For all you racing fans, I know it isn’t America’s sport-NASCAR, but the first race from our beautiful Circuit of the America’s here in Austin starts in a few minutes. The review of the track is awesome and it should be an excellent Formula 1 race. The downside for Austin is the horrid traffic of a couple hundred thousand folks on our roads and especially I-35, which if you’re familiar with is a nightmare going through the downtown area. Surprisingly the whole city is out of earplugs, I transferred most of mine yesterday to another store that was completely out. Hotels are booked as far out as 50 miles I’m told and this should be a major boost to the local economy. Alright I’m off to work now.
Here’s a short review of the track:
It’s being broadcast on the Speed channel and Speed HD both. If you’ve got the time have a watch it should be a good show. The spectators are enjoying simply fabulous weather this weekend too, the lucky bastiches. Just in case you were wondering tickets on the grass, that means NO SEATS go for $350. I think I’ll stick to watching it on the tube.
-Carry On and G-d Bless Texas !!
