Thread: Sunday

    Default Sunday

    I hope this is a picture of swmbo surviving Sachenring for another year. We saw qualifying on Saturday too. Like many of these, it was hot and dirty.
    But what an event! We had seats in T4 and watched moto2 from them. Then we sat on the fence in t5 for motogp, and watched them pass about 15 feet away. Usually we buy GA and pay around euro 50. This year we upped our investment but won't do that again. From what I could tell they weren't accepting drachma ;-)
    Overall from where we are, we prefer Assen and Brno, but I work only 150 km from Chemnitz, and a lot of it is autobahn, so we go. Lots of drunk, sweaty Germans having a blast. Most even stay conscious all the way to the race. As is often the case at these, water is way more expensive than beer.
    I got caught by the camera going through Leipzig on the way home. But my last ticket was 4 years ago so I think I will be ok.

    Very cool. I'd love to see a Europe round...even though COTA and Laguna were absolute blasts.

    I'll try to get some more pics. I am not the family photographer but swmbo says she has some pretty dramatic shots of marquez, pedrosa and rossi in a row. until about 5 laps to go i thought rossi would overtake because he was stuck to pedrobot's rear. but then he lost a couple tenths and it was clear he had nothing for him. so we beat feet to the lot because it is a massive jam getting out of there. We left Chemnitz the back way and didn't even have a queue, ever. It was like being on a motorcycle at Laguna.
    And Jeremy we really want to go to COTA. Hopefully next year. And so you know we talked about how cool Laguna Seca was by comparison to the tracks we get to see, save for Assen, mainly for the weather which many times was 70f with a light breeze.
    Not so much over here. Even in the 80s it feels bad.
