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.

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.

Well got my tickets, just paid $43 to ride my bike, and ordered my free Kevin shirt. Won't be going again to COTA unless something big changes. The local paper is already arm waving about low attendance.

$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. 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.

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.

I'll be there. I have a GA ticket and spent the $30 for moto parking as well. I contacted this guy and plan to camp there at the moment.

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.

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.
