Wink Just got back Form F1 USGP!!

The best time EVER!!!

I still can't beleive that I actually had a chance to dee an f1 Race in person. Words cannot describe the atmosphere, the feeling. There is nothing else like it. I meet some of the nicest people.

Big thanks to Paul Szuba from P and L motorsports for pulling it all together. U r the man PAUL!


I was seating in BOX 11 Row A seat 3, 50ft from the finish line. Just awesome, I got to see all of the pit action, the restart. OH and that nasty crash. Ralph Schumaher went into the wall in turn 13, about 100-150 ft from where I was sitting. It happened so fast! He must have nailed that wall at about 100-130 MPH. Just unreal.


Just awesome time, and I highly recomend it to everyone!!


I saw two GC8 on the way, a black and a silver.

That's totally aweome

I watched the whole thing on TV, but I'm sure there's nothing like being there at the standing start of an F1 race. Probably some of the sweetest sounds to a car enthusiast.

Default Silver FAST wrx!

F1 was great yesterday... great action in front of me and my dad in H Stand.

Driving to the race, westbound from Columbus on I-70, some FAST silver WRX flew past me. I saw an Injen sticker and an Ohio plate I think and the passenger was using a camcorder. Whoever you are, your ride is mucho caliente, and you drive crazy FAST! Props! Hope you had fun!

On the way down there was a group of cars wrb rex, volvo S60, big black truck, going at 95-100mph and then some...

I kept up for a while but some tool in an silver S4 wagon felt he needed to pass and cut off everyone. Even at 90-100 mph he would make a pass and then cut hard.

Two Words: douche bag.

anyway, race was great, got home and watched it all over on Speed....

ps. for the tool in the S4. That is not cool, no reason to tail gate and cut people off when everyone was going as fast as possible.
No joke, he cut me off and I was doing 100mph. Not safe or cool.

It was a blast!

I didn't meet any scooby owners though. And they didn't let me park in the corral, I had to park in the infield.

Oh, and I found out Sat. night that my hotel room was unavailable because people that were only reserved friday weren't leaving. I drive 4.5 hours to find out I have no place to stay. Fun!

The weekend was full of craziness, but it was still a good time!

This was the best weather evAr for F1 at Indy.

I got many up close pics of DC and his car I will be posting in 'motorsports' when I get them hosted. On Friday his car stopped just before t8 where he pushed it behind the barriers right next to the spectator fence. So close I coulda peed on it

Had a good time and will be back for number 6.
