KEWL!!! After 4 nights in the Mugello track campground, I reckon 45 mins would be about the ride limit before sleep deprivation takes over........got an address?
Just kidding, but yeah, it'll be awesome alright!

They are out in the hills east of Florance....its a fucking UBER ride at usual Italian speeds to Bologna or Modena, last time I was there we just stayed in Bologna and partied until they closed the discos and stumble fucked it back to the track and took a nap (GP practice makes a hell of an alarm clock)

I went to Mugello in -06... too bad I had decided to stay at a crappy and overpriced POS for a hotel, that was about 30 kms from the track in the middle of nowhere. Even in the daytime, the campgrounds on the track area really seemed like the place to be (but not, if you wish to get any sleep I think... )!!

One doesn't travel to Europe for a GP......to sleep, you can sleep it off on the way back home

I'm thinking that if Marquez puts himself in the top 3 then it's gonna be a long season battling him for the other guys. He sure looked like the old pro taking that win at COTA.

edit: but.... Rossi is gonna pull the rabbit out of the hat and win this one

This track tends to keep riders more bunched up with lots of bumping and passing.
Could be a very exciting race.

Life is too short. Get your priorities straight.

(but I do understand).

I fear this weekend we will see Nick Harris choking on the ejaculate of a certain little Spaniard.

Yes, if you observe closely the the logarithmic rate of increased, overt adoration towards the Spaniard from Harris over the course of the last two grands prix, we are just moments away from that very awkward situation.

I think the results of this race will be the same as Qatar.

Lorenzo
Rossi
Marquez
Pedrosa
Crutchlow
