United States Grand Prix – Austin Texas.

This year the Rocky Mountain Sidewinders were well represented at the USGP in Austin; From left to right, Tom Pane, Al Woodward, Leah (flag wearer) Ed Kajko, Andrew Macdougall, Ken Provasi, Ed Shuler (kneeling), John Glover, Mike Forster (behind John) and Nick Boley, all made the trip.

The flag wearer (Leah) is a soldier and Colorado native from nearby Fort Hood military base.

Rain made the event one of the toughest ever for the corner marshals. It started raining Friday morning and the rain was pretty much continuous until race morning.

F1 Qualifying was run on rain tires, one of the Porsche Cup races was cancelled and the Historic F1 cars had their sessions cancelled.

When cars did go on course, there was plenty of action as cars spun and ran off course with the occasional wall impact.

The race was exciting, Rosberg led for a few laps, Vettel, Riccardo, Kyvat et al put on a good show. Ultimately, Lewis Hamilton won the race and the World Driving Championship.

In spite of the weather, we all had a good time. It was great reconnecting with old friends John Bowling, Erin Ebelmesser, Patrik Lundin, John O’Hara and Gary Tomlin. We had some new experiences, made some new friends and are already planning on attending next year’s race.
