I'm really trying to get to COTA this year in April, so if that happens, I won't be going to WSBK. Otherwise I'm a maybe at the moment.

Since this is WSBK has  anyone seen the new starting grid rules for race 2? Crazy, essentially the first and third race one starting positions swap places and the entire front row moves to the third row and the second and third rows move up. Meaning row two is now the front row and the third row becomes the second row.

Unless it's an early April Fools joke or a European equivalent, this is the new rule for race 2.

Seems I have to miss this event every so often. Hopefully next year I won't be on a project that has a deadline right in the middle of the event! Unfortunately weekends might disappear on me if the schedule tightens up anymore! If you go, take lots of pics and umbrella girls are a must! Corkscrew pics are second... ;)

O0  Of course!

Me too on both counts!  :7:  I can't wait for the trip. I'll be riding up. See you there.

It will be a sad weekend without The Kentucky Kid there. He's been always been at Laguna for as long as I can remember. It's going to be feel odd without him there.

Received the following in the latest Corkscrew newsletter about the race weekend:

Throughout the event, there will be several tributes to Nicky Hayden, the 2006 MotoGP champion and 2005 and 2006 Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix winner who lost his life due to injuries sustained in a non-racing training accident on May 22. Recognizing the special relationship Nicky Hayden enjoyed with the fans and Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, fans will have the opportunity to salute their hero in some unique ways during the upcoming race weekend.

After racing is concluded for the day on Saturday evening, July 8, there will be a Nicky Hayden Fan Track Walk at approximately 6:30 p.m. When entering the track at Turn 5 from the marketplace, fans are requested to make a voluntary $5 contribution to the Nicky Hayden Memorial Fund. All proceeds collected will be presented to the Hayden Family on Sunday during pre-race activities. The Nicky Hayden Memorial Fund will benefit charities in Nicky’s hometown of Owensboro, Kentucky.

Once arriving at the track for the race weekend, fans will find a large Nicky Hayden sign/poster placed in the Paddock Plaza opposite the souvenir store; fans are encouraged to sign the poster and leave messages of encouragement for the family.

The Paddock Show will be a hive of activity throughout the weekend, and it will be the location of a Nicky Hayden Remembrance Book where fans will be able to leave their thoughts and memories of the superstar rider from Friday through Sunday. The Remembrance Book, along with the signature poster, will be presented to the Hayden Family at the conclusion of the weekend’s activities.

It was a great trip. I rode the FZ6 up and spent the weekend near Cannery Row and at the track. Was able to hook up with luciano136 and wife on Sat & Sun at the track

Did the track walk on Saturday night to pay respects to Nicky Hayden help his memorial fund. Got to walk the entire track, which was pretty awesome. Attached are some Corkscrew perspective photos you don't get to see very often.
