Okay, so your lowly admin is looking to go to the show.
Where is a good place to sit?

And anyone help me out in a place to sleep? Any hotels worthy of the head hitting the pillow?

I went last year but don't think its in the cards this year. Anyway I sat in the stands across the track from the Ducati seats and they were excellent. The Ducati seats are o.k. but don't have quite as good of view. That said you are in the Ducati fan area which is cool + you get a few extra perks I think. However you can go over there at anytime and visit if you don't do the Ducati package. The Ducati area is by far the best factory setup at the race. It was last year anyway.

If I can make one suggestion, its get a seat up higher in the stands, gives you better views........

Have fun...
