Here are my last batch of memories from my Circuit of the Americas Trip – sound clips, raw, unedited, pure sex. What was great about paddock passes/Turn 15 seats were that you were right in the gist of the actions.
Every time a bike fired up your chest was instantly palpitated by the vibrations of the pistons banging around, the hair of your nostrils begin to flare up with the smell of race gas and your skin begins to feel the immense heat given off of the exhaust tubes. But the sound, the sound is ungodly. Soichiro Honda had the perfect quote for such an occasion ‘The value of life can be measured by how many times your soul has been deeply stirred,’ and my soul was indeed stirred.
If you are a fan and always have thought about making it out to a race weekend I highly suggest you do it! You might not get another chance to see your favorite rider/team/person if you don’t!
