I ordered reserve seats months ago, but didn't order parking tickets.

I've heard a rumor there will be no shuttle buses.

Anyone have a clue if you MUST pre-order parking tickets?

I heard no shuttle bus so I bought parking passes.
No info on where you would park if no parking reservations.
Bike parking is the cheapest.

For the recent GrandAm race I read that they had cash parking for $20 a day. So I suspect they will have daily parking, but for 3 days it will be more than the pre-paid.

Three days parking, close to our seats, was $73.
It's $43 for the bike lot.

Several MotoGP teams are heading to Austin for testing March 12-14. Anyone know if this is open to the public?

Testing is private according to MotoGP.com

Texas poised to welcome MotoGP™ regulars


Friday, 8 March 2013
The Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas will play host to a private MotoGP™ test as three teams head to the venue next week. Repsol Honda Team is to be joined by Yamaha Factory Racing and LCR Honda MotoGP between Tuesday and Thursday.
Although a handful of CRT wildcard riders sampled the anti-clockwise track in mid-February, next week will mark the first time the likes of World Champion Jorge Lorenzo, Valentino Rossi, Dani Pedrosa and Stefan Bradl have taken to the American tarmac. It will then become a new addition to the MotoGP calendar this April.

Having witnessed poor conditions at the first pre-season test - which took place in Valencia shortly after the 2012 campaign ended - rookie Marc Márquez now looks forward to the challenge of dry track time at a setting other than Malaysia’s Sepang International Circuit.

Weather can be changeable in the Austin area and forecasters are predicting rain for this weekend, but that is expected to be replaced by bright sunshine and blue skies by the time testing begins. Regular videos, in the form of highlights and rider interviews, will be available on motogp.com as well as special behind-the-scenes features.

Any other inmates signed up to be flag marshals? My wife and I are. We're pretty stoked about going to the new track at CoTA.

Frustration

The COTA website is pretty much useless - I went to purchase General Admission tickets and had to pick between GA2, GA3 and GA$ with NO explanation as to the differences. Also, absolutely nothing about parking - accessibility, price, location. WTF!?!?! Anyone on here know anything?

COTA website is crap.

A friend called them to ask about the GA thing, apparently they are all the same; their response was something about coding or tracking or somesuch nonsense. Bottom line is, just pick one they are--for our purposes--all apparently the same.

Parking is an extra charge and there are options i.e. motorcycle parking vs. cage parking.

My friend and I have the tickets and accommodations but are putting off the parking question as we're debating whether to ride or drive; two of his sons are joining us and they don't ride.

...all I got

Received this email from COTA

Thank you for your interest in Circuit of The Americas. General Admission areas are grassy berms; there are no sections and no assigned seats. The numbers you see with these tickets are for our purposes to keep track of ticket sales. You do have access to all of the General Admission areas; and are allowed to bring in a folding tailgating chair. On-site parking is available for MotoGP for $60 for a vehicle or $30 for motorcycle only, for the 3-day event. You can purchase this online through Ticketmaster;
