    I spoke to one team manager during the last race at Indy and he was very surprised when I told him that might be the last race at Indy. Of course it’s about money, that time DORNA didn’t want to flip the bill for the 3 747’s bringing the equipment back and forth to Europe, and neither was Indy.

    I was pretty surprised as well when we got there and all we heard all weekend was how this was probably the last race, yet the attendance both at the track and downtown were incredible.

    By the way, just an FYI on my commuting experiences this past weekend for those who have never been and were curious about this like I was. I never dealt with any of the 1/2/3 hour driving times that people were describing on this and some other internet sites.

    I don't know if its a matter of hyperbole/exaggeration or if COTA has gotten much better with moving people in and out of the place but I was staying at a hotel just beyond the airport and on Saturday after the SBK race I timed it exactly 45 minutes to get from my seat in the T15 grandstand to my hotel room. The walk to the parking lot and the drive were about equal amounts of time.

    I can only speak for my experience coming in/out through the north side of the track on Kellam Rd and parking in Lot F. I'd recommend this approach as opposed to the main entrance that comes in off of 812 as I'm guessing that might be busier, but yeah I found traveling to and from the track all weekend to be quite reasonable.

    You ask Yamaha to send you to their Champions Riding School and have them teach you how to do holeshots and learn racecraft?

    Or they give you a special 7 gallon endurance tank and make you practice with that filled to the brim so that when you have a full tank at the start of the race you can handle it instead of going backwards...

    It was definitely TC we were hearing...it was the same sounds a bunch of the bikes were making just Toni’s bike seemed to have it kicking in sooner/longer than the rest. Either way it sounded awesome!

    Toni definitely uses a lot of TC....him at jersey coming out of turn 4, you can watch him pin it at the apex and just hear that thing do everything but make a clean exhaust note. Sounds awesome every time
