Monday Morning - Racing Time

So it is once again another Monday morning. For me this means attempting to get some writing or editing done. For anyone that had read my blog, you know I have issues blogging on a regular basis. This is something I want to correct in a serious way. Normally I felt compelled to post about writing related items, but no more. I will blog about what ever is on my mind. Today that is auto racing.

Now I have always been an auto racing fan. I participated in IRacing for a while, but due to budget reasons that had to stop. At one time in my life I was an extreme Nascar fan. I watched everything I could that had to do with the sport. Anymore I catch a few races here and there while keeping an eye on the results of races. I still have my favorite drivers in the series and I watch the races I enjoy, but to many of them have become follow the leader events.

The same can be said ab out F1 but I enjoy it so much more. I think it is the combination of them not being on an oval track and the shorter races that allow me to enjoy them more. There are more ways for the driver to screw things up. Yes the start of an F1 race can not be beat. Do I look for a crash at the start? Hell yeah i do, every one does. When they make all make it past turn one I am happy as well because you have usually seen some amazing driving for that to happen. Last year was kind of a bore. I would watch the beginning of the race and then change the channel 15 to 20 laps into the event. Why? Because by then the same team had a 15 second lead and were only racing between themselves most of the time. That got a real boring, real fast. I think the engine change had the most to do with that. Some teams took to the new engines better then others. With engine development frozen during the year last year, it make the season over before it got started.

However it is a new season and in two races we have had two different engine wins so at the moment we have a possibility of a battle this year.

Well enough blogging for today. Maybe tomorrow I will have something else worth talking about.
