sitting in the main grandstand, large enough for 4000 fans!! From here I could see right into Rossi's garage. The medical centre is to the right of the very tall building. It has med centre, hospital and helipad for emergencies.

this fan is wearing a very old Rossi t shirt design.

this fan isn't even wearing a Rossi t shirt, just ear plugs. 

To wear earplugs was the best tip all weekend, but it was weird eating with them. You can hear all the crunching noises!!! Then you adjust to the noise and you need earplugs for your earplugs!!
