    I like how they have a Toyota on their flyer. Did they make these in 2009?

    Also, weird that they come out and say they copy corners from other tracks on their track map. Where are the overtaking zones going to be? Turn 1 looked promising, but the uphill might make that difficult since the braking zone is shortened. Turn 11 and 12 claim they are overtaking zones, but the run ups look pretty short.

    I'm stoked for this weekend...Just to see lap times improve as the weekend progresses...correct me if I am wrong but as of now none of the drivers have physically driven the circuit yet outside of playing in F1 21012 right??...

    The course doesn't seem to offer a lot of great passing areas as buh_buh mentioned...But we will have to see I guess once they all arrive...

    Only one DRS zone

    Alonso had a simulator at his house, I think most teams have detailed simulators of the track, Pirelli even had a video of their simulation. FP1 will be boring but the rest of the weekend should be exciting as more and more rubber gets laid down.

    I'm flying to Houston, renting a car, and staying in San Antonio. It's not much longer of a drive to the track, and I'm told it's way nicer than Austin. Hotels are still cheap there, even on the riverwalk.

    Austin is a younger funner party crowd, SA is more tourist/mature friendly.

    LOL, Westboro getting in on some of that media.

    http://www.pitpass.com/fes_php/pitpa...s_art_id=47893

    A group of religious fanatics plan to picket the Circuit of the Americas this weekend in order to... "remind this nation that God hates the wicked people of this land of vain idolaters and that they shall be turned into Hell"

    The infamous Westboro Baptist Church faces a busy weekend as, other than the Grand Prix, its flock is due to picket the Grace United Church of Christ in Abilene, St. John's Episcopal Church in Abilene, the First United Methodist Church in Abilene, the Emmanuel Church (Methodist) in Abilene, and gigs in Kansas City featuring Bruce Springsteen and Aerosmith.

    Explaining, the reason for the picket, of which there have been 49,254 to date, on its website, the group proclaimed: "WBC will picket Formula 1 racing at The Circuit of The Americas in Austin, TX to remind this nation that God hates the wicked people of this land of vain idolaters and that they shall be turned into Hell. These sporting events resemble the patriotic worship-the-flag pep rallies masquerading as soldier's funerals in that this Bible-ignorant fools worship these race car drivers like they are little gods! Shame on these people for worshiping these athletes instead of following the plain commandments of their God. They ought to obey today before it is too late. WBC knows they will not, never the less, we will kindly warn them to flee the wrath to come. These are the last days of all, Doomed America. Wake up before you find yourselves cast into the deep pit of endless fire!"

    That will teach Kimi and Seb to swear on the podium.

    Looks like the race will only be broadcast on TSN2 @ 5:00pm MST. Are there any pubs in town that will be broadcasting it live @ noon?
