Moto GP at Circuit of The Americas

A group of us in Dallas are heading to Austin in April for the Moto GP race at the new track. Being so new I cannot find any valuable information about motorcycle parking at the track. Did anyone go to the F1 race there that may have some insight on moto parking or know where I can find some info?

Second, is anyone else planning on going down....will we see any other ADV'ers down there looking for a spot to park?

I am going with a friend. He bought the tickets but said something about buying 3 day tickets and paying extra for parking at the time he bought the tickets. Dunno if that helps.

Where exactly IS the new Circuit of tha Americas located on
a map? Are there any private property owners in the neighborhood
who might offer cheap tent camping spots for motorcyclists as at
Indianapolis?
And what is this business about charging for parking of bikes ?
Isn't it reasonable to expect that the spectators will be coming with their
own transportation and need somewhere to park the old bike or car
away from track view lines.?
Sure it cost money to build the plain acres of parking but should that not be factored into the ticket price so avoiding the image of nickel and diming general
admission spectators for every little facet. Are the porta- potties going to be with
coin operated doors and toilet paper dispensers too?
Looking forward to visiting the races but have no need to use the executive lounges
behind glass high and far from the. noise and smell of the racing.

Look a mile or two southeast of Austin Bergstrom Airport on Texas 45 Toll road. I saw a post about an ADV'er offering camping space on his land 15 miles away.

Do they expect each bike to take up only one parking spot? Why charge every bike full price for parking. I would have gladly shared a spot with another 1-2 bikes. You know?

WE are caging it out there. While we will be at the race track during the days, we will be checking out the microbreweries afterwards. Any one wanting to meet up with us? Any suggestions to which breweries to go to? Restaurants? We will be staying around I-35 and US290. PM if interested...

Not sure which ones we are going to just yet. I will talk to some brewing buddies to see where the better ones are. We are gonna try to stay on the south side of Austin. Any suggestions? You staying at McKinney Falls? Did you get your parking pass?

I got a three day dedicated motorcycle parking spot in lot H. Supposed to be motorcycles only and looks like easy access to the main gate. Looking forward to the event.

I wish I had known that. My buddy already bought our tickets, I am not exactly sure what he bought but he didn't make any indication it was moto only.
