I just recieved a text saying they may sell out so i want to buy my tickets and considering the $400 tickets. We are going Saturday and Sunday and wanted to see if anyone had done these vip tickets. We won't have many chances to see a gp and want to get the full experience. Also i usually stay at my buddies ranch on 200 acres when i used to race there for many years but have not talked to him in awhile, where is a nice hotel around there?

VIP tickets are worth every penny - shade, tent seating, bathrooms, beer, food. Just bring butt pads for the seats.

1) $400 per ticket? Does that come with fried chicken and waffles and champagne?

2) that race is gonna be awesome!

3) track down your buddy and send him some flowers and chocolates and ask for his forgiveness for not staying in touch, then ask him for a room, OR take your wife to a Bed and Breakfast up there in Ocala or Gainesville. There's some really nice ones up there. Your wife will think your the man all the way to next years race!

Wife and I are considering the same tickets. Swannbro makes it sound good. We only live 50 miles from there, so hotel not needed.

The GP VIP package usually does include lunch and beverages.

Why VIP?? It's a MX event! Buy a beer and a damn hotdog and you're good for the weekend. 100 bucks each.

They had a limited number, not sure if they are gone though. I would check real quick!

OP, are you referring to the VIP tickets selling out, or the event tickets? Because I really can't imagine an American promoter (or Luongo, for that matter) turning down your money at the gate.

Braaapin' aint easy.

Full hookups are sold out! I'm happy for Gatorback. We will purchase the VIP package. Florida is about to show MX Sports how much we miss having a Nat.

Yea hook ups are few and usually a lotto system but for this event im sure there is none available.

I have stood, sat and slept all over that property over the 30 years racing there. I just wanted to maybe splurge it out and see what the top ticket really included. So many great (and bad) memories there. That track changed how i walk these days and i have a lot of my greatest racing moments there too so I love that place and want the best experience for my wife for two days as well. Its been a few years for her but she loves it, we were also all over from top to bottom at Colorado too and had a blast but my ankles are pretty bad sometimes. Thanks for the replys. Its going to be excellent. I have been following the gp's my whole life and respect the hell out of those guys.

How much is a Sunday general admission ticket? I think I paid $50 at the gate for the GP at Glen Helen back in 2011.

What stands? They dont have any stands. Fire marshal won't let them keeps stand on the property, only on races they can have stands brought in. The ones the do bring in that sit behind the starting gate only old around 100 people..

OK, pulled the trigger on VIP tickets. We will be there, but probably just for Sunday.

Any Vital bros in the area may show up at Harry's place for a pre-party on Saturday. Yes, there will be plenty of smoked meats, gator tail, swimming and general buffoonery, monkeyshines, hi-jinks, skylarking, etc. .If you decide to jump off the roof into the pool, you do so at your own risk. Additionally, if you miss the pool and go over the fence into the swamp you agree I cannot be held responsible for cottonmouth strikes or damages caused by gators.

Oh, almost forgot another disclaimer. Our house is going on the market tomorrow. If it should sell before September, then all bets are off unless you want to come to the RV park we will be living in while our new house is built. That park is pretty nice and does have a big pool and a very nice lake to swim in. There are no gators in the lake, so you won't have to be concerned about getting your face chewed off.
