    Anybody here working COTA? I was invited to flag, but I'll be driving a chase truck the following week in the Mexican 1000. Couldn't take the extra time. :cry

    Seems like it would be a good layout to spectate if they have viewing berms and such. I'll go 2014 probably.

    I like KS, but I don't believe everything he says. He's seems a bit of a hustler himself.

    Yes, I'm working Tech, doing tyre control. Wednesday we will sticker each tyre with a unique bar-code. Thursday tyres will be allocated. Then Fri,Sat,Sun every time a tyre goes on or off it gets scanned with a hand-held device.
    Moto2 & 3 get random tyre scans, Moto3 gets engines scanned as well.

    $43 after ticketrapist and tax. For any event other than a motorcycle race I'd understand bending over those idiot motorcyclists for parking their loud bikes all day. :D At a motorcycle race it seems a bit outrageous. I'll be lucky to not get kicked out probably. If I do i'll be at Gypsy Lounge for their Free Kevin watching party. :1drink

    I would think the searches wouldn't start until walking into the gates with bags where the tickets will be scanned. The parking area at past events is not like this.

    The search at ther F1 race was lame. We just unzipped our back packs and they looked in. We did not see anything more than that being done. During the race we saw all sorts of cameras, tripods, and even video cameras. If attendance is as low as the media is reporting, the search will be no problem.
