Hey!! I was in that section! To the far far right of the pic. You can't see me in the pic surprisingly. I was inline with turn 2 and 3.

I saw a pretty damn nice 919 when I was up there. I don't know if that was you. I didn't ride up though .

Jet refuses to ride a 919, says he's too purdy.

Great pix! How did that panoramic vantage/reverb experience compare to watching the GP on HD-speed from your couch?

Comparing the race live to tv is like comparing eating a sandwich and watching someone on tv eat the sandwich.

Thanks for the great analogy and confirming instead of subscription TV (unplugged for 2years! ) need to attend live GPs.

I was looking at your pic again Kev and I just realized how much I would love to see a GP race there. The only time I've been there is a Brickyard 400 race a few years ago. We sat in almost the exact seating area opposite you in turn 4. I must say it is quite the track.

Of course I'm a bit biased, but IMS is the best track in the country and right up there with any in the world. Every year they deal with over a million fans coming to the various races, it's amazing how well they handle the crowds of people and always provide a quality experience. The track is fast, safe and full of history, the infield road course is exciting and well designed, the facility is clean and well staffed, the museum is outstanding and the golf course is world class.

Every large city needs a Tony George in their midst. He's never once asked for any taxpayer money for IMS, he's never threatened to leave or played political games to get something for free. He just does whatever needs to be done and always does so in a first class fashion.

Indy does know how to handle a BIG event! The track is good yes... Have I seen/ridden better? I think so... but none could handle the crowds as Indy can. Its a different kind of City for sure... I left somewhat impressed... and at the same time... some what let down. Downtown nightlife is kinda lacking.... if not for the GP events going on down there over the weekend.... it would be a ghost town.

And it sure could use another War Memorial or 6! Maybe another 2 or 3 fountains downtown....

I LOVE Tig Bitties!

Actually downtown is hopping on Friday and Saturday nights, not so much on weeknights. Many locals stayed away from downtown last weekend just because of the MotoGP crowd. We do love our war memorials and fountains though!

IMS is the best place in the world. I, like Scott, may be a bit biased. My Grandfather was a sports journalist for the Star, his ashes are on the track. You can almost see it from my Grandma and Grandpa's house. My uncle lives right there too. I have an original brick and an engraved lighter from the Hollmans (from my Grandfather) that are my prize possessions and half of my family were Speedway Sparkplugs. My first 500 I was 5. My uncle was the same. He is 45 years old and has been to 40 consecutive Indy 500's. He said this weekend was the coolest racing he has ever seen though. So like I said I may be a bit biased. Every time I see the track I get goosebumps.

Yeah yeah.... I found the date and am buying tix...

Are you?

Lets get on this.....

Although I may be on a Ducati by then.... drinking latte's at every fuel stop... wearing italian riding gear and acting like I don't even know you. I won't shower for weeks and wreak of foul cologne!

I was 5 seconds from running into the Mark look a like guy on Gas Alley as he was posing with some umbrella girls. I was THIS close to snapping his pic with a hottie on each arm! Then you would have seen your long lost brother!

I LOVE Tig Bitties!
