Beautiful. I'm very impressed by the overall finish and appearance of the circuit. It may not have the flair of a place like Abu Dhabi, but you can tell that a lot of effort has been put into its construction. And those aerial shots are stunning - the place looks like it will be a blast to drive at! I sincerely hope they will have HPDE sessions at this circuit

The pit walk was excellent! It was quite something to hear the cars fire up from that close.

I'll post some photos when I can. Going to be a fantastic race!

I ate down on 6th street. What a place!

Now I'm at my hotel about 40 minutes out of downtown. I'll meditate tonight to prepare myself for the traffic nightmare tomorrow.

I can't wait to see the track and the cars in person!

I think it'll be much more than just the elevation change though.
If you look at some pics it looks like theres a small rise & fall right at the crest.
So the cars will have this HUGE compression, ....then an unweighting right at the turn.

Should make for some very interesting racing.

Americans...
What's wrong with the traditional horn sound?

I recall Brazil Interlagos has a different pit entry siren too...
