Monday – Day One of USGP COTA week, and the tempo is already picking up. All the F1 containers have arrived and mostly put in place near and by the appropriate garages. In Pit Lane, the Caterham garage sign is gone, replaced by a track sign, but Marussia and three of the four driver’s signs are still in place. Those empty garages will be ‘repurposed’ including making more area for race marshals.
The weather was hot but with a brisk tempering breeze. Almost too much for my hat outside the track, but no problem in the Pits and Paddock.
Del Valle TX treated me to a beautiful sunset as I left the track for a good meal and more research. I had dinner with F&C Chief, Bill Armitage, and learned of some impressive training sessions and learning opportunities in store for the trackside marshals.
It’s going to be a great week!
