The cool evenings and light clouds were great for the sunsets last week, and I seemed to get a few okay photos. Strava running, and I had been meaning to see what the ride looked like, since I had just been "riding" it, totally clueless. MotoGP and V8 Supercars will be coming next year!! Man, I'd love to make either of those races! And they're a good bit more affordable, being only about 1/4 the cost of a full F1 weekend pass. And even better was today's first lap on the course, run by Mario Andretti in his John Player Special World Championship winning car, from 1979. Easily one of the most gorgeous cars ever... and just listen to the sound of that beast! Mario's lap was followed up with this lap by Jerome D’Ambrosio in a Renault RB30. I've "driven" the course in the new Codemaster's F1 2012 game, and it's a pretty amazing track even there. It should be awesome for both racing and spectating!
