Okay, finally got my camera back!
Here are some shots of the COTA facility and the lap. I wasn't allowed to take a video, but I tried to snap as many pictures as possible along the way. Unfortunately all I had was a point-and-shoot, so quality isn't that great. I'll add captions when I have time.
As you can see, they're working feverishly to get everything completed by race weekend. It's quite impressive. Standing on top of the Turn 1 hill is pretty awe-inspiring. You can literally see the entire track from here, with downtown Austin in the background. The camera doesn't really capture the elevation...eye level at the apex of Turn 1 is higher than the roof of the main grandstand.
