Tell me what you know about F1 racing. This is year two, and the whole culture seems to have consumed Austin, and it seems pretty cool. (Though I'm home sick this weekend so I'm watching from afar...lol).
Definitely good for the economy. There are some incredibly wealthy people who come in for this race, some some very pricey parties going on, but I like that they've also turned downtown into a Fan Fest atmosphere that's free - gives everyone an opportunity to enjoy.
A friend of mine met and posted pics with Gabi Gifford downtown last night. Wow. I'm not big on the whole celebrity thing, but that's pretty cool.
I've heard there are some traffic issues, but that's just always an issue in Austin...lol.
Anyone into this type of racing? As I understand it it's much larger outside of the US.
