They did an AWESOME JOB with crowd control. I was at the inaugural TMS weekend which was TOTAL HELL 6+hrs to get out.
Compared to that COTA was a dream. I had the free parking at the Travis Expo center.. turn 11E is I think the furthest walk from the front gate. We split as soon as the race ended, within <1.5hrs of standing up we were in our car and out on the road back to Dallas.
Friends that sat next to us had the $150 (I think) extra parking had zero lines and they were 1hr ahead of us.
Another friend had the $30 airport parking and he was about 20-30mins ahead of me (but he was also in turn 1, a LOT closer to the exit)...
Anyway... what an awesome track, awesome race, and awesome weekend!!!

I saw all the luxury RVs along the back straight. A few 458s parked behind the RVs too! The coolest setup was one that had a roof deck with a big screen TV mounted on it. That's gotta be a sweet way to watch the race.

Don't forget the part where it costs 15K to get an RV spot for the F1 weekend.

Seriously???!!!???

Will your accomplishments be worth remembering once you have passed? 11B

The greatest gift ever given, was our Salvation, the release from the bonds of addictions, and sins. To rise above the petty things that hold us down.
