Spent Sunday/Monday at the track. It was one of those events where the weather looks like it's probably going to be terrible and then ends up being awesome.

It's always surprising how quickly the paddock empties out toward the end of the event. My final session only had a handful of cars in it. You become so accustomed to the track being so busy and loud and the atmosphere so vibrant that after the last session of the last day the quiet is almost startling.

If you're one of the lucky people who are not in a huge hurry to get home there's nothing like cracking a beer (any oktoberfest variety will work this time of year), taking one last sit in the old camping chair and watching the sunset. All good things must come to an end, but there's no need to rush it.
