Not much to add here, Mid Ohio was as always enjoyable, and considerably more enjoyable than it was last year when my dog Jack died. Speaking of which I cannot wait for the season to be over and we go find (rescue) a new big dog puppy. I love our two cats, Widget and Bean, immensely. But a dog has another quality I love and have missed since Jack died. However, it's taken me a long time to get over Jacks' death. This might sound odd to many folks, but it was easier to come to terms with my Father's death vs my dog Jack.

VIR is always enjoyable, but oh my oh my it was hot. The smells that permeate the open car window on the way to the track are something else. I couldn't live there, far too humid and I don't need to be reminded of hurricane season each year (I did grow up in the UK so the weather systems are similar) and I enjoy my cool Northern California coastal air.
But it's extremely pretty in Virginia.

Next up Road Atlanta. See you there.

I know I haven't exactly screamed to the world (or Da Vorld) "I have a blog" but just to keep this thing current and to maintain a habit of adding verbiage, I have updated my website with my visual take on the USGP at Laguna Seca on July 21-23...
Cause for a celebration perhaps?

Mid Ohio up next. The AMA Superbike races are taking place at Lexington and It will be interesting to see how the new track surface affects the riders and their times. Apparently they have all new curbing so that should be a delight for the eyes, photographically speaking. This race also has some poignancy being that whilst I was here last year my dog Jack died. He was simply wonderful. Go see Jack!
