Anyone attended the Austrian GP?

Was thinking of going next year...Spielberg seems like such a gorgeous setting...and Condor flies direct Anchorage to Frankfurt.

Anyone been that might offer their thoughts?

Its good, plenty of close camping, weather can be a bit dodgy but the last to years race day has been perfect, lots of screens, good views, this year we were on the corner where Marquez was going inside Dovi a couple of times by the KTM stand, I will put up a couple of pics if you fancy, go if you have the chance, there is a couple track days coming up in Oct but the weather can come in real fast in the Alps but its the track for the Pani with three straights and good for me as I dont do corners!
Thanks from Phl and MMC

Nobody can argue how slow one is in corners if he just does not do them!

Phl has a point, its hard to say which is the most beautiful, Mugello location like the Red Bull is worth to go just to see and if anyone is into history Mugello area is on the WW2 Gothic line, look up the Futa pass, Imola, love the town and the park its in, Misano/ Rimini area I dont like but it gets better if you head out for great riding towards San Marino but it next to the sea, dirty but warm! I did the Ducati SBK experiance at Mugello and that track puts a huge smile on your face and will try to get back next month if the weather picks up, found a couple more corners on that one!

Yea...I thought the countryside around Spielberg looked so pretty. I'm not really looking to spend time in a dirty city area.... That's just me though....

Booked tickets...hotels in Graz already full! Hotels around the track are waiting until schedule is finalized before releasing rooms...gotta plan early!

I got tickets in A-grandstand North as I thought it'd be a cool place to see overtakes, etc...the Duc's kicking a--!

Anyway...anyone that's been...any thoughts on ticket packages, etc? Especially in relation to Ducati....
