For those going to Indy GP, word is out there’s no Ducati Island but looking at the list of what there is to do with Ducati friends and fans, the weekend is still going to keep us plenty busy. Here’s a list of ways to participate starting with the events that require advance planning:
- The iDesmo club is doing the DOC Dinner again this year (with a few tweeks I heard about yesterday that should enhance the camaraderie and ease of parking) Here is the link to sign up: http://www.idesmo.org/idesmo-events-detail.php?event_id=231 You must sign up and pay in advance prior to the cut off deadline which is fast approaching.
- Duc Pond Motorsports has rented a Suite for Ducati owners overlooking pit lane and if you sign up for this you’ll be be in for the all-in IndyGP VIP Experience – Food, drinks, paddock access and parking. This is THE way to attend what will likely be the last GP at this venue, three days in an Executive, Fully Catered Suite for the Indy MotoGP. For more info on this go HERE or Call Duc Pond Motorsports, you only live once!
- Ducati Grandstand Seats are still available, $125 for three days. All the info is HERE
- Ducati hotel Basecamp is once again at the Drury Hotel on Michigan Ave, all rooms are $99 and include the room gift, breakfast and that great food and drink happy hour Thur/Fri/Sat nights To book this click HERE
Here’s the schedule for the weekend, day by day:
Open House at Ducati Indy, special guests expected. Euro bike night Thursday night, Brockway Pub in Carmel. Drury Ducati base camp hotel starts
Ducati grandstand, track laps, Ducati apparel tent and new bike display, Ducati gift kit tent, Ducati parking, Ducati base
camp hotel, Sprockets on Speedway bike show, iDesmo DOC Dinner Saturday, Duc Pond Pit Lane Suite opens. Also – Make sure you check out the vintage bikes in the Marlboro display – this is going to include a couple of the most important vintage Ducati’s in the country. In addition the Cycle World show starts and I know there will be at least one Ducati single there that will knock your eyes out. Of course there’s the flat track – best place to spot GP rider’s in the wild of any place on the planet all year, not to mention the best racing you’ll maybe ever see. Also Motorcycles on Meridian, great stop on the way home from the Flat Tracks…..
Sunday am – Red Snake Ride from Ducati Indy to the track (police escorted)
There are still plenty of tickets, and rooms to attend the IndyGP weekend. It’s cheap to fly to and a three day General Admission is $70. If you have not been to a GP at Indy it’s unlike any other GP weekend because the track is so big it never gets crowded, getting in and out, walking around, it’s a big venue but there’s no waiting in line, everything flows because it’s designed for four times the number of people any USGP could produce. Hope to see you there!
