Cota

Ok so Lewis Hamilton just won f1 championship at COTA. Watching him on that track is almost as good as seeing MM dominate motogp on that track. I have to go there. So I would like to know the following by people that know because they have actually BEEN there:
1 where is the best place to watch the race and qualifying ( turn 1 back straight etc)
2 are the ticket packages worth it
3 where to go for night life.

2016 Coto motogp I will be there this year no question.
Thanks for your help
Thanks from Gunny Fitz and b9009b

Having just come back from F1, I would say Turn 1 was probably the most exciting place to be, especially right after the start when everyone ran into each other.

I slummed it up with general admission at only 99 dollars a ticket. We had to sit in the mud but that was an anomaly this year. Parking was 10 bucks.

More nightlife then you can take in. There's 6th street, which has tons of bars and clubs, as well as Rainey Street. And many unique restaurants and food trucks.

we've been attending since being and will be going til they don't come anymore. i think the best for me is T15 and we have 3 days passes (about $200) i think from ticket master or you can register with COTA and be on their list. T1 is ok but not great to me. T15 is the best cuz you can see them from back straight and over taking from T12 to 16. you will need to stay in or near downtown area for nite life and parties and there is no other place you want to be
