F1 fan in Virginia

Post by e10rice » 02 May 2008, 14:45

Hello to all on this Forum. I'm been an F1 fan for the past 14 years. Its pretty sad being the only F1 one fan that i know of in my local area. I frequently leave the bar to head home and watch Friday practice / Sat. qual., and stay up late into the morning to watch the races before heading to bed for 4 hours of sleep before getting up for work the next day. Most of my friends don't understand and and my wife thinks i should just watch the re-broadcast later in the day (yeah right!). Its a passion and i hope to pass on the passion to everyone of my kids and people i meet along the way. And of yeah KIMI is the GREATEST!!!!!!!
Go Kimi Go!!!!

Hello e10rice, very welcome to our forum. It's shame for you to be on distant time zone but you're right. Live race is something else, rewatch is something else :)

Welcome again and yes, Kimi the greatest :thumbsup:

Yes definitely. One more week and I'll be there on the circuit. I hope US GP will again be in the calender.

So do i. I never got the chance to go. I think if they can't make it work at Indy then go some where else in the US. Heck if i had the money i'd build a track myself.
