If you want to go, I can be your guide. Here’s my plan:

I have renewed my hotel reservation at the LaQuinta in Round Rock for Fri/Sat/Sun nights. October 1,2, and 3.

La Quinta Inn & Suites by Wyndham Austin Round Rock
150 Parker Drive, Austin, TX US (512) 246‑2800

I have a General Admission ticket for the weekend.
Ride down Friday and maybe go to the track.
Saturday hit the races for qualifying .
Sunday watch all 3 races and overnight one more time.
Ride home Monday.

Some useful hints and tips:

Seats in turns 15 and 1 are the most coveted, but $$$$ and hard to get. If you buy a seat, try to get up high so you can see more of the other turns. 15 has the best action viewing in my opinion. That’s where Marquez crashed last time. Good passing spot in turn 1. Turn 12 seating is good for watching the bikes come from the back straight at 200+ mph down to 30mph for turn 12 … but it’s a little limited for viewing much other action.

Don’t worry about getting tickets. You can always get a general admission ticket… they don’t run out of those.
I learned my lesson and now get a general admission ticket for $ and bring a fold-up chair and sit in various places in the grass.

I like the back esses, turns 3,4,5 & 6 or 8 and 9 or even turn 11 that leads to the back straight. Good high speed action viewing in 3 thru 6.

There are places in the grass near 16,17,18 and 19 that are pretty good but really crowded (they are closest to the bigger food/drink vendors)

The track is BIG! Pack as light as you can. Be prepared to hike if you go to turn one or the back side of the track.

Motorcycle parking is free but last time they had general MC parking at the far end of the lot and it was a bit of a hike. VIP parking and parking for the various motorcycle groups is better but at extra cost. (cash parking for cars was $25 last time I took my cage)

Food and drinks are expensive so tank up before you go.

I’m a beer drinker and with a tip I was paying $10 per for the beer wagon to come by me.

Bring and wear your sun screen!

If you can get by with just water, there are water refill stations around the track.

Go early and stay late to avoid the traffic.

Off Tollway-130, entry to the backside of track parking on/from Pearce or Elroy have the lightest traffic .

If you have to have a tshirt, get the best one you can afford. don’t get the cheaper white MotoGP shirts…. they fade way too fast.

if you have bags on your bike, bring walking shoes and stash your boots. There is a LOT of walking at this facility!
If the sun is out, bring a little fold-up umbrella for personal shade.
Also for general admission ticket holders. When sitting in the grass, sit at the top of the hill to get every available breeze.
