MotoGp at COTA

What seats do you guys recommend for a nice view? This will be my first GP and trying to see what you guys might recommend or which corners to seek tickets for. Hey maybe one of you guys won't be able to go and want to sell your tickets. Let me know guys

Turn 15. Can walk around with those tickets and see the rest of the GA area too. A weekend sitting on a grass hill gets old quick.

Turn 1 stands are limited at the moment due to a storm last year so only a couple sections being sold for MotoGP this year.

GA is really the way to go. However, we had main grandstand seats, and all the livery and start of the race was pretty nice to be near and be a part of. I could have thrown a rock and hit Keanu Reeves.

I had hors d'oeuvres with him at the hotel.

And by that I mean, I recognize him, and sat next to him in silence because I figured he didn't wanna be bothered. And at one point we made eye contact and I gave him the "I know..." nod, and he nodded back. And shortly thereafter a group of girls came and took a picture with him and he left immediately after because he clearly hates being bothered.

Anyway, to OP... I like turn 1 grandstand every time I'm at CotA. But general admission is really good for MotoGP, unlike Formula 1 where there are so many grandstands that it's hard to see (at least when I went several years ago). Turn 15 is also good.

Main GS.
Always the safest bet as the weather could be rain or hot.
You can get the covered seats or go in the bar area to keep dry or cool if needed.

Race day traffic is a nightmare.
I go for practice and qualifying the relax at home with my motogp subscription for the races

Now if i get my buddy to fly in with his whirly bird.
I might go on race day.
Hehe

I usually stay in 12-15. Best spot for most turns. I also did GS one year. It was cool too but it got old. I was wishing for my porta-chair by that time. Also at turns 12-15 you come out of the stands to vendor booths and ducati tent/Honda/yamah or whoever has those spots that year. Plus the riders can see you closer. I swear to Rossi waived hello to just me. I swear it

We always get GA and setup at turn 7 and move between that and turn 11. We take chairs with the shade built in and it's a good spot. Only issue I have is that they never turn the screens on at that spot.
