike down the hill when you leave. It's happened.
There are some horror stories, but more positives than negatives. This past race weekend was a fluke due to the heat wave. Alot went south due to the heat, but for the most part it was a great time.
Now, be forewarned, Laguna is extremely limited in handling a 100k crowd for the three days, but they are improving every year. Just bring your patience, tolerance and understanding. Just roll with it. :icon_salu
