Just out of curiosity; which driver are you voting for your FanBoost?

I'm debating between Jarno Trulli or Takuma Sato.

Very fun. I'd appreciate more audio from the cars.

Really? I had the opposite reaction but maybe it was a "Fox 1" thing. I often had a hard time hearing the announcers on Fox because the sound guys seemed intent on overlaying EVERYTHING so heavily with the sound of the running cars. I'ts nice to hear, but it doesn't have to be constant. I'd like to hear the announcers too, interspersed with intense cockpit sounds from time to time. They need to do a better job getting vocals "on top of" the ambient noise instead of buried in it, and then having periods where the announcers shut up for a minute and let the race sounds have full reign.

+1. Audio sucked on the broadcast. It seemed like they wanted to make up for the lack of engine sound by drowning out the commentary with amplified tire and motor/gear noise. I missed much of what the announcers were saying.

Is anyone going to the Formula E race in Long Beach on the 4th? I'm headed down and I'm going to be meeting a group of friends at Famous Dave's Bar-B-Que between 1pm-3pm for a meal between the practice session and the race. (Its at race turn 3). Were meeting out back on the patio, and it would be cool to meet some others there as well.

With all the Leafs in SoCal, there is nobody heading to Long Beach to watch the race?
