Hey, Oppo! My fantastic girlfriend is taking me to the TUDOR United Sportscar Championship race at Virginia International Raceway this weekend - a great way to turn 24.

I've never been to a race of any kind before, though I've loved cars since before I could talk. I wanted to go to a sports car race because I can't imagine anything cooler than seeing Ferraris, Porsches, McLarens, Astons and the like being flogged like they ought to, around a beautiful racetrack, by professional drivers.

So, what advice do you have for me? Where should we watch from? What should we bring? (chairs? ear plugs? water?) When should we get there? Et cetera, et al.

Thanks, Oppo! I'm psyched!
