F1 at Circuit of the Americas

Post by Trigger » Fri Nov 16, 2012 3:49 pm

Just watching a bit of first practice and it looks an epic circuit ! That uphill first corner looks like it will be an interesting dash from the lights ! Also alot of quick weight transfer leading to a fair amount of spinning. Should be a fun race for once !

Hope you guys who are there enjoy it.

The track is amazing, we walked the entire circuit yesterday.  Going to be lots of balled up track toys when they start doing HPDEs - so many abrupt camber changes, blind lines, etc.  I would love to run it in the Atom.

That twisty section looks awesome - high speed direction change - better train those neck muscles before you do mr Payne

Just got back to blighty after a fantastic weekend in Austin with CalScot, FeistyColumbian and EricHowe. 

As others have said an amazing circuit and a really really exciting race.
