F1 was great today

I had a great time at the Cota track in Austin Tx. Those cars gave a different scream than the Indy cars. Can't wait til next years race. Now it's time for some good ol' Tx BBQ at Saltlick.

COTA looks like an amazing track with the undulation and link up of turns 16-18 etc, would love to drive it one day.

Looked like a full house while watching the race

It was a blast! I'm really glad I got to hear the V8s again in person before they go to the V6 turbos next year.

They even had a dodge viper growl around the track. It sounded so deep. It was one of the pace cars. Yes awesome track. No it wasn't packed though.

Pace cars? We don't do pace cars. Only safety cars.

Ok I said it wrong but i knew what i meant. The safety car that took his lap before the race and led those three laps after the crash.

Man I would have loved to watch the race. Instead I got a nice view of the weather lady on the TV for 4 hours straight. Ugh.

Which was likely the next Viper before the MB/Chrysler split. So he was 10% right.

Thanks for the correction on the car. My viewing spot was too far away for specifics.
