They beat me to it. While away from my computer this weekend at a wedding reception, I came up with the idea of a piece on all the former USGP venues. This would be a great way to segue into this weekend’s race in Austin. But alas, the official Formula One website and F1Fanatic beat me by a day and came out with their own, excellent, summaries.
For you kids playing at home, we have hosted F1 races at the following circuits:
- Indianapolis (1950-60, 2000-07)
- Sebring (1959)
- Riverside (1960)
- Watkins Glen (1961-80)
- Long Beach (1976-83)
- Las Vegas (1981-82)
- Detroit (1982-88)
- Dallas (1984)
- Phoenix (1989-91)
So what are your memories? Watching the greats at Watkins Glen? Sitting in a Las Vegas casino parking lot? The tire debacle at Indy?
And for you BBQ aficionados going to the Austin race, a friend shared the definitive BBQ eatery list with me.
Finally, if you want to see the Sunday race from a fellow Hoon’s perspective, follow me on Twitter.
