We'll ain't that a bitch. I was hoping for shuttles so I wouldn't have to worry about a rental car/parking @ track & hotel/gas etc. Hell I'd take local transit if it went there.

Any neighborhoods to avoid? I'm still considering downtown but if I have to drive anyway who knows.

Pardon my French, but that person is an . Pop over the the regional forums and see if somebody would let you toss your gear in their back yard.

Yeah, we were thinking the same thing. However we fly in late Friday night, and leave early Monday morning, so for that reason we decided to stay close to the airport. Should make it a little easier with rental car and getting to the track. We will be at the courtyard Marriott.

Austin has tons of great food, but when visiting from out of town you have to try smoked meats and texmex. Not necessarily at the same time. :-) Also delve into the local craft beer scene. Austin area brewers are making some incredible beer these days.

I bought my tickets this past weekend. I went for the GA tickets but most importantly I also got motorcycle parking passes!

Now I just need to find a place to stay for my father and I. I know for sure we are not staying in Austin. I'm looking for a place outside of town, where we can have fun riding back and forth to the track.

Can't wait!

BBQ. Shiner Bock beer. Tex Mex.

So I e-mailed the track thru their web-site around the first of the year to see if they would have camping available,ya know like 98% of the tracks in the world...still waiting for an answer! I've camped at Indy since day 1 of GP but truthfully I really don't care for the track lay-out. Probably watch it on the iMac and camp out at laguna...

Bastrop state park is about 20 miles east of the track, but I don't have any details about it.

I never did see anything about motorcycle passes when I bought my ticket. Did you get your tickets online or did you phone?

I just cancelled 2 sites at Bastrop state park that should show available now or later today. You can have up to 8 people per site.
We had some folks in our group that did not want to camp so I booked some rooms in Lockhart for cheap but more expensive than camping.

Going! suck news about no shuttles

I am going, along with a couple of my friends... we are flying in cause we are lazy, but were hoping to take the shuttle like they had for F1, oh well :(

http://www.eurocyclesoftampabay.com/...urvival-guide/

Saw that when trying to find shuttle info, could be useful info if you haven't already bought tickets ;)

$73 smackers to park

Thanks for the heads up.
I just took it in the ass for partking. $73 bucks for all days.
Bike parking is $43. Maybe several inmates could pile on a scooter like they do in Mexico!
