Some of you may recall my adventures in attending the US Grand Prix in Indianapolis, IN this summer. For others, a brief recap. Michelin showed up to the race with the wrong tires and declared that they would not run the race unless the course was changed (this was the morning of the race). This is against the rules set forth by the FIA. So, Michelin withdrew its teams from the race and only six cars (out of 24) competed.
Ok, onto the cool news. I received a refund check from Michelin for the price of my race tickets on the day before Rita hit. I sent the check back in exchange for tickets for next year's race. So I guess my vacation plans are set for next year now. I am bound and determined to see a real F1 race. Also, things are looking good that I will have the money set aside to get my van fixed for the trip and subsequent camping at the race track.
