Any wheel Sherlocks here? Any wheel Sherlocks here?

This is absolutely driving me insane. I’ve exhausted all of my google-fu and I’ve come up empty. The backstory: for Christmas last year my sister and I bought my mom some new tires. Great idea right? Well, sort of. During the install the tire guys said one wheel was bent slightly and that was probably the reason why…

It’s Back…. It’s Back….

Yesterday was the first day of F1 back in Austin, being that I’d gone and bought season tickets to the track, of course I’m going to be there.

Plan C? Plan C?

Is plan C every really the option to entertain? If you haven’t seen the Spanish Grand Prix I would recommend not reading ahead?

It’s all over now. It’s all over now.

Day two of another successful weekend at COTA, put it in the history books and read it to the school children. May 6th was race day for the Advance Auto Parts Sports Car Showdown at COTA. As sure as Mick’s relationship was done, it was all over from the moment that number 10 Wayne Taylor Racing Cadillac hit the…

Let’s Dance! Let’s Dance!

Event number two on my year of events at Circuit of The Americas crept up fast. Attending Moto Gp in the two weeks prior did have me back in weekend race mode, but it was still quick. Considering the last event had bikes and an F1 like carnival atmosphere, I wasn’t sure of what to expect from the IMSA Weathertech…

Anniversary: Day three Anniversary: Day three

How do you close out a three day anniversary that has had a few bumps and falls? Well, you start early and build a day that makes up for any failings that may of occurred in the first two. Race day is the only day left at the race venue to redeem yourself and come up smelling like roses. Sunday sure as hell did…

Anniversary: Day two Anniversary: Day two

I managed to get to the track earlier than the previous day, clearly a good thing. It made for a good start into day two of my three day weekend with COTA. If anything, day two of this weekend can be summed up in one word, COLD. It was as if someone had turned the ac down and just left it on the freeze setting. …

Anniversary: Day One Anniversary: Day One

Queue the duh-duh-dunn music for day one. It was all off to an auspicious start, alarm had gone off on time, tickets printed, and backpack packed. Then it hit me, the I’m not going anywhere till my stomach settles down blues. In a full year of attending COTA I have learned that I’d rather not spend too much time…

What do I get for year one? What do I get for year one?

Today is an anniversary of sorts for me and that sexy track called Cota. I spent all of last year going to every event as part of my season ticket pass. It was a remarkable experience, as up till that point I had never seen live racing trackside. It wasn’t even my idea, I was gifted tickets to the 2015 F1 race the…
