We have tried during previous INDY GP's to secure a location to gather all the Ducati owners in one place and throw a party and this year we secured an annual INDY GP event with the Speedway Chamber of Commerce! We worked with the Ferrari Club of America so from bikes to cars it shapes up to be a big Italian gathering.

We hope everyones able to attend and enjoys the event!

Sounds like fun to me. I'll be in Indy Thursday night. Participants from the Wichita area are welcome to ride there with a friend and me. We will be leaving Wednesday, staying in St. Louis Wednesday night, stopping for lunch in Moonshine, Illinois, and arriving in Indy mid afternoon.

I'll be down Thursday. We'll see what the rest of the DRILL members want to do Friday night but this sounds like a very good option.

Looking forward to seeing everyone make the event. Food and drink will be available for purchase via Dawson's and we took care of all the other costs ie. permits, DJ, facilites, trash, clean up, security, street closures, fire/rescue and awards through sponsorships.

Bike show entry fee is $5.00 and includes any motorcycle entry to park on Main St pays the same amount because we are required to provide parking pucks.

Speedway recently went through a complete renovation and they don't want any holes punched through the freshly laid asphalt from our kickstands.

Hence why we have to provided everyone parking a puck

Here's to hoping everyone can swing the $5.00 :D

Don't bring a bike to park??? Cost is $0.00

2012 Indy Mile Indiana State Fair Grounds, W. 38th Street
The Legendary Lucas Oil Indy Mile will run again! Saturday, August 18, 2012
Again in conjunction w/ The Red Bull Indianapolis GP weekend and as a feature of the Indiana State Fair.
Witness riders pitch their machines sideways into the turns, inches apart from each other, at top speeds. Drafting on the long straights keeps the field close and provides the closest finishes in motorcycle racing. The legendary Indy Mile Flat Track is renowned for fast racing, intense drafting wars and multiple lead changes on every lap. Often a photo finish camera is needed to reveal the winner at the end of the furious 25-lap finale.

Good job, Old Racer. Don't forget the added activities downtown...

Gen Con Indy 2012: Home

I've been watching Big Bang Theory to study up.
Oh yeah, I forgot about that! Makes for a very entertaining time standing at a bar next to a herd of Stormtroopers or pissing in a urinal next to Darth Vader. :alien:
I guess those of us who wear full leathers whenever we ride won't stand out in the downtown crowd this year! :D
