So , I wonder how they're going to get the crowds in and out if they are policeing heavily enough to give this list some teeth.
Are they going to stop each bike and rummage through the saddle bags ?Tear up your ticket and send you away if you try to smuggle in a sandwich, an apple ?
What will happen with the no video recording devices rule in a day where every digital camera and smart phone will make video recordings. Are they planning to rip Go-Pro cameras off riders helmets ?
These rules certainly hit me as Draconion. I doubt they'll be searches .
But they wrote and published the rules.
Yes it's quite the list! I will have a 12 pack in my backpack so we'll see what happens...
Sounds like you're gonna be down a 12 pack
I just purchased my tickets and noticed the parking price situation. I'll walk the extra 50ft and save myself $30. I need the exercise anyway . I'm going mostly because I am really excitedto see in person all 3 classes race. I usually do Laguna and have not experianced the two other lesser classes. I will be riding down from Colorado on Wednesday/Thursday. I have two large saddlebags, bet I could get a case in them easily, might as well take a few breaks in the parking lot to rehydrate. See you other inmates down there, I'll wear one of my ADV shrts for recognition. Bout a month to go!
The carry in inspection was pretty lame during the F1 race. We carried in food and beverage. I saw SEVERAL camer tripods and video cameras.
At Laguna Seca we have carried in rolling coolers full of drinks, food and beer for years. It always strikes me as a cheap shot to extract more money from the fans when I see such restrictive policies as those listed above.
I couldn't find a schedule for fri,sat,sun. Is there one?
Here you go.
This is from the MotoGP website so should be correct.

Over $30 to park a motorcycle at a motorcycle race is just an insult. They aren't starting the track or the race off well. And no shuttles. I guess F1 got all the attention and MotoGP just pays the bills.
I don't know. The F1 race was expensive!
Statement by Kevin Schwantz
I have read several reports regarding my attendance at the MotoGP test last week in Austin. I would like to make this statement:
"I had been in Switzerland over the weekend where I was the guest speaker at the St. Gallen University. I returned to Texas on Tuesday evening and on Thursday I was at CotA for the MotoGP test, with a proper credential supplied by the Attack team, to coach Blake Young. Additionally I was an invited guest of the LCR Honda team.
While there, CotA security informed me that CotA management requested I leave the track immediately and was not welcomed at the circuit. CotA's security force also accused me of criminal trespass and warned I would be arrested the next time I entered the track.
This comes as a tremendous disappointment to Honda, Blake Young, and myself. Especially because I am single-handedly responsible for bringing MotoGP to Texas and for the initial design of the facility to accommodate MotoGP racing."
HMMMMMM sad deal there...
Kevin brought MotoGP to CotA and was booted out of the deal just like the guy who brought F1 to CotA. Looks like the management of CotA uses up people then gives them the boot when they find an out. I believe there are on going law suits between CotA and both Kevin and the gentleman who brought F1.
Thanks Assfault, just what I was looking for. It's a shame about Schwantz ordeal I would boycott the race but if we all did that it would only eliminate another GP venue. bete
Wow. I think i'll save up for Laguna instead.
Someone should set up a booth outside the track to sell t-shirts with Swantz's picture on it, saying "Let Kevin in or we won't be back".
MotoGP specific FAQ posted on COTA website.
Trent: I believe the $30 (+tax) is a pass for all 3 days. Not to bad for parking.
Most event parking I see (in Toronto @ least) is $20 for a hockey games/concerts. Then again street parking @ meters for motorcycles is free in Toronto proper.
$43 includes tax and fees, all three days to park your bike. This lot is close to grand stands.
