I don't have tickets - yet.
I'd love to go though.
Last year, I went to the inaugural F1 race... it
was cold and rainy. Still a very good time.
Its nice not stopping the race for weather.
Those turbo engines absolutely scream at 20K+ RPM.
Ear protection is absolutely necessary.
GREAT RACING THOUGH. Much better than CART or IRL.
PS Its very strange watching people race clockwise in Speedway.

actually f1 motors do not have turbos on them they are normally
asperated and run on hi test gas. they are all V-10's and spin
at 17,000 to 18,000 rpm. the renault works team for next year
are working on breaking that 20,000 rpm barrier! but you will never get the real numbers out of any of the teams,cause they are so secretive of there equipment. and yes i will be there
rooting my williams bmw team on.
