Just home from the US GP at Laguna Seca. What a weekend.
Many thanks to my great friends at Bridgestone Tires; in particular, Rory and Brian. They are the best and most affable crew in US motorsports. Not only did we get the VIP treatment under the Bridgestone tent the entire weekend, but also the grand backstage tour this morning after the MotoGP guys warmed up.
We saw a bunch of famous faces passing to and fro from the motorhomes to the garages. I got to meet several of the Brigestone Engineers and the truck crew. They even introduced me to the Director of MotoGP Tire Development, fer chrissakes. I stumbled through a three minute conversation with him and tried really hard not to be your average dumb American. I thanked him and the team for their hospitality and he seemed pretty stoked about being at Laguna.
Another one for the books, folks.
