V8 Supercars Austin Tx May 17th-19th *TICKETS ONSALE OCT 16TH*

http://www.autoguide.com/auto-news/2...7-19-2013.html

With this event just around the corner and tickets going on sell Oct 16th... I wanted to make a thread so we can see what type of numbers/turnout we might have. Is everyone planning on going for one specific day or the entire weekend? This is going to be an amazing event and I dont want to miss it!


So who is going or planning on going?

6. anyone else?

We are going to park at the Travis County Expo Center and take bus shuttle over. Parking is ridiculous at COTA due to the 50-90,000 people it services each day - hour waits in line or more to find parking according to friends who went to the MotoGP last month!

Anyone want to carpool? Just found out there won't be any shuttle buses. Parking only at $30 rape PER DAY in an unpaved lot.

I am pissed, more so because no coolers, food or beverages allowed. I am ready to lose my $130 and say f**k the whole thing...

3 days in the heat paying their inflated prices for junk food... This is pretty damned terrible.

512-659-0005 is my cell. Call or text. It will be just my brother and me. Also I no longer have contact info for Pollshark. New cell, same #. Lost all old contacts...

Pulled from COTA website:

Parking Info:
All lots will open at 7:00 AM Friday thru Sunday. On Friday lots will stay open until 9:00 PM. Saturday and Sunday lots will stay open until 8:00 PM.
There will be NO 3 day event parking passes on sale at the Circuit on event days.
Cash parking will be available in Lots E, F, G, and P (all unpaved) for $30 per day.
There will be enough cash lot parking to accommodate our guests.
There will be NO in and out parking privileges, no exceptions.
Please keep in mind that there will be NO shuttle service to and from the track.
If you have not done so, we encourage you to purchase your parking pass in advance to help alleviate your time of travel.
3 day parking passes are no longer available.
No pedestrians, with or without a ticket, or vehicles without the proper credentials will be admitted into the circuit. Bicycles can park for free at the back of Lot C.

FYI, I have Lookout on my Galaxy SIII and it backs up your contacts and photos daily, if you lose your phone or smash it up beyond repair like I did my EVO, you just go online and add your new phone and restore it.

By the way, I will be in parking lot P, seating at turn 1 all three days.
