It was a huge success for sure. No doubt about it COTA did a great job!!!!
I took the shuttle around to a few GA spots before the race started, I'm impressed with the layout, the GA spots were some of the best seats in the house IMO.

Its pretty incredible that they got their shit together in time to make it all happen, it seemed like everyone doubted them and did everything they could to make sure it didn't happen.

Can't say enough about it, they really pulled it together and finished the build with all the bs going on. Don't know how packed it will be during the gp but it doesn't matter. Looks like it's going to be one hell of a good time. As Kirk said earlier it looked so slow on tv watching those cars hit the corners must have been insane for you guys that were there.

Made GP riders looks slow coming into the corners, the F1 cars stop on a dime

It was still an experience watching on the tube, seeing the cars locking the brakes, several drivers blowing the turn at 19 I think. It was crazy fun to watch, gonna try and get out there next year for sure.

Yah, 19 was a rush to sit at.

rex: yah, some of the GA spots were the best, but hte problem is that they are few and far between. Like on the straight coming out of turn 11 you can't get a location to see it anywhere along that straight. You have to be in stands or you can't see jack with the fences in your way.

It was still a riot and crazy that Sunday had about as many people there as a motogp race does in all 3 days combined. Place was packed.
