Great weekend at COTA. Reconnected with some old friends, and we had a ball. The VIP facilities are going downhill though...food and drinks not up to scratch for the price. Still, the venue and track awesome as usual.
Rossi surprisingly fast here...seems to have found something to get up the ladder. Pity the old guy fell in the race...was looking to be a good race with everyone except MM, who just SLAYED it again this year. The kid is simply sublime around here. Awesome to watch! The little shit! :-)
Cal did his usual thing, but the guy I felt most sorry for...Dovi. To be taken out by Pedrobot (although completely unintentional and should be considered a racing incident IMO), meant the poor guy was taken out twice in a row. That's shit luck.
I must say, the Bot was a class act - going immediately to Dovi to see if he was OK before climbing back on his bike, and then, after the race, going to Dovi to apologize again. Great to see.
Overall, a fantastic weekend. I may take the camper there next year and see what that's like....
