    I won't be there this year, haven't been training/riding much with young Max and all the house stuff we've been dealing with but here's a shot of me from 2015 (repost).

    But there's a bigger point here. The 1-series is the last car that BMW engineered before the Germans, as a car-making culture, fell out of love with driving.

    You'd be surprised. If you're in the pack, there's a ~20% energy savings on account of the draft.

    looks like avg just under 8 minutes. 10 laps in 79 minutes. I think I heard a 7 minute lap was a good one.

    Pretty respectable considering an econo rental runs 3:00 flat out.

    You probably could, don't try to lead too much though and you'll probably be fine, it's leading that's the worst part.
