Not F1, but World Series by Renault (Hungaroring 2007)
There were some old F1 cars though ;)

The first ever turbo F1 car :)

Thank you. :)

No problem :)

Polish fans really make a good atmosphere, they were very friendly, singing all the time and they made such a big noise every time when Kubica appeared on the screen :D

I've only had the chance to attend CART in Vancouver and Portland and Speed GT at Portland. Wish we had F1 here on the west coast of NA rather than all the way over in the east.

Turtle for the win. I really want to go to another GP, Monaco will be ticked off my list before I die or F1 dies, whichever comes first. Went to silverstone years ago (Mika won!), was an awsome spectacle.

Before I headed to Indianapolis I thought it would be a waste to just go for qualifying since I couldn't really afford the ticket prices for the actual race. Now I'm very glad I went because I got to see and hear the awesome cars and see Schumi drive in person before he retired. And now that the USGP is gone I'm even more glad I went. I won't pass up an opportunity like that again.

Don't get me wrong, I'd drive my ass off for an F1 race. But Seattle ---> Indy is a bit much for me :(

Seattle --->Vegas/Long Beach/LA/Vancouver though :) Come on Bernie, f*ck Quebec move to Vancouver!

I'd be the same way. Luckily I live about 2 hours from Indy so it was all very worth it. If you ever have a chance to visit the track I highly recommend it. The place is massive and they have a great museum in the infield. Maybe I should post up the pics I took from in there too?

I tried to hit several races a year - F1, IRL, Champ Car, etc. Got tons of pics but I never seem to have time to sort through them all!

As promised the Indianapolis museum pics. Sorry for having parts of cars cut off, it was packed in there and that made it really hard to get good shots.

Not a racing car but I figured an old Bentley would be appreciated by some, myself included.

Thought I'd post some photos I took during the Australian GP last weekend. I'm not the greatest photographer and a lot of the photos were taken from behind fences so they aren't so great. But still, I hope you enjoy.

Some photos from Practice 3 on Saturday. (Sorry, most of them are from the same angle)

Clearly Australia doesn't care about F1 and their race should be replaced with some country filled with over compensating billionaires!

^^ Off topic, but did Perkins lose the JD sponsorship?

Nah, Perkins still has the JD sponsorship. That was a car prepared by Perkins Racing, but for some reason Mack were the sponsor of the V8 for the Ultimate Speed Comparison. Jack Perkins was driving the car and was wearing the JD overalls, but I guess because he isn't one of the drivers for the JD team anymore it was ok for Mack to sponsor the car.

Btw, the V8 won 2 of the challenges, the road car one and I'm not sure who won the last challenge.
