Colorado-Utah 2010 Trip - Days 10 and 11

Sunday, May 30th and Monday, May 31st ‑ Salt Lake City, UT

We spent the next two days enjoying the racing activities at Miller Motorsports Park.  Since we had purchased a special ticket package offered through BMW, we were able to take advantage of VIP parking near our grandstand seats, as well as enjoy a specially catered lunch at the BMW hospitality tent each day.

Sunday was spent mainly watching the racers in the various classes doing practice laps.  They ran one race class that afternoon, a GT class.  During the lunch period on both Sunday and Monday, the pit lane area was opened to allow the fans the opportunity to walk through and see the race teams at work.

The World Superbike qualifying sessions were also held on Sunday.  The qualifying was run in three sessions, which sets the starting order for slots 9 through 16, then 5 through 8, and finally 1 through 4.  Monday was the big event -- the World Superbike races.  The racing was amazing.  I have watched the World Superbike races on television; however, until you can actually see them in person, you cannot appreciate how fast these riders are really going!
