    I’m fairly confident in what I was told about the ticket sales beginning the last part of February. As far as the shuttles, I don’t expect there to be any concrete info until a month or two before the race. However, it went pretty well with the shuttles this year, so I anticipate pretty much the same. One shuttle location downtown by the Convention Center & several shuttle lots within a few miles of the track. These however would require a car to get to. Also, with regards to parking….Lot Q which is the cheapest($60 of for the weekend) & located roughly at the intersection of 812 & 21, has shuttles that drop you off within 100 yards of the T11 entrance gate. The downtown & remote shuttles will drop you at McAngus & Elroy & will require about a 3/4 mile walk to the entrance at the Grand Plaza. This is the closest entrance to the T15 grandstands. They have a shuttle at that entrance that will take you from that point to the Main Grandstand/T1 and another that will take you to T11. If you will be going to the grandstands between T2 & T9, it is easiest to enter the Grand Plaza gate & then take the two pedestrian bridges to there.

    Thought I would let you guys know, I was able to reserve seats by calling COTA last Friday. The info is not public, but it seems tickets are on sale since they’re listed at Formula1.com as well. Will be sitting at turn 5, a little sad to hear the response to the sound, but still excited nonetheless!

    I paid for my Season Tickets today….Friday was the deadline. They sent me pricing info for all the tickets last week & looks like they are pretty much the same as last year. A little more info I’ve found out the last few days….. The dry camping will probably be moved to Lot F, from Lot M this year & reduced the cost to $400 & not include the 4 GA tickets. One reason for this is to reduce the parking in F & associated traffic on CoTA Blvd, as they want to do the shuttle drops closer to the Grand Plaza instead of on McAngus Rd where the have the last two years.

    Thanks for the update Michael, I’m relieved to find out we won’t have to walk half a mile each way from the shuttle stops this year..

    Hopefully they will be able to do that this year…..it could revert back though. You never know what CoTA is going to do until the last minute though…lol! Still, even at a half mile, it’s a shorter walk than where the shuttles drop you at Monza!

    Looking forward to take my bike onto the track for a parade lap this weekend when they have the viewing party for the Qatar MotoGP race….pretty good chance for rain this weekend though, so they may not do it.

    Bumping this thread… I will be at this race. We have seats for T12 grandstand for the weekend. Hoping to see some other F1Fs at some point during the weekend. Looking forward to my first live F1 race since Canada 2008.
