    I was reading about it and, apparently, there isn't any parking. You have to take a shuttle from Austin out there. I know approximately where it is and I think that's about a 25 - 30 minute ride. That's going to be a mess.

    No. To be honest, I've only watched one race this year.

    Not many creepier. Remember the Nazi/Max Mosley hooker scandal a few years ago? Also creepy.

    It's been a good season though.

    Those can't be Bernie's kids, he has to have hired a donor like Michael Jackson did for his. Anyway, was hoping to go to the race with the excuse of visiting family in the area, but work got busy so that put an end to that. Been a good season, teams other than Ferrari, McLarenMercedes and Red Bull have been competitive and Kimi Raikonnen has been a hoot as cranky as he's been on the team radio and in post-race interviews.

    Formula One is HUGE in the rest of the World, and he is obscenely wealthy... Power & wealth attract the hot European poon ....Matter of fact, his daughter was the one that bought the Spelling Mansion for $90 million not too long ago....

    I used to follow F1 like a mental patient back in the 80's when they raced in Long Beach.... I watch it now more for the sheer amazement of the technology they employ these days... The competition hasn't really been all that exciting for quite some time

    I dig F1 racing, and rally car racing as well. The Euro's do motorsports better than we do, except for drag racing.
