I am not what you would call a fan of racing. I've been to a couple of races (because that's what you do when you live in a small town), but I've never so much as gone out of my way to watch a race on TV.
A few years ago, I came this close to driving up to Montreal for an F1 race. Not because we needed to see F1, but because a group of us were pathetically ensnared in working conditions that made us want to scream. And if you're going to scream, it may as well be at cars moving faster than anything you're standing beside should. We ended up not going for a couple of reasons, but that time that we almost took a road trip to Montreal is one of my most cherished almost memories of something that would have been cool if we'd done.
I just finished watching this video about the new F1 rules that are coming into effect this year. It's very well done, excellently animated, and very informative. If F1 turns out to be this cool, I may have to start watching it.
You had me at turbo boost.
