Maybe so, but the GPoA president quit a while back. Sadly, there are problems there. Hopefully they can be remedied.
It had been a few weeks since Bernie was in the press threatening this, that, or the other race, circuit, or organizer.
<yawn> He is as much of an attention whore at the Kardashians. He is a tiresome little man.
Hey, look. We already have more grass than Bahrain and MMP combined.
Yes, but not where it counts. 90% (educated guesstimate) of the existing grass is in the infield areas. The entire huge GA area between 18 & 19 has no grass, like large portions of other GA areas. It's bare dirt. Pray for dry weather.
I see they're offering shuttles from pre-defined parking locations - that they choose for you, and it says on their website "some parking locations may charge".
Does anybody know how much?
In other words, are we talking $5, or is this going to be one of those "lease some real estate for $25 a day" deals?
How are the general admission areas looking....?
This is upsetting news for some people, as many of them already have downtown hotels booked within walking distance of the downtown shuttle. Now they're being told they may have to get transportation to the other lot and go right past the downtown lot to one several miles away.
As for the cost of parking, remember when COTA kept touting the free bus ride? We've been waiting for the other shoe to drop for some time. Sure, it's "free" bus ride. You just have to pay to park your car in the lot in order to participate. Don't expect the $5 rate.
Re: GA areas, see above. Also, don't plan on seeing anything from the GA area below Turn 10. It's steeply downhill from the track. The others should be great if it doesn't rain.
