I have done it the last few years. Yes, they do work you.

You will be out on the track by 7-7:30 and not coming off till around 5pm.

Don't get me wrong, its a cool experience. You get the best seats in the house. You will meet people from all over the world who paid big $$$ to come here and be a track Marshall. If you pick a corner wisely (T11 Alpha gets a ton of action). If you want to watch, choose 11. If you want to pick bikes up get 11A....

i would recomend not camping unless you got a pop up, trailer, or rv

its rough especially for working those long hours

sat morning will be brutal and sunday morning will be worse

rooms are cheap downtown and bus shuttles people back and forth

pm me yalls name and phone#, and we can setup a group chat, ill drop off extra sandwhichs, drinks, whatever if you need em.

I stayed at my first hostel in CR late last year and had a blast. However, I did have my own room and shower.

There is discount rates available for those who singed up.

You should have gotten an email with a link to make reservations for the motel.

thats why I figured I'd be better off camping.

bought a spot today, only plan on tent camping (never lucky enough for trees to hammock camp)

I also plan on riding my bike there, so I'll have plenty of space in anyone wants to crash lol

yeah I'll be in lot N also. I may not ride my bike, I ordered a set of panniers and them plus the rack is back ordered for "4 to 6" weeks. I'm not trying to tote around a tent and air mattress

Thx for the offer Rt, but I should be ok. I read in the rules they dont allow cargo trailers or anything similar, I was hoping on an excuse to get a nice 6x12.

A lot of their rules don't get followed or enforced. I normally never leave the grounds and I bring my tw200 as a pit bike.
