Indy wasn't a joke. The people that ran the event and certain folks at the helm of F1 are a joke. I saw plenty of great racing at the Indy events. Not to mention it was the fastest F1 track. The surface was totally suited for an F1 car, they built the road course specifically for F1 and there are certain standards a track has to live up to to be an F1 track. Width, run off, proper curbing, etc....
I can't wait to see how it goes in Austin. I hope to be there but I am sure the first year will be a complete madhouse.
I can't wait!!! Considering we're about 3 miles away from the track right now I'm sure its going to be crazy around here. I don't think it will really hit me HOW big this is going to be till those last few weeks leading up to it. Who wants to rent a room?? LOL
Formula One will not be here long. I wish it would stay but I imagine after two years they will leave again. That organization just doesn't seem to like racing here. It is awesome to watch though. Man those little engines scream.
