Cota 2018

Anyone else going for MotoGP? I'll be there

Shut up and ride.

I go several times a year. I'm guessing you're talking about MotoGP?

Went last year. So many people there. There was a line out of the Dainese store the whole weekend lol. Lots of great deals from all vendors though. Tried to go on a test drive but you have to get there when they open each morning to reserve the model you want to ride. Never got there early enough to ride anything worth while. And you have to walk around with your motorcycle gear until itís time for your demo. You can check your motorcycle gear at the front gates. I must have walked about 20 miles over the weekend. Had to park a mile away and pay $20 to park there. Then had to pay some guy on a bicycle with a cart on the back to take us to the gate. That was another $10 dollars.

If I go again, I will be doing things very differently.

Just Uber there, Uber back. The cost may end up being the same but you don't have the stresses with parking, riding in a buggy and you get dropped usually at the front gate. That's unless you can have someone drop you off and pick you up. That's the best way IMHO. A lot of the time I work COTA when it's worth it to me time/money wise, but if not, I just have the wifey just drop me off. We live 15 minutes away in the sticks so it's not that bad.

I definitely recommend going. You get to see so many levels of racing. Motoamerica, Moto 2, Moto 3, and Moto GP. Practice, qualifying, and racing for all of them. Plus all the manufactures bring out there new bikes to sit on and take pics with. Every single vendor is selling stuff at huge discounts. Demo rides, food trucks, live entertainment. It is a good time, but do it right like suggested above.

Next time I go (not this year) I will be doing the VIP Hospitality Experience.

COTA VIP HOSPITALITY INCLUDES:

Unlimited access each day to a paddock suite directly above the team garages
Access to the MotoGP paddock
Gourmet food options all weekend long
Open bar featuring beer, wine, liquor and soft drinks
Breathtaking views of the start/finish lines, pre-race ceremony and COTA's iconic Turn 1
Pit Lane walk on Saturday and Sunday at scheduled times
Commemorative ticket and lanyard
One free parking pass in Lot A for every four tickets purchased
