There is a meetup group planning to meet at the entrance of the COTA track. They will have a free track tour and facilities arranged by an org out of Houston. Including track drive, tower, etc.
Tour starts at 12pm sharp. All interested need to be at parking lot A before then. here are some details from the meetup group.

lets all go there and wear some Kevin Schwantz shirts...wonder what they will say, maybe add Tavo pics to that too.

My chances for this are decreasing by the minute.
Have 3 kids, each has sports to play every Saturday.
So tomorrow, I have to drive an hour to get my oldest son to football by 8am to the field (game starting 9am).
My middle son has football starting at 9am at a location that is about an hour away from other son's.
My daughter (youngest) has soccer starting at 11:30am about 30 min away from my middle son.
To add to that, found out wife has to work this Saturday (in medical industry, you do not often get to say no to over time work).

So trying to sell off some kids to go with friends, but still have to take daughter...still trying to her off too, but looking grim at this time.

Well, life with kids.

I've spent hours trying to allocate my kids and I think I will have time.
Have to do a whole bunch of driving really early but looks like I freed up between 11 and 3:30. So hope to see anyone who is heading that way. Will try to wear a Ride Smart shirt too.

C u.

I'll be riding up on my bike, so look for the dude dragging around a jacket wearing moto boots with a backpack.

Bet they'll say it's against the circuit dress code.

...really..they actually have one; smart casual dress and no displays of offensive material as determined by COTA Mgmt of course.

I like the idea of wearing KS tshirts. I sense a business opportunity at corner lot gas stations and park and ride spots. Have fun on the tour.

So how many of you went? I did and I must say it was really nice and surprising how well the track looked.
did not get to drive on the track as promised due to a lambo group renting last minute, but got to see a proud owner of a yellow lambo burn out a clutch right in front of us at T15/T16, parking his thing right in the middle of the turn, then pulling over and stopping - right at the exit point of that turn...
