2018 MotoGP Ducati Island??

Has anyone heard anything about a 2018 MotoGP Ducati Island ticket option? COTA has always had one available around December, but there’s nothing heading into February?? Hoping COTA and Ducati can put something together for the only US MotoGP event

Yeah, good question. I've been in touch with the COTA people intermittently since December and they tell me it's coming, waiting for an agreement to be signed. Last time was several week ago. Hopefully soon.

ive been to COTA twice and ducati island is free as long as you have a ducati. if you are talking about the seats if i remember correctly its turn 15 that runs along where ducati island is. if you are talking about actual tickets with people from ducati island i dont know anything about that.

^i recall my seating was near turn 12, i was at the end of the long back straight. didn't spend a lot of time sitting there but it was nice to have a seat if you needed one. for the race, they checked your ticket on sunday but i don't think they checked during fp.

not trying to debate the prices and packages but when you get the ducati island package, it came with a goodie bag, gear check, island parking, and entry to that one nice place for snacks, seating, etc. otherwise, ducati island is completely free to everyone, all the ducati exhibits, the bikes, the displays, the store, the rally, etc.

my memory is not always the best but i don't think just any ducati could ride into there "legally" meaning i had to stop at the gate and get a wristband for the bike and they were waving in bikes at the parking area if they looked for the wristband instead of the ducati logo and you had to show a wristband or something to check gear. however, i'm sure if you sped in there with your desmosedici nobody would care.

i'd rather just buy the package again because you get to walk pitlane and ride on the track, we did 2 laps last year.
Thanks from Mrdcook2 and louis041
