If it happens I'm totally there no questions asked. I watched F1 there about 5 times. Yeah it's not the best venue for a road course but I'll take what I can get!!!

*fingers crossed*

Indy is a hoot.
Ran my bike there 2 years ago on the track, was pretty cool.
Andrea Iannone ran over my foot with his scooter and had a drink and long conversation with Cal Crutchlow. Would love to see it come back.
Leguna Seca will be on the bucket list for 2016

I'll agree that track itself at Indy it too flat and sometimes boring, but the charm is the the whole place that makes Indy.
I have never been to Laguna Seca and would love to get there some day.
I have been to COTA for the first F-1 race, and the track is world class. I'm hoping to get out there again to see moto, but the weather in April is sketchy(riding of course), I missed the moto by one day last year when I visited a friend near Austin, because I was weather dodging.

I am hopeful Indy can get the event back again but will believe it when I see it. I agree the track leaves a little to be desired but what a great place for a race! Last year I had pit passes and met Eugene Laverty and his beautiful bride. He's a lucky, lucky man!

Indy has a great GP, I think the best!

Since COTA is the only race these days for us here in the states for MotoGP, sad really as COTA is a the worst of any of these 3 tracks. Laguna Seca is classic, Indy just has so much history in racing.

I've been to all of them and dislike COTA the most, but for the racers COTA is the best, newest/fastest/smoothest/widest. I'd come back out for Indy MotoGP again!
