jmlmjmjm - Thanks for the response. Care to explain why Indy is better? I would think the Laguna event would be better due to that weekend being a AMA and MOTOGP event.
Moto GP Laguna cons:
Only Moto GP, no Moto 2 or 125's. Yes I know the AMA comes but even that is watered down with not all the classes.
Can't view a great deal of the track, some of the best viewing spots are on dirt (literally), over track access to the infield is always jammed up, parking is tough, (you will shuttle unless you ride in), sound system & video monitors not that great.
Fantastic location with great parties in downtown Monterey, hip CA vibe, legendary track and turn (corkscrew).
Indy Moto GP cons:
I struggle here....
The facility and staff know how to host a function (Indy 500), they excel at making you feel welcome, more seating with better sightlines (go as high as you can), all grass infield with berms built up for seating and viewing, more and better facilities (bathrooms), a museum in the infield, better sound and more screens, you can park at the track, a very good downtown block party (Fri-Sat nights), all the streets are renamed to legendary motorcyle racers, the whole town knows why you are visiting.
Plus, plus, plus, AMA Mile Dirt Track racing on Saturday night!
One shining example of doing it right:
You can pre-order a box lunch and pick it up upon arrival. It has everything you need for a full day of racing, chicken, baked beans, a half sandwich, chips, cookie, cole slaw, apple, and drinks....theoretically you do not need to leave your seat as it's all there.
When my wife and I talk of going again it is always Indy.
Hope that helps...
