I'm planning on attending Mugello next year. Should be a great season with 4-5 riders regularly fighting for wins.

My dream trip is a euro circuit, following around the races. One of these days...

Still perplexed on why Ducati brought on Lorenzo - I can't think of a worse rider to handle those beasts - the dude needs a rail.

Euro round seems like a good idea. I need to go spend some time with fam over the summer and would love to bookend a week with a couple of GP/BSB/WSBK races (or perhaps Oliver's Mount).

Who? Who are they? LOL! Oh man! I actually copied that list, and when I did, I think the page had been scrolled up, and I missed them! I will edit that post to include these two unknowns!
