My absolute favorite part of the weekend was not a race, but the exhibition of old Formula 1 cars that they sent around the track. Nothing compares to these cars - they are FAST and LOUD. There is so much power in these machine that you can feel the engine in your chest from 30 feet away, and you can hear exactly where they each are on the track. The most recent was the 2004 Schumacher Ferrari, going all the way back to a 1972 Ferrari driven by Jacky Ickx. The change in technology in that time was staggering, and while the late 90s/early 00s models sounded like angry hornets, the 70s model sounded like muscle. It was so cool, and outshone everything else we saw that weekend. It really got it set in our mind that we HAVE to see the F1 race when it comes to Texas next year. A track full of these beasts would be incredible.
