They do indeed crash, in quite spectacular form sometimes. Just ask Grosjean.

Booze - there is most definitely booze.

There were one or two members that went last year, I know Texasmr2 did (but he isnt around that much) and Im not really sure who else.....

As for Transport, i thin this link might help - http://circuitoftheamericas.com/transportation

Sorry Ive no more first-person experience for this track.....

Maybe better to ask Hamilton, Alonso, Webber, Maldonado and Schumacher about Grosjean.

whazzzup, does your man follow any team or driver?

10 pages if we convince her to post a pic, and 20 pages if she's cute. :hehe:

Jane is nice and all but I don't think we ever were able to pry a picture out of her.

@stonemonkey - i honestly have no idea. he doesn't really talk about car stuff with me.

and no pics - in the offchance he browses this forum, it wouldn't be much of a surprise gift!

That's not an excuse... you can private message me directly and then I'll share them with anyone on the forum that pays me $0.50 cents via paypal. If you're cute, I can probably get $1.50 via paypal, and we can split the difference... the profits may get you at least one Friday pass ticket!

Now about this "he doesn't talk to you about car stuff" that's not a good way to begin a relationship, lasting, loving relationships share their passions and are inclusive not exclusive. :yes: So work on that with him.
