Default be awake by a Formula 1, coooool!

i live in montreal,

as you probably all know, this is the Canada Grand prix this week end,

i live just in front of the track, may be a quarter mile from it, (the casino is in diagonal, where the long strech is,

i was sleeping when sudenly i hear the first F1 take the long strech, accelerating ..

i could hear the sound of the wind that it made at 335kmh and the engine...
undescriptible.. i think its one of the best way to be awaked!!

its sound like a jet with a 18000rpm engine, i can hear them window closed with tv on


this day will be a good day!

mmm, im not here to say BS,

ok, the long strech is between the casino and the trees, the last chicane before the finish line is on the left of the pics, more on left i can see paddock(from back)

so the strech is parrallel to the highway 132, this is why i can hear them from the beginning of that strech,especially when qualif, theres only one car on that section, so you hear him shift from 1st to 7th gear in just few seconds.i cant do better for proof,
i cant swim the other side without getting busted lol


cheers
