I hope to have all the details on our trip to MotoGP at Indy by next month! We have around 20 or so bikes going down for the long weekend. Not sure if we are camping or doing the Hotel

Got tix, just can't decide if I want to ride from CO or not. I plan to buy sum merch. I know Laguna is a mad house, what kind of crowd will show in Indy?

I've done F1 at Indy lots of fun with the Euro folks but having the Duc Teams is very cool. We are thinking about camping in Anderson then riding bikes in each day.
Only a 4 hour drive south for us. Having the trucks in case of rain,that month could be hot or wet or both.

Anyone else from Illinois going to this. I'll return to Hawaii when my deployment ends in June, then I'm moving to Southwest Illinois around August 1st. I would love to go, but not alone. For those staying in Hotels, how are you going to secure your Duc at night. Mike.

I just bought 3 tickets to sit in the Project Mugello Desmo Owners Club grandstand. Also, staying at the Holiday Inn Express Airport South. Mike.

I wanted to give you an update on where we are to date with "Project Mugello".

DUCATI GRANDSTAND:

As of today, Zach Huston at the speedway is starting to assign seats and charge everyone's card. If you want a 100% guarantee you will be seated with your friends, you need to call in the next couple of days. He's going to leave some seats open next to each club for people that call in and ask to be added but the grandstand is down to just a couple hundred seats left so it's reasonable to assume this will sell out and sooner is better than later if you want to be part of this fun and historic part of the weekend.

PUTNAM DUCATI ONLY TRACK DAY SPONSORED BY DUCATI INDY:

Tickets are on sale for $170 for Novice, Intermediate and Advanced track time. The link is up on SportBike Track Time:

Scroll down until you see DUCATI ONLY Putnam Park

STT is looking for STT Instructors that ride Ducati's. Please contact Mark at [email protected] if you would like to be involved. It's important that we make this FULLY a Ducati only day and instructors on Non-Ducs does not send the message that we as Ducati Owners Club "super enthusiasts" are trying to send so lets make sure we spread the word on this. (Thanks Mark, as always for your help!)

Plans are still forming as to what else will be going on at the track this day but Demo rides are expected as is $10 charity donation touring laps behind a control rider. I also expect there will be a nice lunch offered. Details as they solidify but this day will certainly sell out well in advance so if you or your members plan to take part I strongly suggest you get signed up.

HOTELS:

We still have a few left. Here are the choices of the three that have rooms in the immediate area of the DOC Central hotel, the Country Inn and Suites, where the parking lot activities will be centered. All "Ducati Hotels" are on the North side of town near the Ducati Indy dealer where the Thursday night open house will be held, so roughly 15 miles from the racetrack itself. These hotels are for Ducati owners and traveling companions only.

Holiday Inn - This hotel has a huge parking lot to accommodate trailers and has a top rated sports bar and a 50,000 square foot water park on the grounds - $179 per night for single King rooms. Booking code is Project Mugello. 317-872-9790 (They may have some doubles available but we don't have a negotiated rate for those so I think they are $229)

Red Roof Inn - This is a newly redone hotel, they still have singles and doubles. $105 per night. Speak to Vicki, the hotel manager to book. Booking code Project Mugello. 317-418-0981
