Default I'll be a Flag Marshal at the Lone Star Le Mans

That's right, going to be a flag marshal at the Lone Star Le Mans next week here at Circuit of the Americas in Austin. Super excited! FIA WEC has a 6 hour race into the night on Saturday, TUDOR has a 3 hour race Saturday, there are a bunch of supporting races on Thursday and Friday, and qualifying in between. 16-17 hour days for me, but I don't care. Going to be awesome. My first time as a marshal, doing it right at COTA. I'll probably be on yellow flag duties all three days, but hopefully I can hop on blue at some point for a bit. I'm stoked.

Here's a video from last year's WEC race, racing starts like 1/3 the way in:

Congrats.

When I 1st read this I pictured when Donna (Tori Spelling) was a debutant at the ball in the original 90210. [Yes, I'm that old and it was my only TV experience w/ TX.]
This looks much better.

Thanks

It wasn't to hard to get in there, if anyone is interested for the future. Formula 1 is the hard one to do.

Yeah the RV lot is directly next to T11 this year. The straight from T11 to T12 I'm pretty sure is the longest one and where the LMP1's will be reaching 200mph. So you would most definitely get an earful there!

I just found out I'll be marshaling at T12 Friday and Saturday. Should be exciting seeing them braking after that long stretch! Damn I'm pumped! I've been watching old races all day long lol.

I had a great time. I worked Turn 16 the first day, Turn 12 the next two. I rotated through flagging positions (yellow flagger, blue/green/white/everything else flagger, and observer), which is actually good because you wouldn't get too tired. The WEC race was good from a marshal standpoint, tons of blue flagging, and the captain and observer were busy with car contacts and track limits. I really got a sense of importance, it's pretty crazy that you hold some lap times and car positions in your hands when determining track limit calls. I was able to get into the paddock, which was cool. I was able to break away during WEC quals and an IMSA Porsche GT3 Championship Cup race, so I did snap a few photos. I am sooooo tired and sore and it was super hot and long days and all that, but it was a really great experience. I'll be doing more for sure. MotoGP in April, and I'll definitely be doing this event again next year.

Here are a couple of the photos I took:

Formula 1 is here next month, and I'm going to marshal that too!

That multi color Carerra is speaking to me, the photo is beautiful.
What lens and speed?
