IRL @ the track formerly known as Sears Point

This weekend Kathy and I are heading out to Cali to watch the roundy-roundy kids attempt to turn the wheel both ways for a change at the PEAK Antifreeze & Motor Oil Indy Grand Prix of Sonoma County. Whew, that's a mouthful.

In preparation I just dug out the Scanner and headsets that I purchased for the Daytona24 a few years ago. I took a couple of minutes to remember how to connect everything and to find a couple of missing parts, but now I think I have everything.

If you have never "heard" a motorsport event with a scanner, you are missing one of the most interesting aspects of the race. Hearing the teams discuss strategy, tactics, and problems gives a view of the event that even TV can't match.
