I was in Indianapolis this weekend attending Formula 1 US Grand Prix. It was impressive. You have to see it alive rather than on the TV. The cars are so noisy. The Stand B seat across the pitlane was a great place to watch the race but it was difficult to survive when the cars were heading toward the start: they all stopped across where I was and then roared the engines staying at where they were. When engines of 20 Formula 1 cars work at a high RPM you have to take care of your ears… From the stand I was able to see the start-finish line, the pits, the other side of the circuit, the award ceremony. The only thing I did not see from there was the first turn accident when Nick Heifeld was kicked up in the air and spinned a few times. I have pictures but I am not allowed to release them to public. The 12x optical zoom of a 2 megapixel Panasonic DMZ camera was very helpful.
