No cycling this weekend. Formula One racing in Austin, Texas began Friday and for the first time my dad is watching it from the side-lines.
Still dark Friday morning, I took my Dad and Lulu to SF airport for their flight to Austin – Day One of the Formula 1 United States Grand Prix. At the last minute I handed them both ear plugs – they might come in handy – however hearing the “beautiful” roar of these cars is probably one of my dad’s favorite parts. I’m sure they are having an amazing time.
For all you race car enthusiasts, here is a 25min vintage documentary on Bently & Mercedes 1920 car racing. I discovered it after a little digging over at youtube.com.
