After the first lap that was one boring race! Even the RCAF flyover was boring!

Tad, rain shortened the Nascar race.

Reilly, at the Nascar race the flyover of the human cannonball was exiting!

Tad; They do on Road Courses, but not ovals because of the constant
high speed. Same with Indy Cars, They race in the rain on Road Courses but not ovals.

I think Formula 1 cars have as much in common with ordinary cars as I do compared to Alex or Tommy

Another narrow, claustrophobic track for the Canadian GP.

Looks purpose-built and fun to drive, but not so great to race on. Functionally, hardly any different than tracks such as Long Beach and Monaco.

Barriers run close to the circuit and many experienced drivers have been caught out by them. A particularly famous part of the circuit is the wall on the outside of the exit of the final chicane before the start/finish straight. In 1999 the wall, which bears the name Bienvenue au Québec ("Welcome to Quebec") giving it the nickname "Mur du Québec" (Quebec Wall), ended the race of three Formula One World Champions, Damon Hill, Michael Schumacher and Jacques Villeneuve along with FIA GT champion Ricardo Zonta. Since then the wall has been nicknamed "The Wall of Champions". In recent years 2009 world champion Jenson Button (2005) and four time World Champion Sebastian Vettel (2011, during free practice) have also fallen victim to the wall.

And then, Alonso, on his 300th Grand Prix start, gets the DNF.
The next set of tracks should prove much more exciting!

Haha, yes, we all have the same kinds of parts, but their parts are just better.

We all have a driver, their drivers are better.

We all drive on roads, but their roads are better.

We all spend money on our sport, but they spend more.

Speed costs money, how fast do you want to go?

Nice ones Tarbuster!!! I couldn't find my Long Beach GP stuff, but here's one from long ago; my brother was a pretty famous DJ in Seattle and could get me press passes almost everywhere.
John Watson for the victory!
