Kids' soccer teams kept winning yesterday so it's all day soccer tournament today too.  Which is, of course, great, but...

 

...it woulda been really cool to get out there.  I watched it live streaming some yesterday and it was pretty interesting,

Yep. It's good racing. Took the boy for the last 3 hours of the race. It's a good series with legit,  fast race cars, run very professionally ... more so than some other series in some ways. I don't understand why it's not a bigger deal than it is or what the distinction is that makes it a series where nobody goes even when it's free. These are real racing teams fully supported with large crews of mechanics, numerous engineers, etc.

We saw maybe 15 other fans the entire time we were there, and we roamed freely everywhere  - Main GS, Paddock, the Tower, both bridges, and we went all the way out to T9.  The only thing I wish they'd do differently is breaking it into 2 days, but that's not a deal breaker.

Yeah in the wide shots, the granstands were all completely empty.  Like, 100% empty.  But it looked like a dozen or so collected on the bridges at any given time, which would be a cool view since we're not allowed there during other racing series.

I went out there yesterday for an hour or so. Backed my truck into one of the camper spots on the straight and watched them go by for a bit from the bed. Then we drove around the track and watched from the truck at a couple of spots.
