It's only around the oval (the infield will be occupied by fans). Let's hope he gets to open it up down the straight!

I'm usually pumped up for all races on new circuits, but since this is Moto GP I'm even more anxious than usual. I really hope their race at Indy is a huge sucess!

"I just need to get it straight with the officials that I don't mind rolling round in second gear waving to the fans, but when I come off Turn 4, the Pace Car needs to hold its line because as I head toward the bricks, I plan to open that baby up a little and blow out the cobwebs a little."

I wouldn't have expected anything less from him. A big honour, way to go Nicky, enjoy that huge moment :up:

and please don't mess it up in front of 400,000 people

wonder if he could drift it round the turns, or get some crazy lean angles going on :)

Since he'll be doing the oval and not the road course, I don't think he'll want to take the risk of slamming into the walls in the turns. However, blasting it down the front stretch would be perfectly acceptable! :)

Come on, he´s not a F1 driver. We´re taking MGP here. It´s a mans sport.
