That looks like E to me. Our seats are in that section as well. May stop by before or after we take our lap around the track.

Hoping (but doubting) our lap this year will be as epic as last year. We slid in right under the wire as they were just about to close up, so it was just us and a few Marshalls going much faster than we had expected. Giggled like a school girl the whole time!

Sounds like you lucked out with the lap...I did it back in 2008 and it was so excruciatingly slow that I vowed never to be tempted again....and the wait to actually get on the track was ridiculous.

OK....here we are, Tuesday before the race and I STILL HAVE NOT YET RECEIVED MY $600 TICKET PACAKGE!!!! Was sent UPS and schedued for delivery today, but now not showing a delivery date and can't confirm. I've not been to this since 2008, but if this is the way it's organized, it's no surprised that this may be the last year for Motogp at Indy.

That picture looks somewhat familiar. I'll be riding this to the race from Detroit on Thursday evening.

I do believe that's the E grandstand. Frecks and I have seats in E, section 16 Row M for the Race Day.

Yep. I've read that we should see Dirt Track on Fri. night and the Flat Track on Sat. night. I think we'll go to Meridian for a bit too. Any other suggestions?

Well, the fact that they waited to send them out (or for some reason couldn't) until August 7th is absolutely ridiculous. And then opted to send by 'standard' UPS service to someone in Canada is absolutely ridiculous.

Camping in lot 2 with a buddy riding from TX.

We have quite a few heading to Indi.

Here is the Friday afternoon schedule. We will shoot for section E get together around 1:30pm. Hopefully a few of us can watch GP practice along with Moto 2, and have a few beers.

1:10 pm - 1:50 pm - Moto3 Practice Session 2 - Track
2:05 pm - 2:50 pm - MotoGP Practice Session 2 - Track
3:05 pm - 3:50 pm - Moto2 Practice Session 2 - Track

More details to come....

Everyone be safe heading to the track!
