I packed loads of drinks but never seemed to have enough with how hot it was combined with the amount of walking I was doing. Really appreciate the offers for water.

The 4 days just flew by. I absolutely ADORE Road Atlanta. Proper old school, the viewing is incredible, it's visually beautiful and any track which features a mini forest on the inside is always up the top of my list!

To top it all off, the support races were great and the main event itself was fantastic. Spent what seemed to be the most exciting part at the chicane- great action spot with loads of passing and having seating there is really appreciated too.
I'm glad you enjoyed it! If you meet up with us next time, we'll give you a few tips for viewing and getting around.

Wow that sounds amazing! I've never been out of the country but Brands and Spa are both near the top of my list.

I got a Road Atlanta hat and I like it a lot. It is just a small track outline on the front.

While we're on consumer advice, those Rd Atl hoodies are amazing.

I bought nothing, but a program, for the first time in years. It's still in the package with the sticker (and a little dust). It'll all probably stay right where it lays until I move it next to the program and shirt from the 2005 USGP.

Wow, that's brilliant! Sounds like the Masters Historic Festival or HSCC Superprix weekend. I think a few of our regulars over here compete at The Mitty.

Will do- that's much appreciated.

You'd love Brands. I'm afraid to say Spa has been taken over by the F1 brigade so features lots of tarmac run-off, high debris fences and getting around is difficult. Still a great track, and worth ticking off the bucket list if you were to tour Europe, but the spectator experience can feel a little underwhelming at times.

I've seen a couple of guys from across the pond there. It's a great little event that coincides with my birthday so it's an easy hall pass.
