WSBK - Laguna Seca - July 13th

Is anybody from MH going? I'm treating myself to VIP status this time for the first time. Gone to Laguna 4 times and love the venue and the racing the track brings. Been to motogp when they were still holding the race and this will be my first wsbk race to watch.

Leave Thursday morning, plan on getting some badass pics and sharing from right above the garages

Anyone else going??

I'll be there. Saturday only though. Been there since the 90s. I love laguna. Other than $$$ I can't see why they dropped Laguna over Indy. I thought Indy sucked in comparison.

The article I read said facilities are lacking at Laguna , it's a pain to get the trucks and everything there and Laguna was too busy with all the other series that race there.

Agreed though Laguna is a better track than Indy by far.

It's a Shame if that's the case, being a pain getting haulers in and out. The track itself is beautiful, with it's crowd friendly view points and incredible elevation changes. It's my top pick to watch motorcycle racing from for sure.

Have fun on Saturday, iceman. Hopefully we will see a cracking qualifying session

That's where we sat the first time. It's a good place to watch from, you've got a big screen right there for once the pass turn 5, you can watch the rest of the track.
We did the flag room the year before last and it was pretty badass. The food and drinks were included, I drank my off in there!

If I remember correctly I read something about LS facility only offering to accommodate the premier class leaving out moto2 and moto3. So the sanction opted to find a different track to add to the schedual to please the fans and aid the other classes. I believe that is why Argentina was added to the list. I could be wrong. Either way it is a shame because LS is a great track.

Sounds about right. Everytime I've gone, they mix AMA in the Sunday races with supersport, Daytona sportbike and superbike with motogp. At least, before they stopped making the stop to Laguna.

At least we have wsbk, looking forward to checking it out.

Honestly, I think the WSB/AMA show was way better than MotoGP. The crowds were just the right size, the paddoc was wide open, even the prices on vendor row were a whole lot better. I was excited when MotoGp came back, but did mis the WSB days.

Sounds about on par with what my brother told me. I'm all about a smaller crowd for sure. Sundays were always a mad house for motogp since I've been going, I'm looking forward to watching wsbk in person.

It's badass from above the garages. Talked with several of the wsbk guys so far and Tom Sykes is by far the coolest cat in the paddock. Told him I'll see him on top of the box and he jokes and says I don't know, we will see. Then breaks the lap record !!

Experience is awesome thus far, way less people than the motogp race. I'll upload some photos I got from this weekend. All the wsbk guys are supercool, laid back and friendly. Guintoli photo bombed a pic with me and Leon camier lol

All so know is I've taken 650 pics with some fantastic, framing worth photos. This trip tops every one I've done in the past. Y'all missed some good racing today. AMA superbike is about to roll
