And since the Track was en route to my Hotel I drove by to admire the view.
The tower is visible for miles away from the track, Like a shining Beacon for F1. So looking forward to seeing the track tomorrow. But for now heading into Austin to take in the city.15th November 2012, 13:50 at 1:50 pm #213009
@Glenn Great to see they’re making a big deal of it. I think the last pictures was a repeat of an earlier one, though.15th November 2012, 13:58 at 1:58 pm #213010

I loved the whole weekend. Having visited Austin many times before, I knew the town would be great. They rose to the occasion brilliantly. Then the transport worked, the volunteers on circuit and elsewhere were lovely, security was fine (as in not too nitpicky), the facilities at the circuit were generally Ok and the track looked wonderful and delivered a great race to watch. The fans were crazy and provided a great atmosphere. Fully recommend going to the event!!!
All my photos are on Flickr – they include the FOTA Fan Forum, a business event on the Thursday and 3 days at the track. As there were roaming seats for practices (all 3), got some shots from T1, although most were from T12, my seat for the race. I’ve also got some paddock/garage shots following a tour from Santander on the Sunday.

Watched the replay on TV and it doesnt do justice to the place.. the changes in elevation are great and they dont look as steep as they are on the tv angles…4th December 2012, 0:27 at 12:27 am #213022

A little late for this, but figure I’ll add anyway. What an amazing race and weekend.
What he said ^
Note: almost all my pics were taken with a Canon series 18-55mm kit lens with polariser. My friend who I went with actually bought a dslr for the event and Im sure he wasnt the only one there as a novice photter. Shows that with a little patience some surprisingly good shots can be obtained with only a modest amount of kit.4th December 2012, 0:44 at 12:44 am #2130234th December 2012, 1:29 at 1:29 am #213024
