We spent 3 days in Valencia at the end of August. The air temperature was up around 38 deg C during the day and the track temperature went as high as 44 deg C.

What we managed to see of Valencia was stunning. Both the modern buildings being built on the old river bed and the old town centre (which was getting an update).

The race itself was a letdown, with serious organisational issues that need resolving. such as very heavy handed security, major access and viewing problems compounded by a lack lustre race. Maybe these things will be addressed for next year, but I will not be returning.

All the images of the cars were taken from our seats in the T19 grandstand at Nazeret because we were not allowed to shoot from anywhere else! That's why they are all so boringly alike.
