Track Org going to Circuit of the Americas in June 2013

A Texas motorcycle school is going to COTA (Circuit of the Americas) for a track event. 2 days, they are selling dates per each day.
So if there was a bucket list item to cross off, this I think would fit in quite nicely. World class venue, smooth as buttter surface and instruction from the school's instructors.
Anyways, here are more details from their site - lifted it from a post they made recently:


Ride Smart at Circuit of The Americas!!
That's right, Ride Smart will be at Circuit of The Americas
June 1 and 2, 2013
Sign up begins December 20, 2012

$460
per DAY!

We anticipate registration will go quick.
We have arranged a slightly different format to accommodate demand for Circuits of The Americas in that
we will be offering two Level 2 groups, as traditionally Level 2 fills the quickest. Groups are capped low
for your enjoyment on the 3.4 mile, 20 turn track.
4 Groups
Level 1
Level 2A
Level 2B
Level 3
In order to make sure that everyone receives the same time on track as a normal Ride Smart trackday, you will be running
20 minute sessions, starting at 8:00am and going until 6:30pm with a lunch break.
Saturday, June 1st will also feature our Advanced Riders Course in Level 3.
In addition to the bike cam footage, critique and advanced riding instruction
there will be an emphasis on "Line Building Techniques" during this class.
We are also offering a 50/50 registration.
Put down 50% now and we'll hold your spot, you can pay the remainder by February 25, 2013 (plus a $20 service fee).
See our website for additional information about Ride Smart.
No refunds, account credits, or cancellations allowed. Transfers to other persons allowed.
All 50/50 payments must be completed and paid in full by 2/25/2013 or the initial payment will be forfeited.
No discounts, coupons, codes, or other incentives allowed.

I wonder if fastline will try to get one there too. I knew when any org did a day there, it'd be mega bucks.

I'd be surprised if FastLine has the capital. That's a $50k + facility to rent.

$460 for one day?!?!?!?! I can run Laguna Seca for $250. I would never pay that much to run any track.

04 Acura TL. Total grandma car.
06 Frontier Nismo. Meh, it's ok.
06 636. Just sits in the garage keeping everyone else company.
06 Pitster Pro GPX 125. It's planing on killing me.
07 GSXR750 Trackbike. The abuser.

CotA is probably going to end up being one in the top 5 tracks in the world. Laguna Seca is not. Although I'd love to ride there.

+1 on that one. Laguna is not a smooth track (not at least until they repaved) then I ve been hearing the bumps are coming back.
This one looks smooth as butter and brand spanking new.
For $460, they run the track from like 8 until 6:30pm so the event is much longer too. I still think it would be well worth it, especially since they are sticking their necks out to stage this. Plus, isnt barber around $400 per day from most orgs anyway? This sure beats barber (forgetting the museum, etc).

who is this?

I've done a couple of trackdays with Ridesmart and have nothing but good things to say about them. I really wish I could go to this one but it's just not on the budget for next year. If any of you are thinking about it, do it!! The track is absolutely fantastic and this folks put on a great track day.
