Grand Prix 2

Well, the Grand Prix was pretty impressive. Especially that crash in the first lap.

The advertising puzzles me. Billboard cigarette advertising’s been banned for years in this state. But the rule appears to be "if it’s the Grand Prix, it’s okay." Hmmm. At least the government warning has to be proportionally increased with the size of the ad, so you’ve got a huge, 90,000 point font saying "SMOKING KILLS" next to it.

The pitstops visits were very fast, of course. Ten or fifteen seconds to refuel and change the tyres. So why is it that mechanics always take so long to repair cars? If they really tried hard, they could be finished in a matter of seconds.
