Well, it happened. Circuit of the Americas opened for its inaugural race weekend Friday, November 16, 2012! Racing is something I can share with my dad (he's a car guy/big fan). I'm all he's got, so I'm pretty sure he's glad I get into it. IT WAS AWESOME! Friday and Saturday were qualifying races and other various events; Sunday was US Grand Prix! In case you're wondering, there's NASCAR (american hobby.. think Jeff Gordon), Indy 500 (Helio Castroneves drives these), and then there's Formula One. F1 is the most watched motorsport in the world and this is the first track in the United States... a great one at that!
We had a blast!! We attending qualifying Saturday and the big race Sunday as we watched Lewis Hamilton take home the win! To make things better, it was Daddy's birthday over the weekend! Happy Birthday to you!!!!
